FREE Printables: Diamond Jubliee Celebration

FREE Printables: Diamond Jubliee Celebration

We love a good excuse to celebrate… and this one only comes ’round once in a very blue moon! This year marks Queen Elizabeth II’s 60th year in reign, and the official Diamond Jubliee celebrations begin tomorrow…for only the 2nd time in history!

PARTY TIME + PRINTABLES

That means street parties & parades – and not just in the UK (check THIS out) – so pack up a picnic and call up some friends! We even whipped up some FREE Printables to help you get in the spirit – including party circles (or cupcake toppers), food labels (blank and pre-filled) and food/drink flags. :) Scroll down for download links + a few ideas on recipes, last minute decorations, and activities!
