The Royal Wedding

I wasn’t originally planning on doing anything to mark this occasion, other than watching, but…the closer the Royal Wedding got the more I thought about being a little girl when Princess Diana got married, and wanted to give my little girls something to remember. So, I had a little fun today coming up with this for the morning!

I started with a some amazing free pintables I found on line.

The bunting is from brides.com, and the “Keep Calm and Marry On” is from The TomKat Studios. I don’t have a colour printer, but I just take them to my local Staples and voila!

I also used some of the free pintables from the Design Editor. I think it’s amazing how all these great sites share their beautiful work for free!

I used some of the pintables on the tea mugs, and some on the champagne flutes for our orange juice.

I also found some fun favours for little girls, and big girls alike! Our very own princess tiaras, and big, beautiful, blue sapphire rings!

For our centre piece, my sweet husband brought me some red sweetheart roses, and I added more of the pintables, with “blue sapphire” embellishments. In keeping with the jewel theme, I found these pretty floating candles too.

On the menu in the morning, along with tea and orange juice, are scones with clotted cream, butter and jam.

We’ll also enjoy some toasted crumpets!

And some fruit, that matches our red and blue colour theme.

Also, for a little sweet treat later, some classic British cookies: shortbread and empire cookies, that I picked up at the British bakery today.

I’m really looking forward to tomorrow morning, and so are two little girls.
