Editorial Feature

Whether you’re attending the street party of the year or hosting your own garden party, here is our list of 10 must-haves for celebrating the historic Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

1. Party Delights

Party Delights has a whole host of products for the platinum jubilee including party kits, bunting, personalised banners, flags, themed decorations, life-size cardboard cut outs, tableware, cake toppers, fancy dress novelties and balloons that are perfect for decorating a street party. 

It’s not a party without balloons and bunting, especially when it’s a good old knees-up for the Queen herself. Go traditional and adorn your doorway with a red, white and blue balloon garland or hang Union Jack bunting in a variety of flag and pennant shapes to let everyone know you’re celebrating.

Enjoy a royal luncheon with a Union Jack table cover, crown cups and plates, and Queen-themed cake toppers and glass decorations to bring your Platinum Jubilee party to life. Finish off your tableware with a splash of scattered confetti.

Finally, invite your favourite members of the royal family with masks of Queen Elizabeth, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. Or, why not include a life-size cardboard cut-out of Her Majesty to really get the royal celebrations in full swing.


2. Bubblegum Balloons

If you’re looking to really wow the neighbours with your street party celebrations, then head to Bubblegum Balloons who are delivering ready-made and inflated Jubilee balloons to your door.
