Planning a dinner party can be tough, especially if you’ve never done it before. But after reading these tips, you’ll be ready in no time!

Theme

You can’t start planning a luxurious dinner party without a theme in mind! Think about the colour scheme, do you want it to pop and stand out with some reds? Or would you prefer it be softer, more pastel colours? If you don’t already have an idea in mind, have a look at some magazines, or go online and search for themes and colours that compliment each other. You’re bound to see something that gives you an idea. Then you can start working on your vision.

Dress Code

Every dinner party has a dress code. So feel free to go crazy with it! It’s your party, if you want everyone to turn up in ballgowns and tuxedos then say so. Think about if you want the outfits to fit in with the theme you have chosen or not.

Beverages

You will need to decide on what kind of beverages you want to be served on the night. Do you want to keep it simple with just having a selection of wines and maybe champagne? Or would you like to have all the cocktails in the world all readily prepared for you and your guests?

Catering

Next, you need to decide on what type of food you want at your dinner party, do you want to keep it classic, or do you want to go all out with a ten-course meal? Whatever you choose for your bespoke catering menu, be sure to ask the guests beforehand if there is anything they can’t eat. You wouldn’t want to go to all this trouble just to find out a few people don’t eat meat!

Decoration

Now you’ve got your theme, how are you going to decorate the place to make everything come to life? Do you want to add chandeliers to the mix? Or are you more of a disco ball kind of person?

Location

Where will you be holding this dinner party? Have you got the space for it at your place? Or would you prefer to go all out and rent somewhere for the night? It also depends on how many people you are planning on inviting. You won’t know what kind of size you need if you don’t know the number of people who will be there. So get counting and see what will work best for you and your guests.

Guests

You need to think about who you are going to invite to this magical night. Is it going to be just close friends and family? Or do you want to invite the whole neighbourhood?

Also, decide whether you want to make special invites too. It’ll add that extra touch of royalty!

However, you decide to have your dinner party, the most important factor within it all is to enjoy it and be proud of what you have created!
