This mix does much to add to the ambiance of a dinner party without taking over. This dinner party playlist has a cool mix of music from all eras, genres, some which might inspire after-dinner dancing or singing.

I created this playlist to go along with my plan for hosting weekend guests. So there are enough songs to last the entire weekend—so throw it on shuffle and let it act as a mood-enhancing fix. Keep this mix on in the background while you dine, wake up and make breakfast, and drink wine into the late hours. These songs that are chilled and downtempo, some funny, some will bring back memories, but all will uplift the mood.
