Jubilee party supplies for diamond decorating

Monday, 28 May 2012 3:04 PM

The countdown to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee is on and it is time to get organised for the parties to be held across the UK.
The Jubilee decorations are loud, proud and absolutely a must-have for the weekend.
Many suppliers are offering a unique range of union jack covered party ware created especially for the June long weekend.
We have picked out our favourite collection from the home supplier Emma Bridgewater.

The Jubilee range, pictured, is made for outdoor use so fingers-crossed the lovely hot weather sticks around.
The collection includes plates, bowls and cups made from melamine, making them durable and easily washed and reused after the event.
There is a tablecloth bearing the phrase Truly Great with British flags and plenty of red stars.
For sweets there is a Jubilee-themed cake stand and union jack biscuit tin.
The theme continues with flag serviettes, coffee cups and even a tea pot.

Go overboard with themed party supplies to create a visual explosion of red, white and blue for what should be a royal weekend.
If you aren’t holding a party but are attending one there is also a very eye-catching union jack cooler bag in the collection.
