Dinner Party Basics

The basic concepts will work whether your party is big or small. Just adjust accordingly!

Years ago, my friend Hanna taught me the value of celebrating the little things in life as they arise. These tough times do not call for cutting out partying. On the contrary, these are the times we need to embrace friends and family and join together in celebration. So  celebrate, a birthday, revel in a promotion, or start a dinner club with  three or four couples — create an elaborate evening or keep it simple.  Let Party Idea Pros walk you through each step of planning your dinner party by providing professional recommendations on all the little details. And if we forget something, feel free to remind us!
