When you’re wondering how to host a special dinner for two at your home or office, remember that it doesn’t have to be a formal dinner. You can always find a simple and inexpensive way to celebrate a birthday or even an anniversary. The most important thing is to keep the event informal. Think of something you enjoyed as a child or something you do often and plan on doing it during the special time. You can make invitations or even find printable birthday or anniversary cards online and print them out if you want.
A birthday party can be a great idea if the guest list includes children younger than 12. Invitations for a birthday party can include simple words such as “Happy Birthday,” congratulate,” “well done” and “sincerely” or something similar. Invitations for a girls’ birthday party should feature some type of theme such as a princess, floral, butterfly or anything pink or girly.
An anniversary party can be a more formal dinner. Invitations for this kind of dinner should feature the date, time, and place. Make sure the meal is catered and that there are plenty of decors to match the special occasion. You don’t have to spend a lot of money on decorating for this type of dinner. Just use your imagination and you’ll be amazed at what you come up with.
Are you having a baby? Then a baby shower should be in order. Hosting a baby shower can be very affordable, especially if you plan on having food and drinks for the party spread throughout the evening. If you have a little boy, don’t feel bad about not putting a football shaped cake into the baby’s nursery.
Perhaps you’re celebrating an anniversary and have a group of friends who’ve been coming to your house for years. How to host a birthday party for them is going to be a breeze. They can enjoy good food, drinks, and maybe even some dancing!
Remember, no matter how you decide to throw a birthday party, make sure it’s memorable for everyone. The key to throwing a great birthday party isn’t making every single guest comfortable. It’s about treating everyone like VIP’s. So pick your venue carefully, make sure all your ducks are in a row, and you’re ready for your private dining party. Happy birthday and happy eating!
