Easy Jubilee Party Ideas!
It’s not long to go before the long-awaited Platinum Jubilee celebrations! Queen and country will be coming together to enjoy all the festivities, with many communities throughout the country putting on events for everyone to enjoy. It’s the perfect time to have a get together with all your friends and family. Here are 5 easy Jubilee party ideas to get the festivities started!
Decorate for a Jubilee party
Nothing sets the atmosphere for a party like the decorations you put up. Find ways to embrace the red, white and blue theme with simple things like bunting and tableware. Why not pair red placemats or napkins with a blue and white gingham tablecloth?
For a classy garden party, use the three colours sparingly, perhaps using them for napkins and placemats among a neutral set up. For something fun and vibrant, use those colours more frequently – on your table, in your house and around your garden. Your guests will love it!
Jubilee Party Food Ideas
Depending on how many guests you plan to have, sorting food can be a daunting task. Forget 3 course meals and keep to the simple party foods. Whether you’re hosting in your dining room, kitchen or garden – stick to the classic finger foods and leave the stress behind.
Why not theme your Jubilee Party Food around the classic British delight of afternoon tea? Sandwiches, cakes, scones, tea and fizz. What’s not to love? Choose four varieties of sandwiches, perhaps ham and mustard, tuna and cucumber, cheese and pickle or the iconic coronation chicken.
For cakes, you can support your local community and visit a bakery for some delicious baked goods. The hardest part will be choosing what you want! Lemon drizzle or Victoria sponge? Chocolate eclairs and a gateaux? For the scones, of course you can’t go without jam and clotted cream!
Jubilee Party Games
Whether you’re hosting or attending a Platinum Jubilee Party, entertainment is essential! While you’re chatting the day away, throw in some party games to keep everyone’s spirits lifted.
If you have children present, why not play a game of royally themed Pictionary? The day before the party, write some regal words onto slips of paper so your guests can draw them from a hat and get creative! After that, why not have a Craft a Crown competition? All you need is some gold or silver paper, scissors, glue and items for colouring like pens and glitter.
Join Your Community
If the thought of hosting a party all day feels like it will be too much, why not take your guests out to your closest village, town or city? There are dozens of communities throughout the country that are throwing huge events to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee. Why not share the events with your guests! It’s the perfect time to feel a sense of togetherness that can be difficult to find. Find a local event by visiting the official platinumjubilee.gov.uk website!
