How To Throw A Historically Accurate Downton Abbey Dinner Party.

What You’ll Need

– A white cloth tablecloth (nothing else will do). Make sure it hangs midway between the floor and the table.

– A wool cloth that goes underneath the formal tablecloth to keep it in place.

– white napkins you use “should be approximately twenty-four to twenty-six inches on a side.” The napkins should be folded in The Bishop’s Miter style. You can find the directions here.


For a historically accurate Downton Abbey dinner party, you would use the formal place setting. The place setting “must be balanced…[and] must be in line with the centerpiece and candlesticks.” For accuracy use a tape measurer.

In the diagram of a place setting, the dinner plate will arrive when the meal is served.


– Use either fruit or flowers (not both) for the centerpiece. If flowers, make sure they don’t have a strong scent.

– The only light source should be candlelight. Use long white candles; they should be a little taller than the candlestick. Ensure that their placement doesn’t conflict with conversation. If you need light while you are serving food, a small dim light like a side lamp is okay.


Seating arrangements are a very important part of the meal. Your guests should sit directly across from one another, and before your guests sit down the chairs should be one and a half feet out from the table so that people can sit down with ease. If you have an odd number of guests the host should sit at the head of the table, two guests on either side, and two at the end.,

– The head of the house generally sits at the head of the table.

– The guest of honor sits next to the head of the house. If he or she brings a guest, that guest sits on the other side of the head of the house.

– The other guests at the table should be arranged by their interests.

Downton Abbey S4nnThe fourth series, set in 1922, sees the return of our much loved characters in the sumptuous setting of Downton Abbey. As they face new challenges, the Crawley family and the servants who work for them remain inseparably interlinked.nnLAURA CARMICHAEL as Lady Edith, ALLEN LEECH as Tom Branson, JOANNA DAVID as Duchess of Yeovil, HUGH BONNEVILLE as Lord Grantham and MAGGIE SMITH as Violet, Dowager Countess

Before dinner you will hold a cocktail hour, which can include sherry or cocktails, but definitely not wine due to its acidity.

Make this cocktail, The Bittersweet Mr. Bates, with this recipe.

Tips For Wine

– During the meal there should be multiple kinds of wine: white wine with the fish, red wine with the meat, and champagne with dessert.

– After the meal is over, serve coffee. After coffee, serve dessert wines like sherry and port or a digestif. Ager particularly recommends orange Curaçao.

– In the most formal houses, Stanley Ager says the wine was always decanted (poured into a clear, usually glass, vessel) once it was opened. Decanting is visually appealing, prevents the wine from mixing with sediment, and thoroughly aerates the wine. Slowly (very slowly) pour the wine in order to insure it gets oxygen.



A formal dinner from the era of Downton Abby could include up to twenty-two courses. Here of 5 of them from the


Watercress Soup

Poached Salmon With Mousseline Sauce

Boeuf Bourguignon

French Green Beans to Dessert of

Raspberry Meringue Pudding


These tips are written for servants. We’re assuming you don’t have very many of those, but here’s what they’d (you’d?) do in a historically accurate scenario:

– Don’t talk to the guests, avoid eye contact.

– Walk clockwise around the table.

– Bend at the waist to serve and lower the serving plate to an appropriate height so the guest can easily serve themselves.

– Wear white gloves or hide your serving hand in a napkin so the guests do not see your skin..

And of course, be sure your friends understand that only formal attire is acceptable.

How to set a formal Table.


Utensils are placed about an inch from the edge of the table, with all placed either upon the same invisible baseline or upon the same invisible median line. Utensils in the outermost position are used first (for example, a soup spoon and a salad fork, then the dinner fork and the dinner knife). The blades of the knives are turned toward the plate. Glasses are placed an inch or so above the knives, also in the order of use: white wine, red wine, dessert wine, and water tumbler.Formal dinner

The most formal dinner is served from the kitchen. When the meal is served, in addition to the central plate (a service plate or dinner plate at supper; at luncheon, a service plate or luncheon plate) at each place there are a bread roll (generally on a bread plate, sometimes in the napkin), napkin, and flatware (knives and spoons to the right of the central plate, and forks to the left). Coffee is served in Butler Service style in demitasses, and a spoon placed on the saucer to the right of each handle. Serving dishes and utensils are not placed on the table for a formal dinner. The only exception in the West to these general rules is the protocol followed at the Spanish royal court, which was also adopted by the Austrian court, in which all flatware was placed to the right of the central plate for each diner.
At a less formal dinner, not served from the kitchen, the dessert fork and spoon can be set above the plate, fork pointing right, spoon pointing left.
