The Royal Wedding

For Harry and Meghan's big day I made sure the front room was decked out with bunting.
 My old floral Primark scarf was put to good use draped across the window

and my wardrobe choices when getting dressed this morning were red, white and blue, just like they were back in April 2011.

Unlike William and Kate's wedding this one wasn't going to be shown on a big TV screen in our city centre so it was at home G and I settled down with some nibbles to watch the nuptials.

I made a lovely refreshing drink by mixing
100ml lime cordial
300ml apple and raspberry juice drink
one bottle of 750ml elderflower and rose 

and to finish off I made a variation on these eclairs using vanilla whipped cream.

The whole day was joyful, it was what weddings should be about, full of love and optimism. May they have a life full of happiness.


  1. It sounds like you celebrated in style. It was a lovely wedding and it seemed to go without a hitch.

  2. Lovely, I watched with my mum and her neighbours, it was a superb day x

  3. Gorgeous weather for the day too wasn't it Lisa? The 'cheats' chocolate eclairs look like a good idea. I wish I'd had some to eat! The celebration drink sounds lovely and refreshing too. x

  4. I echo your sentiments 'may they have a life full of happiness'
    It was such a wonderful day wasn't it.

    All the best Jan

  5. Awww, that sounds great fun! Your drink sounds really tasty. I could do with some of that now!

  6. Everyone looked so happy and beautiful, lovely day xx
