Anyway, if you're looking for something to do on the extended Jubilee Bank Holiday then I don't think you can go far wrong with having a massive party (but I'm bound to say that aren't I?).
So if you are looking to have a celebration make sure you have all your boxes ticked and all the necessary regulations are covered.
There are hundreds of website out there that provide you with all the information you need to make sure you don't fall foul of the law. A good place to start is http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/HomeAndCommunity/Gettinginvolvedinyourcommunity/Communitygroupsandprojects/DG_192701
There is some good info on there about holding a small street party and directs you to the different places you may need to go.
A Jubilee party is a great way to get your community together so make sure that everybody is involved as early as possible and that everybody knows what they are doing.
If you're thinking about having a party in the garden then make sure you have all the supplies you need. Obviously this is when I plug my Jubilee Party Boxes. You will find everything you need in there to make sure everybody has a great time. Not only do they include all the party supplies (bunting, flags, plates etc) they also have a games pack in there and also some recipe ideas. So make us your first port of call. They are genuinely so straight forward that once you've ordered your party box you can relax knowing that you won't have to be dashing round the shops and trawling the internet for all the supplies you need. If you want to chat with me about these further then just get in touch.
Make sure you have a Plan B just in case our glorious English weather lets us down. If you're having a garden party then it might be sensible to get a gazebo or something alternative to shelter in!
If you're opening up your garden to neighbours, families and friends then make sure that everybody knows about any potential hazards there might be in your garden ie ponds etc.
I think the Jubilee is a great way for families, friends and communities to get together and celebrate. So make sure you have lots of fun and enjoy it.
I'm sure that I'll think of more Jubilee hints and tips as we approach the big event so expect more blog posts from me on this.
But in the meantime keep smiling and I'll speak to you soon.
