What a week of birthdays! Today in New Zealand we are celebrating our Queen's birthday, and what better way to celebrate that than to have a posh picnic tea party for lunch (big thanks to Simone for the inspiration!!).
The girls got their beads and crowns on. Cupcakes, club sandwiches and coconut ice were made. The tea pot was filled with juice and the red posh tablecloth was spread out on the deck.
You may be wondering where the photo's of the boys are... they were invited along too, but alas they didn't quite turn up in their "posh Queen's party gears". Dad was wearing his old slippers and some garish Hawaiian shorts and all of the boys were sporting their "bed hair" look. I think for some people the Queen's birthday is basically an excuse to sleep in and then wander around the house all day in their pajamas!
Let's just pretend the boys were our servants.
Anyway, we had a lovely time nibbling on our posh lunch and discussing our Queen Elizabeth and who would be next to take the throne one day. A very interesting subject.
Happy Birthday Queen Elizabeth, and happy day off everyone else!!
