Follow Friday: Party Planning

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkie and Alison can read (sorry about the outdated button but my blogger is being temperamental and it just wasn't going to happen).

Each week a myriad of bloggers answer a question that helps their readers know a little bit more about themselves. This week the question is:

If you could have dinner with your favorite book character, who would you eat with and what would you serve?

Hmmmm, this is a difficult one, just one book character at dinner? Couldn't I please, please, please have a Madhatter-esque tea party? What's that you say, this isn't actually going to happen so why the hell not manipulate the question to meet my desire to combine literary figures, teacups and tasty cakes? OK, fine. I will.

If you could have dinner a tea party with your favorite book character(s), who would you eat with and what would you serve?

Well, being a tea party I'd obviously serve the requisite tea, of all flavours (my favourite being strawberries and cream!), along with a dentist's nightmare in the shape of hundreds of cupcakes, macaroons, finger sandwiches, fairy bread and mango sorbet. We'd all be sat around a ridiculously long table that's adorned with mismatching teapots and teacups, that's actually very low to the ground so instead of chairs we sit on soft and fluffy cushions (I always have trouble finding enough chairs). Oh, and we're outside, and it's night, in a grassy clearing in a forest with big bushy trees and bushes surrounding us, adorned with fairly lights and lanterns.

Well that's the setting and the food in order, what about the guests?
It wouldn't be a tea party without the Madhatter making an appearance, so obviously he'll be here (and if the hare and the doormouse feel like stopping by they're most welcome) but along with him I'd absolutely, positively love for the following characters to make an appearance at my humble little party.

*Dumbledore - because he'd be amazing to talk to, and fun to be around.
*Luna Lovegood - because this party was designed with her in mind (can you tell?)!
*Merry and Pippin - because you know fun isn't far away with these two!
*Willy Wonka - because I think he'd get along splendidly with the Madhatter and would be great at starting party games.
*Crowley and Aziraphale - Because watching them constantly argue and pretend they're nothing alike would keep me entertained for hours.
*Jon Snow - To show him life doesn't have to be so damn serious all the time.
*Mr Wednesday - Because he's fascinating.
*Mike McGill - To show him a less seedy, but equally enjoyable side of society.

I've had to construct this list without the help of my bookshelves (I'm on holiday back up at my family's place) and I'm too lazy to google and find more book characters to add, but these all sprang to mind immediately and I think they'd make a wonderfully diverse, interesting, potentially dangerous guest list!
