Does good company and the guarantee of a night of fun and entertainment float your boat? Maybe the lure of amazing food or just getting out of cooking for the evening tickles your fancy or is it the thought of spending the evening in another person’s house giving you the chance to check out their decor or get some inspiration for your own? But what about the ultimate dinner party?
What if you considered all the above and came up with a night you could remember forever?
For my wish list I’d start with the venue. As a coastal living gal, I’m never more at home than being by the sea but our British climate doesn’t guarantee us many warm summer evenings to eat al fresco, so a Californian beach house would be the ideal location.
And then there’s the guests; I can imagine that the expectation of being in the company of my dream celebs could leave me a little start struck so a soothing, laid back ambience will calm my excitement and Jack Johnson could provide that and some. Armed with his guitar he could serenade us all evening as we sat and watched the sun go down. For a giggle I would have the Top Gear team, nothing amuses me more than Richard, James and Jeremy. I’ve accepted that I’ll never see their antics on the Beeb again so one last evening of listening to their banter would be perfect and as it’s food which brings us all to the table, so to speak, I can be sure that Clarkson will behave himself.
Now I was a little apprehensive about my last guest given that I’ve just invited the above, but as I’m attempting to clean up my eating habits and live a healthier life, I’d like Ella Woodward, creator and writer of cook book and blog, deliciously Ella to come and cook for us. I though long and hard about this and decided that as she’s a bit of a looker, the man folk may overlook the fact that there was no meat on the menu but given that this is MY ultimate dinner party I can be utterly selfish.
And then there’s the boring bit, the tidying up. As we have obviously gatecrashed someone’s beachfront home, we’ll have no choice but to tidy up after ourselves but luckily I’ve been sent some Finish products to use so pending customs clearance, I’d pack my bundle of dishwasher goodies to do the job so no one gets left doing the washing up.
