We’re ready so let the Royal celebrations begin!

It’s fantastic to see the whole team at The National Design Academy scuttling in this morning with bags full of treats and party food for todays Royal Fuddle. I’ve felt a little over whelmed by the Royal Wedding hype, but I must say I was up at the crack of dawn making ham and cucumber sandwiches excited for the celebrations.

The bunting is out, table-cloth laid and of course a Kate and William Union Jack flag spread across the back wall. I’m sat here writing this post with a huge urge to raid the fridge, especially the trifle which look simply divine!

Design of the Day – Bejewelled Royal Wedding inspired wallpaper

Designed by Graham & Brown specifically for the forth-coming Royal Wedding bonanza,  this wallpaper will certainly add a touch of class to any room and be a hot favourite with Royalists’. Boasting black crowns and coronets bejewelled with self-adhesive coloured diamond’s which you can stick on yourself, it’s probably one of the only “Royal Wedding” themed designs I actually like.

The paper isn’t garish or tacky like much of what’s already advertised and the design is super glamorous which would be perfect for a teen girls pad, hallway or bedroom. You also have the added bonus of a 20% off selected papers on the Graham & Brown site including, I believe, the “Crowns and Coronets” design. So it works out to cost around £35 per roll after discount.

I’m not much of a Royalist and finding the wedding a little over bearing, but this paper has a thumbs up from me for its pure glam factor. Let me know what you think!
