Royal Wedding – A proper guide to Street Parties!

April 26, 2011

I’m so excited about the Royal Wedding street party that I’ll be attending on Friday April 29th! Coohoo! I’m helping out to create a proper bona fide street party.

I’ve got to deliver all the card invitations first and then help with putting up the bunting.  My Dad was there at the last Royal Wedding in 1981 and he said there were loads of street parties going on.

Did you know that street parties started in 1919 and began as ‘Peace Teas’ to celebrate the signing of the Versailles peace treaty after World War I.  It was a bit different then because they were held as a special treat for children in those times of hardship and were quite formal sit down affairs at long tables lined up down the street.

Now it seems street parties are again becoming popular as we celebrate this time old British tradition for the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton on the 29th April. The funkiest wedding celebration of the year!

We’re hanging out the bunting and sending out the invitations from Funky Pigeon’s fab collection of Royal Wedding cards and gifts.
