Sunshine Street Party

The big day dawned for our street party and guess what?
The sun came out.

There may have been a chill wind blowing but the sun shone from the time we started putting out the tables, through the festivities, and finally setting at around 8pm when we packed away.

It was a wonderful day, organised on a whim by one of our neighbours who pushed a piece of paper through everyone's door asking if anyone would be interested in having a street party.

That was three weeks ago and more than 20 people arrived for the first meeting.

My mum was one of the chief organisers and I helped her out on the craft table where we helped the younger children decorate bunting and make crowns.

We even got a visit from our Olympic Torchbearer, Nick Giles who patiently waited while everyone in the street had their photo taken with him and the torch.

Every child uner 16 was given a medal to remember the event.

Overall, a wonderful day.
Here's to the next Jubilee in ten year's time.

I wore:
Trainers: Converse
Trousers: Zara
Top: Top Shop
Bodywarmer: Primark


  1. Wow where are you guys?
    There wasn't a blue bit of sky to be seen in London (where I am).
    I have hopped here from Netmums

  2. Oh my goodness, that must have been one glorious street party! I'm a bit jealous :)

  3. Looks like you all had a wonderful time and what a great way to celebrate the jubilee.

    Looks like you had a marvelous day and even got to carry the torch.

  5. How exciting, getting to pose with the torch bearer and the weather looked far better than ours! x

  6. It looks like you had a great day and a lovely community event. And you looked cool in your red, white and blue! xxx

  7. I love street parties and how cool to meet the torch-bearer AND to have your picture snapped with the cardboard queen.
