I think it’s no secret here that I love to throw dinner parties. I love the chance to experiment with food and wine, impress friends and treat my guests. And it would seem that I am not alone! Terry’s Fabrics recently conducted a survey of 1,500 people to see why and how they throw dinner parties and I am just loving the results!!
It would seem a Dinner Party is not all about the food and drink!
I’m totally guilty of throwing a dinner party or two for a specific reason… a big announcement or to show off my new decor and I’m not the only one! Have you ever done this?
And I have totally lied to James about the cost. Not so much on the food and drink, mostly on the styling… something I LOVE to do for dinner parties. [ And maybe my outfit! ]. Please say you’ve done this with your SO too?
Guests have a lot to live up to!
The results of the survey, in the below infographic, really put a lot of pressure on the guests and not just the hosts! This is where some of you might find my recent post ‘How to be the perfect dinner party guest’ useful!
The right compliments to your host could mean the difference between a big slice or dessert or a decent pouring of wine. Or maybe [ shock horror] no invite the next time!
What are you ‘guilty’ of?
Go on, tell us in the comments below, what are you ‘guilty’ of doing at or for your dinner parties?
