18 Nov 5 Tips for Dinner Party Success – Minus the Stress
For many hosts, dinner parties are all about fulfilling a multitude of roles. The average host has to after all be the perfect planner, cook and entertainer, and only seasoned dinner party organisers have mastered this multitasking skill.
Stress is the only thing that dinner party hosts can guarantee, and whilst you may learn from your disasters to make your next event even better, what can you do to create a great dinner party first time round – without the stress?
Simplicity = success
Unbeknown to many dinner parties aren’t the best time to deliver that ambitious recipe that the likes of Nigella, Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsay make look so easy! By keeping things simple, you can focus on being a great host throughout the evening.
Focus on your guest list
Dinner parties are more than just great food, great guests often make for an even better night so being selective with your list of attendees, particularly if you are introducing people for the very first time, is important.
From experience eight guests is the magic number, and for hosts organising an event for a mixture of colleagues, family members and friends, creating a list around an ‘anchor guest’ can ease the pressure for the host. Your anchor guest should be the life and soul, and ideally should be familiar with all your other guests so introductions between the rest of your party are taken care of.
Don’t be afraid to delegate
Delegation is the key to making any event stress-free, after all why should you do it alone?
