A wedding can transform us all – from just friends and family to the cordially invited. It transforms a girl into a bride, and her handsome beau into a bride-groom – magically, and sometimes even royally! So many girls dream of their wedding day from childhood, wishing to become a Princess Bride! After all, it’s the one day that is truly dedicated to the Bride and Groom.
Planning all the details for your royal wedding (or any regal event) starts with the theme. Nowadays, royal weddings or crown-themed events are very popular! Whether you’re planning a Mardi Gras party, a San Antonio Fiesta party, a Royal Wedding, a Super Sweet 16, a Princess Birthday Party, or a Queen’s Dinner, you’ll want to incorporate crown motifs wherever you can!
Let’s start with the decorations! Using a Crown to top a cake is a wonderful “piece de resistance” that really emphasizes the theme of your event! Adding a few fresh flowers, such as “Million Stars” gypsophilia or tiny white spray roses, to that crown can make it look like it’s floating atop your cake! Having a special toast to the happy couple, queen, or birthday girl with Crown Toasting Flutes carries the crown theme along! These pretty glasses can also be used for berries & cream, parfaits, or with floating candles!
A Crown Cake Knife and Cake Server set are not only pretty but so useful! Use them over and over again at any function with a special loaf of bread, cake or pie!
Crowns as centerpieces, filled with candles or flowers, add that regal element to your party. Crown votive candles can surround your centerpiece, or sit at each guest’s place-setting. Nothing is more elegant or romantic than faces glowing by candlelight!
Whether your dinner is large or small, place cards make your guests feel welcome and comfortable. You can add Crown Place Card Holders to your event at the place setting, or at the Escort Card Table!
Naturally, everyone loves Crown Dinnerware! Adding a Crown Salad Plate to your place setting is a regal way to convey your theme! Our crown mugs and platters can be used for food service, or as decorative elements. Fill the mugs with flowers, candy sticks, M&Ms, or use them as a gift your guests can take home!
When planning a Sweet 16 Birthday, it is such fun to give all the guests a favor! A perfect party favor is our Crown Key Chain! What 16-year-old (and new driver) wouldn't treasure this memento?
Naturally, you’ll want to have a Crown Guest Book to record all the wonderful people who attended! There’s nothing better than having guests write a favorite memory or good tiding in your guest book! A special crown pen & pen holder to match makes it perfect!
Displaying special photographs of the Queen, Birthday Girl, or special couple is a treat everyone likes to take a moment to enjoy! Using a multitude of Crown Picture Frames to show treasured memories and photos over the years is a lovely way to honor that special person!
At Crown Chic Boutique, we love nothing more than a royal event! Look to us as a resource to make your Crown Party a royal success!

But, to get to this ideal state of mind, body and spirit ... first, I must pack! Ugh! Just the thought of dragging out the old bags, and finding the necessary elements to take on my trip make me want to procrastinate! ...sigh...
NEVER! Up and at 'em! The time to travel like the QUEEN I am is now! So, I'll bring my favorite travel items from CrownChic.com! Naturally, everything has a CROWN on it. Perfect!
First, I'll need a great suitcase! My Crown Luggage in 2 sizes will work; this medium size should be ideal, and its smaller sister is my carry-on! My crown luggage is a beautiful chocolate-brown with "tiffany blue" crowns, and an embroidered crown on the frong. They have a retractable handle and wheels! The flight attendants will be green with envy! I'm thinking they'll upgrade me up to First Class....maybe even offer me an adult beverage!
I'll need a cute tote to take to the beach! The Crown Fold-Up Tote will be perfect thing. It comes in 4 different colors, so it will be easy to spot, and my silver crown is embroidered on the front. Since my Crown Tote is made of water-resilient ballistic nylon, my swim togs and water bottle will be protected. If you're like me, I always have more souvenirs to bring home than I expected. So, I'll carry it on the plane with my purse inside! HA! That still makes only TWO carry-on items!
There's nothing better than having sand between my toes on the beach! It's an instant pedicure too! So, my Crown Flip-Flops will show off those newly tanned toes and feel so good! I even like wearing them on the flight, just to get my feet ready. The pretty embellished crown on the thong will send the right message ... "The Queen is Here"!
Lastly, I'll need to keep my true identity protected, as well as my baby-blues! My Crown Sunglasses will do the trick. Classic tortise rims are decorated with crowns, and I look like the celebrity I am (or the one I think I am!) I'll stay on the DL wearing crown sunglasses and still look like Hollywood Royalty!
I'll send a postcard! Till then, travel like the Queen you are with CrownChic.com!
