Royal Themed Party Craft Ideas – Things To Make For A British Royal Wedding, Jubilee or Party
With just over a month to go to her majesty Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee, it is the perfect time to discuss things that you can be making to celebrate the occasion. And so here are some DIY party decor, craft and sewing ideas that are perfect for a Great British royal theme party!
It may be that you have a little prince or princess who wants to wear a gold crown and be the king or queen of the realm for the day, so you are looking for birthday party ideas to fit. Or you may wish to celebrate an event such as VE day or the armistice, and so need ideas for ideal decor to match the occasion. Well, read on, as this post is going to share a wealth of suitable craft and decor ideas with royal themes.
Of course the first thing that should be on your party supplies list is bunting. These pennant flags are a really pretty way of decorating for any party, be it a baby shower, wedding or street event. Union jack fabric really does give the bunting that royalty themed edge. See my tutorial here on how you can create your own.
P.S. I also have a really easy bunting tutorial for if you are in a rush!
Scrap Fabric Garlands
Fabric scrap garlands are incredibly easy to make. They quickly can be crafted to make large swathes of festive bunting that looks really effective. Furthermore the whole family (and community) can get involved in making them from old clothes, making them inexpensive and a truly budget friendly decor idea. Find the tutorial here.
Fabric Flower Brooches or Hairbands
I love using up all my fabric scraps. And these fabric flowers are a brilliant way of using up even the smallest of scrap fabric to create something useful or beautiful. Add a pin to the reverse to make them into a brooch. Or sew these to a hair elastic to create a cute decorative hair bobble that any little princess would love to wear. See my video here.
Placemats and Coasters
Are you having a sit down tea party or meal to celebrate the royal event? Then why not make custom placemats or coasters to decorate your party table? These are really easy to whip up from fabric, batting and interfacing. Find a great tutorial for placemats here. And my tutorial for easy fabric coasters is here.
Thinking of eating and drinking alfresco? Then these bowl covers will protect your food from flies whilst you are outside? Here is the easy sewing tutorial. Why not make them in a tiny size with a straw hole for your drinks too?
Cushions are a wonderful; way to brighten up your home and garden. And what can be brighter than making a Union Jack cushion? You could use your scrap strips of red, white and royal blue fabric to create this look. Or appliqué cut out flags from a themed cloth to make a pattern. Here is a great tutorial on how to make one.
This idea for a Jubilee craft from Chantelle at TwoHeartsOneRoof is a brilliant way of getting smaller children involved in the jubilee spirit. Find how to make it here.
Whether you are having cocktails or a little party spread to celebrate, these little Cocktail picks are the perfect way of decorating your Royal party food. And you can make them out of fabric scraps so easily! Find out how to make them here.
Any party would not be complete without some royalty themed props. Why not make some gold crowns for guests to wear? If you do have a child that wants a royal prince theme party then they should wear a bigger crown than all their ‘subjects’, and one chair could be decorated to recreate a ‘throne’ for the birthday child.
There are also several great tutorials on how to make fabric reusable crowns, which are obviously better for the planet too as they can be reused time after time. See a tutorial here.
What says royal occasion more than a garden party?
Hopefully the weather will be good when we are celebrating our royal event. And so it makes sense to decorate the garden with royalty party themes too. And so why not consider painting some of your plant pots to commemorate the occasion? Acrylic paint with a varnish over the top works best for this craft. Acrylic will be quite durable under the unpredictable British weather.
And if you do have a patio or decking area, why not decorate this space with bunting and rag garlands too?
What To Eat And Drink At A British Royal Themed Party
Royalty parties would not be complete without some royal themed food to match. So here are some typically British foods to serve at your royal themed event. Whether you are having a
- Coronation Chicken sandwiches – a recipe that was created specifically for the Queen’s coronation in 1953
- Cucumber sandwiches – a staple of a British summer garden party
- Fish and Chips – there is nothing more British
- Jam and cream scones
- Strawberries and Cream – which is such a classically British dessert
- Eton mess – a light traditional dessert
- Victoria sponge – named after Queen Victoria – decorated with blueberries cream and strawberries to look like a Union Jack!
And some classic drinks
- Gin and tonic
- Gin and Dubonnet – which was said to be one of the Queen Mother’s favourite tipples!
- Pink fizz – because wine and bubbles are the perfect summer combination
- Pimms and lemonade
- Orange barley water squash for the kids
Obviously, though you want to have fun, I do advise that you drink responsibly and keep your disruption to a minimum. But I do really hope that you enjoy your royal theme party!
