All You Need To Know About Dinner Parties

We have always loved having people over to our house for dinner. There’s something genuine and exciting about getting together with friends to eat, drink, and converse.

This site/blog is all about entertaining in your home. It will cover the spectrum from simple gatherings to dinner parties. It will introduce you to great recipes with an interactive approach. Not only will it guide you in how to prepare the meal and host the event, but it will also tell you how you can make stress-free entertaining part of your lifestyle.

The menu you select doesn’t have to be exotic or the preparation complicated. Just be sure the dishes you select are choices your guests will like and that the food is prepared to the best of your ability.

Hosting a dinner party doesn’t cost as much as you might think, and by entertaining at home you can also serve a great bottle of wine for half of what it would cost in a restaurant. Bottom line – dinner parties equate to better food and better drink.

      If you are actually going to serve cocktails, and it’s a large gathering, I would choose a cocktail like a Manhattan and make up a pitcher. This way you can add about 3 ounces of the mix to a shaker and strain. You will be too busy to do something like an Old Fashion where each drink has to be prepared separately. I would have two or three choices, plus beer. As far as appetizers, I think you can go two ways: dry (pretzels, peanuts, etc. which requires little pre-party prep and little clean-up) or ask your guests to each bring an appetizer to share where you are supplying the featured appetizer such as warm brie or some type of dip in a crock pot. This involves a bit more clean-up at the end. These are just some of my ideas. Try to keep it simple enough so you have some time to enjoy your guests.
