Royal Wedding Party
Written by on Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

If you need a fun idea to help you recover from the post-Easter blues, consider getting up early (east U.S. coast) or going to bed late (west U.S. coast), etc. so you can enjoy celebrating the Royal couple’s big day – Friday, April 29th, beginning at 4:00 a.m. EST.   If you don’t have time to join them on their big day because of work commitments, consider recording the event to view at a more convenient time.  Whenever you’re ready….scones

enjoy the festivities along with a cup of tea and one of the best scone recipes:  http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/worlds-best-scones-from-scotland-to-the-savoy-to-the-us/Detail.aspx

 

You might even want your own souvenir – a replica of the royal engagement ring – available at Michael’s craft stores for around $6 (with a 40% off coupon): http://www.michaels.com/Bead-Landing%E2%84%A2-Princess-Ring/bd0929,default,pd.html?cgid=products&start=1

You can enjoy the festivities, on your own in your fuzzy slippers, or invite a few friends to join you.  If that sounds like fun, here is a free ROYAL PARTY INVITATION template you can download: http://www.bettycrocker.com/sitecore/shell/controls/rich%20text%20editor/~/media/Files/PDF/RoyalWedding_Invite.ashx

For a change, something happy is in the news, so enjoy the pomp & circumstance and feel free to celebrate with the happy couple.  Congratulations William & Kate!


Thoroughly enjoyed the “Royal Wedding Viewing” party this morning (except for the 4:00 a.m. start, of course – LOL)

In keeping with my motto of “celebrating on a budget”, the souvenirs for our Royal Wedding Viewing Party totaled only $5.  The cup was $1 and the sticker (of the royal couple) was made and printed from a computer, the Crown ornament and soap were both found at Michael’s Craft Store for $1 each and the cookies were made by a local baker for $1 each also.  I think the ornament, especially, will be a fun reminder when hung on my tree, once Christmas arrives!

    I am planning to have a few people over early Friday morning (I am EST). Two people are definite and 3 are still iffy!! But, I bought some small bottles of hand sanitizer from Bath & Body Works that are British themed to give as little gifts. I am planning to print some Will & Kate paper dolls and put them on TV trays — you can sit on the bride’s or the groom’s side of the room!! I have seen some cute cupcake toppers for this event that I’ll be printing and sticking in the homemade donuts I plan to make. Also, there will be plastic tiaras to wear in our hair.

    Any excuse for a party, right??
