Host a Dinner Party in Minecraft

Try these delicious recipes with your friends!

Food! It’s quite honestly all I ever think about. Well, that and Minecraft, a game which is full of great recipes and tasty treats. So why not combine two great things (as recipes are wont to do) and invite some pals to play multiplayer and host your own in-game dinner party?

If you’ve never been to a dinner party before, it’s basically a great way to hang out with friends and score a free meal. Hosting one is a little trickier, so I’ve compiled a list of great recipes, decor, conversation topics and more to help you host the best Minecraft dinner party on the block!

THE FOOD

Please don’t forget to serve ‘dinner’ at your ‘dinner party’. Learn from my mistakes.

THE DRESS CODE

When hosting a dinner party, it’s VITAL that you mention a dress code on your invitations, unless you want to risk all your guests turning up naked. Here are some good examples of what to wear for both an smart soiree or a casual get-together:

 

THE CONVERSATION

Don’t let awkward silence quietly spoil the party. Here are a few ice-breakers that should get the chit-chat flowing:

  1. “What’s the stupidest thing you’ve ever tried to build in Minecraft?”
  2. “Can you believe that people say I’m out of touch, just because my mansion, garden and butler are all made of diamond blocks?”
  3. “You know, according to the greatest website on the internet, the guests of a dinner party are supposed to handle all the washing up. True story.”
  4. “I’ve gathered you all here today to reveal a terrible secret. One of you is an escaped convict in disguise!” (this one never fails to get the evening going).

THE DECOR

Why not really impress your guests by rebuilding some famous art in Minecraft? Like this magnificent recreation of the Mona Lisa.

Of course, you could always use some of the art we provide in Minecraft already, by hanging up a painting. Our very own Duncan Geere recently took a deep dive into the history of the paintings in Minecraft all of which are guaranteed to ‘class up’ your dinner party by at least 1000 percent.

THE COMFORT

You could serve lobster stuffed with diamonds, and your guests would still leave your party miserable if you made them eat it while seated in a dirt pit full of Creepers. So make sure you build a dining table and some chairs.

Let’s start with the seating:

Next, you’ll want to build your dining table:

If you want to try making more complex dining room furniture, try this excellent page of the wonderful Minecraft wiki. To learn how to build a dining table that really puts my effort to shame, watch this tutorial video.

Experiment with different designs and craft a dining experience unique to your party!

THE ALL-IMPORTANT BRAGGY SPEECH

Give a perfect evening the perfect end with a toast to yourself. Here’s the one I usually make:

Thank you all so much for coming to my dinner party! It was a magical evening, thanks to me, and the exit fee is only 6000 Minecoins. Jeeves, block the doors. Tom Stone
