At Brosa, we love our dinner parties.
There’s something incredibly special about inviting your friends over for a gathering of good food, drinks and conversation. Today we’d like to share some of our favourite tips on how to host the perfect stress-free dinner party:

1. Set your table early
A beautifully and thoughtfully set table can really set the tone for a delicious meal. Whether it be floral or candlelight centrepieces that you are after, we recommend keeping them at a fairly low height so that your guests can talk over them. We also recommend setting your table the day before; it’s a great motivation booster to see a fully set table before you begin your cooking.

2. Put your records on
Music is a great way to really set the mood for your dinner party. Create your own playlist, or let Spotify, Pandora or 8tracks do the job for you. 

3. Hors d’oeuvres
Having hors d'oeuvres set out when guests arrive will give you that extra time you need to finish up all your cooking for the night. Set them out at various places around your home, so that your guests are spread out and not crowding in one area.

4. Be prepared and go with what you know
Before planning your meal, make sure to ask your guests whether they have any food allergies or dietary requirements. Also, make dishes that you’ve cooked before. Simple is sometimes the best, and you can rest assured that your guests will appreciate a warm, home-cooked meal cooked by you.
