When I designed my Royal Wedding Printables, I had no idea what a fun and rewarding experience sharing them would be. As a result, I've connected with so many of you and discovered new blogs. Thank you to all of the bloggers who have mentioned Design Editor, I've been so flattered. Extra thanks to my top referrers: The Washington Post, Design Mom, How About Orange and Living Locurto.
Wedding fever also took my designs onto TV. Jillian from Catch My Party incorporated my party ideas on a segment for KTLA in Los Angeles and Marjorie from The Fantail did the same on TVNZ in New Zealand. I even got an email about a possible 20/20 segment, but it never made it to air. All very exciting!
Below are some of the photos I received from readers. I can't tell you how rewarding it is to see how you all took my work and put your own spin on things. Your creativity is so inspiring. Thank you so much for taking the time to send them to me. I absolutely love it. I so wish Will and Kate could see how we celebrated!
Beth's corgi Zephyr getting into the spirit in Indianapolis. Very regal.
Andy at Memoirs of the Shoe Obsessed created a really lovely red and blue tablescape. Love the flags on the straws.
Paula in Ohio used the hang tags on small boxes of petit fours given as take-home favors. The longer tags were used on the cups for the champagne toast after the ceremony.
Sweet Little Bakes in London even thought of adding banners to the fly-by planes!
Maggie at The Craft Family celebrated at school. Ladies, you looked brilliant in your hats!
Jeanie at The Pastry Tip in St. Louis went all out with her sweets! Such clever work on the teapot and cookies. Love the English Garden setting too!
Rachel in New Zealand says that the wedding was at 10 p.m. her time and it sounds like they made quite a night out of it: "We wore a pretty frock, hat or something in our hair and two of the girls wore bridesmaids dresses that they had worn at friends weddings years ago. It was so much fun."
Lisa from Read Lisa Long threw a party for some fellow moms and their 3-year-olds. She got super creative and used the crown silhouette to do freezer paper stencils on bags and t-shirts for favors. Bravo!
I love how Shannon from Sassy Soirees lined her teacups. Looks like a fun girlie lunch!
Lina from Linaloo is a Brit living in Montreal who celebrated with this twist on the bunting. Love how she alternated the designs and sewed them together.
Alyson threw a Royal Wedding Princess Party that was too cute for words. The little ones in their crowns! Ah! I love what she did with the place settings. Each girl had a vintage melamine tea cup with a paper halo tiara, a folder with their embossed initial containing a Princess Kate paper doll inside, lip gloss and stickers. Lucky ladies!
Danyelle at Life is a Party added a little bling to the occasion!
The Nic Nac Noodle in New Zealand left no stone unturned when it came to the treats of the day, serving traditional foods. Louise Cake: Named after Princess Louise's wedding cake, daughter of Queen Victoria. Sponge Roll is a rolled sponge cake with jam filling, a very English dessert cake first recorded in 1615. Licorice Allsorts was first produced in Sheffield, England by the Bassett Company in 1899.
Fee at Oh Gorgeous Baby in Australia celebrated with a high tea with her 5-year-old daughter.
Gail at Foggy Tales in New York City celebrated at work. One of her co-workers put her hair up and stuck the decorations in her hair for a celebratory pub crawl!
Michelle entered this photo in a Teavana contest. Hope she wins!
Thanks again for all of your kind words and enthusiasm! This was so much fun. If you had a viewing party you'd like to share, please add it on a comment!
