Royal Wedding Pajama Watch Party

Something to Celebrate, HostingAmy Wiley4 Comments

I'm still floating around in a fairy tale dream after this weekend's royal wedding.  It was just splendid!  A few ladies came over to watch with me and my daughter and it made it all the more fun.  Today I'm sharing the details of our little watch party.

Dessert first!  I ordered a simple cake from our grocer that read "Sparkle like Markle."  It was delicious and completely worth the odd look I got while ordering... ha!  I had leftover napkins from Prince William's wedding to Kate so I figured this was the day to use them.  I put everything on a commemorative tea towel celebrating Harry and Meghan.


Speaking of tea towels, my little display was made for this day!


 I had a whole box full of items from my last royal wedding party, so I had a great time pulling all those out and added some Amazon finds like this Harry and Meghan bunting and life-sized cutout of the queen.


My Mother's Day flowers, a British tray, and some cookie tins decorated the breakfast nook.


The early morning hour was perfect for a pajama party.  My husband found these for me and I just love them so much.


Guests were offered tea, naturally, along with orange juice and water.


Of course I had the good old American coffee bar stocked as well.


Breakfast included a variety of scones, raspberry French toast, breakfast casserole and fruit.


I tucked some Trader Joe's flowers into teapots and had them throughout the party.


I've had this carriage for years and sometimes take it to the florist so they can create an arrangment inside.  I didn't get this done with my busy schedule, but a rose bowl full of flowers worked nicely.


 A little bunting added some Union Jacks to the viewing area.


My pantry door was in on the action as well.


I even decorated the fridge.


This was an obvious occassion to wear my replica of Duchess Catherine's ring.  I couldn't resist wearing it all weekend!


We did a little bingo game during the viewing and the winner took home this book on the happy couple.


I loved the wedding so much and it was the perfect occasion to entertain some sweet ladies in my life.   I'm already looking forward to the day we celebrate another royal event!
