Jubilee 1

How To Party This Queen's Diamond Jubilee

No matter where you’re celebrating, there are some quintessential British must haves you just can’t party without.

To help you on your way to celebrating the Queen's 60 years of service, we’ve put together a list of vital ingredients you’ll need for the big day.

Pimm's




For most Brits, a glass of Pimm’s is the taste of summer; a jug of this fruity nectar can be seen on every picnic blanket and pub bench as soon as the sun begins to shine. For the perfect pitcher, the Pimm’s website recommends mixing one part Pimm’s to three parts lemonade and then adding orange, mint, cucumber and strawberries.

Bunting




Hang it in the garden or drape it over your door, bunting is a British staple and should not be missing at your jubilee party. Why not have a go at making it yourself, or pop in to any souvenir shop or supermarket where you’ll be sure to find festive bunting for your royal knees up.

Scones




Whether you pronouce it con or cone, scones should most definitely be present at your jubilee get-together. Served with clotted cream and a range of jams, this sweet treat is sure to be a hit with your guests.

Tea




Tea is a refreshing beverage that can be sipped any time of the day. Brew a classic English breakfast tea or even a bag of earl grey, whichever you choose make sure you have enough milk and sugar to keep all of your guests happy!

Cucumber sandwiches




Get rid of those crusts and cut into rectangles or triangles to create the classic cucumber sandwich. Spread a little bit of cream cheese on these finger food favourites and they’re sure to be a hit.

The Union Jack




Britons love a reason to be patriotic, and what better way to show it than to paint the Union Jack on your face! If you would rather not stain your face for the day, why not opt for a hat with the jack on it or you could even wear the flag as a cape.

Croquet




The ultimate lawn game; croquet will provide great entertainment for all ages. Get out the hoops and mallet for a perfect reason to take a break from all those cakes and sandwiches everybody will have been eating.

Umbrellas




You’re never fully dressed without one. A truly British party would not be complete without the famous unpredictable weather, so be prepared and don’t leave the house without your trusted brolly.

Morris Dancing




If you’re going to have a go at the old English folk dance, a few glasses of Pimm’s beforehand might make the whole ordeal a little less embarrassing. Stock up on bells and handkerchiefs and try out a tradition that goes back to the 15th century.

Full English Breakfast




The perfect cure for the morning after the night before, you can’t get more British than this. Nurse yourself to full health with this superb combination of, bacon, eggs, beans, sausage, mushroom, tomato, hash browns and not to be forgotten, black pudding.
