Royal Wedding Viewing Party (Updated!)

I’ve been busy baking scones and getting ready for early tomorrow morning when some lady friends will be joining me to watch the wedding. I’m so touched that Price Charles will be walking Meghan down the aisle! Also I’m feeling proud to be an Episcopalian knowing our first African American Bishop will be speaking! This is all so romantic and wonderful, plus it’s making me even more excited about my own wedding! Here’s how I’m setting up for tomorrow:

I bought this fun novelty tea towel at an estate sale a few weeks ago and it’s perfect for draping over my coffee table.

The tea towel matches my vintage tea cups and saucers.

I have beautiful vintage fine English china cups and saucers but they belonged to my grandmother so I keep them for display only. I would go Hyacinth Bucket (pronounced bouquet) on anyone using them.

I made these gluten-free scones (recipe here) which will go on the bottom tier.

I’ll be placing the clotted cream and preserves in little dishes.

Lemon Elderflower Royal Wedding Cake Meghan Harry (5)

I’ll be cutting a layer of the gluten-free Elderflower and lemon wedding cake (recipe here) I made yesterday into small squares and will place them on the top tier of the server.

For the bubbly to celebrate the nuptials, I’ll be serving sparkling citrus and Elderflower water.

Update: It was a magical morning!

How do you like the little plush Corgi from The Royal Collection Trust gift shop?! Wishy loves him.

      1. The English broadcasters afterwards remarked how you don’t here that kind of sermon in England. Meredith, the American broadcaster, told them it’s very common in the US!

      2. They all looked mildly uncomfortable- some flabbergasted! From the way the media went on about the sermon/ homily, I was expecting fire and brimstone. When I watched the ceremony via youtube the day after, I thought the preaching rather mild by American standards.
