Royal Wedding Tea Party!!

I was glued to the television all day today watching the entire Royal wedding ceremony!! Everything was so beautiful.. Catherine's Wedding dress..the extraordinary and unique hats adorned by the guests..and the kiss!!! 

Let's celebrate with royal wedding in style with royal high tea!! 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Courtesy: Podium

The theme in this one is Royal Wedding Sapphire Afternoon tea.. inspired by Catherine's engagement ring!! I love the shortbread wedding cake and the passion fruit hearts!!!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Courtesy: Flemings-Mayflower

How about some Royal Bejeweled Afternoon Tea with glittering array of petit fours, tarts,biscuits, truffles, jeweled lavender cupcakes with Royal blend tea!!

                                                                                                                                                                                         Courtesy: Royalhotelblog

It is equally important to learn the etiquette for the Afternoon High tea..Want to learn the       'correct' way to hold the tea cup or as to how to stir the tea cup or the placement of the tea pot??? Here's a lovely site which will brief you up on the tea party etiquettes!!

                                                                                                                                                                                         Courtesy. Britishlarder

To celebrate this occasion Twinings has developed a wonderful Royal Wedding Blend of White Earl Grey with rose petals.  

                                                                                                                                                                                          Courtesy. Britishlarder

Isn't this table top beautiful!!! The afternoon tea set is from Pipstudio... You can find the recipes for the Victoria sponge and Rhubarb Cupcakes with White Chocolate Frosting on Maddy's blog BritishLarder.

So now we have the occasion for celebration plus its a long weekend... we also have the tabletop inspirations, recipes, choice of tea and have acquired the tea party etiquettes as well..The weather also looks good..

Let's have a royal tea party!!!!
