How to Style a Coronation Garden Party

Written by: Emily Rayner

This May we look to celebrate all things traditional, hosting street parties and dining alfresco to celebrate The Coronation of His Majesty The King. From a cup of tea with a neighbour to a whole host of street party celebrations, we embrace our British roots and come together this springtime, making memories that’ll be cherished for a lifetime. Below are our top decorating tips and a special cocktail recipe, to help you celebrate this historic day in style.

The Great British Garden Party

Create the ultimate coronation garden party and turn moments into memories as you welcome all your guests and loved ones by celebrating this momentous day in style. Our top styling tip for Coronation celebrations is to dress your home and garden at all levels, combining the classic glow of festoon lights and LED candles with festive decorations such as bunting and flags. Swag your lights between trees or along fences and walls around your garden and the warm glow will create an enchanting ambience to carry the party all the way into the evening.

Food Fit for a King

What better way to celebrate his majesty than by hosting an alfresco tea party with treats that will have you feeling like you’re at Buckingham Palace itself! Finger foods like mini sandwiches, scones and cupcakes are a timeless choice for your party guests to enjoy and can be elevated with patriotic cake toppers for the royal seal of approval. Arrange a cake stand full of sweet treats in the middle of the table for a traditional centrepiece that’ll tie your tablescape together. Dress your table with spring wreaths and garlands for a bright joyful feel to your dining display, and add a soft candlelit glow with the additional of TruGlow® LED candles to keep the party sparkling all day and night.

Coronation Coolers

The final part of hosting a memorable coronation garden party is providing cool and refreshing drinks throughout the day. Jazz up your water by infusing it with fresh summer fruits or create your very own cocktail corner and inspire your guests to get creative with their own recipes.
