Celebrating VE day on lockdown this year? Here's everything you need - from bunting to gorgeous decorations...

Although VE Day celebrations will be a bit different this year, you can still celebrate it in style.

Coronavirus has had all of us changing and postponing plans and celebrations - be it a friend’s birthday or hen-do, or major ones like the Queen’s birthday and now Victory in Europe Day. Good thing is we’re all learning to adapt and moving real life parties to online or door step ones.

Regardless if you’re quarantining by yourself, with your family or with flatmates, you can still have some fun and get ready to celebrate VE day on 8th May. Decorate the house, get a pop of blue, red or white in your outfit and get in the mood to a house party or rock that Zoom call.
