So when I was challenged by Anthropologie to blog about my 'ultimate dinner party', I couldn't help but get a little excited just thinking about it. To me, Autumn and Winter are the ultimate times to hold a cosy family get together. So, dig out your best party frock, and pack your appetite and a pair of slippers for later...

For me, an Autumn or Winter dinner party has to be cosy - candles burning, fairy lights strung around, comfy places to sit and thoughtful, welcoming details. I love the idea of interspersing nature with homely touches - the place settings and centrepieces made from wreaths or tree branches are lovely.
Of course one of the most fun things about hosting or attending a dinner party, can be choosing the perfect party outfit. As usual, anthropologie also have some pretty lust-worthy dresses for the party season - currently majorly coveting that embroidered neoprene shift - so fab.
One more little exciting element of the #anthrodinnerparty campaign is that you could win £100 in Anthropologie vouchers just by tweeting that you love my dinner party ideas! To be in with a chance of winning the vouchers just tweet:
