Create your own centre court!

Wimbledon is upon us and will culminate with the men’s final on 10th July 2022 and, like many sporting events, it’s a great excuse to have a get together or party.  That is, of course, unless you’re all partied out after the extravagancies of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

For those who can’t get tickets but still like to go the extra mile, we’ve pulled together some amazing ideas to celebrate the occasion with friends and family alike, and help create your very own “Murray Mound” in your home.

Food and Drink

No party is complete without food, so let’s start here.  Realistically, you’re all going to be sat around watching the back and forth unfold on the TV screen, so it’s important not to have anything too fiddly to eat.  Consuming a complicated pasta dish, on your lap, whilst trying not to miss any of the action is a recipe for disaster.

Instead, embrace all things British and think traditional street party food.  We’re talking cucumber sandwiches (crusts off, of course), mini sausage rolls, cheese on sticks and anything else that falls into the all-consuming category of “finger food”.  The bonus of this approach is there isn’t loads of cooking (or washing up) to do, and people can help themselves as and when they feel like it.

Oh, and don’t forget the strawberries and cream!

When it comes to drinks, you can’t go wrong with Pimms.  It’s a beverage that has been associated with the tournament since the first Pimms bar opened at Wimbledon in 1971.  Do you really want to disagree with tradition on this one?  Just make sure you’ve got plenty of cucumber, fruit slices, mint and lemonade ready to really make a great impression.

If you’re feeling in the mood to celebrate, then you could also include some champagne or prosecco.  Alternatively, why not make up your own Wimbledon themed cocktails?  You could even turn it into a friendly competition with your guests.

Decoration

The great thing with a Wimbledon themed party is you can go as crazy (or not) as you like.  You don’t have to spend a fortune on decorations; simply stick to themes of white, yellow and green and grab a bag or two of tennis balls.  Be extra careful if you have a dog who may not understand the balls are purely for aesthetic purposes!

Alternatively, if you are a massive tennis fan, you may be tempted to go the extra mile and set up something more permanent.  If so, a tennis themed wallpaper mural is the perfect solution.  Whether you want to turn your space into a room with a view of the French Open,  Centre Court at Wimbledon or something a little more artistic, there are so many options available to make a huge impression.
