I've just realised that this is my 100th post – wow, has that come around quickly! I should have been more organised... a giveaway or something, but no. Sorry guys... Instead, I'm posting to say I have a dinner party tonight and I'm going to be cleaning and cooking all day! And to show you my table... I always do it first so that no matter how late I'm running at the end, it's done ;) and aside from the food, well, nothing else really matters, does it?
We just love having dinner parties. I know it's tres out of vogue but we don't care. It doesn't matter that you often don't get the 'return dinner'... actually, put like that, it sounds so structured and icky - not fun at all. I just love that relaxed, fun, quality time with people you really like. And yes, the setting may be a bit formal (but that's only because I'm anal and totally love the whole theatricality of a dinner party table!) Hope you all have a fabulous Saturday night with family friends good food and yummy wine :) We'll be having the slow-cooked lamb shanks with a delicious red!
