1. Upgrade Your BuffetWe know you're used to the top quality seafood and steak at JB Hook's so we're positive you'll enjoy serving your guests more than the traditional spread. Consider an interactive food station you can set up around the dining room. This creates movement and encourages the crowd to mingle. We suggest opting for plates of smoked meats and fish on unique breads paired with risotto and vegetable soups.
2. Mix Up A Holiday CocktailServe a pre-mixed drink, such as sangria or "spiked" eggnog. You can prepare this before guests arrive in batches to accommodate the party. Not only will you amaze your guests with this signature cocktail, you may be able to save a little money. Set your glasses out around the punch bowl and let your guests help themselves!
Let go of the feeling that your dinner party has to be flawless. Don't focus on the things that are going wrong and think about how you can realistically handle the problems. Prioritize your time and check your list off as you go. And remember, there's no shame in swinging by your favorite fine dining restaurant and picking up a prepared dish or two. *wink*
3. Perfect Isn't Necessary
After you've prepped all day and served the loveliest of meals to your dinner guests, don't leave them wondering where you've run off to. You miss out on great conversation and lots of laughs when you run off to clean the kitchen. Those dishes will be there later and you'll be ready to attack the mess after a fun evening of eating and chatting with your party guests.
