With all of the excitement surrounding the royal baby, we’ve been inspired to help you host your own little royal baby shower for your little one! Your husband may not be Prince William, but that doesn’t mean that your shower can’t be just as regal as the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton’s. After all, your bun in the oven deserves to be treated like a prince or princess. Here are a few ideas for your own royal baby bash:
Send out invitations to your guests that accurately reflect the theme of your event. This Dots of Blue Baby Shower Invitation is equipped with an elegant design at the top, and the dots on the stationery look just like the dress Kate wore out of the hospital with her new son!
It wouldn’t be an English get-together without a touch of afternoon tea. Bring out the three-tier cake stand and on the bottom place tiny cucumber, tomato or cheese sandwiches your guests can snack on. Above, place scones with fruit preserves, and place pastries of choice on the top tier. Nothing says royal like finger sandwiches and baked goods.
As for the tea, consider serving Prince Charles’ favorite: London Cuppa. You could also have a variety of teas available and let your guests choose which one they would like at a self-serve station. Be sure to serve the tea in real teacups to keep it authentic.
Dress the part
On the invitations you send out to your guests, tell them to dress the part. The entire royal family loves fascinators – those elaborate hats you saw all of them sport on Kate’s wedding day. Tell your friends and family to rock their best fascinator or hat and give a special price for the most royal-worthy hat.
Play a royal game
Whether it’s trivia about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, or a game coming up with the best royal name, getting your guests together for a fun game is a great way to keep everyone engaged and having fun.
