Late on Thursday I was setting up the TiVo to record the Royal Wedding and I got a little sad. If I was in Tennessee I would have thrown a party with my friends with fancy appetizers and big hats.
Then I thought to myself...."self, let's have a little party with Lydia instead." I was 4 when Princess Di and Prince Charles got married and I still remember it. Why not make it a fun thing for Lydia? I mean, how often do you get to see a real princess being made. I sent out a couple texts and started seeing what I could pull together without having to go to the store.
The great thing about a tea party is, as long as you have a set of china and nice linens, the rest is easy.
(So lesson is, get yourself a set of china.)
Gray and yellow linens from Longrunners.
(If you use this recipe, half the salt.)
Can you believe this yellow and gray serving tray?
I think I screamed for a split second in the store when I saw it.
Dining before the big event.
Everyone looked so lovely.
The treads of the day - Large flower fascinators, plastic baubles and ruffles.
I told Collin he needed to wear the standard Morning Suit, but he must have misunderstood because he showed up in his jammies.
The party really got started when Prince Humperdink showed up. (That's what Lydia calls him.)
He is a big time flirt.
Spellbound the moment Kate appeared.
The next moment...discussing the dress.
(I loved it by the way.)
Having a daughter is so much fun.
What did you think of the wedding?
