Cocktails in Honor of Kate and Wills

The countdown is on with less than 4 weeks to go until the Wedding of the Century. (No pressure Kate...) Since so many people are gathering together to watch it, I thought it would be fun to come up with items for a cocktail party in honor of the young royals.


Cocktails have to be Pimms Cup RECIPE

And Gin Gimlets RECIPE

Cocktail NAPKINS in a plaid of course!

For party favors, each guest will get a wrapped copy of this BOOK

Hors d'ouevres from British Celeb Chef JAMIE OLIVER

Grilled Rosemary Flat Bread RECIPE

Hush Puppies RECIPE

Marinated Olives RECIPE

Smoked Salmon Rolls RECIPE

Baby Artichoke Bruschette RECIPE

Assorted cheeses, crackers and FIG JAM

And some sweet Chocolate Biscuits to top off the evening with a round of champagne to toast the couple  RECIPE 



  1. What fun! I've been invited to a "royal breakfast" to watch the wedding broadcast. The first 12 to arrive get a tiara! The only problem is the event starts at 3:30AM!

  2. Can I be invited? I promise to bring scones and jam! Seriouly love those plaid coctail napkins...how fitting. I would have to totally surrender myself to the rosemary flatbread, and only eat olives by the dozens..so have plenty on hand. Then I would have to down a few Gimlets in honor of my grandparents and their drink du jour....sounds like a grand party to me...count me in!

  3. Why don't I live closer to you?!!! I would join you in a second for a fete like this.

    Here's to bride & groom!
    xo Elizabeth

  4. I would bring pairs of illustrated wellies and bumbershoots for the party place settings or tiny notes to attach to the books! What a sweet showering of items to create a lovely engagement cocktail!

  5. I am so excited for the couple! So looking forward to the day! Enjoy the fabulous day, Kellie xx

  6. And to think they didn't hire you to plan their party! Love the Pimm's cup - the very first "adult drink" I ever tasted thanks to a grumpy English governess (long story!)
