As the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have now relocated to California, they’re likely eager to plan parties and host glam gatherings. While their temporary Vancouver abode offered a respite from the hustle and bustle of life in London–the Sussexes didn’t do much in the way of entertaining. Now that they’re close to Meghan’s mom Doria Ragland as well as a slew of friends — they’re bound to send out invites for a large housewarming bash in the near future.
Here’s some At Home Entertaining Inspo from Meghan Markle:
Address the Artwork
Meghan Markle got cozy with photographer Gray Malin for an interview–she has long been a fan of fine art photographs and works showcasing beach scenes. While Harry and Meghan decorate their new California crib, they will likely seek inspiration from the sunny climate and sandy shores of the Golden State. Before hosting any gathering, the couple will surely spruce up their luxe pad with colorful and enchanting artwork.
Focus on Florals
The duchess frequently showed off her constant stream of stems via Instagram. From simple white roses to lush purple peony bouquets, Meghan’s Toronto home was always stocked with an array of colorful blooms. Before gathering a group of LA celebs–Meghan will surely want the sights and scents of pretty flowers all over their massive manse.
Do Deluxe Dining
The Sussexes will want a large eating space for friends and family. Undoubtedly the couple will purchase a home with a grand dining room in order to accommodate all their new and old California crew. On her old blog the Tig, Meghan consulted interior designer Nicole Gibbons for tips on throwing a holiday party. The design blogger suggested a focus on presentation and suggested speciality cocktails and gourmet snacks on white, crystal or silver serveware.
Eat, Tray, Love
On her personal social media pages, Meghan was frequently seen preparing and enjoying gourmet cheese trays filled with salami, olives, prosciutto, fresh fruit and almonds. Harry and Meghan will want to supply snacks to their new posh posse and a cheese board with all the trimmings will be a surefire hit with the elite crowd.
For future entertaining endeavors, Meghan and Harry will surely use the warm California weather to their advantage and plan big outdoor gatherings. The couple will likely host pool parties and more than a few backyard bashes. And while the California breeze will be a centerpiece of the evening–another major player will be the cocktails on the menu at the Sussex estate. From Meghan’s favorite Pimm’s cup and wine to Prince Harry’s love of vodka and beer–the power couple will want to bring on the booze for their next star-studded soiree.
