Royal Wedding street party tips from celebs

TV chef Lorraine Pascale, comedian Paul O’Grady, radio presenter Edith Bowman and newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky have come up with their top tips on throwing a Royal Wedding street party in aid of Save the Children.

Lorraine Pascale‘s Royal Wedding dinner party menu includes canapés of parmesan and poppy seed lollipops and sun-dried tomato and rosemary palmiers to go with pre-dinner drinks. She also recommends whisky and chilli prawns as a starter, peppered beef with cognac and parma-wrapped green beans as a main, and a delicious blueberry and lemon millefeuille for dessert.

Chat show host Paul O’Grady expressed how excited he was about the Royal Wedding celebrations and has even created a Royal Wedding sweepstake game for the Save the Children party pack.

He said: ‘Whether you love baking a batch of your favourite muffins, or enjoy getting dressed up in your favourite party clothes, please join me in putting on your glad rags and dancing up a storm.’

Radio 1 DJ Edith Bowman suggested some music for a lively street party, including Beyoncé’s Single Ladies, Florence & The Machine’s You Got the Love, The Wannadies’s You and Me Song and Primal Scream’s Come Together.

Newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky gave her top tip for a succesful street party too and suggestsgetting a mention from your local paper or radio station as free advertising and potential guests if you’re organising a public event!
