The Queens Diamond Jubilee celebrations start next weekend and a great way to celebrate is to have a party.
Whether its a big street party, a family party or a small garden party we have put together a little guide to help the planning go smoothly.
You have two options, you can make your own food or buy it in.
If you are making your own here are some of our favourite Jubilee recipes:
Mary’s Cadogan’s Jubilee Chicken
Pork, Plum and Sage Pasties
Asparagus and Stilton Tart
Honey & Mustard Sausages
Jubilee Cakes from Butcher, Baker
For those of you that don’t fancy spending the day cooking then why not get it made for you. Many supermarkets make platters for special occasions and several are producing special Jubilee ones.
M&S Street Party
Sainsbury's Diamond Jubilee Party Food
Now the food is organised time to think about what you are going to serve it on and how to decorate the party space.
Napkins from Children's Party Shop
Tablecloth from Nellies
Bunting from Not on The Highstreet
Cups from TfL Shop
Depending on who is coming to your party you might want some entertainment especially if there is going to be children around.
Here are some ideas:
For the children you could
- Hire a bouncy castle
- Arts and Crafts corner
- Musical Statues
- Pass the Parcel
- Paddling Pool
If its an adult party then think about the music. Make a playlist that will keep you going through the whole party, that way you won’t have to worry about it as the party gets in to full swing.
If you prefer CD’s then Amazon have a huge selection of Jubilee inspired music with prices to suit every budget.
Lastly if you could hire some entertainment, Be On the Scene is an online community for those with talent to network and showcase their talents.
The food, decoration and entertainment is all sorted out now you need your party outfit.
We have already covered party outfits for Boys and Girls, now its time for the adults.
