THE event of the year!

Sadly, I won't be making it to London in time for THE biggest wedding of the year, even though I had the perfect outfit planned for the occasion. My invitation was also lost in the mail, but really, these things happen, so I'm not that upset.

Instead of staying home and feeling sad that I'm not at the wedding of the year, rubbing elbows with the Beckham family, and asking Victoria just how many nannies she employees, I will be at THE biggest event of the season, right here in beautiful Ottawa.


I was invited to attend and cover the Royal ParTea, a fashion fundraiser for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation, with Jeanne Beker, Canada's very own Queen of Fashion herself. She's a TV personality, a journalist, an author, a jet setter, and pretty much as close to Canadian royalty as you can get. I'll be writing all about this event for Ottawa At Home Magazine, too, complete with pictures, so stay tuned for that!

The event is a Royal Wedding preview, taking place in the elegant 4th floor gallery of the stunning Museum of Nature tomorrow afternoon. Tickets for this event are $250 a person, and with only 125 invitations, you can rest assured it will be one elegant event.


The Royal ParTea will also be hosted by CTV's Carol Ann Meehan, and will feature an exciting fashion show with Kate Middleton inspired fashions from St. Laurent Centre. Adding to the pomp and circumstance: the Governor General's footguards will also be front and centre at the party.


We will be treated to champagne, taste treats, and a delicious high tea service by Thyme and Again. Of course, no event if complete without a fabulous goodie bag and this unique gift bag is filled with full-sized products from Chanel, Pandora, Dior, Crabtree & Evelyn, and more.


As we're sipping our tea, Jeanne Beker will be giving us the inside scoop on the Royal Wedding before she leaves for London for the real thing. She's been travelling back and forth, visiting with all the suppliers of the Royal Wedding, and I can't wait to find out all the fun details of Kate and Will's big day!

There are still a few tickets left for this event, and if you'd like to support this amazing cause, you can purchase your tickets here.


Hope to see you there. And if you can't make it, I'll give you all the details later, anyway!
