Top Tips For Throwing A Stress-Free Dinner Party - TPM Catering

by Liz Seyi Digital marketing manager

Dinner parties are exciting experiences – but for the host, they can be quite stressful, too. From cooking an overcomplicated menu to trying to chime into conversation, all while keeping things fun, it might all seem rather daunting. 

However, it is possible to throw a dinner party that is almost completely stress free. Here are some top tips on how to ensure that, from our experienced events planners and caterers. 

Spend time entertaining rather than cooking 

The most stressful part of any dinner party has to be balancing the time spent in the kitchen and entertaining your guests. For a truly stress-free experience, why not consider party catering in London, and across the home counties, from TPM Catering?  

We pride ourselves on our ability to be bespoke – our creative chefs and experienced planners will work with you to ensure your menu is carefully created to suit the mood of your dinner party. 

Instead of stressing in the kitchen, you can pour yourself a glass of something cold, and relax into entertaining for a hassle-free dining experience. 

Offer guests an appetiser (that won’t ruin appetites!) 

As there will be a wait between arrival time and food being served, you might consider offering an appetiser. That said, eliminating the stress of hungry guests does not mean you should get stressed about guests that are too full instead. 

Appetisers should be just enough to tickle the taste buds, but not so much as to fill up the guests before the main meal is served. Our canapes are the perfect start to any dinner party, serving as bite-sized bursts of flavour, to be enjoyed while mingling with a glass in hand. 

Promote conversation with sharing platters 

Dinner parties do not have to be formal sit-down dinners with several courses. Instead, foster a relaxed atmosphere by serving delicious sharing platters. This will provide a talking point for guests, eliminating those awkward silences while everyone is eating. 

Not only that, with our private catering in London, your sharing platters can be finished on site by one of our chefs, and served to guests by our waiting team, so you don’t even need to worry about leaving the table. 

Don’t forget the drinks!

Whether they take the form of an arrival drink, aperitif, wine that pairs with the meal, or a digestif, drinks can really elevate any dining experience. 


You’ll be pleased to know that our private catering in London makes possible an extensive selection of beverages, covering everything from wines and beers to cocktails, spirits, Champagne, and everything in between. 

And the best part of our private catering in London? You won’t even need to do the washing up – we can provide all the crockery, glassware, and cutlery you need, and take it away at the end of the night.
