Styling a Pretty Royal High Tea Party - easy DIY decor, food and favor ideas to celebrate the royal wedding, mother's day or a bridal shower! by BirdsParty.com @birdsparty #royalwedding #teaparty #hightea #highteaparty #teapartyideas #britishparty

The royal wedding is in a few days, are you excited?! I sure am, mainly because the event presents us with the perfect opportunity to host a high tea party to celebrate while watching the ceremony!

I remember the first royal wedding a few years ago only too well. Not only did we shared some very British inspired party ideas to celebrate the occasion, but my scones recipe was also featured on CNN entertainment, and I'll be forever grateful to the Royal Wedding for that! 😉

In my book pink goes with pretty much anything ;) But is particularly pretty, coupled with bright yellow for a seasonal garden party inspired by flowers and butterflies ! I'm also SO over those big, elaborate dessert tables we used to style some years ago. And as much I loved doing them, I think kids birthday parties don't need to be OTT to be charming. A few touches of DIY decor is all I tend to go for these days, and this darling inspiration board is proof that less is more!

Spring Blossom Cocktail Recipe

Spring Blossom Cocktail Recipe

Mildly entertaining true story: I planned to shoot this Cherry Blossom Cocktail recipe with the beautiful cherry flowers we have in our cherry trees. But when it came to the shoot day, the blossom were all washed out by the rain! Shock horror!  But I soon spotted that our peach trees were in fact blossoming (and looked pretty similar to the cherry ones..) and so decided to Google it, and lo and behold; it turns out they are just as edible as cherry blossom. Phew!

Honey & Lemon Floral Lollipops

I first made these sugar lollipops for my kids garden party some years ago (read it here ) . Back then, I didn't have a lollipop mold or a candy thermometer, but they turned out great nonetheless! Fast forward six years, and  now that I own a proper mold, the possibilities are endless, my friends!  Like adding edible flowers and Spring bloom to make it into a more grown-up version ;)

DIY No-Sew Easy Plush Paper Flowers

These Plush Flowers, believe it or not; are  made from paper napkins and super quick to make too! They are a variation on my plush fabric flowers that I shared here . Don't they just look so cute?! AND they do not require any sewing , nor a lot of time - The idea came to me when styling our recent  Easter Garden Party . I really wanted to use pastel colored plush flowers, but did not have the time nor disposition to get out my sewing kit, and wondered if the technique would work with paper. Well, it did - Just proves again how necessity (or laziness) really is the mother of all invention! ;) Get the full step-by-step below...
