Platinum Jubilee Celebrations

Platinum Jubilee Celebrations

This year Her Majesty the Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, after 70 years of service. To celebrate this reign, households across the country will be taking part in numerous activities and events in honour of Her Majesty. We wanted to share a few ideas as to how you can get involved in the run-up to the Jubilee and over Jubilee Weekend (2nd – 5th June).

Host a Street Party

Whilst many might see this as confusing and hard work, it’s quite simple with the help of your neighbours! Start by reaching out to the neighbours you know and find out if it is something they would be interested in, in many cases they will be. Once you’ve enlisted help, you can split tasks and jobs making it a smooth process. As the saying goes, many hands make light work! You can decorate your street with bunting and banners to get in the festive mood, consider a tea party theme with floral China and doyleys for an enhanced street party experience. Not only is this a great way to celebrate Her Majesty, but also a wonderful opportunity to come together as a community and get to know those you might not speak to often. Check out our latest Pinterest board for your street party inspiration!

Queens Green Canopy

The Queens Green Canopy  is a national initiative that encourages households, businesses and schools across the United kingdom to get involved and plant a tree to commemorate the Jubilee. A great way for everyone to get involved, no matter the scale. Whether you plan to plant a small tree in your garden or your local council is planting an avenue of trees in honour of the jubilee, not only is this great for the environment but something that will live on for years to come.

Attend Local Events

If you are looking for something with a little less planning to get involved, have a look at events taking place in your area. From local pubs to schools, to parks and even town events, there’s guaranteed to be an event near you that you can attend with your family. Minimal stress and maximum enjoyment. The perfect way to spend this extended bank holiday weekend.

Great British Bakes

Are you looking to celebrate the Jubilee at home? Try your hand at the official Jubilee Pudding, Lemon and Amaretti Trifle. Following the Queens competition, Jemma Melvin was in disbelief to have won the competition with her delicious trifle… we cant wait to try this for ourselves! If you’re looking to bake something slightly more traditional, have a go at making a batch of scones or even a Victoria sponge!
