As you will know it is now under a month until the big day, but don’t fret, there’s still plenty of time to gather all your materials and make lots of bright and beautiful decorations for your event!
Our Decorations Page is bursting full of crafty ideas to make for your Big Lunch. From colourful paper chains and lanterns, to customised tablecloths and bunting- we’re giving you all the tips you need to get creative.
Our friends at ScrapstoresUK have now made it even easier for you to create your bunting with their special Big Jubilee Lunch bunting pdf and their ‘Fabric for a Fiver Packs’ that include scraps of old materials for you to make your bunting flags.
Scrapstores have 90 stores across the UK, each one brimming full of old scraps waiting to be put to good use. They are making it easier for everyone to join in and get creative by visiting their local store to pick up their Big Jubilee Bunting Packs, as well as all sorts of other treasures to be found!
Every scrapstore is run by a small but committed group of people, many or all of which are volunteers. This is why the charity was created: to share the network’s knowledge, to support, connect and promote scrapstores with a common voice.
