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.

I love the keep calm and carry on sign. I love that you bought ring pops, your girls will love that! I have two girls too and wish I would of thought of that. I may run out tomorrow and grab some. 🙂 Beautiful table

  2. You’ve done a wonderful job of setting the table with the just the right amount of pomp and fuss and fun. I love the bunting you hung and the tags you put around the wine glasses and on the tea cups. I think some good memories will be made with your girls. I made some heart-shaped scones and will also be watching the wedding tomorrow morning.

  8. Wow this looks amazing!! I just watched on the sofa *humble blush*

  9. Love your table…

  10. Such a fun memory!

  11. Wow, you did a great job! Memories of Charles and Diana’s wedding was one of the reasons I wanted to make it special for my girls too.

    After all my efforts their favourite bit turned out to be having “tea” (water) from a teapot poured into little “teacups” (espresso cups) with “milk” (blackcurrant juice). Took me all of 5 seconds to think up and prepare that one!
