Editor’s Pick: the insiders’ must-haves



From extravagant street parties to intimate garden gatherings, these royal-wedding essentials will make it a bash to remember

1. Meghan is said to be partial to a glass of rosé, so, as a light aperitif, serve guests from a magnum of ice-cold Provencal Miraval, from £40.

2. These nibbles, £20, celebrate transatlantic flavours: topped with Scottish salmon, Wensleydale cheese and New York deli pastrami.

3. A pretty runner like this one, from £29.50, brightens up trestle tables at a street party.

4. No get-together is complete without cake and, for royal celebrations, it has to be light and fluffy Victoria sponge, from £22.

5. Keep guests cool: combine strawberries, elderflower cordial, soda water, citrus and plenty of ice in this stylish ombré jug, from £12.50.

6. Marksman’s summery English blanc de blancs, from £26, is the perfect fizz to toast the royal couple with.

7. Serve sweet treats on pretty pastel plates. This set, £29.50, is made from fine china with delicate gold edging.

8. A beautiful platter of seafood is always popular. Ours, from £15, includes Orkney crab pâté, Madagascan tiger prawns and smoked mackerel.

9. Fresh flowers make any table feel special. Try this glorious selection of roses, germini and stocks, £30.
