Dinner parties are a great way to spend time with friends. Here's how to plan and host a memorable one.
Choose a date that works for key guests. Invite a mix of people that will have fun together.
Think about dietary needs and pick an appetizer, main course, sides, dessert that impress.
Mail or email invitations 4-6 weeks out with date, time, dress code, what to bring, and RSVP date.
Buy ingredients, cook dishes ahead of time, and decorate to get ready for guests.
Greet guests warmly, keep conversation flowing, and have fun hosting your dinner party.
