The best decorations for your Jubilee party, from garlands to balloons and more

It’s not every day you see a platinum jubilee.

In fact, here in the UK we’ve never had one, and the history books only record three others before Queen Elizabeth II (CC: pub quizers i.e. Louis XIV of France; Johann II, Prince of Liechtenstein; and King Bhumibol of Thailand).

Her Maj is our longest reigning monarch, totaling an impressive 70 years wearing the crown. It’s a milestone worth celebrating in our book.

As we head into the much-anticipated four-day weekend (June 2-5 if it’s not already circled in red on your calendar), we’re seeing more and more limited-edition Jubilee merchandise invading shelves, both physical and digital. We’ve rounded up the best of the bunch here.

The platinum jubilee will see many official red, white and blue events, a special parade of color and high profile performances across the country.

With such a huge national event (not to mention two extra days off – well done Liz) there will of course be street parties, with roads in every London borough and beyond cordoned off to make way for majestic feasts of British food: think Coronation chicken, pork pies, trifles, sandwiches with every topping under the sun and mountains of scones for cream teas. Less state, more street banquet.

Decorations will play a central role – and we’re not just talking about streamers. You will also need assorted dishes, napkins and balloons. If you’re thinking of raising your own royal knees, we’ve rounded up the pieces that HRH herself would give her thumbs up.

keep calm and party
