Dinner Party Ideas: Inspiration for a Fun Get-Together
Throw an unforgettable dinner party, with these pro tips.
Dinner parties, as any host knows, are about so much more than the menu (though that’s important, too). There’s the guest list, of course, the mood-lifting flowers and music, even the lighting. The humble home cook might not be able to whip up a white-clothed table set for 175 in an orchard field, but there are aspects of professional-level parties that ordinary hosts can mimic. String up paper lanterns, or adorn tables with flowers from the farm, for example. Or go the casual route and throw an activity-based get-together, where food lovers can gather to pickle vegetables or make sushi and then savor the rewards. Throw a party they’ll be talking about for years with these fun ideas.
