How to host a Wimbledon final party at home

Strawberries and cream, pristine whites and the thwack of a tennis ball. It can only mean one thing – Wimbledon is here. Yes, British summers wouldn’t be the same without the centre court thrills and spills of the SW19 tennis championships. If you’re not lucky enough to get your hands on a couple of tickets, fret not. Here’s how to host a Wimbledon final from the comfort of your luxury kitchen design. Because let’s face it, beautiful bespoke kitchens are the perfect spot for hosting every great celebration.

Time to enjoy all the tennis action from your roundhouse kitchen without breaking into a sweat. Game, set and match!

Serve Wimbledon-style nibbles

Whatever the weather, and whoever wins, it’s easy to capture the essence of Wimbledon in your kitchen design by serving up Wimbledon-style snacks. Treat guests to heaps of sweet, plump strawberries (packed with Vitamin C and antioxidants) piled high with generous splodges of thick cream. Why not rustle up an Eton mess, buttery scones, dainty sandwiches and iced biscuits that look like tennis balls. (Or head to the nearest supermarket if time isn’t on your side). Serve in pretty glass bowls, pastel coloured china and finish off with a pot of piping hot tea. Your designer kitchen has never looked so quintessentially British. Champion stuff.

Prepare summery cocktails

All this entertaining is thirsty work. So before the action begins, whip up some fruity cocktails in your luxury kitchen room. Keep it simple with jugs of Pimm’s: just add lemonade, sparkling wine and handfuls of ice cubes for a Wimbledon spritz to keep guests refreshed. Garnish with cucumber slices, halved strawberries and mint sprigs for the ultimate summer cooler. Don’t forget non-alcoholic sips too. Stock up on elderflower cordial, botanical tonic waters and zesty lemonade with purple and green straws for a nod to the Wimbledon palette. Upmarket kitchens designs will be match ready….

Set up screens and seating

Get prepped for the finals by setting up screens in bespoke kitchens. You may already have a TV in large kitchen dining room ideas, where you can gather around a modern kitchen island with seating. If not, continue the party in your living space and use a bar cart to transport drinks and nibbles. For something a little more adventurous – and if the weather is good – set up an outdoor cinema with a projector and large screen. Make sure you have enough seating – beanbags, garden benches and even camping chairs if you’re short. The perfect way to spend a summer afternoon with loved ones.

Decorate in purple and green

Channel a Wimbledon mood in bespoke luxury kitchens with tennis themed decorations. Use the classic Wimbledon colours of green and purple across tablecloths, napkins, balloons and bunting. Dress up your modern kitchen island with tasteful sporty trimmings and encourage guests to wear their best Wimbledon whites.

Relax with your guests

The best hosts make their guests feel super relaxed. So instead of watching and waiting to tidy away glasses and plates, be laid-back about the clean-up. Take tumblers, flutes and hiballs out of bespoke cabinets so everyone can help themselves to fresh glasses. Make sure you have a good stock so you don’t need to run the dishwasher and ruin the ambience. And if you’re planning to take the party outdoors, use melamine drinkware and plates so there won’t be any risk of broken glass. Then, simply clear dirty dishes as you go along and pile in a larder room or corner of your luxury kitchen room to deal with later. Above all else, have fun in your beautiful kitchen design.
