Today in the UK there are street parties celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. They are doing that in the cold and rain of a British “summer”, but here in SL the sun shines and you can have your jubilee party in the woods. I’ll start with the food. The 3 tiered stands of chocolate goodies and the platter of chocolate dipped strawberries are what you get in the Roawenwood Sweet Tooth candies and confections pack. The pack is here on Marketplace (the RW have a sim of stuff, so you might take a while to find it inworld).
The mousse strawberry cake on a plate (which gives cake slices to eat) is from *NP* (Nukunuku). The bowls of strawberries and beer bottle from are copiable and from Funky Junk’s Pasadena Kitchen Food and Accessories pack. I’ve found this pack really useful – I’m always pulling bits and pieces from it to decorate different homes. Art Dummy gave out the Stacked teacups with strawberries as a gift (not sure you can still get it). Towards the back, the two thermos jugs are from LISP and the silver mulled wine bowl is from Vent du Sud. Under the table is What Next‘s End of Summer picnic basket and behind the table is their String of Jar Lights (flowery).
They are all resting on the wood shelf from ASO!, with b.v. (Bitter Vanilla) copiable check place mats.
Once you’ve collected your food, you can relax on La’Licious‘ new Olive’s Sweet Surprise Set, which consists of the fully decorated table and six cushioned seats. While you’r e there you can click to get a glass of sparkling champagne from *RnB*‘s Champagne Tray.
Alternatively, you can rest in the What Next English Seaside’ Beach Hut (perhaps to watch the Queen floating down the river as part of the flotilla this afternoon, on the LISP TV). The hut included the copiable deck chair with faded union jack cushion. I bought this a while ago, and I think that now they have the Brighton beach hut instead, which still has the patriotic bunting, but has a table and chairs set instead of the deck chair. I also bought What Next’s English Cottage Cat Basket which has a union jack cushion too.
If you are feeling more energetic you can dance using the poses built into the What Next Festival radio (VIP group gift). As it all looked a bit too tasteful, I added KUBRIC FLUX‘s Vertical UK Flag (free on Marketplace) and City‘s Union Jack Trunk with sit animation, together with some union jack bunting (using a texture from Limehouse). The pictures were made by me and are free here. The union jack hat on the trunk is a dollarbie on Marketplace.
Looking at the plants: Bluebells are by Frog’s Garden, Alder trees by Forest Floor, Hydrangea by iTuTu and Silver birch trees by Garden World.
