The dress, the ring, the celebrity guest list. Oh, there’s SO much to discuss about the Royal Wedding – it’s a favourite topic in the Angel + Blume office.  When it comes to commemorative memorabilia though, it’s a jungle out there. So we’ve done the hard work for you and waded through a vast sea of products to bring you our top five Royal Wedding memorabilia. Enjoy.

Royal Wedding Cushion

First up is this commemorative cushion by Jan Constantine, queen of  patriotic design. We love this reworking of her classic union jack design. Top points also for the regal velvet and gold chair.

Royal Wedding Cupcake Toppers

Everyone knows you can’t have a party without cake.  So next on our wish list are these smart cupcake toppers from Hunkydory Home.

Royal Wedding Placecard Wooden Pegs

These wooden union jack place holders from The Contemporary Home also made it onto our list. I’m not sure I would clip them onto a wine glass, but they would be great for marking place settings at your Royal Wedding dinner party or for displaying patriotic photos.

Royal Wedding Tea Towel

You can’t get more British than Emma Bridgewater so this commemorative tea towel had to make the list. Eagle-eyed Royal watchers will notice the reference to ‘Kate’ rather than the palace-recommended ‘Catherine’. Hmm, does this mean it will keep its value? Either way, it’s a cheerful design and we like.

Royal wedding Street Party Range

And last but not least – you can’t have a street party without bunting. Our pick of the crop is this retro styled design from The Contemporary Home – the perfect way to dress up a patriotic picnic. Roll on  29th April.

We all know that girls (and the more highly developed boys amongst us!) love a cushion and there are so many brilliant options on the high street now that it almost seems silly to try and make your own. Not that I am dissuading any of you from making or commissioning your own creations but you may want to look at these little beauties first.

Graham and Green as normal, never disappoint and if you love a bit of fake fur……..
