Get in Character with Clothing

As many people know, the costumes in Bridgerton weren’t necessarily historically accurate, which gives you creative freedom for your party attire. Dressing up is the highlight of any themed party and whether you choose a lavish, pearl-embroidered gown or a more understated outfit that you could wear again, go all out. Elegant accessories such as tiaras, rhinestone necklaces, and gloves are, of course, essential!

Decorations and Flowers

Create an opulent, romantic atmosphere with regal touches to your venue such as gold accents, ornate mirrors, and vintage lace. Flowing fabrics in rich hues can transform any space into a sumptuous palace. Illuminate the room with plenty of candles to replicate the candlelit balls of the era and embellish your space with vibrant flowers. Elegant serving trays and refined plates will elevate your tables. Top tip — for the perfect finishing touch, send out formal invitations in true Regency style!

Delightful Regency-Era Food

For an authentic Regency party, consider serving dishes reminiscent of the era such as fish, various meats, omelettes, and stewed vegetables. If you prefer lighter fare, include finger foods such as sandwiches, cheeses, canapés, cakes, and small pastries to offer a wider variety. We have a wide range of banqueting options to suit every need. They are also highly customisable, allowing you to tailor the menu to perfectly suit your event’s theme and your guests’ preferences.
