Inviting manager for a house dinner?

I would like to invite one of my managers for a dinner, and prepare some traditional food for him with my husband. we'd like to talk with him about his experiences. However, I am not sure what kind of language I should use. If you may send an example, I will appreciate your help.

To invite your manager, you'll want to consider several things. The most important of them being that he or she might be uncomfortable coming alone to a dinner. The second most important thing to consider is what types of food he or she likes, and more importantly, what he or she may be allergic to, and perhaps embarrassed to discuss.

For addressing the invitation, you should simply indicate that you and your husband would like to invite him or her and a guest to a private dinner, and ask whether he or she prefers a vegetarian dish, poultry, meat, fish, or sea foods. Make sure to also ask whether he or she likes spicy dishes, but keep in mind that the idea of spicy for Indian dishes and Cantonese dishes is usually very different than the idea for spicy in most American dishes. It's helpful to also know if he or she has any children that might want to come.

In terms of food, allergies or tastes are usually hard to identify unless someone tells you. For example, some people are allergic to garlic, while others have a strong distaste for thyme, or sweet foods. This can make a difference in what you prepare, as everyone will feel better if you've cooked something he or she likes. Also, as an alternative, it's always nice to have something slightly less ethnic and more traditional, just in case. As long as your guest is not a vegetarian, it's hard to go wrong with a small roasted chicken that you can also put on the table.

For the language, you can simply write something like, "We are pleased to invite you and the guest of your choice to our home, where you will enjoy a sampling of our home cooked ethnic food. We are able to prepare a wide selection of dishes, including vegetarian dishes, meats, poultry, fish, and seafood, as suits your tastes. Please let us know which time best suits you, and your preferences in food, including any preferences for spicy or mild tastes, and any foods you prefer not to eat, such as certain spices or additives like sugar. We're open to any day of the week and time that suits you."

Something to that effect should do nicely. Please let us know how it goes, and what you cooked.

How to write a message for a friend for a meal at my house?

I'd like to invite her for a meal at my house. I am not sure how to encourage her to accept the invitation. What reasons should I give, and should I add other relevant information?


The first thing to consider is how she will feel about being invited to a dinner. If you know her well, then this will not be a problem, however, if you do not know her well, then you'll need to make sure she feels safe coming to your home for dinner. While you are of course aware that there is no problem, she might have concerns or reservations.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Therefore, a great way to invite someone over for dinner is to follow it up with a definite departure time where you can go out somewhere else. For example, you can invite her to your house for a home cooked meal, prepared by you, at 6PM, followed by dessert at a nearby dessert shop at 9PM or before, depending on when the dinner finishes.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

This way she knows that there is a set time to her dinner visit, and if things go well, or she wants to spend more time at your home, she can either decide not to go out for dessert (make sure you have a very nice cake and some ice cream on hand just in case), or she can decide to come back to your home after dessert for coffee.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

By combining these reasons into a pleasant and friendly invitation, she will know that you have taken her concerns and reservations into consideration, and that you're respecting her right to choose how long she stays, and whether she's interested in spending more or less time with you.
