5 Dinner Party Ideas

Here are 5 easy tips from Gooseberry Catering to help you throw an amazing dinner party that your guests will enjoy.

Create a simple menu

Choose recipes that don’t require precise timing, that way you won’t be stressed if your guests are late or you get caught up in conversation.

Keep portions small

By keeping portions small you’ll be able to show off your culinary talents. Small but delicious dishes will have your guests anticipating the next course.

Choose seasonal produce

The key to creating great dishes is using seasonal produce. Research what is in season and your dishes will be bursting with flavour.

Add all the trimmings

Table setting and ambiance is just as important as the food. A matching dinner set, candles, fresh flowers and soft music in the background adds that special extra touch. The perfect environment will help your guests relax and conversation flow freely.

Select good quality wine

You don’t have to have an abundance of wine but what you select is essential. Match the wine to the dishes you are serving to help enhance the flavour and if you’re unsure, ask your wine supplier for their advice.
