    Excellent tips, especially entertainment and setting the tone. I firmly believe that those two elements can make or break a dinner party lol. I’ve been to parties,and thrown dinner parties, that have been dull and in hindsight, entertainment and setting the tone prior would have made all the difference in the world.

    I love dinner parties but I’m more on the casual, laid back style. Most often I host dinner with my colleagues especially on a Friday. We would basically chip in for all the food and drinks expenses, someone will do the grocery and I do the cooking. Afterwards, when plates are all greased, someone is assigned to wash the dishes. We usually play games after dinner while sipping a glass of wine or any drinks available. That’s how we do it here.

     However, I would like to take your suggestions for formal dinner. I never decorated for a party before nor set up a certain mood for the guests. I could probably test my skills in hosting skills on my husband’s birthday and invite his colleagues, not to impress but for the experience. By the way, is it necessary to send invitations? Thanks for sharing all these fancy but doable ideas!

      Yeah I mostly enjoy laid-back dinner parties because there is no pressure to impress anyone and everyone is just enjoying themselves. In my opinion, it is necessary to send out invitations because that’s how people become informed about your event and the details they may need to know such as time, location, and theme. Plus, there are different types of invitations such as word of mouth, evite, letters, etc…

    Entertainment is very important in any party. I tend to try to do things on my own when I have a party. Just like you said, I flex my independedmt muscle which is a very thing to do because at the end of everything, I get really exhausted. This tips are excellent and I will be putting them in mind. Do you think though that it is polite to ask your guests to bring items and games since you’re the host?

    Thanks for sharing this nice idea. Me and my friends often do this monthly hosting and our individual places. Sometimes I find it very hard to put up with what they will be eating or drinking on that day. The last time I hosted was a real mess and since then I have been avoiding it. Seeing this post makes me want ti give it a try again. I belive these tips are the best for anyone to host a dinner successfully

    This is simply thoughtful and helpful. Thanks
    I and my hubby would be hosting our neighbors for dinner and it seems a little daunting to me because I want to present a worthy atmosphere to them all. These tips are superb and would definitely be my run to guide throughout the planning and the dinner. I particularly like the suggestion to include them in providing for the dinner too, that makes a whole lot of sense.  I’d try to get them all informed ahead concerning this. Thanks
