Will and Kate

So who got up to watch the royal wedding this morning?

I did!

I attended a royal wedding party hosted by my friend Diana, who this year has also hosted a Superbowl party and Academy Awards party. But the royal wedding party was the best.

I arrived at Diana's house at 3:30. The other guests were my friend Leah, who also happens to be Diana's neighbor, and Diana's other neighbor Erin, who brought along her darling three-week-old baby; Leah's second-grade daughter, Sadie, joined us a couple of hours later.

Dress code for the party: pj's and slippers - I wore a flannel nightgown and bathrobe.

Refreshments for the party: proper English tea brewed the proper English way, home-made scones, clotted cream, and strawberry-and-champagne jam.

Best part of the wedding: the hats! Who could have imagined so many, from wide-brimmed traditional to bizarre head ornaments of all kinds. One looked like a white coffee filter tilted sideways to mime a satellite dish antenna. And that hideous THING on the head of one of Fergie's daughters! We imagined her trying on scores of hats and then finally THAT hat and exclaiming, "That's it! That's the one!" The party ended at 6:30 with the tasteful royal balcony kiss and RAF flyover.

We all agreed it was the best royal wedding party ever.

  1. Sounds like a wonderful celebration! Without TV, I didn't even know it had taken place until it was all said--I do-and done!
