Do any of you have Royal Wedding plans? I certainly do, but nothing spectacular. I think I'll stay up tonight and watch it live. I'll bake/make a couple of things off of this site--a royal wedding-inspired menu by Epicurious.
Just last night I went into World Market to buy culinary lavender for my scones. When the clerk glanced down at my items, she said, "Ooh, are you having a royal wedding party?" All I could do was shrug, giggle and say, "Um, yes."
I feel kind of foolish about it, maybe a little girlish, too, but I just can't help it! Diana was married two days after my 7th birthday--the perfect age for a little girl to be enamored with princesses and weddings.
I remember it so vividly. We lived in San Francisco and watched it on T.V. the following morning. For months after, I played Diana. I took my Strawberry Shortcake bedspread, gathered it around my neck and walked down our stairs, pretending it was my wedding train trailing behind me. I played tennis outside pretending I was on my honeymoon. I'm not sure if she played tennis on her honeymoon, but apparently that's what I thought people did on their honeymoons. I called myself Princess Jenny.
My girls are 5 and I want them to have just as much fun with this as I did when I was a girl.
A friend of mine sent me the link to this site with lots of fun royal wedding ideas for kids. I adore these Princess Kate paper dolls with Disney princess outfits!
Do you have any royal wedding plans or are you thoroughly annoyed by all the hype?
