Royal Wedding Tea Party Photos

I didn't get up in the middle of the night last Friday to watch the highly anticipated nuptials of Great Britain's Prince William and Kate Middleton. But I did attend a Royal Wedding Tea Party later that evening where we watched a PVR recording of the ceremony and chowed down on british/royal/tea party themed eats. Loved the fashion, loved the afterparty in Hyde Park, loved the hot siblings (hello Harry and Pippa), and all the gossip and fun facts. But like many of these events, I was actually more interested in the food than the ceremony....
Getting in the spirit with tiaras and stiff upper lips.
Custom sugar cookies for the occasion.
Ready to toast the newlyweds.
Tiara and scones. Together at last.

Delicious scones baked in an elementary school staff kitchen.

Royal Fruit Skewers

Crustless Tea Sandwiches (Cucumber and Cream Cheese/ Eggplant and Spinach)
English Trifle. Heavenly layers of Strawberries, Ladyfingers, Shortbread, Whipped Cream and Lemon Curd. 
Photos are courtesy of the immensely talented Jenna Haylock...not only does she take gorgeous photos but she makes a mouth-watering English Trifle.
