This weekend the whole of the UK will be swathed in the red, white and blue of the Union Jack as we celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, and up and down the country there will be a whole host of street parties dedicated to toasting Her Royal Highness' lengthy reign.
If you are looking for ways to make sure your Royal celebration is the most stylish on the street, look no further than these beautiful visuals from The Contemporary Home, which are full of fabulous ideas to make sure your party is fit for a Queen!
These regal looking thrones are perfect for displaying the creme-de-la-creme of your Jubilee cucpakes. If you are feeling crafty, try making your own using lightweight cardboard and decorate with marker pens or wrapping paper, customising the design for each party guest.
Simple vanilla cupcakes can be topped with icing discs decorated with the red, white and blue of the Union Jack, and accesorised with mini paper patriotic flags. I love the addition of the quirky 'eat this,' 'fancy that,' and 'yummy' slogans!
These elaborate pop-out cake toppers featuring cut outs of the Queen, Prince Phillip, the Corgis and Buckingham Palace are available from The Contemporary Home and are perfect a-top a classic Victoria sponge.
Adorn champagne glasses with cut-out cardboard crowns, and decorate them with the Union Jack flag using red and blue marker pens. You could even add your guests' names to ensure glasses are never misplaced.
No party is complete without the classic British combo of vanilla ice cream topped with strawberries, especially in this heat! Serve yours in small paper bowls, decorated in the classic red, white and blue scheme.
Whatever you do, don't forget the bunting! You can easily make your own using coloured paper triangles stapled to a length of ribbon; it may not be waterproof but it never rains on a bank holiday... right?
