Hosting A Virtual Dinner Party - En Route

Hosting A Virtual Dinner Party

Trust me, all your friends will want an invite

Here in Australia, we’re over a month into isolation, weekdays and weekends are starting to blur into one. From calendars that look like we’re social butterflies, having brunches, lunches, and dinners scheduled in on a weekend, to impromptu video calls with the girls in sweat pants and a glass of wine on the couch.    

This weekend rather than FaceTiming a girlfriend whilst your boyfriend plays video games, schedule in a virtual date with your girls or even a double date with your partner, bestie and her partner. Date nights have always been an occasion where we spend time selecting a venue and an outfit. We might still be in isolation, but our dates nights can still go as planned. It does take a little preparation to ensure it’s an evening everyone will remember, here are a few things to consider when planning your next virtual date. 

SET THE SCENE

Choose a space in your home, whether it be the table or couch for the evening and set the scene just as you would if you were hosting a dinner party at your place.

SELECT YOUR FOOD, DRINKS, AND DESSERT

Just as you would at a restaurant, everyone should sip on their favourite drink, or why not all pick the same cocktail to shake it up. As for the food, decide on one cuisine and each order from your local restaurant. For dessert, pull out some icecream or that isolation dessert you recently made.
