Royal Wedding Watching Party

With all the hype surrounding the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton in April, it's time to start planning a Royal Wedding Watching Party! What better way to view the wedding? Invite your closest friends, put on a fancy hat, serve scones and tea and watch the beloved couple tie the knot on April 29th. Here are a few ideas to inspire your Royal Wedding Watching Party:

Start with a regal invitation, like this one with gold gilded edges by Martha Stewart. Mimic the official Royal Wedding invitation by choosing a crown motif. Begin your invitation with, "The Lord Chamberlain is Commanded by...", just as the Royal Invitation states.

Decorate with bunting that displays the Union Jack -- Etsy shop Loopsies

Serve Eton Mess to guests. Prince William attended Eton College, so a dessert that makes reference is perfect -- BBC Good Food

Being a traditional English breakfast treat, scones are a must-have at the Royal Wedding Watching Party -- Pinterest

Serve an assortment of teas in pretty teapots and teacups. Be sure to sip, not slurp! -- Martha Stewart

Place vases of English garden roses with fancy feathered accents in the party space -- The Knot

You'll want to be as stylish as Kate Middleton, so wear a gorgeous hat or fascinator. Of course, you'll be sure to wear a replica of her engagement ring to the party -- HSN
