What makes a dinner like that even more fun? Dress up a little. Australians like to be casual, but that is why it is so much more fun when we dress up. Take it back to when our grandparents were young. Get in a dress, blow-dry your hair, wear that lipstick and play those records. Your grandparents will appreciate it.
Long gone are the days of me mischievously drinking Long Island Iced Teas at a nightclub until the early hours of the morning. Even though, y-e-s, it was fun, dinner parties with your close friends are now what I call a night out (Sorry in advance for anyone who thinks I am the epitome of boring !). Red wine, great food, even better deserts, a VERY good spotify playlist (I have got Bill Withers, Otis Redding, Fleetwood Mac and Frank Sinatra on repeat) and your close friends.
