Today I’m rounding up some of my favorite British-themed parties to share some Royal Wedding Viewing Party inspiration with you. Some of these are London Is Calling Parties, or Jubilee Street Parties, or just British-flavored birthday parties. No matter the exact theme, they all have lovely elements that you could incorporate in your Royal Wedding Viewing Party.
If you want to throw a London-style street party, look no further than this actual London street party. I love the tablecloth, I love the abundance of the table, and I love all the traditional English dessert options. They must have baked for days!
This party is high tea inspired and you’ll have to check back with Kit’s blog for her recipes. What I love about this party is that while the food is very special, and the setting is lovely, it’s really very simple. You could copy this party and not feel overwhelmed. Also … she’s got free royal wedding bingo cards. Making some of my own was on my to-do list, and now I can check that off! Woo-hoo!
My royal wedding watch party is going Union Jack-lite, but if you want to hit the red, white and blue hard, here’s how to do it.
It’s British, it’s brunch, it’s delightful. Look for flowers in tea tins and dessert that are full of charm. The cakepops! The shortbread cookies! The (I think) chocolate covered Oreos with red heart centers. This party is a must-see!
This styled tea party in the English countryside has a cool, modern vibe, while not losing a bit of charm. You can see that the dessert table is actually quite small, which just goes to show that a few carefully chosen desserts that are high on style can go a long way.
When you click this link, just keep scrolling past the wedding dresses and you’ll finally come to this sweet cake table, a tea table, and dining table ideas.
There aren’t many photos of this party, but the desserts are on point for any London-themed party.
This party is waaay more elaborate than anything I can imagine us styling for a royal wedding watch party. But, it’s well worth a look to see if there’s some little detail you could pull out for your watch party. Maybe it’s just the red, white and blue balloons. Maybe it’s the fondant work. Or maybe it’s just the generous use of satin ribbon.
This party is fun because it manages to combine modern and traditional elements, plus the color scheme is yellow, white and blue instead of the red we see so often. I love the monochromatic flowers in the tea cups perched on candlesticks. Jenn also has free printables that are, of course, lovely.
This table is a great example of a symmetrical dessert table. Taller items in the back with the tallest item in the middle. And I love all the silver, but especially the navy ribbon bringing attention to the cupcakes. So pretty.
This photo shoot is crazy detailed and the starring wedding dress is a total hoot. I wish the dessert table pics were a little bigger, but all is forgiven because this party is also so funny. Pop over for posh language lessons — great ideas to borrow for your food labels.
