Kate Middleton’s family give tips for celebrating the Queen’s jubilee

February 6, 2012 by  

Kate Middleton’s family recently spoke about their top tips for celebrating the Queen’s jubilee this year.

The Middletons run an online party supplies website called Party Pieces. In a recent edition of their online magazine, an editorial feature focused on giving party tips that would help event organisers to save money and be more sustainable. The magazine piece reads:

“Whether it’s an imminent family birthday or a gathering to celebrate the Olympics or the Queen’s diamond jubilee later in 2012 we offer a few ideas to help keep costs down and still throw a memorable party. Now’s the time to stock up and fill the cupboard with essentials, so take advantage of… discounts and get in a new celebration banner”

Many local print shops offer services such as banner printing, so from Croydon to Carlisle, people up and down the country will be able to create bespoke celebration banners for various occasions, whether this is for birthdays, Olympic parties or celebrating the Queen’s jubilee. Keeping the message on the banner quite neutral will also help to keep costs down as banners can be used again and again.

Some other tips that Party Pieces offer include investing in a range of reusable plastic plates, cutlery and cups and making decorations at home. Kate Middleton’s parents founded their company Party Pieces in 1987 and so have a number of years’ experience when it comes to giving party tips. The fact that their daughter is now part of the royal family also helps them to remain close to royal events, putting them in an ideal position to make recommendations about celebrating these events.
