Dinner parties: More involved than you think


Food is not the only major decision you have to make for a successful dinner party.

Dinner parties are not your typical invite-some-friends-over kind of events. In the traditional sense, they are calculated soirees with every element thought out in advance.

One of the major aspects of the evening, and one some people may not give much thought to, are the guests you invite for the dinner party. These events are a success when a dynamic group of people get together and engage in interesting conversation.

This means matching a particular group of people you know (who may not know each other) and gathering them all in one place. It's good to figure this out first because if someone has a specific food allergy, it will most likely dictate the menu.

Some people also enjoy playing music in the background as a way to fill up any uncomfortable silences as well as creating a relaxing atmosphere.

Whatever type of music you pick, make sure you stick to the same genre or type for the entire evening. It may be a bit jarring for your guests to hear jazz and then classic rock right after.

As for sticking to one consistent theme, the same goes for the menu as well.
