Tips for Hosting a Royal Wedding Party
The royal wedding is imminent, so isn’t it about time you thought about hosting a Royal Wedding Party?
Whether you host it in your street, for your friends, co-workers or family, the Mitre Hotel Hampton Court is one of the most welcoming wedding venues in Surrey so you can trust our advice.
Decorations will make your party stand out. To make your party feel truly royal, you will need to incorporate lavish touches that offer a hint of formality. Think cake stands, teapots and fine china. You’ll want your Regal themed party to feel reserved but also inviting – it’s a fine balance to master!
For drinks, we recommend the British classic – A Sloe Royale. Pour your favourite Sloe Gin over ice in a tumbler, add a splash of dry Prosecco and finish with strawberry puree or a fresh strawberry. For food, we would suggest a fine selection of summer sandwiches, classic scones with clotted cream and jam, and perhaps posher canapes such as caviar or salmon blinis.
If you opt for a retro theme, you will want to recreate the 1980s magic of Prince Charles and Diana’s wedding. Think foil decorations, Union Jack flags, cut-out corgis and royal family masks. Be sure to stock up on party poppers and go for bright colours including red, white and blue bunting.
Serve cocktails like Pimms & Champagne, Buck’s Fizz and Blue Curacao to your guests and they will feel like they have gone back in time. For food, we think you will want to go down the homemade route – that will really evoke the 1980s. Serve party rings, prawn cocktail, paste or pate sandwiches and plenty of cake.
A quintessentially British party will let you enjoy the day without as much pressure. Head to a tourist shop or browse online for British themed bunting, table decorations and banners.
For drinks, offer guests a Bramble, Pimm’s Cup, a chilled cider or a simple G&T – with such boozy tipple of offer, your guests will welcome classic British delights such as sausage rolls and traditional party food like arctic roll, chocolate eclairs and quiche.
