Are you looking for last minute ideas for a quick and easy Royal Wedding Watch party?
I’ve put together simple ways to bring the fun right to your living room, from décor, to place settings, so easy recipes. They’re so fun, you won’t even realize that it’s 6 in the morning.
How To Plan a Quick and Easy Royal Wedding Watch Party
Head on over to the Dollar Tree or Party city (or even your neighborhood grocery store) and pick up some pretty spring floral plates. OR save money and dust off the china that’s been sitting in your cabinet since Thanksgiving. Using special table settings will make the morning feel more festive.
The wedding will be at 7am EDT, so you’ll probably want tea party food with a breakfast flare.
I recommend scones and muffins.
You could also do breakfast-style tea sandwiches, such as smoked salmon or egg salad.
My older daughter is excited to make cucumber humus cups. She explained to me that you cut the cucumber into 4 pieces, then take a melon baller and scoop out the middle, and add humus. She saw it on a Disney Channel interstitial (and thus immediately reminded me “See Mom, TV is educational.”)
Of course, you must include tea. Then for some sparkle add mimosas or champagne and elderflower. (The official Royal wedding cake will have lemon and elderflower.)
Don’t forget fun mocktails like this.
Don’t forget your hats and fascinators. We’re going to use our coffee filter flowers and attach them to headbands. Coffee filter flowers can seriously be made in 5 minutes. And you probably already have coffee filters. Click here for the super easy How To.
It is widely speculated that Meghan Markle will be carrying a white bouquet of flowers from the Queen’s garden, as per the Royal tradition. The bouquet will most likely be made up of myrtle, and white roses (Princess Diana’s favorite flower) as well as white peonies, and hyacinth.
Did you know that the royal tradition of including myrtle in the bouquets began with Queen Victoria? Prince Albert’s grandmother gifted Queen Victoria a sprig of myrtle before their wedding in 1840. Queen Victoria planted that sprig and all of the royal brides have carried a myrtle sprig from that original plant in their bouquet ever since!
Isn’t that romantic!
So, be sure to pick up some pretty white blooms.
What would a watch party be without fun party games.
People Magazine has a cute Royal Wedding Bingo.
Or you could you could play Fashion Police and rate all the hats and fascinators.
