Jubilee Party Food Ideas

Wowzers! What a day, it’s been like an episode of Challenge Anneka in my house today as I hit the shops in a last ditch rush for Jubilee party food ideas.  It seems the rest of the world also had the same idea and Sainsburys was like something out of a pre-apocalyptic announcement with mums grabbing bags of things left right and centre and heels taking a serious battering with trolleys!

Thankfully though I managed to get all the goodies I needed to create a bit of fun this weekend with some party food themed around the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. So on my table this weekend will be some of favourites as well as a few naught treats to celebrate this special occasion.

Diamond Jubilee Big Lunch Ideas Sponsored Video

To be honest I wasn’t all that bothered about the Jubilee this weekend.  I’m not a royalist, not even a big fan of the whole monarchy thing and had just seen it as another excuse to get us Brits to part with yet more cash and fund more tourist tat.

That was however until I heard about the Diamond Jubilee Big Lunch. The Big Lunch is not a new concept, in fact this is the fourth Big Lunch and just happens to fall on the same weekend as the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

As announced by Buckingham Palace The Big Jubilee Lunch will be a part of the main programme of events over the central weekend of Diamond Jubilee celebrations in June 2012. A special 4-day bank holiday – Saturday 2nd to Tuesday 5th June. So, what better way to get outside and get your neighbours together and get to know each other over sandwiches, cake and lots of scrumptious goodies whilst having a holiday at the same time!
