Whats your favorite kind of party to host?

Do you love planning sit down dinner parties? Having a BBQ with close friends? Do your prefer having everyone over for a sports one ala the Super Bowl? Is it Thanksgiving or another holiday? Is a big fancy brunch?

What do you love and why? What inspires you?

If your terrified of hosting a meal, if it gives you anxiety and overwhelms you tell us about that too.

Me? I love hosting parties and nothing excites me more than planning a great dinner party. From sit down multi course meals to having friends over for dinner and movie on Saturday night nothing makes me happier. From the menu planning, the shopping and the cooking it all gets me going. I am known for having a "signature" cocktail at my parties and that is fun to come up with too.

I also love planning holiday meals. I usually get to host my two favorites-Easter and Thanksgiving. What inspires me about these meals is finding ways to do the traditional but adding a twist.

Oh and the table settings! I have been collecting great things related to the holidays that make my holiday table special. Any time I have friends for dinner it a great excuse for me to break out the "good" china and silver, the fun linens, to splurge on flowers and make my dining room shine.
