Blue Skies... smiling at me...

After all the excitement of the Royal Wedding, it seemed the perfect thing to do to carry on eating cake and hanging up bunting. Which is exactly what we did yesterday at the glorious "Ye Olde May Day" festival at the First Garden City Museum in Letchworth Garden City. Under the sparkling blue sky, the museum garden was again transformed, and together with May Queens, Jack of the Greens and some Morris Dancers (who certainly earned their cake!) people came and went amongst the bluebells and lilacs to to enjoy a cup of tea from vintage cups and eat ravishing home-made cakes from bone china plates. The tables were decorated with wildflowers in jam jars on chinzy vintage table-cloths and the trees were strewn with our trademark bunting...

We are immensly grateful to the museum for hosting the event and supporting us and toeveryone who came. It was lovely to see so many people - over a hundred - enjoying the little known, almost Secret Garden of the museum on such an incredible day. Spirits were high, and the Buns and Bunting girls were run off their feet delivering trays laded with retro delights to the happy customers. It really feels as though the summer has begun!
