Confetti Fit For Royalty

With the all-important King and Queen's Coronation on the horizon, we wanted to mark the momentous occasion by creating a special confetti mix of rich reds, vibrant blues and elegant ivory tones to symbolize the Union Jack.

We have even created some fun Royal Confetti Sachets for those of you planning to host a coronation street or garden party! Remember confetti is not just for weddings, it can be used for any type of celebration.

What is the Coronation?

In May this year, King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla will officially be coronated King and Queen of England. Where a UK bank holiday weekend has been put in place for us to celebrate from Saturday 6th May – Monday 8Th May 2023.


Celebrating the Coronation

In honour of Their Majesty's, the four-day celebrations will see public events and community activities taking place, such as:

· Saturday 6th May – The Coronation of His Majesty the King and Her Majesty the Queen Consort will take place at Westminster Abbey.

· Sunday 7th May – The BBC is set to broadcast a special concert live from Windsor Castle in aid of the coronation.

· Sunday 7th May – The Big Coronation Lunch, neighbours and communities are encouraged to get together and share tea and cake in an act of celebration and friendship.

· Monday 8th May – The Big Help Out, organised by The Together Coalition to highlight the impact of the incredible work that is done by volunteers bringing communities together.

As a nation we Brits have a long history of organised street parties; with the big coronation lunch planned for Sunday 7th May, this special occasion has never been a better excuse to pull out all the stops and create some fantastic community spirit. Embrace this bank holiday weekend and with the help of your neighbours turn your street into a patriotic wonderland, hanging royal bunting between the houses and serving Pimms in mismatched crockery for an eclectic look. Enjoy eating deluxe sausage rolls, cheese and pickle sandwiches and create a yummy table centrepiece by lining your trestle tables with cake stands filled with scones and Victoria sponge cakes, add our Coronation Confetti Sachets to finish off the table decorations. Have one sachet per person, and get everyone to throw together in celebration so you can capture the unforgettable day with blue and red-filled confetti pictures. A moment you can cherish forever.
