There is so much joy to be found in the planning of a party, especially in the summer… Late sunsets have me craving the opportunity to head outside to seize the longer days with friends. Sometimes it might just be a glass of wine in the garden but on other occasions – like midsummer – I find real pleasure in creating an evening to remember. From colourful candles to artful designs with wow factor, all of these products share a timeless beauty that will bring delight to your guests for years to come. From Pimlico Road to Elizabeth Street, Belgravia’s shops and boutiques will inspire you to host your next party. I’ve chosen some of my favourite finds below… Now all that remains is who to invite!

For further inspiration, join me at a tablescaping workshop at Bonadea on Tuesday 5th July at 6pm. I’ll be sharing the tips I’ve learnt over the years! Tickets available here, in aid of the Royal Marsden Charity.
