The essentials you need for your next dinner party




As the weather warms up & COVID restrictions ease, it's time to reconnect with friends. And what better way than to throw a dinner party? A study revealed that about 56% of millennials attend or host at least 1 dinner party every month (in normal times), so here are the essentials you need to make your next party a success



A drink on arrival


Who doesn't love being handed a glass of wine upon arrival? Pair this with a cheese board for your guests to graze off and you've got the night off to a swinging start.




A planned menu


Planning your menu is perhaps the most crucial part of your dinner party preparations. For a party of 5, think about a light appetizer or two, a substantial main dish, two side dishes, dessert, and some healthy snacks.



Impress your guests by serving a fresh seafood platter

This time of year is perfect for seafood lovers so order some fresh prawns and oysters to make a delightful seafood platter.



Dinnerware


Bring out your best cutlery & crockery for your guests.






Create the ambiance & enjoy


Most top chefs agree that where people eat is as important as what they eat. Put the effort into setting a great environment that will significantly improve your guests’ dining experience. Why not make your kitchen both fun and functional with a smart home device to conveniently play music and take requests from the rest of the family, remind you of the next step in the recipe, set a timer or even order more

groceries for you - all without needing to step away from the cooking.




After the cooking is done, ask Google to play your favourite music and enjoy the night!
