With two days to go,a look back at previous years at our nationwide party.Mindboggling to foreign visitors but all are enthousiastic on the nationwide fun and relaxed party day,no Monarchy,let alone any country where you will find such an atmosphere celebrating the birthday of
the Head of State,nowhere,just nowhere:

ANP Beeldbank

courtesy royalimages.

And be sure you have these in your home:

ANP Beeldbank

Decoreren en spuiten van tompoezen

De Ooievaar - Genevers en Likeuren - A. van Wees Amsterdam

A traditional nip of this liquor is obligatory while celebrating anything related to The House of Orange Nassau.Just a nip..

In case you´re in Amsterdam this Queensday..:

Meanwhile at Het Loo Palace,preparing the exhibition " 100 Year Juliana ",to be opened by HM The Queen on Queensday:

ANP Beeldbank

The Royal cradle,given by the ladies of Amsterdam on occasion of the birth of Princess Juliana,it is only to be used by
Heirs to the Throne,so it had Juliana,Beatrix,Alexander and Amalia crying for a diper.

And on occasion of Queensday Kinki Hairdressers designed a whole new hairdo for our dear Trix,they had thousands of coins
made with different designs:

The pastries look delicious! I am so sad that I won't be in the Netherlands during this time. It looks like a blast! Maybe someday...

Yes she will.

The florist who makes the bouquets for HM and the Princesses was a bit of a blabbermouth and named the amount of bouquets.
