Our Top 10 Coronation Party Ideas
A Royal Quiz
A game fit for the whole family, a royal quiz is sure to bring out a competitive streak in all of your Coronation party guests both young and old.
Putting together an entertaining quiz doesn’t need to take hours upon end. Simply research some historical facts and figures and create a list of questions and answers ready for the big day.
Whatever you do, don’t forget to offer a much-deserved prize to the winner!
If you’re searching for the perfect gift for the royalist in your family, our Coronation-themed Cupcake Selection Box is the ideal choice. Featuring 6 cupcakes laced in red, white and blue icing and topped with a Coronation chocolate plaque, these stunning cakes look almost too good to eat!
Food & Drink Fit For a King
No Coronation party is complete without a banquet fit for a King or Queen. From stuffed Yorkshire puddings and scotch eggs to Cornish pasties and Victoria sponge cake, your Coronation banquet offers the perfect opportunity to celebrate all things British.
At Piglet’s Pantry, our Scotch Egg & Sausage Roll Boxes are the perfect addition to your table. Each filled with mouthwatering coronation curry spices, these delicious savoury treats provide the perfect centrepiece to any table.
Alternatively, if you’ve volunteered to contribute something sweet to a Coronation street party celebration, our traditional Victoria sandwich box includes a stunning individual round cake, featuring vanilla sponge, red, white and blue sprinkles and a chocolate crown topper, sure to provide that extra wow-factor.
Keep your guests entertained throughout the King’s Coronation bank holiday by hosting a series of medieval-style game tournaments.
Transport people back in time by encouraging party-goers to engage in archery, sword fighting and jousting competitions.
You could even invite everyone to attend the party in traditional, period costumes, offering prizes to the best dressed!
If you’re searching for the perfect way to please the arts and crafts fanatics among your family and friends, a crown-making station is a crucial addition to any royal-themed event.
Create a designated area where guests can make their very own crowns or tiaras, offering prizes to the most eligible Princes and Princesses. All you need to provide is some card, scissors, glue, jewels, pens and pencils and let the creative juices flow!
No Coronation party is complete without an abundance of Union Jacks.
To ensure all of your guests are sporting the relevant attire, be sure to invest in some face paints and enlist your most arty friends and family to man the face painting station.
The only colours you’ll need are red, white and blue – so this super fun activity is a great option if you’re working on a tight budget. Don’t forget to take lots of pictures throughout the day to ensure the memories last for years to come.
Pin the Crown on the King
A Coronation-themed take on the classic party game Pin the Tale on the Donkey, this fun-filled activity is sure to keep your guests laughing all day long.
Simply print out an A3 portrait of King Charles, along with a separate image of the most bejewelled crown you can find, and see who can pin the crown the closest to the King’s head while blindfolded – trust me – it’s trickier than it seems!
