Since discovering the beautiful book Bread & Wine, the images I conjure around dinner have taken a whole new direction. If you've been reading for any amount of time, you already know I'm a sentimentalist to a fault. If an emotional tie can be made, I'll be the first one to feel it. Because of that, I've been inspired to first, have dinner parties and second, make them memorable. Now that we'll be closer to our family, and because I'm determined to put myself out there first thing and make some friends (let's hope I still am this motivated once we get there!), I'm hoping to eventually have plenty of people to invite over for long nights of warm hugs, delicious food, refills of sweet wine, and stories that make us snort with laughter or cry over the memories.
Needless to say, I've been inspired! And what is a good dinner party without amazing decor? I've been pinning up a storm this week with ideas for how I'd love my dinner parties to be decorated- everything from table settings to outdoor lighting. One can dream, right?

Do you and your loved ones do long dinner parties? Or are you for more of a "do something" type of hang out?
