I don’t know about you but I’m really looking forward to the world cup this year. There’s something about events like this that create a sense of solidarity and make people pull together. The best part though is that it is a good excuse to have friends over and watch the England games together, cue Friday and the first little soiree to get things going.

Although watching a football match with friends is a fairly informal affair, I still like to make sure that they are made welcome, not to mentioned looked after. I usually put out a few nibbles along with some refreshments and take a lot of pride in creating an attractive table setting. I think it is important to concentrate the setting around table centrepieces which not only create a focal point but also add interest to the display.

When it comes to refreshments then the appropriate wine bottle accessories are top of the list for the more refined of my friends. Closely following this is an ice bucket to keep drinks cool, especially with the current warmer weather. If England does well and makes it to the final then it will be a good time to get the champagne accessories out! The perfect solution for housing and displaying all of these items is a folding bar which is not only an attractive piece of furniture in its own right, but functional and space saving.

To finish off the effect I find a few tea lights and lotus lamps create the right level of ambient lighting which always helps in setting the mood and creating a sense of atmosphere. All that remains now is for Friday to come along and to say ‘Come on England’!
