A Lovely Jubbly Jubilee

A Lovely Jubbly Jubilee

To celebrate Her Majesty the Queen becoming the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee we will be taking a look at some of Hope and Story’s most royal and regal products. Queen Elizabeth has given 70 years of service to Great Britain, so it is only right that we celebrate in style. This year we are gifted with a four-day bank holiday weekend which will be full of exciting events and initiatives such as ‘Trooping the Colour’, ‘The Derby at Epsom Downs’ and ‘Platinum Party at the Palace’.

 

Serve With Style

Many of us will be hosting garden parties, back yard BBQ’s and street parties in honour of the special event. You can find basic Union Jack tableware in most shops and supermarkets but if you want to really pull out all the stops and impress your guests then why not purchase something a little more special?

 

Woo your guests with these incredible 'Queens Platinum Jubilee Handmade Coasters' by ‘Bean and Bemble. The colourful designs include the British Royal Coat of Arms, the Platinum Jubilee Medal, a Royal Air Force Red Arrow, and the Union Jack - fit for a queen!

 

This beautiful ‘Queens Platinum Jubilee Patterned Tea Towel’ can be held onto as a sentimental keepsake. It celebrates Her Majesty’s 70 years as monarch with its purple colour and royal design.

 

Red, White, and Blue – Dress the Part

As this is a royal event, it is only fitting that we will flying the Union Jack flag. Many schools will be asking children to come to school dressed in red, white, and blue, houses will be hanging the flag and people will be throwing parties with dress codes. Hope and Story have an array of unique, British fashion items that are perfect for this event.

This ‘Jubilee Diamond Silk Pocket Square’ has been designed by aviation artist, David Bent, and honours the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, The Red Arrows. This is a great gift as it is presented in a wonderful display box.
