Hosting your friends and family at your place for a dinner party can be a joyous occasion – especially during the Holidays, but it can also be stressful if you’re not well prepared. The IKEA Home Tour Squad has 5 simple tips that will help you make sure your space is ready to host!

First – and perhaps most importantly – you need a place for your guests to sit down and eat. The Squad recommends a VANGSTA extendable dining table; an extra leaf extends this table to accommodate up to 6 guests. Of course, once you expand the table, you’ll have to expand your seating. Folding chairs, such as the affordable NISSE folding chairs are perfect for adding extra seating when needed – and an easy storage solution would be to fold and hang the chairs on the wall with BJÄRNUM folding hooks when not in use, freeing up extra space in your area.

Now that everyone has a seat, you want to make sure that your tableware is easily accessible for your guests. We recommend storing DRAGON flatware in a ORDNING utensil holder and your plates on a VARIERA plate holder – this makes it easier to bring your tableware from storage to the dinner table.

Now that the table is set – you want to accessorize to ensure that your party is looking great! A patterned IKEA 365+ tablecloth and pink DINERA plates are affordable ways to add some color to the table. Light some JUBLA unscented candles, placed in a STOCKHOLM candlestick holder, to help set the mood and get ready for a delicious meal!

Lastly, make the most out of your surface space! IKEA 365+ serving plates in various sizes and FÖRESLÅ bowls are a great way to present main dishes and sides – place them on an open counter top or above storage cabinets for a buffet-style serving. If you don’t have too much open space – go vertical with a 3-tier KVITTERA serving stand which perfect for hors d’oeuvres and desserts such as cookies and cupcakes.
