Perfecting your Hosting Skills

Thinking of hosting a gathering for the party season? Today we will be giving you a few tips to help perfect your hosting skills.

 

  • Preparation preparation preparation is the key to hosting the perfect party. When you plan ahead, you plan for smooth sailing.
  • Make sure you know any specific dietary requirements your guests may have. This can prevent any awkward situations from arising where your guest cannot eat what you have prepared.
  • In all your planning, try to make time to be with your guests for majority of the night. There is nothing worse than spending most of your time in the kitchen, while your guests have to tend to themselves.
  • Entertaining can be stressful. Minimise the stress by sticking to a dish you are comfortable with and you know will go down well with your guests. Dinner parties are not the place to experiment with new dishes you have not prepared before, to avoid unnecessary stress in case something goes wrong.
  • Make sure your guests are well fed and have drinks flowing. Do not let them feel like they still need to prepare dinner when they get home.
  • Finally, it’s nice for your guests to go home with something small to remember the evening by, so a takeaway gift will be the icing on the cake.
