A Great British Bonanza

A Great British Bonanza!

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is finally almost here and spirits are running high as we look forward to a Bank Holiday weekend full of celebrations.

Whether you’re throwing a garden party with friends, you’re having a family feast at home or you’re attending a street party with your neighbours, get ready to celebrate like Royalty!

Opt for a patriotic theme with a red, white and blue colour palette for your party décor and outfit. Lay the table with traditional British favourites such as cream tea and Pimm’s. And to really get the party started, don’t forget to add a few party games for a good old-fashioned knees-up!

Check out our top Platinum Jubilee picks from the stores here at Eden to help you make it a Royal affair.
