The Coronation big lunch is a tradition that originated in 2012 during the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, and it involves people coming together to share food and celebrate. You can incorporate this tradition into your street party by asking everyone to bring a dish or providing a selection of finger foods.
Some great options for a street party include mini-quiches (the Coronation food chosen), sausage rolls, sandwiches, and mini pizzas. Also, consider serving fruits, salads, and vegetables to ensure a balanced meal. For dessert, serve cupcakes, biscuits, trifle and other sweet treats. Make sure to label food items for those with dietary restrictions, and consider offering vegetarian and gluten-free options For kids, be sure to serve up treats on their favourite Munchy Play plate.
Children's Finger Foods
It's essential to ensure that children have food options they will enjoy. It's often helpful to offer kids their Munchy Play track plates especially for little fussy eaters. Ensure you offer food options that are kid-friendly such as chicken nuggets, mini burgers, pizza slices, sliced fruit, and vegetables with dips. You can also have a candy or ice cream station as a treat.
