There may have been a day when it was easy to plan a dinner party for a few close friends, but once you have children, this may change. Don’t worry. There are still ways you can entertain that will keep the children happy while you and the other adults can visit with one another. This is especially fun when you find that your friends also have growing families.
Sure the kids won’t be able to comprehend trivial pursuit, but they can still have fun with the other kids. Set up one table where the adults can play a game of their choice, and set up another child’s size table complete with Candy Land, Apples to Apples, and other age appropriate games. If you and your pals enjoy card games, have them start a rousing game of Go Fish. You may have to stop occasionally to help the little ones out, but you’ll still be able to enjoy some adult company. End the evening with a game everyone can play together like charades that can be suited to all ages.
Dinner under the Stars
Have a dinner all together that everyone can enjoy such as burgers on the grill, hot dogs, or sloppy Joes. Set a table and chairs up on your patio or deck so that you can enjoy the cool evening breezes. After eating, have plenty of toys and games available in the yard where the kids can have some fun. You and the other grown-ups can enjoy a lovely dessert and conversation while still being able to keep an eye on the children. Decks are perfect for this type of entertaining. If you are in need of a new deck Fort Washington MD has several contractors that can help like those at Ace Home Improvements.
These ideas are just a couple of ways you can still entertain like an adult while keeping the children happy. When done correctly, you, your friends, and all of the kids will be making memories that will last a lifetime, but don’t feel restricted to just these suggestions. Be creative, and find ways of your own to continue being hospitable to family and friends without excluding the little ones.
