Two of the most beautiful people on earth shall soon be joined in holy matrimony and, holy moly, I am excited.

This auspicious occasion is the perfect opportunity to gather some girlfriends for a fancy lady brunch, so that’s exactly what I plan to do.

Over the next few weeks, I’ll share my party planning tools and diy how-tos so you can host a royal wedding viewing party of your own.


part 1 // party planning  

what: royal wedding viewing/small blonde weddings launch party

who: six girlfrands

where: Emma’s place

when: Saturday, April 7 at 12 noon (the actual royal wedding is May 19 but I’m hosting my faux viewing party early to create content for the blog)

attire: casual tea party chic – feel free to wear white at this matrimonial celebration

colours: white, navy and gold

nibbles: dainty sandwiches, tea biscuits, sponge cake, cheese board

sips: tea, prosecco


part 2 // making party stuff 

My favourite part of planning a party is making cool decor stuff. I used to go overboard and spend a lot of money on fancy supplies but I have learned the error of my ways and now buy almost all of my supplies at the dollar store. (I mean, I invest more in supplies for projects that will serve a longer-term purpose but not for stuff that’s likely to get wrecked in the festivities).

ANYWAY, here are the projects I’m doing for this party:

And here are the things I am not making myself:

  • Tea service and tea cups (borrowed — thank you, Maureen!)
  • Serving dishes (purchased at dollar store)
  • Flowers (purchased at Safeway)
  • Tablecloths (purchased at dollar store)
  • Prosecco, tea, snacks (purchased at Safeway, liquor store)


Do you plan to watch the royal wedding on May 19?
