  • Thank you for including my Union flag gift box on your beautiful blog.

      Thank YOU for your brilliant idea and free printable Judith! 😀

  • I love this post celebrating the new little Prince! I spent a summer studying in England and often have my classmates over for tea parties. I will be using those darling Union Jack pinwheels as decorations for our next get together. Thanks!

      That sounds fun Kristen 😀 I’m not a royalist, but the crazy excitement over baby Prince George has been very infectious (and any excuse to craft, eat cake and quaff fizz is good in my book)!

      Enjoy your next tea party (why not make some of the lace crowns too in adult sizes for your VIP guests)..? 😉

      • America has caught the Royal baby bug, too! It’s all good fun, and like you said, any excuse for fizz!

        I will take your advice, grown ups can wear crowns too!

        • Hodge Podge

          Absolutely – it’s good to have something positive on the news for a change, isn’t it?
          And yes, grown ups can and SHOULD wear crowns! 😉

          Have a fabulous weekend!
