Steps

a breeze

Sure, dinner parties can be a daunting prospect, but with these three simple steps you’ll soon
be entertaining in style – and with a minimum of stress. So if you’re wondering how you can
become the host with the most, then why not try out these effortless but effective tips? Gone are
the days of burned lasagna and awkward moments. A new era of refined hosting has arrived.

1.Set the mood

Atmosphere can be the difference between an elegant soirée and a disappointing dinner, butluckily for you creating the perfect ambiance is easy. First, consider your lighting. Low, softlighting creates an intimate, sociable atmosphere where conversation sparkles. Instead of using

the room’s main light, try out a combination of secondary lighting such as lamps. This will make
your guests feel comfortable and at ease. Just make sure it’s not too dark – your guests will
need to see what’s on their plates!

Creating a playlist is another great way to bring your dinner party to life. Music can be the
perfect accompaniment to your menu and can help guests to avoid any awkward silences. And,
if you’re entertaining for the holidays, you can even give your dinner party a festive touch with
some carefully selected songs. But remember: the music shouldn’t be overwhelming or
distracting. If you’re feeling stumped, then there’s no shame in finding a great dinner party
playlist online. Oh, and a few candles always go down well.
