Long summer evenings are the perfect time to host a dinner party, so venture out into the garden on warm nights and feast on fine food. The perfect way to spend time with loved ones, invite friends over for an evening filled with fun or spend some quality time with family over a home cooked meal.
Take a look at One4all’s essential items for a delicious dinner party this summer!
The main part of any dinner party is well, the dinner! It can be difficult to cater to a range of different guests so make sure you pick an easy, but very tasty recipe to follow. This will take the stress out of cooking so you can enjoy your evening and also leave diners wanting more! Try one of the wonderful dishes from Queen of the kitchen Nigella Lawson’s Nigella Express cookbook and you won’t be disappointed.
Once you’ve picked a delightful recipe to cook for your dinner party guests, it’s time to make sure you have all the right ingredients! Marks & Spencer is a great one stop shop for all the tasty bits you’ll need, as well as some additional nibbles. Pick up a pack of Mini Deep-Filled Vol-Au-Vents to serve while guests wait for their dinner and you certainly won’t hear any complaints.
No dinner party would be complete without some evening entertainment! Whether you choose to have a themed dinner party or just play some games on the night, there are plenty of ways to keep guests entertained in between courses. A traditional pick and favourite among so many, try out the new Pictionary Air game and keep everyone laughing and guessing throughout the night.
