The count down is officially on! With approximately 2 months until the crowning of King Charles III and the Queen Consort on the 6th May, how are you going to celebrate this milestone event?
First thing's first, every good British shindig needs bunting! There are 5 different designs to choose from in the Nessa Foye Designs shop, with everything from regal crowns, Union Jacks and even teapots on! These are perfect for if you're hosting a fancy Coronation tea party, a BBQ, a garden party or even a get together at the village hall.
Here's our set up from last year's Jubilee: bunting, streamers and red, white & blue balloons.
Next thing is drinks and cake. Pimms and lemonade is always a go to in the summer months, a glass of fizz or what about a Kir Royale?
* Pour 1 tbsp of creme de cassis into the bottom of a champagne flute.
* Top with chilled champagne.
* Garnish with a fresh or frozen blackberry.
When it comes to cake, a Victoria sponge is always a winner. However, a lemon drizzle cake or even a coffee and walnut cake can prove to be very popular at celebratory events.
Last year we made cupcakes for the Jubilee using Mary Berry's Simple Queen Cakes recipe. We then topped them with basic buttercream icing, a recipe we got from BBC Food website. They were quick, easy and absolutely delicious. We'll definitely be making them again for the Coronation!
Finally, if you're after a little momento to remember this milestone occasion, then why not get yourself a Union Jack ornament adorned with a regal gold crown? You can hang them from a nail on your wall, a door knob or even your Christmas tree.
Whatever you do, I hope you have a joyous occasion with loved ones!
