Coronation Day Celebration Ideas for Families | AD

On Saturday the 6th of May 2023, King Charles III’s coronation will take place. A coronation doesn’t happen very often so it will be a memorable, historical event. It’s the perfect time to get friends and family gathered for a celebration to share this special day – or why not celebrate all weekend with the extra bank holiday Monday to enjoy too!

In this article, I’ve gathered some Coronation Day celebration ideas for families to mark this once in a lifetime event. Read on to find out more.

  • Prepare for a Coronation Garden Party

Hopefully, we’ll get some nice and sunny spring weather to enjoy over the Coronation Day bank holiday weekend so that we can celebrate the most British way with a garden party! Prepare your garden for celebrations with classic garden furniture that provides plenty of seating for your guests. Decorate with bunting and flowers in red, white, and blue.

It’s the perfect time to enjoy the season’s first barbecue so make sure that’s all set up and ready in your garden. Be prepared for all weather conditions and temperatures with a gazebo in case it rains and a garden parasol for shade in case it’s really sunny.

A fire pit makes an amazing addition to a garden party too as a cosy centre point to gather around in the evening for warmth and atmosphere. We have this stylish Black and Copper Fire Pit from VonHaus which is made from solid steel and finished with elegant copper details.

It also comes complete with a fire poker, a mesh lid, and a removable BBQ grate so that you can enjoy using your fire pit as a BBQ too! I love multi-purpose products like this! The diameter of this firepit is 63cm which means that the cooking platform is very generously sized. We can’t wait to try this – I will share more on Instagram when we have a fire going or are enjoying a fire pit BBQ.

  • Coronation Party Food & Drink Ideas

You can’t go wrong with a BBQ for a garden party with a selection of burgers, hot dogs and halloumi and all the toppings! You could also opt for homemade pizzas if you have an outdoor pizza oven in your garden. Another fun and very British idea is to opt for picnic style foods in a buffet style with sharing dishes and platters filled with sandwiches, quiches, pork pies, cakes, scones and more. Pretty cake tins, cake stands, vintage floral patterns and prints on tea cups and plates, along with wicker hampers, gingham napkins, and picnic blankets will bring the look together perfectly. Images and products above are by Wayfair.

If you are skilled in the kitchen, you can bake your own quiches or dessert tarts to enjoy on Coronation Day. Use high-quality quiche tins from Dexam for the best result – they come in different shapes and sizes and have a loose base so that you can easily lift your quiche from the pan. Here, you can see the 14″/36cm Non-Stick Rectangular Quiche Tin. Also from Dexham, is this fun Crown Cookie Cutter so that you can make Royal biscuits – a great activity to do with the kids!

If baking is not your thing then there are plenty of Coronation themed options to choose from in the shops and online too, like these gorgeous homemade King Charles Coronation biscuits from Crumbsbiscuits. They are fondant iced sugar cookies that are handmade in the UK. They come individually wrapped and in a mixture of the four designs that you can see above. The Coronation Day biscuits will be posted out on the 3rd of May by Royal Mail tracked 24 to arrive in time for the big day.

When it comes to drinks, I know the perfect thing for this event – The Coronation Gin from Gin In A Tin. Gin In A Tin create bespoke collections of gin that can be delivered straight to your door as individual tins, gift sets, personalised tins or gin subscriptions. They also make special edition gins like their newly launched The Coronation Gin. This gin has been created in collaboration with Historic Royal Palaces to celebrate the coronation of Their Majesties King Charles III and Camilla, Queen Consort.

The design of the tin features a magnificent gold foiled crown, inspired by the Crown Jewels, adorned with the iconic symbols of the four nations of the United Kingdom: a classic English rose, a traditional Scottish thistle, a springtime Welsh daffodil and the delicate Irish shamrock. The colour royal purple is also featured in the illustration and the label design – a colour that historically reflected a wearer’s wealth and regal status.

Of course, the gin inside is of exceptional quality too – fit for a king or anyone who wants to celebrate Coronation Day! It’s a timeless London Dry Gin with a 40% ABV, made with exciting botanicals and distilled in small batches.

The Coronation Gin does not contain any added sugar nor artificial flavourings. The classic flavours come from the botanicals – the gin has distinctive citrus notes of lemon peel and orange, and subtle notes of coriander and cardamon, all centred around juniper berries. It’s a smooth, crisp, and delicious gin that makes a perfect royal tipple – enjoy in a classic G&T or in any other gin cocktail. Make a toast for the king and celebrate this historic moment with your loved ones! Once the gin is all gone, the tin itself can be kept as a memento of the event too (though it is fully sustainable and recyclable, complete with a biodegradable label!).

Coronation Day Celebration Cocktail

Next up, a Coronation Day Cocktail that is made with vodka according to the recipe but could of course be made with The Coronation Gin from Gin In A Tin too.

The recipe below is by Wayfair and so is the image featuring the cocktail above. It’s a garden-inspired spritz, decorated with edible flowers, that can easily be made into a mocktail too:
