Recreate Thai Culture

If you were hosting dinner parties with the same food and party theme, to try something exciting with a Thai dinner party.  Careful planning is all that is needed to make a successful dinner party.

Setting

The charm of Thai themed dinner party comes from its setting. Table preparation is the key to dinner. For Thai dinner party uses an embroidered green or red silk runner to give the table an exotic Asian look echoing the mystic of the East. Bamboo mats in their natural colour enhance the vibrant silk runner.

Orchids floating in low Celadon or jade green vases and scented candles may be arranged beautifully to perk up the table. Shiny pebbles around the vases can add more elegance. Using raffia tied with ribbon that matches the colour of table runner can be exotic. Nothing can beat Thai traditional instrumental music in enhancing the ambience. So go for it.

Lighting

Lighting in the dining needs to be subtle. Do not brightly lit but use illuminated soft lighting to dramatize the scent of incense and heighten the Thai inspired dinner. The set and lighting collectively make the dining experience a delightful one.

Food and Drinks

Dinner ideas for the festive fare will differ and will be incomplete without rice and spices. Some Thai recipes can be easily prepared in advance or brought from the stores. The menu can cover poultry, noodles, pork, fish, and greens.

Hot, sour, sweet, bitter or salty are flavours prepared with the freshest ingredients. Select ingredients available in Thai food shops or order the more tricky recipes from authentic Thai restaurants.

For drinks, select Thai Iced tea for women. Similar to the menu at a Thai restaurant, this sweet concoction covers black tea, evaporated milk, sugar, cinnamon, cardamon, and tons of crushed ice. All gentlemen can have full bodied Singha Beer and have a kick out of it.

So take the initiative to introduce the flavours of Thai Food at your next dinner party and mesmerize the guests with a wonderful cuisine.
