VE Day Party Food

The 75th anniversary of VE Day is on 8th May, and under the current circumstances, all of the street parties and other planned festivities have had to be cancelled.

However, that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate at home – in our gardens with the members of our household, or out in our front gardens, porches, driveways or balconies with our neighbours! Just make sure you practice social distancing!

So hang out the bunting (grab my free printable VE Day decorations that you can print at home), make some sandwiches, cake and a pot of tea (or a cocktail!) and remember the momentous occasion of Victory in Europe, and the brave men and women who gave their all for our freedom. (And yes, I’m aware of the irony of that statement in the current climate).





When I think of similar events over the years that bring the nation together like the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Royal Weddings, I think of either afternoon tea or picnics, and that is the theme of food that I have gone for in this yummy round-up of recipes!

The dessert pictured above is for illustrative purposes and not included in this roundup of recipes. However, it is something you can easily make! Just use strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries to make the Union flag (it’s called the Union Jack only when at sea!) on top of a frosted sheetpan cake!

Sandwiches & Other Savoury Treats

You can't have a party without sandwiches, whether you decide to make dainty finger sandwiches, chunky doorstop butties or fill bread rolls with delicious fillings is up to you!

Here are some sandwich recipes and other savoury treats for your VE Day party.

Salads

I know May is still spring, but summer is also on its way and I love making salads in the summertime. Make one of these tasty salads for your garden party!

Cakes, Bakes & Other Sweet Treats

You can't have a table of party food without at least some cake and other desserts, so here are some yummy sweet treats for you to choose from.

Cocktails, Mocktails & Other Beverages

You need something to wash things down with, you could keep it simple and serve a bit pot of tea - so very British! Or just orange squash or cola. Or you could make a cocktail (or mocktail) or two to celebrate with. Many of my cocktail recipes include a mocktail variation!
