The Royal Wedding

i know everyone is probably sick of hearing about the wedding by now, but i'm not! i have been getting more and more excited in the last few weeks about the special day and i loved watching all the footage leading up to the wedding and the ceremony itself. My favourite part was when William first saw Kate and told her she looked beautiful, so sweet. i think her dress was perfect it was so elegant and she looked radiant. Wills looked very dapper too. i'm pleased that they were able to keep little touches that made the wedding more 'them', like Kate doing her own make-up and Will's driving them to Clarence House in his dad's Aston Martin. They both looked so happy and in love, it melted my heart.

i for one was feeling very patriotic yesterday and wouldn't stop waving my union jack flag. i even wore a mini top hat fascinator and a dress with a pattern of the Queen's Guard on it. We had a little party at my friend Miss' (thanks love) to celebrate all things British and sipped on Pimms & G+T while scoffing scones and a wedding cake that Verity made (she's so clever!). My contribution was egg mayonnaise sandwiches and Raspberry and White Chocolate cupcakes, with a union jack theme of course! i made cupcake toppers and bunting designed by the talented SJ, you can download them here if you so wish. This was my first attempt at anything hybrid. All things digital normally scare me! But it was a lot easier then i thought, i just printed them on cardstock, cut them out and did my thing. Here's a closer look at the yummyness:

So what did you get up to? Were you as excited about the wedding as i was? Did you celebrate, have a street party? i'd love to know!

Hi! Oh my! your party looks amazing and so much fun!

I saw your message on my blog about the washboard. That's CRAZY! I can't believe how much they go for on ebay. I though - she should just go to a flea market - and then i remembered you're from England. perhpas these aren't as easy to find there?

I got mine for $20 at a local tiny antique store.

have a great day!
