Whether you’re celebrating a big achievement or looking for an excuse to party like an adult, hosting your first dinner party at your house can be equally exciting and stressful. How many people do I invite? What food and drinks do I serve? How far in advance should I prepare?

As a first-time hoster, you don’t just want to impress your guests with your spectacular hosting skills. You also want to knock your guests out of the park with food that’ll have Gordon Ramsay shouting “This is fabulous!”

Provide Plenty of Food and Drinks
Speaking of food, you’ll want options for everyone— and a lot of them!
After you check on your guests’ dietary restrictions, be sure to plenty of food and drinks that’ll fill everyone’s stomachs to the brim.
But remember— though it’s tempting to order a lot of food, “Be Our Guest” style, you don’t want to overload your guests with too many options. It can be overwhelming!
Instead, stick to a few appetizers and a proportionate amount of entrees and desserts that’ll satisfy your guests and won’t leave you with a fridge overflowing with too many leftovers.
