Reading Time: 2 minutes

There’s nothing quite like celebrating friends and food with your very own dinner party! With chillier temps and less desire to head outside to a restaurant, hosting friends at your gorgeous Lincoln apartment is more appealing than ever. This season, think outside of the box when hosting fun and creative dinner parties.

Celebrate Your Favorite Show

Do you and your friends have a favorite show? Take your obsession even further and make a theme night revolving around it. Guests can dress up and you can prepare an elaborate meal that the show’s characters will love. Mad Men fans will love showing up in 1960s attire as well as being greeted with classic drinks of the decade. For dinner, opt for power lunch classics like steak, shrimp cocktail, or even oysters if you’re in the mood to splurge.

Enter The Roaring 20s

Now that we’re in the 20s, there’s no time like the present to take it back a century. Invite your friends over for a flashy affair complete with gold accents, fancy glassware, and jazz classics. Imbibe like the flappers did and prepare satisfying libations like gin rickeys, mint juleps, or keep it simple with a bottle of Champagne. For dinner, opt for classic appetizers like deviled eggs, a cheese plate, and mini sandwiches.

Enjoy Breakfast for Dinner

If you’re in the mood for a more casual evening, nothing hits the spot quite like having breakfast for dinner. First, send out invitation with a pajama dress code. Then, prepare a menu of scrambled eggs, pancakes, French toast, and hash browns. Stock up on plenty of orange juice for mimosas or you can even set up a Bloody Mary bar with unique garnishes.
