If you have a cart or small table, turn it into your bar. If you can, try to offer bar access from more than one side to prevent traffic jams. You should stock your mini bar generously to keep guests from looking through your house. Don’t forget to make sure you leave a little bit of room for mixing drinks.
You should reserve small tasks for any guests who show up early or those who tend to shy away from small talk. These tasks can include: setting the table, filling the water pitcher and ice bucket, putting rolls in a basket, etc.
Create a space for appetizers away from your work zone, so that people know exactly where they can linger. Guests like to hover around the kitchen, so try sending appetizers out into the living or dining room with a sociable guest.
If you know it’s going to be awhile before dinner is actually served, you should have as many appetizers as possible, because people tend to arrive hungry to a dinner party.
Our South San Antonio movers suggest making place cards for all of your guests. It may seem formal, but guests actually feel more comfortable if seating is arranged for them.
The best way to keep your guests entertained, is to serve everything family style. The ultimate reason for your dinner party is to entertain your guests, so don’t keep getting up and down.
For dessert, the best thing to do is make minis. You’ll avoid the “just a sliver” comments and guests will be more likely to eat them if they are small.
