Planning the perfect party….. April 22, 2008

We always focus so much on the food, and the table, and the drinks, and the atmosphere.  But the art of planning a truly great party has to begin with the guest list.  So pretend for a moment that you’re planning what will be (for you) the ultimate dinner party.  You want conversation that will span generations and include discussions that are witty, literate, intellectual, political, and just generally stimulating in all aspects.  The participants include yourself and nine other people; living or dead, real or fictional, famous or infamous.  Be creative, and add your list in a comment.  Here’s mine………

Steven King

Erma Bombeck

Franklin D. Roosevelt

Eleanor Roosevelt

Jesus Christ

George Carlin

Maya Angelou

Benjamin Franklin

Leonardo da Vinci

 

Can’t you just imagine some of the conversations??  C’mon now….its your turn!  😀

Ooooh….great list, Deanna! I’d like to pencil my name in on your guest list, too! 😀

4. DChase - April 22, 2008

I wouldn’t mind a pencil in on your list either my dear.

5. Lisa Liddy - April 22, 2008

I didn’t see my name on either list!!!! (I’ll do the dishes)

6. Kaye Husko - April 22, 2008

dang, where is my name!

oh ok, what about Robin Williams??

7. angieland - April 22, 2008

I’d never hide you in the kitchen, Lisa! How about bartending instead. 😀

Oooooh…he’d be a great one, Kaye! Now who are your other eight??

8. DChase - April 22, 2008

lol Angie, I told Lisa she could be the wine steward.

9. DChase - April 22, 2008

I’m afraid Robin might dominate the convo too much…have you ever seen him in an interview situation?

10. angieland - April 23, 2008

Good point, D. But there would definitly never be a lull in the conversation! 😀

11. Kaye Husko - April 23, 2008

my eight would be

Jesus Christ
Marna Hartjen
My mom
Her mom…I never met her..the above three and next one are all people I lost, that I would like to be able to talk to again
My brother Ronnie, who died when I was 13 and he was almost 18

I wouldn’t want all famous people…just people who in my heart I would like to talk to ….

I will have to think on some of the others…
