The Royal Wedding: Princess Party {Union Jack Fruit Pizza}

Last night and this morning, we had a party. The Royal Wedding: Princess Party.

It was a girls only party packed with food, games, sleepover and, of course, THE wedding.

My mom decorated the house with wedding bells and we all had our tiaras.

Last night we enjoyed dinner and dessert followed by a royal wedding game.

It was a trivia quiz. Secret prizes to win. Fun to be had.

Margaret (sister, 18) won getting 17 out of 27 question correct.

I got second getting 14/27.

Rachel (sister-in-law, 15 on Sunday) 10/27.

Eliza (sister, 14) 9/27.

The prize was to pick from a four different Royal Wedding featured magazines. The best part of the prize: Large blown up photos of William, Kate, and THE ring! 🙂

This morning, Mom got the party started with Rachel at 4am.

The rest of us sleepy heads got up at 5am.

Did you watch the wedding? Do you think we’re crazy for having a party? 🙂


  1. I love that you had a party. I wish I could have, but me, alone in the dark is not really a party, and my boys really don’t care about the wedding.

  2. How fun!!! You are SO lucky to have your family close by and I am SO jealous of your party! I am up every night til 4:30 am anyways so of course I watched the wedding. So good. Aw to be a princess!

  3. I definitely got up and watched it! My parents threw a MASSIVE party at their home in Hilton Head (we’re British!) I saw pictures and my mom went a little “wedding” crazy…centerpieces, flowers, and candles. I’ll have to show them that pizza 🙂
