Royally Honored Everywhere

We just returned from a near 2 week stent in the United Kingdom. We helped put on a conference and had a meeting to attend with a little vacation in between. It was somewhat sad that we’d booked our return flight the day before the royal wedding before we knew it was happening. Getting to see all the pre-wedding excitement in country made it all the harder to leave!


Many stores had signs posted or displays that could have passed for the 4th of July.  Gobs of party supplies were out for all the purported wedding parties.


You could find all kinds of memorabilia and some of it wasn’t over-the-top cheesy. Yankee candle had a royal wedding version! The Hello magazine below reads “Kate’s Last Days as a Single Girl.” Butter cookies in an engagement photo tin anyone?


Then there were restaurants: free onion rings at Burger King, champagne flavored royal ice cream at Baskin Robbins, crown cookies at the cookie store…


and one of our favorite finds in England {something I haven’t had the opportunity to eat in nearly a year}. They actually had donuts with a golden tinted glaze!


I hope you enjoyed the festivities from wherever your venue was. We watched the wedding at a British neighbor’s house. She prepared a wonderfully British luncheon for us afterwards. It was fun to make memories this way!
