Eat Pray Love Luncheon

Have you seen the movie Eat Pray Love?

I thought the movie was OK. Nothing amazing, but not terrible either - but as I left the movie I thought that it would make a GREAT party theme. So after a few weeks of planning, this weekend I hosted an Eat Pray Love Luncheon.

In the movie, the main character goes to Italy, India and Indonesia, so I decided to make food from those three regions. It was a lot of fun!

I loved the book and the movie was OK...not as good as the book, but close enough.

What a wonderful idea! I've neither read the book nor seen the movie, but maybe I should just so I can have an excuse to do this!!

What a fun idea, and how lovely to have a luncheon. I never think to have people over for lunchtime, but it sounds so delightful, and then you don't have to wake up the next morning to clean!

Hello Dionne,
