Meghan Markle and Harry chose a lemon and elderflower cake for their wedding cake, which is a major departure from tradition! British Royals, including Princess Diana and Kate and William, have typically chosen a fruitcake for their big day. Needless to say, we’re thrilled with Megan and Harry’s choice! Make your own unofficial Royal Wedding Cake thanks to Bon Appetite! Lemon Elderflower Cake with Raspberry Filling and Buttercream frosting? I DO!

Sip This:

Royal Wedding Edition

You can’t watch the Royal Wedding without a cup of tea! Fix yourself a cup of English Tea and order our new Harry and Meghan and Will and Kate mugs while you’re at it! Your morning cup of jo will become that much sweeter.

The Royal Family exhibits proper etiquette at all times, so we’re certain they believe in the art of the handwritten letter. Pick up some stationery packs featuring portraits of Harry and Meghan, William and Kate, the royal wedding procession, and some lovely fascinators and write some thoughtful notes.

Considering you’ll have to wake up in the wee hours of the morning to catch the royal wedding coverage, why not enjoy the show in a pair of comfy and cute pajamas? We love this bouquet embroidered sleep top and sleep shorts as they seem a little bit preppy a little bit feminine, and definitely fit for a princess 😉

Craft these:

Royal Wedding Edition

If you’re feeling crafty, make some crepe paper peonies! Peonies are Meghan’s favorite flower and are sure to make an appearance in her bouquet so why not make your own!

Enjoy the festivities! Remember to tag #larsmakes and @houselarsbuilt in all your royal rendezvous! We want to see how you’re celebrating!


  1. Oh yes, I was watching the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and it was soo romantic!
    I did not watch it 5 hours (this was too long) but I think I was definetely getting the most important moments.

  2. FYI: “Stationary” refers to something unmoving; “Stationery” refers to correspondence. To remember easily, if you use it about lettERs, it’s stationERy.

    Love this article! Keep ’em coming!
