Dinner parties are a great way to bring friends, both familiar and unfamiliar, together. These sophisticated soirées provide the perfect setting to meet new people and turn acquaintances into good friends. There are so many ways to make your Miami yacht dinner party unique and memorable, but most of these require you to develop culinary expertise if you don’t already have it and interior decorating skills as well. What if you’ve never been the best cook or decorator? What if there was a service that provided the venue, the entertainment, sweeping dinner tables, fine tableware, and most importantly delicious cuisine?
Charter One Yachts has developed the esteemed reputation of quality service and outstanding results. The Miami yacht charter services we offer are virtually all inclusive. Our professional event planners sit down with you and work within your budget to construct the dinner party you have in mind. All you have to do it tell us what you want and organize the seating arrangement. After all, you know your friends better than we do.
First, select a yacht that fits the atmosphere you want to achieve. The Floridian Princess is an impressive mega yacht that can seat up to 240 dinner party guests comfortably. Intimacy is still well-maintained with small tables for guests to converse and get to know each other better. The Summer Wind is a classic yacht with the capability of accommodating 40 guests for a sit down meal on the open-air top deck. If you live on the water, instead of having your guests go to a marina to board the ship, consider having the ship come to your house to pick you all up. Depending on the tides and docking accommodations, the Summer Wind can do that!
Selecting the perfect Miami yacht dinner cruise menu for your guests to choose from is not a science, but does take some calculated efforts. You might want a traditional British Sunday Roast complete with roasted meat and potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, and sautéed vegetables. These kinds of meals are basically already planned out for you. On the other hand, you may want to select other unique dishes. It’s always a good idea to give your guests options – light or heavy, vegetarian or meat, surf or turf. Our menus have countless tried and tested dishes that are sure to satisfy your friends and family. Whether you choose from our menus or have something different in mind, your wish is our command.
Décor for a dinner party is largely understated, unless of course, you have a special theme. If not, the essentials are ambient lighting, place cards, tableware, and linens. For lighting, twinkling lights, tea lights, candles, etc. provide enchanting natural light that isn’t caustic to the senses. Place cards can be either elaborately intricate or classically simplistic, but a good idea no matter what is to have the names printed on both sides of the card. That way, guests will know the name of the person across from them. Tableware should be sophisticated with a set of forks, knives, and spoons for each course of the meal. Linens should be a neutral color so as not to distract from the main attraction: the meal.
For the most part, guests create their own entertainment – conversation – but it doesn’t hurt to provide something extra. Select a playlist with our event planners. Pick songs that aren’t distracting and loud or depressing and slow. Certain classical pieces can be good selections. Beyond music, the actual process of cooking is intriguing. If you were at your own house, you might even invite guests to come into the kitchen and watch as you prepare the meal. Depending on your menu and the yacht you choose, you may be able to offer this as a form of entertainment to your guests.
When you use Charter One Yachts, instead of being frazzled and preoccupied with the details and making sure everything goes exactly as planned and scheduled, you can be the carefree dinner party host, genuinely enjoying the gathering just as much as everyone else!
