Jubilee Vintage Tea Party,

Ok, ok, this is the last Jubilee post, I promise!
Oystermouth Primary school recently had a Jubilee party for all it's former students, parents and supporters.
It was a fantastic turnout with so many people attending the event. Even former head-masters came too. Everyone really enjoyed drinking cups of tea and eating the most awesome cakes that all the parents had made. I may have got carried away with too many photographs of vintage china but if you know me and my blog posts over the last few years you would have already expect that!

Cool Jubilee poster by Rasa.

The collection of teapots is growing, the question is can you ever have enough?

So many cakes.


Lovely Meagan's flowers from Made in Mumbles.

A tad bit of tablecloth action.

My favourite vintage cake-stand.

A spot of Royal Albert.

Cheeky yellow bird.

Amazing looking cake - don't worry I didn't make it!

May pole dancing ladies on vintage linen.
Think we all should have tried a bit of that!

Ahhh that china cup doesn't go with that saucer!

Fab photo of glass cake stands.

All the little ones got a goodie bag full of lovely picnic food and treats donated by a certain lovely Rebecca T.
Just wow to your  brilliant and generous idea Rebecca :-)
They will certainly remember this day for a very long time.
Does anyone remember the last Jubilee?
Yikes am I showing my age!!
The whole school then had a fashion parade and fancy dress competition which was really good fun from the 3 year olds to the 11 year olds.

Looking at all the old photos. 
It was amazing to see how many generations and relatives had attended the school! It must have taken ages to gather all these photos from the archives.
My 93 year old grandmother-in-law was really hoping to attend the reunion and vintage tea party but was unfortunately unwell on the day. That would have made such a lovely photo of 4 generations who had attended the school!

Hello cheeky harlie.

As you can see it was such a fun afternoon.
It went by way too quickly, which is defiantly a good sign.
Well done to all the wonderful PTA team and parents at Oystermouth School.
You have raised an awful lot of money in a short time for a very worthy cause - (the playground.)

In awe.

Well done to amazing Meagan again too for just everything!!

Such a star.

Take care for now.

Oystermouth School Jubilee

Ok, ok, ok this is the third Jubilee blog in a row, but this one was so much fun too! This Jubilee celebration was at Oystermouth School in Mumbles, Swansea. As well as having good fun they were also raising money for their Infant's playground.
It was an awesome sunny day with Union Jack bunting and flags everywhere. I'm particularly loving Meagan's outfit and cake above. I'm wondering now, how much cake have you all eaten in the last few weeks! 

Hey wait, who is that! A big thanks for making a special appearance Elizabeth!
She did so well getting around the country!

Red. white and blue balloons.

Loved the red deck-chairs!

OOOh look who bought all their cake stands with them for the cake stall!
This time we went pretty melamine!
These cakes were such tasty cakes!

Red, white and blue fancy dress costumes for sale.

Nurse costume and blue sky.

Oh my word, the most awesome Pimms ever!

The lovely coconut shy.

Ooooh pick your own moustache stall! I'm sure this was the most popular event of the day!

You had to walk through this old wardrobe to experience all the games in this designated area! It was brilliant fun.

OOOh look how many ducks I've caught!

Doesn't this look a little like the Olympic rings?

Someone winning a coconut.

Oystermouth School with the castle behind.

It was a really lovely and successful Jubilee school fete.

There were many more photos but I'm sure you have all had enough by now!

Take care for now, 

Until the next Royal Wedding!

Jubilee Street Party

We went to a fab Jubilee Street Party in Mumbles this week. The weather has been a bit wet recently but that cheeky rain didn't dampen our spirits! It was great that the rain held off until the eating and the games had finished. It was a busy and fun event with an awesome atmosphere. The Union Jack bunting came out once again as well as  all those colourful flags.

There was a sea of red, white and blue attire for the afternoon!
This outfit worn by Bertie was so my favourite!

A few Royal visitors managed to make it.

Hello there Phil!

And Charlie.

 Wet road.


Ahhh this lovely lady was giving out these.

Bunting in the wind.

Jumping puddles.

Everyone bought so much food, it was amazing. It had such a lovely family like feeling all afternoon. No one wanted to leave.

This little one is keen to eat some food.


Still waiting.


How much food?

Union Jack cake and napkins.


 Love these red, white and blue cupcakes.

Victoria Avenue party sign.

Paper chains and kids racing.

Officially closed road.

Colourful umbrella on the table.

Cleaning up time.

3 cakes!

Someone got in the mood.

Awesome Union Jack cake made by Bertie.

A clown surprised the kids.

Tasty red, white and blue Jelly.

So it's good bye from these guys and from me too. :-)

Hope you are all well.

I think I may have a few hundred more photos of more Jubilee events, bet you can't wait!

Take care for now.
