What to serve at a Royal Wedding party


It goes without saying that tea should be the main drink of choice at your Royal Wedding viewing party! Serve it in a teacup if you’re feeling fancy – it is a royal occasion after all!



Next up is one of the best sweet treats to come out of Britain – scones with a generous helping of jam and cream! It’s up to you whether you put the jam or the cream on first (something that is much-debated in th UK!)


Victoria sponge cake

The best British cakes are simple yet delicious – and the Victoria sponge is an absolute classic. Top tip – use Mary Berry’s Victoria sponge recipe for a truly delicious cake!



If you’ve got a little more time to prep your Royal Wedding party food, how about making a traditional English trifle with layers of sponge, custard, jelly, strawberries and cream?


Finger sandwiches

It’s probably a good idea to serve something savoury amongst all your sweet treats! Finger sandwiches are an afternoon tea favourite and you could serve a selection of popular fillings like cucumber, cheese and pickle, ham and mustard, or smoked salmon and cream cheese.


Sausage rolls

No party in Britain would be complete without a plate of sausages rolls, so make sure they’re on the menu at your Royal Wedding party.


Union Jack cake

If you really want to create a showstopper, how about making this union jack cake?


Strawberries and cream

Strawberries and cream are about as British as it gets, and they’ll go down a treat at your Royal Wedding viewing party! Serve your strawberries in a big bowl so that your guests can help themselves.



Last but not least, toast the happy couple with a glass of Pimm’s!

Pimm’s is the drink of the summer in Britain and it’s traditionally served with lemonade, mint leaves, strawberries and cucumber.
