Craft & Crown, The Hospital Club

I've tried hiding under a rock, joining the circus and just plain shutting my eyes...but I simply cannot avoid the hullabaloo of the royal wedding at the moment.

So I've decided I may as well embrace it, when in Rome as they say. This was handily made a whole lot easier by today's Craft & Crown event. Billed as 'an indoor street party with a difference' it certainly made my inevitable indoctrination into the biggest faff (I mean wedding) of the decade a lot more fun and a lot less tacky.
Craft & Crown was the first event of its kind held in Covent Garden's cool Hospital Club. There was a mixture of stalls including kitsch-cool art work, vintage jewellery, rather nice cakes and chic accessories. They didn't all centre on the whole Kate and Wills thing but most had a cheeky nod to the revered couple.
Crafty classes took place throughout the day (a subversive cross-stitch was going down while I was there) which helped create a relaxed fun atmosphere in the midst of the stalls.
I held back on my purchases (despite being tempted by the Queen Mum cushion, corgi cufflinks and some very cool bunting) until I found my ideal fit - Lydia Leith's Royal Wedding Sick Bag.
So hopefully I can now hold back from the royal wedding thing after doing my bit by enjoying Craft & Crown.

Except I might have to get this bunting necklace from Tatty Devine too...oh and this tea towel from Thornback & Peel and...and...yeah who am I kidding.
