This year marks 70 years since Queen Elizabeth II ascended to the throne on 6 February 1952. As the platinum jubilee celebrations readily approach, the Queen makes history by being the longest-reigning monarch in British history. All over the country, people are preparing to host a Platinum Jubilee party to commemorate the day.

While it may be cause for celebration, the festivities aren't due to take place until closer to the anniversary of the Queen's coronation, which took place on 2 June 1953. And in spite of the ever-changing British weather, we're hoping that the summer will bring plenty of sunshine, making it the perfect way to celebrate the event by being the host of your very own Platinum Jubilee party.

So, if you're looking for jubilee party ideas to commemorate 70 years of the Queen, we have the best suggestions that'll help to set the event off just right. From theme ideas to party decorations, and games to music, be assured that you'll be able to create something truly special for your guests.

The best Jubilee party ideas

To sum up, why not take a look at our best jubilee party ideas and jubilee party decorations to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee 2022.

A street party

A British tradition in response to any royal event worth celebrating. A street party is a perfect way to do so. Not only is it fun for all involved, but it also offers a sense of community that a lot of us may have missed over the last few years.

Hosting your own street party usually involves getting permission from your local council first. Before you go ahead and arrange a street party, always make sure you're well researched, prepared and organised.

On that note, here are some of our jubilee party ideas for a fantastic street party that won't be forgotten...
