Second Blogger Meet-Up Nude Dinner Party

Well the day is finally here. Tonight almost forty of my blogging friends will converge on my home and hopefully enjoy a mostly organic meal in their most organic selves. The table is set including place cards for seating, the music has been chosen and and the host is mentally preparing for a houseful of guests. Last year a few people felt a little uncomfortable with total nudity so this year the lighting has been altered and candles will be the only light in the dining room. Furthermore if you are not happy with your menu, there will be plenty of food to choose from everyone elses main course but I do hope you are pleased.

Most of you know that I love cooking and that is the basis for this faux dinner party. Since the first dinner party I threw went so well I wanted to have yet another one. It would have been nice to invite everyone from last time and all the new friends, however not everyone is still blogging and not everyone still visits here regularly. Let’s not focus on the past though. Enjoy this evening to the fullest. If you were not a regular visitor here when I decided to do this last December but you would like to join in; feel free. Your menu will be the Unexpected But Invited Guests. Keep in mind that this is a nude party but do not take it seriously. It’s just a little bit of fun.

Dinner Conversation

Since we are obviously not really getting together, I thought it might be fun if we simulated dinner conversation. If you don’t mind (and in keeping with the spirit of fun and fellowship), share two things below in the comment section that might come up in casual dinner talk between we bloggers. If you can think of at least two things about yourself that you have never shared with your blog readers, please enlighten us here. Inquiring minds want to know. Maybe what you think of might only come up after a few glasses of wine! Think carefully.

Many thanks for humoring me and coming to the dinner my friends! In lieu of a mini blogging conference when we wake up tomorrow you will be treated to February’s guest blogger, Mai Mergili. Mai’s post is about her passion for photography and fashion. Enjoy!

Official Dinner Invitation Plus Dessert Menu

I’m still working diligently on putting together all the menus but I wanted to pause to give the official invite list. These are the people who I consider friends and attended the 2010 dinner or have frequented this blog and commented in the last six months of last year and did not request to have their names removed from the invite list. If your name is here and you don’t want it, let me know. If it is not here and you would like to feast with us, let me know that too. Let Tom know. Sorry if I don’t know your last name.

Dinner Party Invitation

So I’ve been working on the menus and decided that since cupcakes are so popular or en vogue, I would just make several varieties and let the last course be buffet style. You can have as few or as many as you like. I’ve been practicing with my decorating skills! Here are four of your dessert choices. Cookies and cream, Vanilla with Strawberry Preserves topped with Vanilla Strawberry Buttercream, Chocolate Caramel Cupcake topped with Vanilla Buttercream, Caramel Drizzle and Pomegranate Seeds. I hope this whets your appetite and you are still looking forward to dinner.

Blogger Meet-Up Nude Dinner Party

Blogger Meet-Up Nude Dinner Party

April and I were talking last night (November 13th) about entertaining a few of her co-workers. We haven’t had a dinner party in a while and we talked about who we would invite and what the menu would be. Trying to always have my blogger’s hat on, I wondered what menu I would prepare if I had a Blogger Meet Up Dinner Party and the guests went native — nude like us?

What if I invited everyone on my blog roll to dinner and prepared a dish especially for each blogger. Needless to say I don’t know anyone’s favorite food, whether someone hates vegetables or is allergic to a specific food; but I thought it might be fun to see what I could come up with and what your response would be. Be honest about what I have prepared for you and don’t worry, cameras and cell phones not permitted.

There are now 27 eligible invitees so I needed to come up with 28 individual menus. I also included an menu for people who might be added to the blogroll between now and then. Coffee, tea, beer, wine and champagne might not be written on the menus, but rest assured they will be present. The dessert course will be a choice of several items served buffet. After dinner we will be seeing a movie. Any requests?

This is just fun for me. You know I love cooking so don’t take this seriously. I doubt anyone would show up for my Nude Dinner Party if it were real anyway! However, if you were to show up, it’s a good idea to arrive with clothes on! There are plenty of nosy neighbors plus it’s very cold in December. Separate safe changing areas would of course be provided and don’t worry, April and I most definitely prepared your food fully clothed! Please enjoy this formal candlelight dinner.

If you were added to the blogroll before I started creating this post as well as the one on November 16th, and don’t see your name on the list below, please click on the Unexpected But Invited Guests (that includes you Catherine).

For all other blogroll members, click on your name to see the menu prepared especially for you, remove your clothing and have a seat  →
