Hey party peeps! In honor of the most talked about wedding of the year, we’ve put together a special Celebrations Circle. Will & Kate will say ‘I do’ tomorrow at Westminster Abbey and we’re so pumped, we’ve got the alarm set for 4AM to tune in! We’ve also been gobbling up all the coverage that’s been circulating the web over the past couple weeks, and as you know, nothing captures our attention more than the party itself.
Sure, we love to hear about how the couple met, where they plan to honeymoon and who the designer behind Miss Catherine Middleton’s dress is, but what really get’s us going are the inspiring party ideas we’ve seen from our favorite bloggers.
Our very own contributor Chris Nease shared an inspiring post on her blog Celebrations at Home that’s sure to help if you’re looking to plan a royal affair of your own. The look she goes for reminds us of a young, fun, English garden – the pops of pink, top hat and crown props for a photo booth and mini cakes are certainly girly, but isn’t it supposed to be about the bride?!
You know the Hostess with the Mostess has some fab ideas up her sleeve for the wedding affair of the year. The royal blue and golden yellow color scheme is both appropriate for the royal wedding and for the springtime. A big contrast to Chris’ party, Jen chose the colors in a nod to Kate’s ring. And as much as we love the custom monogrammed printables she created, we really adore the yellow blooms she used. Bold, modern, yet elegant and sophisticated, her entire table is worthy of some royal approval!
Even the kids should partake in this historic event. Though they may not be as absorbed in the wedding dress designer debate, they’re sure to be wondering what all the hullabaloo is about. Give them a bit of a history lesson and then have them craft some British bunting like this one from Patti Crafts.
The kids (and you) will love this recipe as well - it's the no-bake chocolate biscuit cake Prince Will is such a fan of. Daily Candy shared this video by a couple of lovely ladies at NYC's Tea & Sympathy restaurant.

Cheers to Will and Kate!
