How to Throw a Thrilling Downton Abbey Viewing Party

Since Downton Abbey is sadly coming to an end March 6, we thought we would put together a viewing party guide for the last episode that your friends will never forget.


Get out your candlesticks and China for a more upscale pre-viewing dinner party.  For an elegant look- the more candles the better.

For a more casual affair, decorate minimally, but use dessert       platters and other nice trays and plates for a refined look.


You can even make place cards for your guests with "Lady" or "Lord" as their titles.


Casual: Make tea sandwiches and other appetizers, as well as a few desserts.

This Smoked Salmon Pinwheel is surprisingly easy. A great Cucumber tea sandwich recipe can be found hereGoat Cheese and Fig Sandwiches on Raisin Bread also sound amazing!
Formal: Start with a soup and salad, then prepare a main course with a side dish.

Salad: Beet Salad with Goat Cheese is a great choice.

Soup: Perhaps a Cream of Barley soup.

Main Course: Roast Chicken is always delicious.

Side Dishes: Creamed Carrots will round out the meal nicely.

Dessert: You must make this Chocolate Biscuit Cake.  It's Prince William's favorite!


Alcoholic: Make Pimm's Cup in a punch bowl. This will be easy for guests to serve themselves and
it's a classic English drink.

Non-Alcoholic: Serve Downton Abbey tea, available here.


Play Downton Abbey Bingo! Or play some Downton Abbey Trivia!
