Learn how to host a stress-free dinner party with these easy tips and tricks. You’ll find all of my favorite menu ideas, desserts, conversation starters, games and more to make your next get-together a success.

One of our family goals this year is to invite at least one new family over each month. Many of you expressed interest in hearing more about menu’s and what we do when we invite people over… so I thought I would write up a post for all of you.

We’ve lived in 3 different states away from family over the past couple years, so we’ve had to get out of our comfort zone and invite people over for dinner or dessert nights if we wanted to meet people. This doesn’t have to be fancy and in fact the casual get togethers are my favorite. Whenever I hear my kids say (or find myself thinking) “I wish I were invited to that party, play date…etc.” or “I wish I had a good friend,” I find that is the perfect opportunity to invite someone over and a great way to fellowship. You can’t just sit and wait for people to invite you over… or you may be waiting a long time. Some people your family will connect with more than others and that’s okay. But I will say that some of our best friendships that we have made over the years were from inviting someone over or being invited to someone’s home.
