or adults. First choose your menu and number each item to be served. Keep this list in the kitchen to use later–do not show guests this list or tell them what is on the menu.

You will be serving three courses with four items each time. At the dinner table have a dinner order form (see below for printable forms) and pen waiting for each guest. Ask them to write their names on the paper. Have guests to write in number 1-12 on each blank line, any order they would prefer.

Now the fun, take their number list and prepare their plates of  food accordingly. Serve courses on paper plates and at the end of each course completely clear the table. This includes the silverware. Do have plenty of napkins on the table because at some point in the meal they will be eating with their hands.

Guests will have a blast. It is fun to bring out all the plates at once, everyone enjoys seeing what combination each person has selected. You will need at least two helpers int he kitchen to pull this off.
