This is the perfect time to hold a seasonal summer dinner party, but hosting your own party can cause a lot of stress. Make sure all of your bases are covered with these tips!
Eating by Candlelight – If you want to introduce candles into your party decor, keep them unscented. The focus should be on the delicious food, not the coconut vanilla scent of your pillar candles, as delicious as it is!
Keep Them Short – Centerpieces should be small and short so that guests have the ability to see each other over the table. You can always showcase taller arrangements on separate tables.
All You Can Eat – Buffet-style dinner parties are all the rage. Why? Everyone gets just what they want, and it’s easy to do!
In the Know – Make sure you check to see if your guests have any serious dietary restrictions.
Savory Seasonals – Try to base your menu off what is in season. The ingredients will be at their most flavorful, and the least expensive.
