Royal Wedding Viewing Party Goodies and Ideas!

Kate and William’s big day is nearly here – but there’s still time to fly the flag. Just follow our simple ideas to create a festive table for family and friends at home – or neighbors in the street (and, three cheers, it won’t break the bank)

Go for a classic red, white and blue color scheme. A cheap cotton fabric will unite mismatched tables, while a fun wallpaper makes a good runner for place settings. And party boxes are a practical solution to feeding large numbers – children love having their own personalized box

Turn cheap to chic by covering supermarket own-label bottles with a cutout from wrapping paper.  If you like baking, make this your triumphant moment. Simple shapes can be transformed with icing: triangles become bunting, rectangles are flags…it’s all in the decoration

With a nod to nostalgia, create a relaxed theme that makes a virtue out of mixing, not matching. Anything goes, from big, blousy florals to tiny patterns

Dress up your cupcakes with patterned paper cases and pretty floral toppers – place them on your just-iced confections

Plenty of teapots in all shapes and sizes adds to the charm – and will help to keep the cuppas coming so no one goes short
Decorate plain paper plates with cutouts from patchwork wrapping paper glued into place. Ribbon give it a wow factor, too
