Dinner Invitation Etiquette....?

When asking someone out to a meal how do you word the invitation so they know you will be paying dutch (each party their own half) and what price level the restraruant is?

I want to invite our new friends out but finances won't allow me to cover the bill for everyone and while the restaruant is not extragavant it is also not cheap (about $25-$45 a person). I don't know their finacial situation so I think it would be proper to let them know what their agreeing to.

Also, when inviting someone out (and paying dutch) is it inappropriate to use a coupon or gift certificate for your portion of the bill? What if your paying the whole bill?

How should I tell guests on an invitation that their dinner is not complimentary?

I know it is rude to do so but I am in college and poor. My dad is turning 50 and loves Mexican food. I am going to throw him a surprise birthday party a local Mexican Restaurant. I know our friends won't care because they invite us out to eat for parties all the time, and I have to pay. It is a mutual agreement. My question is 'how to put it on the invites for some of his older friends that may not know whether it will be payed for or not'? Like for example, do I put "dinner not complimentary" or what? I hate to do it like this, but it's the only thing besides fishing that he loves. I would do it at my house, but my dog is rude, and hates strangers. So it has to be in public but our park is under recon. As you can probably tell, I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place. LOL Thanks for all help.

(Modified for 14 people)

Pot roast:
10 lb chuck roast
4 pkg lipton onion soup mix, dry
5 can cream mushroom soup, campbells (or 2 family size one)
5 celery stalks, diced
4 onions, diced
7 whole carrots, peeled and cut
8 potatoes, peeled and cut in 1/4
5 crushed garlic clove
7 tbsp flour

1 Reynold's slow cooker liner, optional
If using a large slow cooker, a liner makes cleaning up a snap!

If no slow cooker, use a large oven safe pot, add the can of cream mushroom soups, 5 additional cans of water, the lipton dry soups, flour and mix the ingredients well with a wisk.

Add the roast and the garlic. Mix around til covered with soup mix. Add the onions and veggies.

If using a crock pot, Add water to barely cover the veggies (remember the water level may go up during cooking!).
Cover and turn crock pot to med/low. Cook 6-8 hours and it will be so tender!

If using a oven safe pot, put in oven covered (with lid or foil) at 325 degrees. Cook for 3 hours. Check on roast. When pierced the juices should run clear. You can test it by slicing the middle. If not ready, cook uncovered for 30-45 more minutes.

5 avocadoS, ripe, peeled and diced
6 bunch cilantro, finely diced
5 large tomato diced
3 cabbage, sliced and diced
2 cup diced celery (or a whole bunch of celery)
3 brown onions, diced
3 fresh jalapenos, seeds removed then diced
salt/pepper to taste

In a large bowl - Add the cabbage, then the cilantro, tomato, celery / onion, jalapeno and a dash of salt/pepper.
Add the avocado then 3 big spoonful of mayo or just enough to moisten to your taste. Mix well. Chill for 1 hour and serve cold

3 pkg large jello, same flavor
2 tub coolwhip
fresh fruit

In a non metalic bowl, prepare the jello as on the package but use 1/2 cup less water per package.
Add fresh fruit like fresh strawberries, grapes, chopped apples. Let it gel for 6 hours. Mix up the jello and add 1 tub of cool whip. Add more if desired. Mix well, and its like an ambrosia.

Put the mix in a glass, and top with more fresh fruit or coolwhip.

How do I gracefully decline a dinner invitation?

Well, if it is set for a specific day, then I would say unfortunately we are already planning something with the family.
Family works good, because it is hard to verify, and people don't get offended.

If it is an open invitation, then it is best to just be upfront, and tell them, that you are not interested.
Or you can try and work out your differences.
There is also no shame, in obliging them, and going to one dinner, you may find out that they are ok people.

English Grammar – TO & FOR - this video tells us that -Benefit/good is involved - use ‘for’Transfer/exchange is involved - use ‘to’But there are multiple forums saying that to and for can be used interchangeably.Some examples -I arranged this dinner party and invited her over for the same (the same refers to dinner party i.e noun)I was invited for delivering a lecture at St. Thomas University (passive construction, for+verb+ing)I was invited to deliver a presentation at that Museum (passive construction, to + verb + object)I made this breakfast and invited her over to eat it (to is followed by ‘eat’ i.e. verb)I was invited to a dinner party last night (to is followed by ‘a dinner party’ i.e. noun)Let the context decide.

Rehearsal dinner accidental invitation?

Hi Everyone

I was sending out invites for my upcoming wedding rehearsal dinner, and I accidentally included someone who is not really in the wedding party (they are just doing sound and video), what is the appropriate thing to do- Because I didn't invite the other sound guy (we have one guy doing video and one guy doing sound as they can't do both together and it is on opposite ends of the church), and he RSVP "Yes", but I didn't invite the second sound guy, so I can either invite him as well (and put the amount of people over 12 like i originally told my mom and dad, who are paying for the wedding), or I can somehow uninvite the original accidental invitation? Thanks for input..

PS the way I "accidentally" did it, was I sent out invites via Facebook and his name got inadvertently checked------- Thanks for any help!!

Or, I will be attending a workshop or seminar on (fill in the date). Get some of your friends together and comeThen you make absolutely certain that you are there and you make absolutely certain your bring a great friend with you who will vounch for you.Never be alone with these persons.
