7 Essentials for Hosting a Coronation Party

With King Charles’s Coronation just around the corner, we’re looking forward to a long weekend celebrating with friends and family – it’s the perfect time to hang the bunting, ready the barbeque and pop the champagne! We’re looking at 7 essentials for hosting a Coronation party this bank holiday weekend.

Coronation Mug

There’s no better way to say cheers to the new King and Queen than with a dedicated Coronation mug that you can treasure for years. Why not treat your guests to keepsake memorabilia, offering nostalgia every time they drink from it? Made from fine bone china and hand decorated in Stoke-on-Trent, they also come in a smart gift box.

Coronation Tea Towel

Fit for a king, this limited-edition Coronation tea towel makes a lovely decorative display for the Coronation weekend! Hang over your sink, oven, or range cooker for a delightful commemorative kitchen look. You can also help clean up in royal style once the celebrations have finished. Made from 100% cotton.

Gingham Tablecloth or Gingham Table Runner

For a British bank holiday weekend that embraces traditional style, a Gingham Tablecloth or Gingham Table Runner makes the perfect addition to any tablescape - we love these warm stone, teal, and sage green colourways. They’ll make a summer statement to any celebratory dinner party and can be used all year round. Made from 100% linen for a high quality and premium feel.

Essentials for Hosting a Coronation Party

Gingham Napkins

Gather everyone at the table and celebrate in style. No table setting is complete without beautiful napkins and these Gingham Napkins make the perfect feature. Style with the matching tablecloth or runner for the complete look, or pair with an elegant white tablecloth for a simple and sophisticated style.

Essentials for Hosting a Coronation Party

Homemade bunting or paper chains

Bunting and paper chains are a must for any royal celebration – why not make paper chains with the kids the weekend before the Coronation? Simply cut coloured paper into narrow strips, loop them together and tape – then hang beautifully above your table setting or in the window for a royal display.

Strawberries Jug

For British style made easy, fill a few jugs with your favourite flowers and place them around the home - this strawberries design makes the perfect stylish look featuring Sophie’s delicate illustrations of blooming strawberries.

Bees Cake Stand

For the ultimate Coronation party, then a cake is a must! We particularly enjoy a Victoria sponge topped with extra strawberries, and it’ll make a beautiful feature displayed on a stylish cake stand. We love this stoneware cake which features embossed subtle bees - a lovely nod to Sophie's best-selling design. It offers an elegant and rustic look, making it perfect for adding a different texture and material to any setting. Pair with the matching Bees Stoneware Side Plates for serving your delicious dessert.

  • Dear Ann, I’m very sorry but our Coronation Mugs are sold out – these were limited-edition, so we’ll not be getting any more back in. Best wishes, Paige
