A Royal Wedding Viewing Party

We are only days away from the wedding of the decade, and I for one, can’t wait to see how it all comes together! The wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton will be nothing short of amazing and I thought I’d share a few ideas with you in case you want to host a party and watch the nuptials in royal style.

Since this is primarily a “girly” event (weddings in general) I decided to use a feminine color palette of soft pink, rose, and cream for the decorative details. This is also reminiscent of the florals found on English china. This is the time to use your tiered serving stand, your best set of china, and your silver pieces.

You can set your DVR and record the event to watch later if you like, and host a brunch with scones, crumpets (English muffins), sliced ham, and fresh berries. For decor, make sure to use teapots and teacups and fill them with pretty flower arrangements. Place some hats, which you can get from a thrift store for little money, on various heights of hat stands or pillar candle holders. You can also have an array of hats for your guests to choose from and wear, or require them to wear their own. No proper royal event would be complete without them!

To add more interest to your food display, utilize the printable picks available from Bird’s Party. This set incorporates our color scheme, gold crowns, and Union Jack. Another great printable resource, is Paper & Cake who has designed these fantastic photo props available in a top hat, a tiara, and of course, that gorgeous ring! Don’t forget to toast the bride and groom with champagne. Set up a variety of juices to add to the glass – orange juice, peach nectar, and pear nectar are all great choices.

What’s a wedding without wedding cake? I love these mini wedding cakes served instead of cupcakes. You can make these using a specially shaped baking pan, or by baking a sheet cake and cutting out different sized circles using a set of biscuit cutters. Just stack them, ice them, and add a few decorative touches with piping bags and decorating supplies. As a parting gift for your guests, place some “tea bag” cookies in a celephane bag and tie it up with a pretty ribbon. You could also add a couple of real tea bags to the gift if you like. These tea bag cookies are easy to make using a shortbread recipe and following the instructions found on Beurrista.


However you choose to celebrate, this Royal Wedding is sure to be a spectacular event!
