Scones Ideas For Your Royal Wedding Party!
Not Invited to the Wedding?
The latest royal wedding invitations have been out for a while. If yours was “lost in the mail,” here are some suggestions for hosting your own incredible wedding party!
PBS will have programing called Royal Wedding Watch from May 14-18 at 10pm to keep you up to date on what it takes to be a “royal bride in training,” what to wear, wedding protocol, traditions and on the ceremony itself. Jolly good stuff!
The wedding is taking place at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, which is where Harry was christened when he was three-months-old.
Many TV stations will start their broadcast coverage after 4am the morning of May 19th.
The ceremony will begin at 7am EST or 12pm in England.
At 1pm (8am EST) the newlyweds will ride through Windsor Town via carriage from St George's Chapel returning to Windsor Castle along the Long Walk, which will allow the public a glimpse of the bride and groom.
A reception at St George's Hall for the couple and their guests will follow the service.
Prince Charles (Daddy) will host a private evening reception for the couple, their close friends and family later that evening at Frogmore House.
Your Own Party
Host a wedding breakfast inviting others over for tea and scones!
- Suggest women wear fascinators (headband hats of a sort) and men wear Derbys.
- Serve British drinks to complement scones and other breakfast offerings (see below). Pimm’s Cup and Bramble would partner well with Cranberry Orange, Cinnamon Chip or Bacon Cheddar Scones.
- Record the ceremony so you can show it over and over to guests.
- Play “God Save the Queen” and other such British songs.
- Along with scones serve boiled eggs, smoked fish, bacon, sausages, tomatoes and berries.
- Make a game of guessing what British phrases/words mean like:
- Utterly Knackered = super tired
- Bollocks! = No way!
- Mind the Gap = Watch where you're going
- “A few sandwiches short of a picnic” = someone who lacks common sense
It'll be a "dench" of a party, a bloody good time and the talk of the town. Cheers!
