Hosting a downton abbey dinner party

Don your finest evening wear and invite your friends and family to share the exuberance, pomp and grandeur of a Downton Abbey dinner party. Our infographic is packed full of hints and tips on how the aristocracy dined during the reign of George V (and indeed some royalty and aristocrats still do). This wonderful way of life was great if you were upstairs and hard graft if you were downstairs - nevertheless, hosting your very own Downton Abbey party doesn't mean that you have to live in a mansion or have servants to get the effect.

First impressions count so it’s imperative to get your dining table looking as authentic as possible. Polish your cutlery and glasses, make sure your white table cloth is ironed and that you don’t give your guests paper napkins! Take the lead from our infographic, devise a mouthwatering menu and your guests will be wowed by your efforts. If you require additional product, please see our range of kitchen homewares!
