AD| In June, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service. The event will take place across a 4-day weekend from Thursday 2nd June – to Sunday 5th June.
The Queen is an iconic figure and to celebrate 70 years of service is amazing! It’s certainly something we will never see again in our lifetime. I’m not sure what we will be doing during the Jubilee, we have no plans as of yet but I’ve been looking into some ways to celebrate.
Here are some things you can do to celebrate the Queens Platinum Jubilee.
Host a party
Check out The Ultimate Jubilee Party Checklist from Chums if you want to host your own Jubilee. Hosting a party can be stressful but it’s so rewarding! If we had a bigger garden I’d love to host a garden party! Although the weather always makes it a bit of a gamble, doesn’t it?
Plan your outfit
The colours of the Union Jack – red, white and blue are the colours you need to focus your outfit around. You can go subtle by just wearing red and blue socks, or you can get bold by wearing clothes that actually have the Union Jack on them!
Have fun with accessories
You can get lots of accessories to go with your outfit to celebrate the Jubilee. You can get fake crowns, masks of the Queen, headbands with Union Jack crowns, hats and more!
If you’re planning on having a garden party, bunting is a must. Whether you go for Union Jack, red white and blue or something else, it’s a cute way to decorate your garden for a Jubilee party.
Craft with your kids
If you have little ones, get crafting with them! Here are a few ideas:
- Make your own crown
- Paint a Union Jack
- DIY bunting
- Make a castle out of toilet roll tubes and cardboard
- Bake red, white and blue cakes
- Have a tea party
Watch The Crown
The Crown is such a good TV show. Although its dramatised it is based on historical events that portray the Queen’s reign. It’s so interesting to see what duties the royals get up to and learn more about them, as well as learn about some history on the way. Though it can be hard to remember that it’s not all of it actually happened!
Check out local events
We have a few events going on in our village to celebrate the Jubilee as a community, as well as special offers on meals at local pubs. It’s worth checking out Facebook Comunity Pages.
Teach your children
If you have children, this is a great opportunity to teach them about the Royal family and the role they play in our country.
Have an afternoon tea
There’s nothing more British than afternoon tea, is there? So book yourself in for one and enjoy those cream and jam scones!
How will you celebrate?
