A Dinner Party Conversation

“If you could invite five guests — dead or alive — to a dinner party, who would you invite?”

I’m sure you’ve probably heard this question at some point in your life — a networking event, icebreaker in class, on a date, etc. In my 2018 Reading Round-Up post, I mentioned that the book  The Dinner List by Rebecca Serle inspired me to write this post because I think it’s such a fascinating notion. I have heard it before, but my answer changes vastly every time I hear it.

In the book, the main character Sabrina, finds herself face-to-face with people from her past, her best friend, and Audrey Hepburn when she walks into her 30th birthday dinner. This leads to her having some serious revelations throughout the evening. As with any dinner party, I debated going one of two ways with this post — the fun route or the serious route — as I have several people I’d love to extend a theoretical invite to. While I thoroughly enjoyed Sabrina’s story, I’d like to think my fantasy dinner party would be a little more fun and upbeat. After all, we can’t take life too seriously!

Guest #1 would be Andy Cohen. If you know me at all, you know that I’m obsessed with everything Bravo! Seriously my mom and I have watched Real Housewives since day 1, so I basically grew up on it. Every time I watch Andy on the RH reunions (or any other Bravo show reunion), I can’t help but think how incredibly funny, smart, and patient he is. Additionally, he knows how to get a conversation going, and keep it flowing. All of these traits, in my humble opinion, add up to the perfect dinner party guest.

My second guest would be Kate Middleton. She is my top fashion/beauty icon, and I admire how caring and philanthropic she is.  I feel as though Kate would {literally} bring to the table a ton of great conversations. I mean think about it: she’s well-traveled, impeccably dressed, and who wouldn’t want to know what goes on behind the walls of Kensington Palace?

Lady Gaga is guest 3! I have been a fan of Gaga’s since she first came on the scene with “Just Dance” circa 2008, and she’s been in my list of top favorite artists since then. I swear hearing her sing Speechless acapella at her concert I attended my junior year of high school was a near-religious experience. Not only is she incredibly talented, but she has one of the biggest hearts. She’s one of those artist whom I am constantly in awe of her artistic talents and she always keeps everyone guessing what will come next.

Of course I have to invite my celebrity crush since I was 13, Zac Efron. I mean, when else would I have the opportunity to meet him! Based on a number of his recent films, it sure seems like he knows how to liven up a party, even if it is a simple dinner party!

Last, but certainly not least, the final guest would be Chrissy Teigen. If you follow her on social media, or – let’s be real – if you own a tv, you know that she’s one of the funniest people in this planet. Can we also talk about how cute her children are?!?

Now it’s your turn to tell me — What five people, dead or alive, would you invite to your imaginary dinner party? Leave a comment below!
