In just a couple of days Prince Harry will tie the knot with his gorgeous bride Meghan Markle – an event Brits have been waiting months for.
And if your neighbours are supporters of the royal family, chances are you will be enjoying a fun-filled street party on Saturday (May 19th) to celebrate the regal nuptials.
So, what should you bring to the neighbourhood event that will go down in history?
– Afternoon Tea
There’s nothing more British than a traditional afternoon tea, so why not serve fluffy scones with cream and jam, finger sandwiches and pretty puddings at your street party?
Make sure you have constant supply of tea and fill your cake stands with delicious miniatures such as Eton Mess – in honour of Prince Harry’s time at Eton – and Victoria Sponge, which is named after Queen Victoria who famously loved the simple pudding.
– Hot dogs and hog roasts
As Meghan Markle hails from the US, you could jazz up a traditional British menu with some American influences by adding some hotdogs, popcorn, smores, pecan pie, cornbread, New York cheesecake or gooey chocolate brownies.
A great addition to any big event in Lincolnshire is a hog roast, as these not only taste delicious but serve dozens of people, so you will be able to cater for many guests. Serve with a burger bun, lashings of BBQ sauce and chunky coleslaw for a truly American meal.
– English buffet
You could team your American dishes with some quintessentially British party foods. It is not a party without sausage rolls, scotch eggs and pork pies, and all the supermarkets serve these in abundance so you can quickly stock up if you have left it too late to cook.
Don’t forget your coronation chicken as well – a creamy curry-flavoured chicken dish that was invented for the celebration of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation in 1953.Tags: hog roast Lincolnshire
