As befitting recognition of a lifetime dutifully spent serving
Here at CMB we are ready to throw our own Jubilee style street party with help from lots of Anglophiles!
It’s not too late to organize your own Jubilee celebration, too. CMB has all the décor and British imported foods you’ll need to be a proper host or hostess. Start by setting the tone with a festive garland of bunting (Talking Tables, $14), sponge cake toppers with corgis and Buckingham Palace (Talking Tables, $4.95), a cupcake kit with Union Jack pattern wraps and Royal Guard figures (Meri Meri, $12.95), and red striped paper straws (Kikkerland, $5.95).
Serve Shortbread House of Edinburgh’s world-renowned shortbread and Oaties biscuits, Prestat Chocolate’s Jewel Box chocolate truffles, and Island Bakery Organics Lemon Melts from the Isle of Mull off the coast of Scotland.
Uncle Joe’s Mint Balls and Summerdown Mint Crisps. Or for a non-edible gift that will last long after the Jubilee weekend, express your Anglophilia with a teapot vase (Talking Tables, $10.95) to be filled with the flowers of your choice-
You can also order a variety of English products and gifts online: many of our exlusive English gifts and imported foods can be found on our Queen’s Diamond Jubilee page.
CMB will be decked out for the Diamond Jubilee: as a store that began with importing British specialty foods, we’re always happy to recognize how great Great Britain truly is! We look forward to sharing this exciting time in UK history with you from our own corner of New York, and hope to see you soon at the store.
