What if you would like to organize a dinner in your new home? What if you are a terrible chef? Plus your budget is shoestring budget? (dpn't worry you are in good company)
First of all if you have a friend that is a creative chef ask her/his help and invite her/him to your dinner... then plan a seasonal menu, buy local and prepare atmosphere with some Diy work.
As you know I recently bought a copy of Ecocucina book by Lisa Casali and there is section in the end for complete menu at really affordable prices-between 1 and 3 euro and you will use almost every part of food.

This is been a very amazing discover!!! Then using web ou can find several cheap ideas to copy
However turning back to dinner on a shoestring budget, yes it is possible... and here some tips to enjoy the event...
- Decide who you really want to invite
- Plan menu ahed, open your cabinets and do grocery shopping list with a brain ( aka don't overspend and choose seasonal and local)- Please don't ask to your guest to prepare something, youìll organize everything (thihs is been a long conversation between me and girls)
- If you're good in Diy prepare something to create a special atmosphere
- Enjoy the event
