Stay inside for VE Day!

75 years since VE Day.
We celebrate 75 years since VE Day.

VE Day in Lockdown. No what we expected but we can make do.

Of course, we must adhere to the current precautions and measures put in place to keep us and everyone around us safe. But this does not mean we cannot celebrate this victorious day. You can do so, safely, right from your own home!

In case you didn’t know, 75 years ago, on the 8th May, the fight against Nazi Germany came to an end in Europe. This day is now formally known as VE Day, and 75 years on we are honouring those who gave their lives for the sake of our country and us today.

Wondering how you can celebrate VE Day in your own home? Well we have a few ideas up our sleeves…

Baking VE Day Style

With plenty of time on your hands what could be more fun than a bit of light baking? If your up to the challenge whip a classic British bake such as a Victoria Sponge, Lemon Drizzle or even some scones! Want something slightly easier, why not try some cookies and muffins. Get the kids involved and decorate them with some red, white, and blue icing and sprinkles.

Indoor/Garden tea party or picnic

As mentioned in my previous blog, back in 1945 the people of Europe swarmed the streets marking the occasion with street parties which consisted of lots of dancing, singing and festivities. With street parties not being an option why not create the next best thing in the form of a tea party or picnic! You’ve already got your cakes and bakes, now all you need are some savoury snacks, a picnic blanket and a whole lot of love and happiness.

VE Day Arts & Crafts

Get out the sticky tape, glue and crayons and make some union jack bunting ready to surround your tea party or picnic area. This is a great one for any ages and can bring the family together. It is also a great way to educate the young ones on what VE Day actually is and even an opportunity for the oldies to reminisce and share stories of their own.

Sounds pretty perfect right? Well the celebrations don’t stop there. What better way to top off the day than with an immense fireworks display!

That Special Ending

Fireworks are always a great addition to any celebration. And especially now, they are a great way to bring light and positivity to such a scary time. They allow people to bring something special to their home and celebrations. As long as you have the recommended safety distance, as stated on our website, then you are good to go.
