Food, Fun and Fabulosity: Your Essential Guide to Hosting a Perfect Street Party

Get ready to bring the party to your neighbourhood with the quintessentially British tradition of street parties! Picture this: you're surrounded by bunting and balloons, the sound of laughter and music fills the air, and you're with all your neighbours, coming together to celebrate the Coronation. Street parties have been a beloved British tradition for over a century, with the first recorded party dating back to 1919 to commemorate the end of World War I.

From Royal weddings to sporting events, Brits love to use street parties to mark all kinds of special occasions. But it's not just about the event – it's a chance for neighbours to connect, have some fun, and build community spirit. So, get ready to dust off your dancing shoes and whip out the bunting, because we're about to give you the ultimate guide to hosting the perfect street party!

A successful street party needs three essential elements: food, fun, and fabulosity!


Food is a crucial part of any street party. Guests expect to be fed well, so it's essential to have a selection of classic British snacks on offer. At Donald Russell, we take pride in our premium British meats, which are perfect for creating delicious finger foods for your guests to enjoy.

Artisan Sausage Rolls

Sausage rolls are a staple of British cuisine and are perfect for street parties. Our Artisan Sausage Rolls are made by hand using the finest British pork, Wiltshire ham and herbs, wrapped in crisp, flaky puff pastry. They are easy to cook and eat – they'll surely be a hit with your guests. We even have a Giant Sausage Roll perfect for sharing.

Pork Chipolatas

Our Pork Chipolatas <are perfect for a street party. They are small enough to eat in one bite and are packed full of the classic flavour of our Pork Sausages. Serve them with a selection of dips, or with one of Chef Eddie’s glazes and your guests will love them.


Quiche is another classic British snack that is perfect for a street party. Our quiches are made with the finest ingredients, including free-range eggs and gluten-free pastry. They are easy to eat and can be served hot or cold.

Stilton Pork Pie

Pork pies are a quintessential part of British cuisine, and our Stilton Pork Pie is no exception. Made with succulent British pork, traditionally prepared to a classic recipe and tangy Stilton cheese, this pie is a delicious treat for your guests.


The all-important part of any meal - dessert. Based on the official Coronation recipe, our Strawberry & Ginger Cheesecakes have a great mix of classic British flavours. Creamy cheesecake, sweet strawberries and warming ginger.


Having something fun for guests to do is essential for any street party. There are plenty of traditional British games that you can play to keep your guests entertained.

Pin the Crown on the King

Pin the Crown on the King is a fun and easy game to get the kids involved and engaged. All you need is a picture of the King, a crown, and some pins. Blindfold each player and have them try to pin the crown on the King. The winner is the one who gets closest to the right spot.

Egg and Spoon Race

The egg and spoon race is another classic British game that is perfect for street parties. All you need is a spoon and a boiled egg for each player. The first player to complete the race without dropping their egg wins.

Royal-themed Scavenger Hunt

Create a list of items that relate to the British monarchy, such as a crown, a picture of the King, or a Union Jack flag. Hide the items around the party venue, and challenge guests to find them all. You could even offer a prize to the first person or team to find everything.

Royal Trivia

Test your guests' knowledge of the British monarchy with a fun trivia game. You could ask questions like, "What is the King’s full name?" or "Which monarch was known as the 'Virgin Queen'?" Make sure to offer prizes for the guests who answer the most questions correctly.

Royal Photo Booth

Set up a photo booth with props like crowns, tiaras, and sceptres, and encourage guests to take fun pictures. You could even print out the photos and give them to your guests as a memento of the party.

Royal dress-up

Encourage your guests to dress up as their favourite British monarch or royal family member. This could be a fun way to get everyone into the party spirit, and you're sure to get some great photos.

In addition to these activities, make sure to have plenty of party music on hand to keep the energy high - no street party is complete without music and dancing. Create a playlist of your favourite British party songs and encourage your guests to dance the night away. You could even hire a DJ or live band to really get the party going.

With these entertainment ideas, your Coronation street party is sure to be a hit with all your guests. And remember, the most important thing is to have fun and celebrate in true British style!


A street party is not complete without the right decorations. The right decor can transform your neighbourhood into a festive space that your guests will love. Here are some decoration ideas that will help create the ultimate Coronation street party atmosphere:


Nothing says British street party like bunting. It's easy to make, affordable and adds a fun, celebratory feel to any space. You can find a range of bunting options online or make your own using paper, fabric, or even old clothes.


Balloons are another classic decoration for any party. You can create balloon arches, clusters, or even shape them into the Union Jack flag for an extra patriotic touch. Be sure to choose colours that complement your other decor and add a pop of colour to your space.


Adding flags to your party decor is a wonderful way to show your national pride. You can find flags of all sizes and styles online, from mini hand-held versions to large banners that can be hung from balconies or windows.

Don't forget to also consider the weather when planning your decorations. Have a backup plan in case of rain or extreme heat. A covered patio or gazebo can provide shelter from the elements, while portable fans or heaters can help regulate the temperature.

Overall, a Coronation street party is a fantastic way to celebrate a special occasion with your friends and neighbours. By following these three essential steps - food, entertainment, and decoration - you can create a fun and festive atmosphere that will be remembered for years to come.

It's important to keep in mind that there may be certain permissions needed for hosting a street party in your area. Be sure to check with your local council or authorities before organising your event to ensure that you are compliant with any necessary regulations.

Additionally, don't forget to send out invitations to your guests in advance so they can plan accordingly. Encourage them to dress up in royal attire and bring their own contributions to the party, such as homemade treats or decorations.

With these tips in mind, you are well on your way to throwing the ultimate Coronation Street party that your guests will remember for years to come. So, get ready to raise your glasses in a toast to the monarch and celebrate British tradition with your loved ones.
