How to host an el­e­gant din­ner party

GLT Magazine - - Contents -

Create a theme.

This will help you de­cide which food to serve, how to dec­o­rate the ta­ble and what games to play. It doesn't have to be com­pli­cated or fancy, but keep­ing a con­sis­tent theme will make it el­e­gant, light and en­joy­able.

Keep it re­laxed

The eas­i­est way to ruin an evening, is to be rushed and stressed. You are the host, so it fol­lows that you set the tone for the evening. Start as you mean to go on and of­fer­ing your guests drinks and nib­bles on ar­rival to break the ice, and of­fer a taste of what's to come.

Stock up.

Plenty of food, drinks and light en­ter­tain­ment will en­sure your guests en­joy their evening. Run­ning out of good­ies is the worst, and a trip to the lo­cal 24 hour shop to stock up could ruin an evening.
