3 Unique Ways to Elevate Your Next Dinner Party


There is perhaps nothing more nourishing for the soul than gathering friends and family around a table for food, laughter, and inspiring conversation. Whether you’re simply catching up or celebrating a special occasion, we’ve compiled a list of unique ways to ensure your evening is both fun-filled and stylish. 


Use on-trend tableware

Indulge in the subtle luxury of laying your table with well-made plates, cutlery, and more. With lots of different shapes, colours, and materials to choose from, it’s the perfect way to set the mood for your party, or even create a curious talking point! Not to mention, quality dinnerware will last a lifetime, as well as being a creative way to express your personal style. You can look for inspiration on Pinterest or Instagram or browse our curated collections from our hand-picked partners here at DLISH.


Serve food with a story

Stories are what connect us as humans, so what better way to nurture your relationships than with story-led cooking? This might involve telling your guests that the saffron used to season their risotto comes from a community-led farm in northern Italy, or that their olive oil is harvested and blended to a family recipe, passed down through generations. Another way to add intrigue and a sense of story to your dinner party is through deliciously aged produce and beautiful antiques, such as those found in our DLISH Antiques Collection.

Add an interesting experience

Delight and surprise your guests with a fascinating experience such as that offered by the Camere Olfattive. Designed to enhance the sensory consumption of olive oil, wine, whisky, and coffee, this handcrafted bubble glass is a truly unique way to make your dinner party one to remember. Other alternatives include suggesting a table game or treating your guests with a thoughtful gift to go home with. This could be a little something to remind them of the meal, such as a jar of the sauce you used, or even a curated gift box so they can recreate the dinner party experience at home.

We hope we have inspired you as to the infinite number of ways you can incorporate the magic of food, art, and design into your dinner party. At the end of the day, remember that with plenty of planning and a sprinkling of passion, anything is possible!
