Im presuming that this has to do with your table stingy-ma-bob...
Are you fitting a switch or just using the switch on the socket( if it has one)
Do you have the lights?

Just the socket switch. I don't have the lights. It's just all hypothetical and this seems like a better idea.

I'm not the best with electronics, so if you don't mind being more detailed, that would be super helpful. I understand what you mean but I don't want to make any mistakes. I believe this will be wired in series?

Obviously I'd have to get some GU10 sockets first right? Any specific ones?

The forum doesn't allow step-by-step instructions to be given out.
Google 'wiring lights in parellel diagram'. This should give you a better idea of what you can do.

Okay. Will do. Will I need to add resistors? And what about the ground wire from the mains?
 
This is beyond your scope of knowledge you need to seek the services of an electrician.

This is basic wiring knowledge mate. I'm with @westward10 on this and think you should get someone in to help you with this.
Mains voltage can be dangerous.
