How to Host a Royal Worthy Platinum Jubilee Party

No one throws a party quite like the Queen, but we can certainly do our best! Perhaps you’re throwing a street party to remember or maybe you’re opting for a more regal patio picnic. The Store at Restoration Yard is a treasure trove for all things tableware, foodie fayre and party wear! Let us help you find the cherry on top to make your Platinum Jubilee gathering one to remember.

Tableware fit for a queen

It wouldn't be a royal occasion without the perfect tea set to accompany. Our top pick would be the beautifully blue London Pottery tea set exclusively in-store. We recommended mixing and matching your tea set patterns for a wow-worthy cuppa. Give your baking a pretty pedestal on the Costa Nova Portugal Cake Stand. A real centre piece that will add the finishing touch to any tablescape. To add a unique touch pick up a set of Gisela Graham Assorted Coasters, £3.25. They are a Restoration Yard favourite that we're sure Her Majesty would approve of.

Delicious foodie fayre

The key ingredient to your Platinum Jubilee party success is obviously FOOD! A perennial favourite, authentic Italian Aragostine  Pistachio Pastry by Diforti are devilishly good. Delicious pistachio cream with crunchy pastry for a rich and satisfying taste - a true crowd pleaser. If you're opting for a tear and share style you can't go wrong with a bit of Restoration Yard Chilli Jam as an accompaniment. Come and choose some Mellis Cheese in-store to complete your board of choice. Add a drizzle of sweetness with Edinburgh Honey. The unique Scottish flavours will create a wow-factor whether your combining it within another dish or simply want to appreciate it in its simplest form.

Add a little fun

With a range of ages attending your party, you may want to make sure everyone can get in on the fun. For the laidback party we recommend the Pick a Flower A Memory Game - a delightful game for budding little ones and nature lovers alike. Bring friends and family together with the ultimate ten-in-one Games Compendium by Ridley’s. It's guaranteed to bring even the quietest of people out of their shell. Opt for the Wild & Wolf Sing it Back Music Quiz to get the party started - we just hope your guests can hold a tune!

Take the perfect gift

If you got off the hosting duties then you better be ready with a royally approved gift. Choose something unique from the Nkuku range in-store. To go with their new Nkuku vase opt for the gift that keeps on giving - Restoration Yard faux flowers. Come and pick up the perfect ready made bunch in-store or create your own online. Or why not give them a scent that they will forever associate with the royal celebrations. Choose from the curated range of Restoration Yard candles, soaps, diffusers and body products.
