BEST OF BRITISH PARTY
I thoroughly enjoyed putting every element of this party together. The guest of honour was a lovely British lady, the party was hosted by her granddaughter for her 80th birthday, what a lovely milestone!
The food was inspired by Great Brittian but with a South African flavour.
We set up a long table which we decorated with white tablecloths, a red & white striped paper table runner, Union Jack placemats, red roses in teacups & teapots, a red box, Paddington Bear (my favourite element!), Union Jack triangle flags, "Keep Calm & Carry On" in a red frame, black & white London icon posters and a red Royal Post postbox as well as side plates and Union Jack serviettes.
The guests were welcomed with Pimm's Cups cocktails with English cucumber sticks and red & white striped paper straws.
On the menu was delicious individual prawn & avocado cocktails with Marie Rose sauce, beer battered fish bites & crisps in London Times newspaper cones in wooden crates, mini Banoffee pies, London icon cupcakes in Union Jack cupcake wrappers, pickled brown onions, mini Cornish pasties, delicious cucumber, carrot, herb & cream cheese sandwiches, roast beef, hot English mustard & rocket seed loaf sandwiches with gherkin, the most delicious mini beef & Guinnes pies (thank you to my husband Ian!), a cheese platter with a selection of English cheese including Stilton, Cheshire Blue, Cheddar & Five Layered Cheese with biscuits, cheese straws and of course fresh strawberries & cream, Wimbledon style!
