On Saturday 6th May 2023, the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III will take place at Westminster Abbey. Along with the whole Commonwealth, the United Kingdom will be celebrating what is perhaps the first Coronation witnessed in their lifetime. Marked with a three-day bank holiday weekend starting on Saturday 6th May through to Monday 8th May 2023, there is likely to be much pomp and ceremony across the whole country and Commonwealth. After such festivities last year whilst celebrating the late Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee, the streets are likely to play host to street parties and garden parties galore. With bunting, Coronation souvenirs and memorabilia playing their part in celebrating, recording and remembering the special day. Here at Love Lumi we don’t need much excuse for a celebration and our team have curated a dedicated collection to make sure however you plan to celebrate, you do it in style. Here are some of our favourite ideas to make sure the Coronation weekend goes to plan.
Make sure you get the perfect family photo with “I was there for King Charles III coronation” t-shirts for the whole family. Starting with baby grows and bibs for the youngest family members, with kids t-shirts and matching adult t-shirts completing the set.
No party is complete without party food and nibbles (don’t forget the Coronation Chicken sandwiches!). Coronation cake stands are the perfect way to display cupcakes and sandwiches and cake toppers proudly sit on top. Scatter confetti table decorations are a great way to decorate the table along with bunting, table runners, and Union Jack adorned paper plates and serviettes.
If you are celebrating with your favourite tipple (G&T over here!), then enamel mugs and thermal drinks bottle are great for both garden parties and street parties whilst making lasting souvenirs of the day.
We understand parties and celebrations might not appeal to everyone and you might be looking for a way to show your support for His Royal Highness in your own way. A commemorative candle can proudly sit on any window sill or mantle piece and a seasonal bouquet of flowers will look fabulous in a printed glass vase.
So, there you have it. However you celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III we hope you have a wonderful weekend with friends and family. Do remember to share you photos with us by tagging us in your posts! @lovelumiltd across the platforms!
