Dinner Party. Essentials.

There is a fine art to throwing a successful and memorable dinner party where you can actually enjoy yourself, talk to your guests and show off your culinary skills (or more cunning, find a great caterer).

Since we live in an apartment with a tiny round table, we don't throw as many of these as we would like, but here a few essential points to consider:

Who to invite - Invite people you like to be around. I find that most people just love a home cooked meal and good company.



What to cook - I have been inspired lately by the fact that healthy and organic can mean delicious - have a browse here for a meal your guests will thank you for 101 Cookbooks. For something a little more decadent try Donna Hay, never disappoints.


Table Setting  This is the part I love. Let your creativity run wild, dust of the vintage china, fold your napkins, light the candles and buy fresh flowers. Alternatively throw out some colourful place mats and a bottle of wine and your set.











How to fold a napkin
A little old fashioned perhaps, but you know everything old is new again...if you have the time on the night try your hand at napkin folding.


Celebrate good company...
