If you love the festivities of a royal wedding, you’re sure to be on a countdown for the impending nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle this weekend. With a string of Union Jack flags and royal merchandise emerging, it’s time to get royally ready to celebrate. Here at Spicers, we have gathered some regal ideas to toast the couple in style.
British-themed afternoon tea
What’s more British than a decadent afternoon tea? Celebrate the couple over a traditional spread of cucumber sandwiches, scones, Victoria sponge cake and sparkling champagne. Try inviting your guests to dress up in their royalist outfit and decorate the house with patriotic napkins, cups, confetti and balloons for an extra special touch.
A royal street party
You don’t need to be invited to St George’s Chapel to enjoy the communal celebrations of the special day. Since the tradition started in 1919, many communities throw street parties in their local area to celebrate. They consist of traditional food, drinks and party games. If you don’t want to host your own, you can always go along to the large parties in London and soak up the patriotic atmosphere!
With the recent arrival of the summer weather, a BBQ in the garden could be the perfect way to celebrate the happy couple. You can play some traditional British garden games such as rounders or cricket and get everybody involved. Try an American twist on your BBQ food with a classic hotdog and beef brisket to honour Meghan Markle.
If you fancy a quiet celebration this weekend, why not tune in and watch the wedding live? There will be coverage on many channels all day long, so you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home!
