Tell Us: Have You Ever Had a Dinner Party Disaster?
We’re talking about dinner parties this week – dream parties, etiquette, inspiring menus – but sometimes, behind all that good stuff, there lurks the fear, or perhaps the memory, of a dinner party gone wrong. So, in the spirit of fun, confession, and perhaps learning from each others’ mistakes (and triumphs!), we’re curious: have you ever had a dinner party disaster?
Fortunately, I don’t have too many dinner party disasters in my history, but I’ll never forget the horrifying moment when I spilled all of my carefully crafted, freshly (and time-consumingly) shelled fava bean ravioli on the kitchen floor. We called for pizza. Another one of my favorite stories is my boyfriend’s and involves the time his German Shepherd stole an entire batch of mandoo (Korean dumplings) off the kitchen counter. (What is it about dumplings?!)
So, tell us: have you ever experienced a dinner party disaster (or potential disaster)? How did you handle it?
