The star of her own party-planning show, Oxygen’s sTORIbook Weddings, Spelling especially loves theme parties. So in honor of the royal nuptials, she’s going to host a “Royal Wedding Sleepover Party” for her friends and family at her house.
Here are Spelling’s plans, in her own words, for her get together. Take some of Spelling’s expert ideas or use them for inspiration for your own royal viewing party:
I can’t wait to host a viewing party for the royal wedding! Problem is it airs at 3 a.m. in California. So, to make this Must See TV Moment feasible for my guests, I decided to host a Royal Sleepover! I’m telling all my friends girls and gays and Dean – poor Dean – to come over to my house Friday morning at 1 a.m. I’m having about 10 friends/royal fanatics.
When they arrive at my house guests will be handed a pair of old fashioned button up cotton PJs in their size, slippers, and, of course, a now famous Kate Middleton mini hat (all homemade by me, of course!) to change into for the royal viewing.
I’m going to hang tons of new and vintage Union Jack flags and have cozy throws for everyone to snuggle up with on the couch.
We’ll snack on traditional English fare such as tea sandwiches, scones, mini fish & chips, mini meat pies, and, for dessert, a homemade berry trifle, of course! Beverages of tea, Pimm’s cocktails, mimosas and pints will be served.
Kate is every little girl’s modern day fairy-tale come true and we can’t wait to all see her dream unfold as it’s broadcast live for the public at 3 a.m. PT!
After is all said and done, Dean will make a big traditional English breakfast for our guests of fried eggs, sausage, bacon, fried bread, black pudding and baked beans. And, of course, some strong English breakfast tea to start – ummm… end? – their day!
Each guest will leave with a mini Mason jar filled with my homemade trifle and sealed with a Union Jack flag and mini wooden spoon to enjoy.
We are so excited! I love a ROYAL reason to throw a party.
