Royal wedding watch party time ...

I can hardly believe that the much awaited Royal Wedding is almost upon us.  We British do love a good party

We had a wedding watch party for Kate & William . We had several friends for the day to watch the wedding then we had a bbq in the garden afterwards.



This time it is much quieter after a rather hectic time work wise for myself & friends so it is just a few of us but I got the bunting out for the fireplace again.  I love the vintage feel to this bunting - the balloons are from a family birthday this week but they look good there too.


I bought this lovely Cath Kidson tea towel this week on a whim - it is patriotic & stylish.  I bought these IKEA candles on my last visit there recently because it is a fresh berry scent & a lovely red colour too so perfect.


Some eagle eyed followers will think these look familiar - I bought them at vintage fair in Ludlow some time back & shared them with you; they are perfectly royal


 A cathedral, a carriage & a castle - perfect scenes on the spoons ...


I found my box of things from the last wedding - a flag 


Some perfect spoons ...


Red, white & blue ready for cakes ...


These crowns make a regular appearance at home - they are good fun ...


These vintage candle holders are good fun & show the traditional side to life here ...


My great great grandfather served as a guard at the palaces for 22 years during the 1830's


Some little charms we use on glasses - ready & such fun


A fun cake stand ... 


The sideboard taking shape & having things swapped around ...


Red, white & blue candles in the candelabra in the conservatory ...


Our sideboard / dresser has its red, white & blue with the flags flying proudly ahead of the Royal Wedding - we will be watching,  taking in the details & just enjoying friendship & a fun event. 


If you are joining in out of curiosity or interest, enjoy the occasion as it lifts the spirits here.

Thank you for stopping by,

  1. Oh how much fun is THAT!!!!!!!
    I was up early to watch.... CDST, so at my house, everything got started at 5:30 AM. The kitty and I were the only attendees, but we had fun and enjoyed every moment. I DID drink a cup of tea from my red and white English transferware teapot, cup and saucer :^) Kitty got a bit of milk in a matching transferware fruit bowl. It was a lovely wedding, and I got such a kick out of all of the kiddos!! Being a musician, I was not too impressed with the music (all of the other royal weddings have had gorgeous music, so I was a bit disappointed :^(
    I thought about you being near enough to actually see such places, but I am too old and in too much of a rut to ever get there again.
    Blessings to you and thank you so much for sharing your lovely home and party!

  2. Hiya Jaybird, I am glad you enjoyed the wedding, it is the pomp & ceremony that is so very interesting. It was a fusion of cultures & shows how the Royal Family always move forward & change to stay relevant. I must post some follow up pictures of our bits. Have a blessed week X
