Party Ideas for the King's Coronation - Smart Party Shop

Party Ideas for the King's Coronation

In May, King Charles III will be crowned at his Coronation, and celebrations will take place across the nation just like during the Jubilee.

The emblem for King Charles's coronation, which has been created by iPhone designer Sir Jony Ive, has been unveiled.

To help organise the best street or garden party ever, Smart Party Shop has created a Coronation Party guide filled with fabulous ideas.

We also offer a wide range of stylish and modern party signs and selfie frames, but you should act fast as demand is high.

The Coronation will occur on Saturday 6 May, and most street parties will be held on this date. However, some individuals may choose to have their parties on Sunday 7 May or the Bank Holiday Monday 8 May.

If you are planning a street party, make sure to comply with any council regulations and get public liability insurance to cover any accidents. To make things easier, create an organizing committee and decide how to raise the necessary funds.

Encourage attendees to bring their own outdoor tables and chairs for seating. Entertainment doesn't have to be expensive and can be a great way to get everyone involved. Think about street performers or traditional games like apple bobbing, limbo, and three-legged races.

Dress up in fancy costumes or at the very least provide party crowns for everyone. Have fun items available to encourage interaction between neighbours such as skipping ropes, hula hoops, bubble machines, or giant bubble makers. You can also set up a treasure hunt or provide chalk for children to draw pictures with chalk on the pavement.

Consider music for your party by hiring a DJ, creating a Spotify playlist, or finding a local band. Ensure everyone can hear the music by using speakers and check if you need a license.

For your party food, provide a combination of posh and traditional fare to cater to all age groups. Afternoon tea-style finger sandwiches and savoury treats like quiches and sausage rolls work well, as do grazing boards with crudites, cheeses, crisps and dips. Dessert options can include jelly and ice cream, bread and butter pudding, scones and cream and cupcakes.

Jugs of Pimms make a great drink option but don't forget to have plenty of non-alcoholic punch available. Dress up your tables with a combination of red, white, and blue table covers, union jack themed table covers and party bags for children. 

Why not add a Coronation party sign to welcome your guests to a once-in-a-lifetime Royal Coronation Party?
