This week The Queen celebrates her 70 years of service in her Platinum Jubilee. With street parties organised up and down the country, Poppies have decided to give you a few simple and great for budget ideas on how you can join the celebrations!


Everywhere you look on the high street there is bunting, flags and Union Jacks galore. If you can get your hands on them then they are a great way to decorate the house cheaply, but if not, there are plenty of printable flags/bunting online. Even better if you have children on half term at the moment you can get them to colour/make some flags for you to hang in your window.

Food and Drink

A street party would not be complete if it weren’t for a good sandwich and cake to share amongst neighbours. The secret is to stick to your strengths and make something simple, easy and what you know won’t go wrong. Here are a few recipes our staff at Poppies suggested making.
