The UK is gearing up for one of the most anticipated events of the year – the King’s Coronation. Whether you’re a loyal royalist or just love a good celebration, there are plenty of ways to join in the festivities. Here are some ideas to help you get ready for the big day.
Indulge in an Afternoon Tea Fit for Royalty
What better way to honour this most British of events than with the most British of all meals – afternoon tea? Treat yourself to a spread of scones with clotted cream and jam, finger sandwiches, and cake. Set the table with your finest china, or take a picnic blanket outside and enjoy the great British outdoors (weather permitting, of course).
Bring on the Bunting
No British celebration is complete without bunting, and the coronation is no exception. Head down to your local party store or craft shop such as One Below, Card Factory or The Works to stock up or on or make flags, blue and red bunting, and other patriotic decorations. Hang them around your house or garden to create a festive atmosphere.
Find a Local Event
If you’re looking for a more community-oriented celebration, check out local Facebook groups or event listings to see what’s happening in your area. From street parties to parades, there are plenty of ways to join in the fun with your fellow citizens. Dress up in your best patriotic gear and enjoy the day with family and friends.
Whether you’re enjoying a quiet tea at home or joining in the festivities with your community, there are many ways to celebrate the upcoming king’s coronation. So get ready to wave your flags, eat some cake, and raise a toast to the new monarch – long live the king!
