Dinner Party Invitation

I have been invited to a dinner party at a friends place. Two friends live in the same building and they are catering food and hired Magicians, Clowns and a DJ. I know it sounds like a big party but is not... In fact, we are only 18 people invited... No, they dont live in a house the dinner party will take place at the buildings lounge which is really really nice..

So I guess my question is what to bring? I cant bring wine they just got married and had a ton of wine left.

Thank you!

      Ahhh- the champagne truffles!

      A lovely box of high end chocolates (be it maison du chocolate, kee's, teuscher...) is a perfect hostess gift regardless of the occasion

        Something from that site might help them make the best of the stash they have from the wedding! Even if it isn't used at the dinner party itself....

      2. what to bring? bring my daughter! She'd love magicians and clowns! =)

        1. Hey pbjluver Thanks for the advise but as I mentioned on my post my friends have a ton of wine left from the wedding. Thanks anyways

          1. I don't know if you have time to mail order, and I know I sound like a broken record recommending this olive oil all the time, but the smoked olive oil from La Tienda is just delicious. Great for dipping bread or as a finishing oil.


            And it solves the problem of the hosts wondering if they should put out the gift during the immediate party. Get two bottles for them and two for yourself because they will want a second and you will, too, once you taste it!
