Royal Wedding: Can't Get to London? Host a Royal Party! Here's How!

Who's ready for a royal wedding weekend? We are. We're so ready we are bags packed, wheels up and off to London Town. Ahhh! Pinch us.

Dress the party and deck the halls with Meghan's all-time favorite flowers, sure to be used on the wedding day: peonies! In pale blush pinks and whites, which she's featured all over Instagram many times. 

Fit for a princess and her prince – a Royal Tea Party, the ultimate British gathering – and perfect for day-ahead prep to pull out and serve bright and early Saturday morning.

Set the table with all the pretty, from teacups and glassware in blush bridal hues to...

Blush and gold silverware. Are you obsessed? We are.

Not only is tea a party favorite served hot, but once steeped and cooled, it's the perfect royal tea cocktail, served with the other ultimate British sip: gin. Get the recipe!

Tasting platters of mini tea sandwich bites like tiny ham and cheese biscuits with spicy pepper jam, and cucumber cream cheese open-face tea sandwiches make perfect, make-ahead tastes.

When making delicate, open-face tea sandwiches in advance, cover them with a damp paper towel to keep from drying out in the fridge.

Petite, pretty sweets round out the tea menu – from macarons to teeny tiny chocolates – they are the sweet ending to a royal wedding celebration. Cheers!
