Summer of sport is well and truly here, which for those of us who aren’t athletically gifted means… lots of parties! And the social highlight of so many sporting events has got to be a Wimbledon party. The best food, the best drinks, the best weather (fingers crossed) – we’re ready to make this a tournament to remember!

Decorations Aplenty

Wimbledon is one of those occasions where union jack decorations are a must, so deck the halls with bunting, streamers and anything red, white and blue!

You can even make your own bunting by cutting red, white and blue triangles of fabric and securing them to a length of ribbon with VELCRO® Brand Stick On For Fabrics.

Yummy Food

Strawberries and cream are the backbone of Wimbledon and it wouldn’t be a tennis party without them. Serve them in ice cream tubs to make sharing easy.

Take your themed food one step further with tennis ball biscuits. Just take some round shortbread biscuits and add two curved lines of white  icing. So simple and so effective.

Pimm’s, Pimm’s & Pimm’s

It’s an unwritten rule of any Wimbledon party that Pimm’s is essential. Get the perfect mix by adding 3 parts lemonade to 1 part Pimm’s, garnished with slices of orange, lemon, cucumber, strawberries and sprigs of mint. Delicious.

So what time should we be there? Say, Tennish?

Happy Wimbledon, love VELCRO® Brand x
