Create a theme
A dinner party theme gives you great opportunity to use your imagination. Themes
can revolve around anything such as veggie or vegan through to sweet or savoury. It
can be a colour or a seasonal theme such as Halloween or Christmas.
Inspiration can also come from popular cooking shows such as The Great British
Bake Off which is fuelling the country’s excitement of baking.
Make your party unique with colourful decorations. An autumnal colour scheme with
shades of orange and purple would work well for a splash of vibrancy.
In creating a theme, you have complete control, which makes it all the more exciting.
A seasonal dinner party option could be centred around Halloween, which will soon
be upon us.
Halloween is not just for children. For those hosting a dinner party, you can
incorporate sophisticated dishes to go with your decorations. Seasonal dishes work
a treat like a spiced pumpkin soup or curried pumpkin stew for a twist on the
pumpkin pie classic. But also keep it fun and create amusing, Halloween inspired
names for different dishes. Include themed cocktails, ‘skeleton’ marinated ribs or call
chicken wings ‘bat wings.’ Our beef or vegetarian goulash can easily be incorporated
into a Halloween inspired menu - with a small tweak you have a spooky ‘ghoulish’
Sometimes it’s the simple ideas that can go down a treat and be applicable for lots of
seasonal celebrations. Cookie cut outs are a great cost-effective option for a theme
as they can be in the shape of anything; pumpkins for Halloween, reindeers for
Christmas, bunnies for Easter, the list goes on.
