DIY Royal Wedding Party

Grab your tiaras, ladies!
That's right, the big day is tomorrow morning and I'm getting excited to celebrate with some fabulous parties!!




I think my Royal Wedding obsession may be getting to the point where it's borderline out of control...


Confession: FB photo = Will+Kat


...Anyways, I am planning to attend the most amazing city-wide watch party at the break of dawn. The Kansas City Union Station is currently hosting the world-reknown Princess Diana exhibit, so they are hosting a massive celebration!

I can't wait to see Diana's wedding dress (which Oprah tried to steal from us for tomorrow... sorryboutcha, Oprah - it's ours!).




After many post-work naps, i am also hosting a Royal Wedding party at my cute little casa! I plan on having many fun decorations, food, and fun surprises for my little shin-dig.

In case you need some last minute ideas for your own party, I thought I'd provide a helpful DIY party guide to make your princess party even more fabulous!!

  4. Sounds like fun, I dont think I'll be watching but I'm sure I'll see the highlights on the news.

    Make sure to make cucumber sandwiches! Those are the best tea sandwiches!

  6. Wow, I LOVE your ideas! My friends and I are waking up early in NYC tomorrow to watch. We are baking scones, sipping champagne, eating McVities Tea Biscuits — the works. Also, I saw Diana's Dresses several years ago in Massachusetts — best exhibit ever. You will love it!

    Love your blog!

  8. Oh man I feel pretty bad now, for being in the UK and just eating a bag of Jelly Beans for breakfast while I watched the wedding. Not even a cup of tea in sight!
