It's a time of celebration, and the perfect opportunity to throw a grand party. If you're planning a coronation party, here are some ideas to make it truly memorable.
What’s happening on the days of the Coronation weekend?
Saturday 6th May 2023 -The Coronation service at Westminster Abbey
Sunday 7th May 2023 - The Coronation Concert at Windsor Castle
Monday 8th May 2023- The Coronation Big Lunch, at which neighbours and communities are invited to share food and fun together, will take place across the country on the same date.
Decorating the venue in a regal style is one of the most important aspects of a coronation party. Think gold and silver, royal blue and purple, and plenty of velvet and satin fabrics. Hang banners, flags, and garlands to create a grand entrance. You could also add a red carpet leading to the throne for a more luxurious look!
Food is an essential part of any party, and a coronation party is no exception. Consider serving foods that are fit for a king or queen, like roast beef, game meats, and poultry. Serve desserts that are rich in flavour and presentation, like chocolate cakes, macarons, or a cake fit for a king or queen.
A coronation party isn't complete without a selection of royal drinks. Offer your guests a variety of beverages, including champagne, wine, and cocktails. Be sure to have a signature drink for the occasion, perhaps something like a sparkling punch with fresh fruit. For non-alcoholic options, consider serving sparkling water or fruit juice.
Entertainment Fit for Royalty
Entertainment is a crucial part of a coronation party, and there are plenty of ways to make your guests feel like royalty. Consider hiring a string quartet or a live band to provide elegant music throughout the evening. You could also hire a magician, juggler, or a comedian to entertain your guests. Additionally, it's always fun to set up a photo booth with crowns, sashes, and other regal props.
Encourage your guests to dress in their finest attire, including formal gowns, suits, and tuxedos. You could even set up a costume contest with a prize for the guest with the most regal outfit. Make sure to include a note in the invitation about the dress code to ensure everyone is on the same page.
