(Dress: C/O George at ASDA, Shoes: Topshop, Necklace: Jewellery by Jaymie)

When the lovely folk at ASDA got in touch a month or so ago, asking whether I'd like to be sent a few Diamond Jubilee tea party supplies, along with a retro inspired dress to wear for the occasion, I leapt at the chance! Being a girl who loves a pretty dress almost as much as I love pigging out with some tea and scones, I could think of nothing more perfect. What's more, is my birthday was the weekend following the official Jubilee weekend, so after enjoying the Queen's celebrations and concert at my nan's house, I stretched the celebrations onto my own birthday (and the Queen's official birthday) with a patriotic British themed tea party, laden with tea cakes, marshmallows and pink lemonade!

Additionally, this dress was perfect for the occasion (check my regal bench posing!) Oozing something of a fifties nostalgia, it reminded me of a more colourful version of something that may once have been found in the beautiful Audrey Hepburn's wardrobe. With this, it would have almost been rude not to wear my awesome Jewellery by Jaymie necklace featuring the lady herself- perfect!

  1. Oh my gosh. How pretty, when you guys do dessert over there you go ALL out. For sure. I don't know if I can say the same about Americans. Maybe just those who do baking for a living, I suppose. Anywho, your dress is absolutely fabulous. I love the bold color but it still looks so lovely and demure.

  6. This is incredible, you look absolutely gorgeous and I adore the necklace. I'm checking out the jewellery by jaymie site now... so much bookmarked for payday! (yes already planning next months wages... 4 days after being paid!!)

    The victoria sponge decorations are the cutest things, and the cake looks pretty damn good too- Infact the whole table looks like something out of a dream. Too good to be true!

    Hope it was as much fun as it looks :)
