Plan a last-minute royal wedding watch party


Victoria Sandwich Cake (Julia Ewan - The Washington Post)
William and Kate may have needed months to plan their big day, but you can throw together a tip-top viewing party in no time. Try these ideas for making your early-morning festivities a success.

Food with flair

Follow food editor Bonnie Benwick’s advice and impress your guests with a beautiful Victoria Sandwich Cake. In keeping with British breakfast traditions, you could also shower your friends with scones or a plate of Chocolate Poundcake Tea Sandwiches.

Decorate

Unfortunately, there isn’t enough time to completely redesign your home in full British fashion, but you can break out your red-white-and-blue trimmings. Add a splash of Union Jack to your table with these lovely (and free) royal wedding party printables from DesignEditor.

Know the schedule

Plan ahead with this guide to watching the royal wedding and our handy program chart and event timetable.
