Dinner Party Boden What Olivia Did Dinner Party Boden What Olivia Did Dinner Party Boden What Olivia Did Dinner Party Boden What Olivia Did Dinner Party Boden What Olivia Did
If there's one thing I love more than a good Italian meal (there's not much, mind you)- it's eating it with my nearest and dearest, and any excuse to have people over tucking in to pizza, pasta and the works, is certainly my idea of the perfect evening in. If you know me, you'll know I will always opt for Italian food over anything (one of my friends thought I was from Italy at one point too). So, for one of my most recent contributions to the Great Boden Diaries I hosted a dinner party for some family- and put together three fail-safe hosting looks that I'd gladly wear from the kitchen to the table (and everywhere in between)!

In my post I also included my favourite easy-peasy pasta recipe that I turn to time and time again (one I picked up working at my local Italian, naturally) that you can recreate and cook for as many people as you wish! Plus, what better way to get in to the festive spirit than to invite some loved ones round for some bloody tasty treats? Bon appetite!

  20. Love each look that that blue embellished dress is to die for. I do opt of Italian most of the time, with zero Italian roots. They just know how to please everyone!

  39. You look prefect for a dinner party and it will be great if you can share the recipe as well. Actually I am also planning a small party at rental halls in Philadelphia and making food at home will help me to save a lot for the party.
