go to my parents every year for Christmas dinner, they kindly lay on all the
food and drink and we get to enjoy their wonderful hospitality. I know really that our turn is long overdue
so when this competition came along from Furniture Village with a chance to win
a dinner party package I just had to enter! If I was lucky enough to win then I could spoil them with the
sparking wine and indulgent luxury chocolates and begin to repay their kindness
and generosity. Let’s be honest my
parents are not getting any younger and its my turn to make a fuss of
hamper prize of course would certainly make it that much easier to host a
dinner party, but the biggest highlight for me would have to be the Emily
dining table and 4 cross back chairs from Furniture Village. Our current dining table is if I am honest
lacking, its been used a lot and its legs are a little wonky and the top is covered
in marks from the boys crafting experiences.
On top of that it only has three chairs as one broke and has been
replaced with a garden chair (so now you know why my dining room does not
feature on my blog!). The dining table
is pretty central to any dinner party, it should create an impact, but mine
creates it for ALL the wrong reasons.
When I eventually replace this one I will have to ban children’s crafts
within a 1-mile radius of my new table!!!
competition is simple enough to enter you just create a Pinterest board
featuring your favourite dining
table from Furniture Village along with five other products from their site
to help you set the party scene. It was
a good excuse for me to work on something current on my poor neglected
Pinterest page (I did kind of abandon it when I got addicted to
instagram!). Although this competition
is quite a lot of fun so well worth creating a Pinterest account if you do not
currently have one, as you also get to pick three celebrity guests you would
like to join you at your party! Is it
wrong that I only want eye candy there?
think it would be the dashing Hook from Once Upon A Time and Sam and Dean from
Supernatural (I think they are handy to have around in case of an emergency,
and let’s be honest my cooking is as scary as any supernatural event!). I would want a relaxing dinner not an
intellectually challenging meal, I just want to gaze into their eyes and swoon
a little! Forget asking burning
questions, I will be too busy trying to ignore my burning food… (I hope they
all like takeaway!). I would choose the Hoxton dining set its lovely, throw in lots of baileys, an open fire and a good board game and I would be in my element.
you have completed your board make sure you have filled in the form on their
website detailing why you chose those three guests and including the URL of
your Pinterest board. Good luck with
the competition, you can now see my entry here if you fancied having a nose!
