"By Invitation Only" for NOVEMBER, A Fantasy Dinner Party

International Blog Party
we are a bit off schedule because of the holiday season's arrival,
& we wanted to celebrate along with all of our readers....
the fearless leader thought it would be FUN to once again host a
there were ONLY 2 rules...
cannot invite anyone in your own family, except your partner, of course,
& we cannot invite Jesus (that's just too easy, isn't it?)
so, we are to invite TEN 10 INDIVIDUALS,
living or dead,
real or fantasy.
for me, there are 2 people who are always invited, they are at every table I set because they would add so much to the conversation, I think, and they are iconic figures...
this year some of the invitees are quite different than they were 4-5 years ago when we did
this same post.  of course, they would be different as so much has happened.
but, each one of them is much admired and invited because they each bring something
different to the table.
MICHAEL WEISS (political commentator)
TINA (of the Enchanted Home)
BOB DYLAN (always)
KING ARTHUR (always)
I would have invited Peter O'Toole also,
can you even imagine a more gifted conversationalist?
& look up Michael Weiss, he's brilliant.

I'm in the hill country of Texas with my daughter, Vanessa, & her family for a few days.
My little grandson, Colt Harris is a little over 2 years & he's a complete pistol!!!
So we have 5 dogs, 2 2-year olds, and the adults for an early Thanksgiving.
They are all going out of town to visit faraway family members & I'll be back in
Houston to Thanksgiving AGAIN with my friends & family there.
love to all

I think I would have to include Sean Connery as well. You all know how very interesting he is.

Angelica Domato said...

Francois Hollande? Why him? I heard he is a good conversationalist, but I don't think this is the reason you chosed him.

The enchanted home said...

Bravo for including our French president! What an interesting mix you have chosen Marsha.

A brilliant collection of interesting people Marsha ...... it's so important to get the mix right, in't it ? It's just a shame that our dinner parties will never happen in real life .... still, we can imagine ! XXXX

Interesting list. I'd add Gloria Steinem and Winston Churchill. Just because.

Olivia Pope, King Arthur, Jack Sparrow, Jane Fonda... I'm cracking up! That's a party to forewarn the neighbors about, for sure!

Fantastic list!! I'll join Jen at your table! I wrote a post but have not been able to add my URL via iPhone today. We are traveling in wine country right now. If you can add it that would be super. Thanks so much for the invite-loved the topic! Happy Thanksgiving Marsha! Xx

Marsha Splenderosa said...

Well, it's a "fantasy" isn't it? Love you !!!

Marsha Splenderosa said...

Jemimagold said...

May I add Eleanor of Aquitaine?

Elizabeth@ Pine Cones and Acorns said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you! I hope it was a wonderful day.

La Petite Gallery said...

The conversation with those quests will not be boring. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I did. Renee
had me over , her table was so elegant. Maine People do not do elegant. I felt so at home. The food was great and her stuffing was the way I make it. The weather was mild in the mid 50's that alone is something to be grateful for.
May you have a wonderful Holiday Season and be well and Happy ..Yvonne

Just loved this fantasy dinner party. Few days back had arranged a dinner party at one of venues in Chicago. It was really awesome. Had hired best chefs who prepared delicious food. All attendees loved and enjoyed the day.
