Waity Katie Waits No More: A Royal Tea Party

What could be a more appropriate way to view the Royal Wedding than with a tea party? We all approved of the dress, were charmed by the kiss, and swooned over William’s compliments to Kate at the alter. And the hats, oh the hats!! The menu was very proper: classic tea sandwiches and, taking a little help from the store, biscuits, shortbread and angel food cake. Courtney made the day especially festive by making everyone paper crowns (I, of course, got to be ‘Queen Mum’). Favors: British fixings for an afternoon spot of tea. The hope of princess life remains in all of our hearts as long as the ‘fun’ prince, Harry, is still on the market…a girl can dream.
