Now, I may not be a royalist, but I do love planning events and after seeing everything that’s on offer for the upcoming nuptials of Prince Harry and Megan Markle, I’ve been in absolute awe. Gimmicks, party supplies, anything like that I take a fancy to! Here are eight absolutely British things you need to host your own Royal Wedding party.
Royal Wedding Gold Paper Hats
Every party needs party hats – how else are you going to be able to tell in your selfies that you’ve attended?! I love these gold paper crowns and I’m sure they’ll go down a treat at any party – whether you’re watching at home with friends or throwing a street party with your neighbours.
Available from ASOS for £4.00
Royal Wedding Invitation
Invites are a must! They’re also a great commemorative piece for frames, scrapbooks and memory boxes (tip: if you fear they won’t arrive before the party, invite everyone using social media or WhatsApp and get them printed to give out on the day for that all important Instagram post).
Available from Zazzle for £2.10
Great British Bake Off: Big Book of Baking
It doesn’t get much more patriotic than the Great British Bake Off! If you’re a dab hand at baking, then you absolutely need to whip up some favourites from the iconic show, which of course includes recipes from kitchen legends Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.
Available from Amazon for £17.99
Wedding Breakfast Blend
It’s the fuel our country runs on and a special blend was created in honour of Wills and Kate’s wedding back in 2011. It’s a splendid mix of Assam lifted by Kenyan tea – where William popped the question and is the tea to serve at your ‘do!
Available from Fortnum & Mason for £4.50
Royal Wedding Decoration Party Pack
Give your party venue some life by sprucing it up with some patriotic decor! The pack includes exclusive banners, posters, flags and banners which don the faces of the happy couple. Rule Britannia…
Available from Party Packs for £30.00
Royal Couples Novelty Masks
Your party absolutely needs some VIPs and while the real deals may be busy at the actual wedding, you can absolutely totally 100% fool people that you celebrated with HRH herself.
Available from Amazon for £7.99
Royal Wedding Luxe Biscuit Tin
If you’re no cook but want to serve some of the finest treats at your wedding party, then these iced biscuits are a must. Though they may be a little pricey, they are definitely worth serving up or maybe as a prize if you wish to raffle them off.
Available from biscuiteers for £45.00
HECK The Majestic Pork Sausages
This marriage will see two nations come together in celebration, so as representation of the UK and the US, what better than to release some limited edition sausages? These gluten and dairy free sausages reflect the transatlantic union with Meghan’s American background hinted at with American mustard, while the sweet ginger ingredient is a clear nod to the royal redhead. Barbecue anyone?
Available from Sainsbury’s for £2.00
