Shoot with natural light (though difficult since a lot of times we're taking pictures of dinner and all natural light may be gone). Try and shoot with a tripod if you can. A lot of point and shoot cameras won't have fancy image stabilization like a Canon L lens or other high-end lens will. Also, pulling back and just cropping the photo later will make sure you get more of the shot in focus and you won't be fighting blurry photos.
