My Fantasy Dinner Party: Joining ‘By Invitation Only’


My Fantasy Dinner Party

I’ve been asked to share my fantasy dinner party.

Who would I invite?

My fantasy dinner party will be held in Italy and definitely somewhere near the water. I’d have to choose between Positano and Lake Como–each classic Italian beauties–and on my itinerary for summer travel in 2016.



My guests will arrive by water taxi.


I’ve employed a handsome driver.


We will enjoy rooftop terrace cocktails and views before dinner.


The tables are graced with candlelight


voluptuous blooms


and glowing chandeliers.


The champagne is flowing…


and I will be wearing sparkles.

My guest list:


George Clooney

I graciously invited Amal, but unfortunately she had a previous commitment.

(Pity–but this is MY fantasy after-all!)


John F. Kennedy, Jr. + Carolyn too


Princess Diana

George, John, Di and I are all roughly the same age. I think it would be fun to get the ‘birthday club’ together to see how we are all feeling about hitting the big 55 this year.


Sophia Loren – Style icon of la dolce vita.


Diane Von Furstenberg- I love her verve and her stories.

She’s a lady who dishes!


Photographer Slim Aarons to capture the magic of the party in images.



Sting- one of my favorites in concert.

He must bring his guitar but his shirt is optional.

Cutting edge chef Massimo Bottura and his wife, Lara Gilmore, owners of Bottura and Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy for unique tastes for dinner.  I’m fascinated with his culinary talents on Chef’s Table Netflix and this clip is a must see.

Of course Scott, my beloved, is my +1 for this fantasy dinner party.


And there will be dancing until the sun comes up…


George Clooney Lives Next Door?

I am so pleased to join “By Invitation Only” hosted by Marsha of Splendorosa and the other fabulous bloggers each month.

Who would YOU invite to your fantasy dinner party?

Cheers to a little fantasy ever now and then,

I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE PHOTOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WHAT A LOVELY GROUP…………………….I will be an old ITALIAN woman sitting on a park bench watching quietly LOOKING and STARING MOST LIKELY!!!


Please let me be a busboy at this event!! How amazing that would be and if only we could bring back JFK Jr.!!


OMG!!! Everything about your party is perfect. Maybe I will see you in Positano in 2016 (as we hope to be there also ;-)


Even if I were a teeny tiny fly on the wall (or pillar or post or trunk of a tree), I doubt I would ever want to leave this party!


Heather! I love this post! I agree with everyone you mentioned–and love the pictures of Clooney!:) I also loved the the Chef’s table episode with Massimo! I would love to go eat at that restaurant one day!:)


Well …… who could beat that guest list and location ?!!! Can I be number eleven at your table please Heather ? …. pretty please ?!!! XXXX


I would love to attend your fantasy party!! All the very best people and the location is to die for. Simply beautiful my friend. You go dream beautifully.


I’ll hook you up on Tuesday. My “real” computer is down and I’m using an “APPLE” which does not do anything I ask it to do. Anyway, what a stunner!! Of course, anything happening near the water in Italy s magical. Love Diane Von Furstenberg and most of the rest of your playful group, however, I’d switch George for Sean Connery in a heartbeat !!! Thank you so much for participating!!!


Oh boy, that was a fun fantasy! Your list of guests would be similar to mine, with George at the top of list! I would also like to invite Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant, and the Argintina chef Francis Millman (Netflex Chef’s Table) and Ina Garten. Sounds like a great party! Cheers!


This is my dream dinner Heather. Love everyone you asked and the setting, your wardrobe- all perfection!! I cannot believe they would all be 55, you included. Crazy. I think you look 35. xo Kim


Now that was fun!! And you must of course invite the illustrious Mr. C!!!! Great setting and style sweet heather!


Heather, you crack me up! What a lovely post! That party looks dreamy for sure! Oh, and handsome George……I hope he is a nice guy! I didn’t realize that John Jr would have been 55 or so. Boy, he was one handsome guy who seemed like a nice guy……he left us way too early and same with beautiful Diana.
How fun that Lake Como is on your itinerary for next summer! It’s on my list!
Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving!
I’m off to the frozen tundra this week to see family. If you’re in the Bay Area at all this holiday season I would love to meet for a quick drink!
