May Blog: Prepare for the Platinum Jubilee!

It’s time to bring out the flags, sing the national anthem proudly, and arrange to see your nearest and dearest, as the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations are just around the corner. Whether you’re organising a street party, a picnic in the park, or you’re dusting off your BBQ, we’ve got you covered for everything you need to enjoy the June bank holiday weekend. After all, it is the event of the year!

You can always count on Marks and Spencer to create a spectacular range to celebrate every UK holiday, and they’ve truly outdone themselves for the Jubilee. If you’re hosting a garden party, then decorate with Union Jack bunting, the Queen’s Guards napkins and cushions covered in crowns. Feast on chocolate corgi’s, party sandwich platters, and all-butter shortbread served in stunning Jubilee tins. And pop open a bottle or two of their Summer limited edition Prosecco to sip in the sunshine. The crowning glory of their range has to be their Jubilee Corgi and Connie the Caterpillar cakes. Delicious!

Next are helping you throw a tea party fit for Royals with their Jubilee kits. Packed with tiered cake stands, ‘party like royals’ napkins, mini flag cocktail sticks, confetti balloons and Corgi bunting, they’re helping you make your party one to remember. But don’t forget your outfit for the celebrations! Their Jubilee edit features a sea of blue (and red and white) floral dresses, printed boxy T-shirts, sparkly hair clips and glitter slip on pumps. There’s even a few themed aprons, so head chefs can still dress for the occasion!

Halfords is the perfect stop to find all essential Jubilee party prep! If you’re throwing a grand garden party, they have a great selection of outdoor dining sets and gazebos. If you’re heading to the local park with your little princes and princesses, then explore their range of picnic sets and coolers. Or if you’re off to the great outdoors in search for a little peace and quiet during the 4-day weekend, then take a peek at their camping tables and chairs.
