With the Olympics approaching fast and the Queen’s diamond jubilee just a few weeks away it’s time to get patriotic with your red, white and blue.
I’ve been collecting ideas on this theme for our jubilee party and my daughter’s Olympic birthday party.
First up is a gorgeous union jack dress from Next which you could team with these lovely sequined union jack pumps.
Also lovely is this Team GB sequin t-shirt, it’s a must on our shopping list.
My daughter is a big fan of the ribbon twirling gymnasts so we are going to be making some ribbon wands of our own, using red, white and blue ribbon of course.
Our medals are likely to be edible, I particularly like the idea of these biscuit medals, so easy to make to.
Such a simple idea is these gorgeous summery red white and blue strawberries. Dip the strawberries half way into melted white chocolate and then dip the ends into blue sugar. (you can buy this in most big supermarkets in the cake decorating isle.) A delicious way to celebrate both the Olympics and the Queens Diamond Jubilee

Me from the future: Who would have thought this blog would have been still going strong some 10 years later to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee!
