Tips For Hosting a Dinner Party
Summer is a great time to get together with friends or family for a nice dinner party. Here at Liv North Scottsdale, there is plenty of space to host a party in your apartment; so why not take advantage of your space? Hosting a successful dinner party can be gravy boatloads of fun, especially when you take the time to plan it out properly. First of all, compile a guest list that is appropriate for the size of your place, and make sure that you can accommodate guests with seating and space. If you only have a couple of table chairs, then rearrange so that the table is seated artfully in front of and around your sofa set. You can use the actual table chairs as accents, rather than main seating apparatuses. Or, if you need more space, reserve the clubhouse and hold your party there. Once youve established the guest list and set a date, you can decide on the formality of your soiree. Depending on the style (casual or formal) you are going for, you can either order custom invitations or create your own. If you would rather liv green, you can send evites instead of paper invitations. There are many environmentally friendly options to choose from. Next, you should brush up on table settings and invest in some accent pieces that will dress up your presentation. It pays to visit local craft stores to find incredible deals on chargers, napkin rings, and centerpieces. Take a peek around YouTube for napkin folding ideas! After youve done these things, and received RSVPs from all guests, you can begin the actual meal preparations. Its always a wise choice to go for non-staining types of foods. Plan to serve beverages that are colorless or pale, such as lemonade, citrus soda, or white wine. You can dress up colorless and clear with fruit twists and slices. You can even freeze colorful foods in your ice cubes, such as berries and mint leaves. Its beneficial to prepare some hors doeuvres for guests to munch on while you wait for everyone to arrive. Pay particular attention to items that can be prepared hours in advance, so you are not rushed at the last minute. When it comes to the main course, it pays to practice ahead. Dont try to make something that youve never made before. Now is the time to break out your secret recipe that everyone always begs for, because its so scrumptious. If you need ideas, visit Pinterest or AllRecipes. A dinner party is nothing without great food. Prepare everything ahead of time that you possibly can. Light a few scented candles before everyone arrives, and get the beverages on ice. That way, when guests begin to arrive, you can spend more time entertaining instead of scrambling. Gather around your table with your friends, enjoy the food, and enjoy the summer!
