How To Plan A Summer Seafood Dinner Party

Summer is just around the corner. It is time to start planning your summer parties. One great party event you should plan this summer is a summer seafood dinner party. Seafood is the perfect summer meal because summer produce is fresh for a summer seafood feast. We are here to help you plan your summer seafood dinner party by giving you a few tips to successfully pull it off. Get started now.


One important part of your summer seafood dinner party is the table setting. You want to set a welcoming atmosphere for your guests. You can do this with the right table setting. Start by getting a blue tablecloth to cover your dinner table. Blue is a summer color that helps guests be reminded of beach vacations and swimming.


Next, you need to create your table centerpiece. A great centerpiece idea is to use tall pillar candles and place them on a metal tray surrounded by driftwood, pebbles, seashells and sea glass to give a beach feel.


After your table is set, you can plan out a creative way to serve your seafood. One serving idea is to place all the seafood on a large seashore themed platter. Have place cards at each seat. Make a list of your favorite summer songs to play for the party.


Finally, plan your seafood menu. Some great and traditional seafood dishes are sauté oysters, deviled clams, Cuban shrimp soup, grilled citrus tuna, grilled corn on the cob, and tomato cucumber salad.


If you are looking for beverages to go wonderfully with your seafood dinner meal, vodka or gin and tonic are perfect to use for summer cocktails.
