Whether you're welcoming a new arrival or gearing up for your wedding, having a dinner party can be a winning solution for virtually any occasion and will give guests a mouth-watering reason to look forward to your event.
If you're a whiz in the kitchen, you'll probably enjoy throwing together the entire meal yourself, though the preparation can be fun as a small group activity with a couple of close friends. Otherwise, potlucks are still highly in fashion, and you'll get the widest sampling of culinary delights from a range of different tastes and styles.
In order to distinguish your feast from any other ordinary dinner gathering, offering guests kitchen-themed party favors will make your event all the more special and encourage friends to continue making magic in the kitchen long after the night wears down.
Glass spice jars are inexpensive and can be used to store more than just spices, though they look oh-so-charming when stacked by the dozens. Gourmet cupcake mixes will inspire those with a sweet-tooth while mini pizza cutter favors will come in handy for all lovers of savory, cheesy goodness.
