If you’ve decided to skip the queues and watch from the comfort of your own home this year, here’s a few ideas to have your Wimbledon Party rivaling the excitement of Murray Mound.
Serve up refreshments in style
Never mind Centre Court – make our glass drinks dispenser a centre piece by filling it with Pimm’s, mint and Summer berries, it can hold enough to fill 20 of our Elgin tumblers, so it’s perfect for keeping the drinks flowing. Simply spread our Vintage Washed Linen Runner or table cloth across your table and lay out plates, utensils and chic, striped napkins, so guests can help themselves.
Shake up traditional strawberries
Those tense break points require plenty of snacks to keep anxiety at bay. And, of course, with the event in question, there’s simply no better option than strawberry-based fare. Turn your hand to former head-chef at River Cottage, Tim Maddams’, innovative take on strawberries and cream – this time with added shortbread and a delicious infusion of geranium and Limoncello, as served at our Summer Entertaining Party. Satisfy savoury cravings by bringing around a tray of toasties, topped with avocado, strawberries and goat’s cheese, drizzled generously with flavoursome olive oil.

Set up a designated zone for enjoying the match
Keep everyone happy by scattering our Henley Scatter Cushions on the floor around your sofas – great for children to sit on so everyone can see the screen. Want to add a more adventurous element? Head outside and revel in the Summery atmosphere by watching the match in your garden with a projector and a bed sheet.
