5 Royally Good Ways to Celebrate the Platinum Jubilee with Flowers
The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations are nearly here. Whatever your party style why not try adding a floral twist to your Jubilee celebrations?
With events planned around the country to mark this historic milestone, plus the extra bank holiday for get-togethers and street parties, households across the UK are already busy stringing up bunting and warming the teapot.
If you’re looking for some flower inspiration for the Jubilee celebrations, then we’ve got some royally good ideas you’ll love. Whether it’s adding some floral flair to your street party or decorating a smaller garden gathering for friends and family, here are 5 blooming brilliant ways to celebrate with flowers.
- Decorate Your Front Door with a Stunning Summer Wreath
Decorating your front door with a wreath isn’t just for Christmas! Whatever the season there’s a door wreath to match and summer is no exception. Welcome in the start of those long sunny days with a vibrant pop of colour on your front door that is guaranteed put a smile on any visitor’s face! Not only is it bang on trend, but it’ll double up as a Platinum Jubilee Street party decoration too!
- Get Patriotic with British Coloured Blooms
Get trooping the colour with blooms in red, white and blue! Choose from hydrangea, antirrhinum or larkspur for white, delphinium, muscari or nigella for blue, with tulips, roses and astilbe adding the pop of red. Or order one of our Jubilation Posy Jars which are ready made and perfect for any royal occasion. (Also available as our Jubilee Selection with rather tempting chocolates in classically British flavours from Cocoa Cabana...)
- Try Unusual Floral Centrepieces with Quintessentially British Style
Call us biased but we think a cheery vase of blooms is perfect for any celebration. Bring that English country garden feel to your festivities by placing freshly cut flowers in recycled jam jars and arrange them stylishly on your garden tables for guests to admire. Mix it up by using glass milk bottles, mis-matched China teacups or even a tiered cake stand filled with flowers instead of cupcakes! These unusual centrepieces, with a gentle nod to a good old English tea party, will add an extra special touch to your celebrations.
- Include Edible Flowers to Cakes, Drinks and Dishes
Fanatical about florals? Why not try adding some edible ones to your celebrations? Edible flowers are naturally bright and beautiful and will add the finishing floral touches to any luxury picnic or garden gathering. Sprinkle on your trifle, cupcake or Victoria sponge. Add to a jug of Pimm’s or mix in with summer berries and gin for the most decadent of summer cocktails. It’s the perfect balmy summer night bliss!
- Floristry Fit for a Little (or Big) King or Queen - DIY Floral Crowns and Flower Fun
If you’re looking for some DIY floral fun that’s oh so stylish, then why not try and make your own flower crown. The perfect alternative to a diamond tiara (or paper hat) and totally rocks that English summer garden style!
If that’s not your cup of tea but you know a little king or queen that’d love a floral crown, get them involved in making these adorable daisy chain flower crowns. Easy to do and oh so cute. Or why not keep the kids busy with a flower press? Flower pressing is simple to do and oodles of fun. Get the kids designing beautiful, pressed flower party invites for your get-together or make delicate pressed flower decorations to hang beautifully from trees.
