Royal Wedding Floral Tea Party

Royal Wedding Floral Tea Party

Sometimes an occasion just calls for a tea party. And who does tea parties better than the Royals? We were inspired by the lush florals that adorned Prince George’s Chapel on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding day. Were you able to catch a glimpse? The arches were covered with white roses and plenty of foliage to create an almost ethereal look. We pared down the look so it would be appropriate for an elegant centerpiece. We used a mixture of tissue paper, crepe paper, and cardstock to get a really lovely mix of textures. Of course, we have to include our Royal Wedding mugs to complete the look!

Royal Wedding Inspired Bouquet

Royal Wedding Inspired Bouquet

Wedding season is in full swing! Yes, we’re still riding that royal wedding wave and we’re not ashamed (clearly!). The flowers had to be my favorite part of the royal wedding of Harry and Meghan. Those flower arches were absolutely dreamy outside of St. George’s Chapel. We loved the lush and overflowing greenery and the all-white color palette. Meghan’s bouquet, in contrast, was much more restrained. She held a very petite and lovely bouquet of flowers in an all-white color scheme. Though I tend to agree with the ‘more is more’ mantra, the simplicity of this bouquet is so stunning! We researched each flower in her bouquet in order to create a very similar paper replica. Did you know it’s tradition for royals to include a sprig of Myrtle in their bouquets? It represents love and started with the wedding of the eldest daughter of Prince Albert and Queen Victoria.

Royal Wedding Mood Board

Royal Wedding Mood Board-2866

Was anyone else inspired by the Royal Wedding this past weekend? Honestly, I’m sad it’s over! We won’t have another royal wedding for a long time! Although there were elements of the wedding I would have altered (not about the small bouquet trend–more is more!), I thought it was breathtaking in its entirety! To keep the fun going a little bit longer, we put together a Royal Wedding Mood Board inspired by the special day of the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Aubrey Hepburn, lush foliage and English Gardens, and a muted palette create a beautifully timeless wedding. We also put together a lookbook for the wedding, complete with everything you need to put together a royal-inspired wedding! What was your favorite part of the wedding? We want to know!

Introducing: Royal Wedding Collection

Royal wedding commemorative souvenirs

Check out our new Online Shop! 

In 2011 I boarded a plane from Copenhagen, Denmark to London to attend the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. I grew up with a very sure knowledge that I was going to marry Prince William one day but after realizing that the dream might have been a little skewed, I figured if you don’t marry royalty, at least you can attend their wedding! In preparation for the big day, I designed a line of commemorative goods to sell at a rented booth on Portobello Road and on my online shop. It was an amazing experience and one of my very first business endeavors at Lars!Royal wedding commemorative stationery set

I received such a wonderful response to that first line of royal wedding products (here!)  that I knew I had to do another in honor of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Without further ado, I introduce The Royal Wedding Collection! These royal weddings are the fairytales of our time and I wanted to help everyone remember this special occasion. This collection also kicks off the opening of our new online shop! I invite you to go explore and check back often. We have some magical things in store for you and I don’t want you to miss any of it!

I was on KSL’s Studio 5 with Brooke Walker earlier this week where I gave an exclusive sneak peek of the collection along with a demonstration on how to create paper fascinators from this tutorial.

Let’s take a look at the Royal Wedding Collection!
