Jubilee Party Ideas How to Celebrate the Queens 60 Year Diamond Jubilee – Predicted Weather Forecast is Sunny!
It’s only 14 days until we will all be celebrating the Queens Diamond Jubilee with a 4 day holiday. Here our crumb’s top suggestions for how to do it in style. If you haven’t heard, here at crumb we are specialists in afternoon tea parties by post so if you think a tea party might be just the thing to celebrate the jubilee then you have definitely come to the right place!
After a miserably wet April and May not fairing much better, its hard to believe the summer will ever arrive. So is it wise to plan an outdoor event for the jubilee? Well, according to the met office, their long range weather forecast is predicting the rain will finally clear by the end of May, stating a “prolonged spell of relatively warm, dry weather, is more likely to occur during the early part of June. ” Winner! Finally the Summer is coming!!! The prospect of the first sunny bank holiday of the year should see us grabbing the BBQ and inviting friends round for a garden party.
Due to the high traffic to this blog post we are keeping a close eye on the weather forecast to make sure we remain accurate – well, as accurate as the weather forecast! As you can tell, the hot settled weather has come early and as of Monday 28th May the prediction for the jubilee weekend is now:
“Mainly dry, bright, and cooler than of late for the Jubilee weekend across many areas, especially southern and eastern parts of the UK, including London, where it will be a little cloudier with a chance of some light showers. Temperatures will be around or just below average for the time of year, and winds should be light away from northern and eastern coasts with a fresher northerly breeze here. Conditions should stay similar for Bank Holiday Monday and Tuesday, but perhaps more in the way of cloud and showery rain in the north and east, this spreading into the southwest at times, with temperatures staying around or just below the average. Staying generally unsettled thereafter with some rain or showers at times, and temperatures around or just below average.”
So perhaps a party at home with elements of garden based entertaining is the best bet.
Garden Party Ideas:
Why not host a garden party and enjoy the sunshine with friends – over on pinterest we have put together lots of ideas to help you decorate for the most elegant of garden parties.
If you want to get into the spirit of the jubilee weekend, why not host a jubilee tea party and leave the catering to us? If you are organising a bigger event and want to order more than 2 boxes, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and find out more about our special discounts for event organisers.
Back over on pinterest we’ve collected our favourite royal themed items and decorations and at the bottom of this post is a link to our free printable jubilee bunting…
If you’ve seen one too many union jack flag in the past couple of months but still fancy hosting an easy tea party why not order one of our regular afternoon tea party boxes, safe in the knowledge that delicious handmade cakes, fine teas and all the trimmings are only a click away from being delivered to your door?
Do you want to do something a bit British but not too Royal? Why not get a group together and head to the park. Dust off the picnic blankets and enjoy an afternoon with some good old fashioned British games. Croquet is quintessentially British, and if you’ve never tried it you are really missing out. Competitive and ridiculous in equal measure it is sure to have you in fits of laughter. Want something cool and refreshing to enjoy in the park while you take in the sunshine, why not make some ice tea mocktails? Here are some free mocktail recipes for you to try out, the 5oml syrups are included in our afternoon tea and cocktails box, the perfect accompaniment to a lazy picnic. (Or check out our cocktail recipes in earlier posts if you fancy something with more of a kick….)
Whatever you decided to do, if you need some extra decorations to make your jubilee tea party look the part, why not download our free printable union jack bunting? Just print off as many sheets as you need, cut out, fold over a piece of thread with a dab of glue. Much prettier than standard union jack bunting plus you can choose the length to perfectly fit your space.
Of course, don’t forget, simplest of all, order our jubilee tea party online and have a whole afternoon tea party delivered to your door, through your letterbox – no sorry we missed you cards, no waiting in for a parcel, no mad dash round the supermarket or cake shop, just order online and have delicious handmade cakes delivered to your door, through your letterbox, ready and waiting for you when you get home – what could be simpler? tea, cake, doilies, napkins, decorative union jack cake topper flags and stamps to embellish your crockery or invitations, perfect if you want an easy catering solution to help you host an elegant jubilee street party!
