Actress and Goop founder Gwyneth Paltrow offered a rare glimpse into her property in The Hamptons over the weekend, hosting a star-studded garden party for 47 guests including Jerry Seinfeld, Jimmy Fallon, Jodie Comer and members of her own family, Blythe Danner and Apple Martin. 

The ‘Italy in Amagansett’-themed event, which was held in collaboration with Gucci, celebrated the launch of Goop’s new ‘Youth Boost Peptide Serum’ and the Italian fashion house’s summer collection.

The New York Times reports that the menu, featuring artichoke salad, risotto and baked cod, was designed by chef Mattia Agazzi of Michelin-starred restaurant Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura. Dishes were served on $300 ‘Herbarium’ dinner plates.

At the end of the party, guests were invited to take home fresh produce from nearby Amber Waves Farm.

Gwyneth Garden Party-inspired menu

Gwyneth has made headlines for many reasons over the years (remember the vagina-scented candle?) but her sense of style – whether it be showcased by a perfectly organised pantry, a chic furniture range for CB2, or, in this case, entertaining guests at a spectacular soiree – is well documented.

So, when we laid eyes on the glorious garden party tablescape, we knew we had to find a way to recreate the look. Swipe through to see the amazing outdoor setting as well as the A-listers in attendance.

How to create a garden party tablescape like Gwyneth Paltrow


Gucci ‘Herbarium’ porcelain dinner plates (set of 2), Matches Fashion


While the Gucci plates at Gwyneth’s party were green, we also love the Herbarium porcelain plates in yellow for a zesty pop of colour.

If you’ve ever tried to keep candles lit outdoors, you’ll know it can be challenge. Gwyneth’s table was set up with a series of these clever candle holders which come with a glass hurricane to keep the wind at bay.

Fresh produce makes a wonderful waste-free party favour. While Amber Waves Farm’s fruit and veg was displayed in a vintage cart, you can achieve the look on a smaller scale by loading a rattan basket with fresh produce.

Elevate a standard garden party by taking indoor chairs outside. These oak dining chairs are almost identical to the ones that surrounded Gwyneth’s table.


Alex Liddy ‘Arlo’ 40-piece cutlery set, $229.99


Add bling to the table with good quality, stainless steel cutlery. This set features a minimalist square-edge handle and includes 8x table forks, 8x table knives, 8x dessert spoons, 8x teaspoons and 8x steak knives. Comes in an elegant gift box.


Traditional stitch napkin in white, $59.95


Finally, add softness with timeless cotton napkins. This set features a forest green border that will create a connection between your tablescape and a lush, green setting.
