We love special occasions here at G & G, not only because we get to experiment with different styles and looks but also because we love a party and the Royal Wedding is a great excuse to bring people together!
We've noticed restaurants and hotels across the country are gearing up for the wedding, hosting afternoon teas and special menus, so we thought we would help out and put some ideas together!
Are you putting together a special menu? We love Royal Worcester, not just because it is a truly iconic British Bone China brand but also because we are in love with their new Tranquillity collection. The delicate gold bird and branch design would complement any royal feast.
Available in a modern coupe or classic rim shape. Get in touch or shop Tranquillity here.
If patterns aren't your thing or you are looking for something simple and classic for your special menu then we would suggest going with something like Narumi.
Our Narumi brand oozes simple sophistication. It's Bone China, so you can rely on it for quality but it also offers a variety of shapes and styles that suit a variety of food. From its simple Cool Coupe shape, that allows your food to take centre stage but also gives you plenty of room to get really creative or their ever-popular Esprit range, which features a textured edge that frames food perfectly. Browse our whole Narumi collections here.
We particularly love Narumi's new Forest plate. It ticks all the boxes - it's simple, its classic but it also features a unique matt swirl design on the edge, adding a modern twist. Shop here.
Afternoon Tea is so very British. We can't think of a better way to celebrate the Royal Wedding than with beautiful pastries and a cup of tea (and glass of champers, of course!)
Afternoon Tea is part of our British heritage and culture and it is now a huge part of the hospitality industry. It draws people in who want to celebrate an occasion but it is also a great tourist attraction.
If you are hosting a special Royal Afternoon Tea then you have to make it different to your usual Afternoon Tea service. Not only does the food have to be extra special but so does how you serve it.
Of course, Bone China is always the go-to for Afternoon Tea because of its quality and sophisticated look. Check out our Afternoon Tea shop here.
Why not go for something a little different? We love this Bronze stand. Not only does the colour stand out but so does the shape - be brave and move away from the traditional round shape. Shop here.
