If you're planning on throwing your own Royal Sleepover on April 28th, we suggest going all out with this adorable party favor idea dreamed up by our Royal Sleepover event designer, Sandra Downie. For each of your guests, create a "Royal Beauty Box" filled with Royal Wedding-inspired beauty products, complete with a personalized favor tag. Download the printable favor tags by clicking here, then print them onto white cardstock and cut them out. After filling in your guests' names, use double-sided tape to attach them to the top of a small gift box and tie it with red or blue grosgrain ribbon.

As for what to put inside, we suggest filling the boxes with:
*Rimmel London Glam'Eyes Day 2 Night mascara, $7.99; Glam'Eyes Quad Eyeshadow Palette, $5.75; and Moisture Renew Lipgloss SPF15, $6.50, all available at drugstores
*Bath & Body Works Royal PocketBac Hand Gel Sanitizers, $1.50, and Liplicious Lip Gloss, $8, both available at
*YBF, Your Best Friend Royal and Regal Crown Compact, $24.95, available at

And if you're going to try and get a few hours of shuteye, throw in a sleep mask. (Or, alternatively, include lots of caffeinated candy.) Download our entire step-by-step guide to throwing your own Royal Sleepover, which includes the favor tags and beauty product recommendations, and be sure to visit our Royal Sleepover page for more information.
