IELTS Speaking topic: A meal you invited others

Describe a meal you invited others to your home or restaurant.
You should say:
who you invited
where and when you ate this meal
what you ate
and explain why you invited the person to have a meal.

Let me tell you about the last time we hung out to dinner with friends and family during our time off. It was in the National Day when it came to my son’s birthday, on October 3rd. We threw a party to celebrate his 4-year-old birthday, and invited some of his close friends and classmates, and their parents to get together.

This meal was really a big banquet. We booked a room in a restaurant and decorated it with some flowers and balloons hanging on the wall. Then we prepared a big birthday cake and some other tasty foods like salads, biscuits and fruit juice. Besides as for adults we had some delicacies like Gong Bao Chicken, Simmer Meat, Roasted Duck. And we had noodle as our staple food because in China, long noodles are traditionally eaten by person celebrating his birthday.

I invited my son’s friends to come to dinner mainly because I wanted to enhance the friendship between them. Besides, it was a desirable opportunity to teach my son how to share his happiness and especially, how to interact with others. On top of that, admittedly, we just would like to sit down together and enjoy the tasty food.
