The Royal Wedding


I simply cannot resist anything “Royal”.

Way back in 1981 I remember sitting glued to the TV watching Charles and Diana’s wedding. I was “Diana” crazy at the time – I collected magazines and books that depicted her. I even made a {sticky} icing-clad “wedding cake” for the occasion. Unfortunately I don’t have a photo, just a fond, albeit vague, memory of loads of icing piped on it. I was 12 years old.

My dad’s parents were British and we still have family in the UK  so I guess I was raised to love anything British and I must say, I love the historical buildings, the parks  and the beautiful green English landscape as well as all the historical tradition and glamour that goes with the Royal family.

Needless to say, I am looking forward to watching the wedding this Friday. We’re going to have an English morning tea and invite a few friends- simply for the fun of watching together.

I’ve designed some decor goodies which I plan to use to decorate the room with and I would like to share them with you.

So get decorating, bake some English scones and make some tea. {and maybe enjoy a glass of bubbly too!}

Any excuse to decorate a pretty table, serve yummy food and simply enjoy oneself! If you’re going to watch, download these printables, print, cut out and decorate. Have some Royal fun!

1981...I was 2!! ha ha!!
So I guess that is giving away your age hey? Don't worry, you're only 10 years older than me!
The tea party sounds fun, I will watch but won't sit the whole day glued to the TV.

I was Diana mad as well, I was 11 when they got married. Hard to believe William is all grown up and married. Kate looked stunning!
