2022 marks the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, which we'll celebrate with a four-day bank holiday weekend from 2nd-5th June.
To commemorate the Queen's 70 years of service, streets up and down the UK will be hosting parties, afternoon teas and putting out trays of celebratory fancy sandwiches (our favourite).
The extended bank holiday is the ideal time to invite friends and families over, and that's why retailers have gone all out with their Platinum Jubilee party bits and bobs.

Decorations and memorabilia are already selling out extremely fast, so if you've scrolled through a few high street stores only to find bare shelves or the dreaded 'sold out' emblem, we recommend a browse through Amazon, which has no shortage (yet) of fun, affordable decorations you'll want to add to your basket ASAP.
We've hunted high and low for the bestsellers to get your party off to a royal-worthy start, whether you're looking for royal bunting, union jack paper cups or games to play on the day, this mega list has well and truly got you covered.
