Kitchen Appliance Retailers Share 4 Tips for Throwing a Large Dinner Party
1. Expect the Unexpected
Additional guests could show up whether they RSVP’d or not. Guests may likely bring friends unless you specifically say not to. Adjust the menu for surprises and make enough food to serve several extra guests.
2. Save Time
Prepare seasonal foods that can be cooked ahead of time or dishes that don’t need to be made from scratch. Winter soups and briskets will feed a large crowd and can be cooked the night before in the crockpot. Pies can be made with store-bought crusts, which will save on prep, leaving more time for decorating or resting.
3. Clean the Clutter
You don’t have to be a clean-freak, but keep the kitchen, dining space, and adjoining rooms tidy. Clean as you go; don’t let dirty dishes or kitchen appliances pile up and get out of hand. Close the door and turn the lights off in messy rooms where you don’t want guests to enter.
4. Ask for Help
Catering is always an option, but if you’re set on doing most of the cooking yourself, enlist the help of some friends. Ask them to bring their favorite dessert or alcoholic beverages. Additionally, put anyone who shows up early to work by having them set the table or put out food and drinks.
