Get strategic with the menu
Planning well in advance when it comes to the food will ensure you don’t have any surprises on the night. We suggest cooking meals that you are already familiar with or choose dishes that seem fancy but aren’t difficult to prepare and cook. Putting together a cheese board that is ready for when your guests arrive is always a great, simple idea for getting started.
Don’t forget to decorate because a couple of spruces make all the difference. We suggest decorating your table with fresh or dried flowers to really make it pop. If you really want to set the ambiance, light a few scented candles and string up some fairy lights along the wall or ceiling.
Lay your table ahead of time
Just before your guest are due to arrive is probably going to be the busiest and most stressful part of the night. To save yourself time and stress running around trying to lay the table, we recommend laying the table immediately after you do your decorating just before your start your cooking!
Choose the right music
The right soundtrack can have such a big impact on the atmosphere of your party so it’s important to choose the perfect playlist. Aim for something that is easy to listen to that will suit the mood. This Spotify “Dinner Mood” playlist is a good one! https://open.spotify.com/playlist/37i9dQZF1DX1dCB1tRLrgB?si=d51a829c09e8454f
