Many residents of Lake Oswego apartments enjoy gatherings with their loved ones at their spacious and well-appointed apartments. Are you looking to take the stress out of hosting your next dinner party in Lake Oswego? Consider these 3 dinner hosting tips to ensure that both you and your guests enjoy your time together:
- Set the right mood. The host helps create an inviting atmosphere with his or her attitude. Do most of the meal prep and cooking beforehand so that you can sit back and relax with your guests. Have a drink before the party to loosen up. A good time is contagious and it starts with the host. Casual and more formal gatherings also benefit from a set playlist to create the ambiance that you desire. Engage your guests but don’t monopolize the conversation. Help guests find shared interests and feel at ease at the party.
- Prepare meals you know. The day of the dinner party is not the day to attempt a new recipe. Have a few recipes that are proven no-brainers to reduce the probability of a last-minute issue. Test-drive any new recipes prior to the gathering to ensure that they come out as expected and are worth the effort.
- Set an inviting table. Bring out the china and silverware for your adult guests. Unless the dinner party is an outdoor event or barbecue, guests will enjoy a nicely laid out table with crystal, china, crisp linens and a few tasteful candles. Guests experience pleasure with their eyes as well as with the taste of the meal and conversation.
