A Royal Feast

After postponing several times (hellooooo spring time lurgies!) we finally held our royal feast.  I really wasn't getting it together with this party.  We ended up keeping it nice and simple, opting for a dessert party and just two guests.  

It was the most easy-going party everrrr.  To begin with, they each decorated a crown (I had juuuuust enough gold card hiding in my craft room).  Then they dined on ice-cream sundaes, and sipped sparkling grape juice from their goblets.  Finally we let them select some 'crown jewels' to wear and keep, before watching a Sofia movie.  

I kept decorations simple.  Some gold coin garlands (still hanging, and so pretty!) I'd made for a previous party, vintage table settings, and a couple of 'royal portraits' I whipped up a few days ago (these were so much better in my head).  With store-bought treats, this really took next to no effort, and Eleanor declared it her best party ever!  

This wasn't our first 'whip up' party, and it won't be our last.  I do love a location party (Eleanor's Mermaid party from last year, for instance), but with just a few magic touches, even the low-key ones can feel just as special.

  1. This is so lovely... and all the more awesome because you whipped it up... and she declared it her best best ever. That's winning, right there!
