House Warming Weekend (All In My Head Of Course)

So I just bought a new home, and I'm rather proud of it.  So I thought what better way to celebrate my purchase, than by throwing an old fashioned house party.  I'm going to invite 13 of my closest friends over for the weekend, and we are going to have so much fun.  They will arrive on Thursday and be out of my hair by Monday afternoon.  It wasn't even that hard to make up the guest list really, since I plan on throwing one of these parties, at least once a month, I don't need to worry about hurting anyone's feelings.

There will be board games in the parlor, some lovely tennis matches on the clay courts, and maybe even a fox hunt or two.  Of course we aren't going to hurt the fox, what kind of person do you think I am.  We will dine on succulent feasts and regale each other with tales of adventure and love, all while sitting by one of many roaring fireplaces.  Who knows, we may even make history somehow.

So I'm assuming you are wanting to see the first guest list right now.  I know the society papers are dying to know, so you must be all giddy with excitement.  I tried to make the list as well rounded and lively as I could.  I just hope the guests all get along, though it may be nice to see a fight break out.  Maybe even get to witness a good brawl or two.  Pretty sure that won't happen, but a boy could always dream.

I know that most of you will recognize many of my friends who will be spending the weekend in my home, I just hope the jealousy doesn't eat you up inside.  Depending on how this party goes, I may even invite a few of you along to the next ones.  But until then, look at this list, and drool.

Nick & Nora Charles, Sleuthing's Premier Couple

Well this will be quite a wonderful, entertaining weekend! Watch out for Dame Agatha; I hear she has a mean backhand.

Ryan, that is an eclectic guest list although I admit there are some guests I hadn't heard of before, such as the Radio Host, Herald Mage of Valdemar, and the Tenor.

Yvette said...

Excuse me, Ryan, but where is my pix? Aren't I on the invited list? HaHA! What a terrific house warming. Be sure and write about all the goings on.

I love this idea so much I'm stealing it. I'm going to have my own house warming. Why should you be the only one to have all the fun?? :)

Owen Black said...

I just stumbled upon your guest list for your house warming. A very eclectic lot. I am sure the conversations were stimulating and there was good food and wine. I would love to hear how it went and if you have Van and Anderson over again for the weekend, may I please have an invite? I have so many questions for both of them. I am a chef by trade and promise meals that will not only taste wonderful but will appeal to all 5 senses. Nothing but the best for Van, sigh...

My friends are welcome anytime.

Owen, if you make a killer paella, you are on the guest list for next time.
