June 2022 marks 70 years that Queen Elizabeth II has reigned, and what better way to celebrate this glorious achievement than with some beautiful and sustainable home décor items from Decorator’s Notebook!
In this article, we’ll inspire you with some exciting ideas for celebrating the jubilee…
Whether you’re young or old, nothing beats a relaxing picnic in the summer. 2022 is special in that we have something extraordinary to celebrate with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
If you’re planning on going all out with a jubilee picnic, do it in style with some attractive, fair trade throws for outdoor picnics from Decorator’s Notebook.
We also have some unique, fine weave colourful baskets from Kenya that you could use to carry all your jubilee goodies and treats.
Don’t forget to eat and drink in style, and consider buying a set of attractive but sustainably-made glassware from Decorator’s Notebook.
Sustainable Street Party.
Most streets in the UK will be closed off for at least one jubilee street party.
You will probably find that your neighbours and local residents in your area will decorate lampposts with Union Jack bunting, and have tables on the pavements for delicious food and drink. Why not play your part in your local street party by decorating a table with some pretty and eco-friendly decorations?
Browse Decorator’s Notebook’s range of sustainable serving pieces for street parties to make your table stand out. Our attractive indigo ceramic serving bowls you can use to serve your salads and other barbecue goodies.
We have some really pretty and unique serving plates for you to choose from, and the best part is that by supporting Decorator’s Notebook, you’re also supporting deserving artists, makers and creators throughout the world.
Celebratory Indoor Tea.
Something that all Brits know is that our weather can be highly unpredictable, even during the summer. If the worst comes to the worst, and it’s raining on the day you planned your jubilee celebration, simply move it indoors!
There is nothing more delightful than a luxurious afternoon tea that includes good quality tea, freshly-baked scones, delicate sandwiches, and sweet treats.
In keeping with the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, why not decorate your dining room table with some beautiful made tableware from social e-enterprise groups from around the world?
Our sustainable serving platters and bowls, place mats and coasters are eco-friendly and lovingly made by disadvantaged makers from around the world. These items could add that “je ne sais quoi” to your table and impress your guests.
Decorator’s Notebook has some beautiful fair trade white striped sustainable glassware to grace your tea table.
Keeping with the red, white and blue theme, we also have some matching carnival blue jute hand plaited placemats and coasters that you can use time and time again.
Since everyone knows that tea tastes much better when taken from a pretty mug or cup, our range of stylish mugs are a must for the traditional tea drinkers.
If the weather co-operates and you manage to fit in a barbecue on a sunny day to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee, do so in the most creative way possible!
Instead of sitting on outdoor garden furniture, you could place a sustainable picnic blanket from Decorator’s Notebook on the grass for your guests. If you want to make them more comfortable, use a few brightly-coloured throw and cushions to create a bohemian atmosphere.
