welcome to the {royal wedding} weekend

You didn’t think I’d ignore it entirely did you?! Admittedly, I’ve not been that caught up in all the royal wedding hullabaloo but that doesn’t stop me loving (unabashedly) the idea of a proper Royal Wedding Party. If you happen to be planning a last minute celebration, here are some decor and food ideas that might just (royally) tickle your fancy.

1. Design Editor has all the down-loadable paper goods you can imagine for decorating a British/Royal themed party. 2.  BBC Food of course has a several possible Royal Wedding recipes to choose from but here are some of my faves. Cucumber sandwiches! 3. Sausage rolls are so quintessentially British and so delicious. Check out my recipe for mini sausage rolls (so cute!) here. 4. Lord, I think I’m dribbling all over myself. Traditional scones with clotted cream and jam. Absolute favourite. 5. If you’re going to bake a cake, make it a Victoria Sponge. 6. For something more dainty, I’d recommend these strawberry and cream cupcakes. 7. And last but not least, don’t forget to kick things off with some Pimm’s Punch. Cheers!

the sandwiches look precious – like doll house food! so cute. By the way, I couldn’t help but share this. Have you seen this on Cup of Jo’s blog. Look at the flower girl. So funny.
