True Aussie Beef & Lamb has appointed me as a brand ambassador. (Yes, I am very fortunate to be employed by such a fantastic company!) And I get paid to write recipes and blog posts for them, like this one, ‘Own Your Party Entertainment Ideas along with thirteen table looks using napkins.’ Trust me when I say that I only work with companies that I genuinely believe in and respect their product(s) and the kind of business they are. Someone who has the same beliefs as I do. Above everything, I just work with food corporations whose items I can eat with my family and friends! I am responsible for all of these thoughts and the development of this recipe.

Entertainment party ideas

Yes, you entertain all year, but it’s likely that your true fun begins right after Halloween. That’s when anything happens! The ‘Holidays’ erupt in complete glory in the Western world and Western-influenced nations. Although we see signs of the holidays before Halloween, such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and New Years, the “full blown Monty” comes immediately after we pull off our costumes and masks. 

Tea party ideas

When we’re planning for the ‘happiest time of the year with lowcountry seafood boil,’ or are we? It can sound like you’re on a hamster wheel struggling to get something done. Perhaps you’ve spent much too much money. Using credit cards to accumulate debt. Trying to be all things to all people. Hey, I’ve met people who have planned up to four parties in a single evening. Darting around and making appearances. If you let it, it will wear you out! To me, this sounds like group torment!

Fun games for party

Let’s begin with a fundamental assumption regarding groups for lowcountry seafood boil. It is not important to entertain all of the time. Sure, it’s effort and preparation. And if you do so, the execution and distribution will go ahead without a hitch. It is my sincere hope that you can have some fresh ideas, be inspired to try something new, and even err on the side of whimsical and fun with your entertaining! Life is too fleeting. It’s nice to have little sources of joy!

Party with friends

This is what I mean by mood that is set by beautiful Lemon Cottage Cheesecake. What exactly do you want to make? What kind of impression do you want your visitors to leave with? Are they really stopping by for a visit? Will the whole family, including the kids, be invited? Are you attempting to form new bonds with friends and family? Since there are so many people who don’t know each other, you would need name tags. I tend to hold smaller, more casual adult parties where old and new friends will mingle. We’re talking around a group of six to maybe 18 to 20 individuals.

Party fun games

The number of people you’re hosting normally dictates the menu for perfect tea party ideas. A full meal can be served at a small dinner party. You could serve a buffet meal to ten to twelve guests. Maybe just nibbles, like tapas and mezze eats, while you’re closing in on almost twenty-plus party creatures. It’s crucial to create this aspect of the entertainment. Anything else that can happen during the event preparation period is affected by it.

Aussie Party Lamb Meatballs

I'm going to show you some of the most unique and coolest, and cheapest, party entertainment ideas ever! It's all about stretching your bucks!


  • 1 lb. lamb, ground, grassfed and/or organic
  • ½ cup French onion dip
  • ½ cup parmesan, grated
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 ½ tsp. Garlic Herb Seasoning Mixture, WalMart organic brand
  • 1 tsp. dried mint
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • ½ tsp. dried rosemary
  • ½ tsp. red chili flakes
  • ¾ cup bread crumbs
  • ½ cup flat parsley, fresh, packed and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 (28 oz.) can Cento San Marzano peeled tomatoes + 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup shaved parmesan
  • SIDE DISH to serve with Meatballs:
  • 4-5 cups fresh greens, mixture of arugula, spinach, baby kale, etc.
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 (14.5 oz.) cans garbanzo beans, drained
  • 2 tsp. harissa
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. salt


In a large mixing bowl, put the lamb, French onion dip, parmesan, eggs, garlic herb seasoning, mint, salt, rosemary and chili flakes. Blend together really well combining all the ingredients into a thick meat mixture.

Add the bread crumbs and parsley and blend together. Don't overwork the mixture, just enough to incorporate all ingredients. The mixture is now ready for rolling into meatballs.

Pinch about two heaping tablespoons and roll in to a meatball. Repeat until all the meat is rolled into meatballs. There should be about 10 to 12 meatballs. Of course, the size of your meatballs will determine the total number you get from the mixture.

Put a Dutch oven (medium size) on a medium blaze. Let it get hot. Add the olive oil. Add five to six meatballs and brown on all sides. Use tongs and remove these meatballs to a bowl. Add the remaining meatballs and brown. Then return the first batch of browned meatballs to the pot.

Cover the meatballs with the tomatoes and water. Cover with a lid. Cook for thirty minutes on medium stirring occasionally.

Reduce heat to low and simmer until ready to serve. The tomatoes will cook down and become a ‘marinara’ type sauce consistency. Stir occasionally.

While the meatballs are cooking, prepare the garbanzo beans. Heat a medium skillet on medium heat. Add the olive oil, beans, harissa and cumin. Toss and blend well. Cook about 7-10 minutes over medium low heat.

When serving, put some of the greens on the plate, top with some of the beans and several of the meatballs and sauce.
