Unless you’ve been locked in a basement for the last month you know that the Royal Wedding is about to happen (and if you are reading this after 1am Friday morning, it’s already happened). I don’t know about you but I was NOT really excited or interested in the Royal Wedding. Nor was I going to wake up at 1 in the morning to watch it! For the last 2 weeks every news station, and morning show has talked about it. It has been Royal Wedding overload!
Well, I have to admit that I had a change of heart when my dear friend Kaishauna told me that she was going to Tivo (record) the wedding and have an afternoon tea with her daughter!!! I thought that was such a wonderful idea, that I had to copy it. My daughter Victoria LOVES weddings. In fact, last week she was watching a show and my son asked her if she wanted to come with us somewhere. She said, “In a minute. I want to see if they get married.” Then 5 minutes later she came downstairs to let me know that they kissed on the show, twice! So, instead of thinking of myself and what I like or could care less about, I have my TiVo set to record the wedding on 2 different stations at 1 and 4am. I plan on watching it with my daughter Victoria (age 5) sometime Saturday as we have a High Tea. She LOVES princesses, weddings, and of course her favorite part…the KISS! I can remember the hoopla over Dianna’s wedding when I was a little girl. It is “magical”. This can be an awesome mother daughter experience that my daughter will always remember.
If you think this is a great idea, I have added a few pictures of some of my past teas to show you how to put together a quick Royal High Tea (or Afternoon Tea). I usually have tea parties at my house 1-2 times a year. I usually invite my girlfriends and I also invite a guest speaker to encourage us, and we have a wonderful time. Of course, a tea party with my daughter won’t involve a guest speaker. We’ll enjoy our tea while watching the taped Royal Wedding.
