How to Throw a Party Like the Queen

HOW TO THROW A PARTY LIKE HM THE QUEEN If anyone knows how to throw the ultimate party then surely it's Her Majesty The Queen. Having been metaphorically sitting on her throne for the last 60 years she's refined the art of throwing a barnstorm- ing (or should that be palace-storming?) knees-up, and this year the celebrations are expected to eclipse even those from the past. With the Diamond Jubilee upon us, we - her mere subjects – may also want to throw our own party, so if you want to do it in style, here's the definitive guide to throwing a party like Her Majesty. "WHERE SHOULD YOU HOST IT?" CEGEL HM The Queen hosts 4 garden parties each year with 8,000 guests at each, meaning you'll need a fairly large grassed space. The garden at Buckingham Palace is 40 acres so it's strongly recommend that you befriend your local farmer. Failing that, perhaps try and befriend a member of the Royal Family, although time is fairly pressing. Rumour has it that Prince Harry could be persuaded to lend you the garden in exchange for a couple of bottles of Ciroc Ultra Premium Vodka - believed to be his favoured tipple. "WHO SHOULD YOU INVITE?" You have two options here. If you're a distinguished individual who mixes in the 'right' circles then your friends should already be of the correct class to attend. If on the other hand you're not blue-blooded then you'll need to select your friends carefully and pre-order some fancy-dress outfits for those that fail to understand that you've suddenly elevated yourself into the aristocracy. Typical guests at one of The Queen's parties would be Heads of State, Diplomats and the Armed Services. Invites normally come from the Lord Chamberlain's Office but we suggest your guests RSVP to yourself - just to avoid any confusion." "WHAT'S ON MY SHOPPING LIST?" Having spent so much hiring a huge garden you'd hate your guests to be disappointed with the fayre on offer so it's suggested that you only use suppliers that hold a distinguished Royal Warrant. These are given to show that companies have been supplying goods and services to the Royal Household for 5 years or more and will seriously impress your esteemed guests. If you'd like to apply for your very own Royal Warrant then applications are accepted once a year with the deadline being the end of May. 16,000 Sausages "Musks Ltd" 10,000 Cakes "Fisher & Donaldson" 10,000 Glasses 8,000 pieces of smoked salmon "Royal Brierley Crystal" "The Seafood Company" 8,000 Chocolates "Prestat" 8,000 Invites "Frank Smythson" 5,000 Tea Bags 200 Portable Toilets "Darville & Son" "Event-A-Loo" 1,300 Bottles Champagne "Bollinger" 150 Cheeses "Paxter & Whitfield" 40 Bottles Sloe Gin 1 Ladies Suit "James Hawker & Co."
