The Perfect Host

Once you've worked out what food you'll need for your guests, you can relax and enjoy yourself. After all, there's no reason why hosting a party shouldn't be as much fun as going to one!

Being a good host isn't all about getting the catering right (although that definitely helps!). If you've got everything organised and are relaxed and in control, your guests will have a much more enjoyable time. And, once you're confident you've got the food sorted, you'll be able to concentrate on just being you!

If you're planning a buffet you'll need more food than for a cocktail party where akra canapes are passed around, as people tend to eat more when they help themselves. The more formal the occasion, the less people eat — guests tend to eat more at gatherings at are relaxed and casual.

Don't worry if the food seems to be disappearing fast at a buffet — most food is eaten during the first 90 minutes of a party, and people will slow down after that. And it's a good idea to provide some options for vegetarians or people with special dietary requirements, such as gluten intolerance.
