As restrictions have slowly eased and dinner parties have been allowed again, you may still be hesitant to host a gathering. Questions for social distancing and the kind of setup in the new normal can be intimidating, even for experienced dinner party hosts – but we’re here to help you navigate your options. Here are the best practices to enjoy a safe dinner party at home or hosting social event at any other venue.
What to Consider When Hosting a Social Gathering in the New Normal
Things have not changed, and you’ll still plan for the usual logistics, with the added safety precautions for health. This will include:
- what food menu will accommodate everyone’s taste and diet preferences
- the seating plan
- sanitation stations or sanitiser giveaways
3 Steps to Ensure that You Have a Safe Dinner Party during COVID
- Confirm that you or any guests have no health issues before participating in an event.
Giving and receiving invitations are dependent on everyone’s health before anything else. If you or any of your intended invitees have doubts or if you have been in contact with people who have been sick, it would be better to suspend plans indefinitely.
- Everyone practices good hygiene before entering and leaving the premises.
Sanitation stations are now a required fixture anywhere, so you will have to provide opportunities for guests to sanitise their hands as often as they can. You can have handy sanitisers available at every table or every corner of the venue, or you can have wait staff offer sanitisers to anyone who might need them.
- Each person will have their plate and that no plate sharing is done.
Aside from distancing guests at least 1.5 meters apart, discourage any food sharing between people. Have guests enjoy their plates.
