Celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee by styling your home in all things British.

It’s fair to say that I have quite a royal theme going on in my living room. My favourite find is this Royal Crest, which takes pride of place on my wall…
I first spotted it at Portobello Road Market and regretted not buying it. Then saw one again at Taste of Christmas festival, but was going for drinks straight afterwards so couldn’t take it home. It took weeks of searching afterwards but I finally found a seller on ebay…
I also have quite a collection of Union Jack cushions. My favourite is the commemorative Royal Wedding one, it’s just the right side of kitsch, but I still get a lot of stick for having one!
If you want to try your hand at making your own, then take a look at How-To Sew a Union Jack Cushion. So much fun!
With the Diamond Jubilee approaching, I’m finding stuff I want to add to my living room on an almost daily basis. Here’s a selection of my favourites:
This Diamond Jubilee National Anthem print would look amazing behind my sofa.
It’s £24.99 from Not on the High Street
No home is complete without union jack bunting.
This light blue version is from Lakeland, £6.99.
You can’t celebrate the jubilee properly without a jubilee teapot. This Emma Bridgewater one is £75 from John Lewis.
I really want this cup and saucer. The set is £10.99 from Play.com.
Do you know what would go really well with tea in a royal mug? Scones with Jubilee jam…
These jams are £1.39 each from Not on the High Street.
I’ll be using them in the Victoria Sponge I’ll be making for the street party.
Talking about the Victoria Sponge how about these for toppers? They start at £4 from John Lewis.
I have to include corgis somewhere in my Jubilee post!
This biscuit tin is £12.50 from M&S.
Finally, the only thing needed to complete the Jubilee weekend is a jeroboam of Pimm’s:
This commemorative bottle costs £150.00 but at three litres you’d have the drinks for your street party covered and you could keep the bottle as a souvenir afterwards.
