Keep it Simple
Your dinner doesn’t have to be straight out of Better Homes and Garden. It can be at a restaurant, it can be a potluck style dinner, or you can order pizza. Simplifying the meal will save time and make the hosting experience as stress-free as possible.
Set the Tone
Create a warm and welcoming environment for your guest. Kickoff the dinner with the expectation that the conversation is the center of this event!
Moderate the conversation
Encourage everyone to speak and enable all of them to be heard. Invite your guests to talk to each other, not just with you. Make sure to further the conversation by probing for specifics and examples.
Don’t forget to enjoy!
Not everything will be perfect, so go with the flow! Remember the real purpose of this dinner is gathering friends and community members to have the conversations that matter.
Share! Share! Share!
Pictures, videos, text post, don't be shy! Think of social media as an extension of the dinner table, but the conversation doesn't have to end after dessert. Remind guests to connect after the dinner so they can keep sharing resources, ideas, and stories .
We're so excited for you!
