Dinner Party: A Meal Fit for a Princess

At the expense of being traditional, I thought it was only fitting to host another little gathering for princesses especially; there’s always that one scene where they eat on gold plates. And besides, even if a princess ain’t fancy she still gotta eat—am I right?

Let’s reiterate the rules: there are twelve seats. (And, if you were curious, this is the amount of people we can seat the dining room table in my home.) ONE seat has to be reserved for me, the hostess, the other eleven chairs are up for grabs. This time, my guests will include princesses and their escorts—let’s hope they can all show up!

Princess Tiana (The Princess and the Frog)—Other than her can-do kind of attitude and pleasant company, we just know she’s going to bring something delicious to the table. I’m not gonna say no to that.

Prince Naveen (The Princess and the Frog)—Speaking of delicious things Tiana will be bringing to the table…

Sansa Stark (A Song of Ice and Fire)—So I don’t know where exactly Sansa lies in the royalty spectrum, but she is of noble birth, and I have some questions for that girl, so I guess she’s just gonna have to come.

Ex-Princess Cimorene (The Enchanted Forest Chronicles)—If you’ve never met Cimorene, then I guess you’re just living with this absence of awesome in your life… She’ll be a blast.

King Mendanbar (The Enchanted Forest Chronicles)—Mendanbar is the ex-er of Cimorene’s princessness, and other than the spousal invitation, he’s also an honorable kind of guy.

Princess Rapunzel (Tangled)—Rapunzel is among my favorite princesses, not just because she is an interesting character study, but because she is real and she is undaunted.

Flynn/Eugene (Tangled)—Let’s be serious. Why would you not want this guy at your table? He is one of my favorite characters. Ever.

Princess Allie (Dissonance)—You don’t know her yet, but I’ve been beta-ing this book and I figure three or four read-throughs makes us practically family. She’s on the list.

Tyson (Dissonance)—Tyson is Allie’s commando familiar brother-ish dude who is also English and fun to yell at. I can neither confirm nor deny that Allie might have only been invited so that Tyson could be her escort.

Princess Odette (The Swan Princess)—Odette lives kind of this strange example of real life that is occasionally disrupted by evil magicians. Like, she has trouble with her betrothed, and they get married, but then there’s more problems with her and Derek, and then it’s like her mother-in-law wants grandbabies, so I feel like she deserves the honor of sitting at my table.

Prince Derek (The Swan Princess)—He’s a bestselling author, you know. How to Offend Women in Five Words or Less. Brilliant. I’d love to know where he gets his material.

I’m also gonna give a shout out to Simba and Kiara, who were also on my list, but it turns out my mom has a rule about lions in our house. Oh well!

And that’s a wrap! Just imagine, the royalty, the finery, the dresses. Oh yuck, the dresses. Guess I’ll just have to endure. To the feast!

So, what about you? If you were inviting princesses (and pals) to your table, who would get an invite?


  1. Ooh, I like this one. And Odette and Derek are on there! Most people don't pick that movie for anything favourite. I love it! I'd definitely have Flynn on there too. He would be so much fun!

    1. I love "The Swan Princess"! I mean, it's not my favorite movie, but the fact that Odette is willing to turn out the guy she's in love with because she knows she needs more from him? Yes, please.

      And yeah, I love Flynn too! (Never Eugene. Just never.)

  2. Hmmm...I think I'd defiantly like to have Tiana and Flynn, haha. As for other princesses that you didn't mention...I wouldn't mind having Belle and some real British monarchs like Victoria and Albert (are they allowed or only fictional people?)

    1. Belle would be a great guest to invite! It would be fun to have a good book talk with someone for once. :) And Victoria and Albert would be totally welcome! I personally would be curious to talk to King Charles II, but seeing Victoria and Albert together again would be just as fascinating.

  3. I am definitely writing this dinner party. It has to happen. XD *so thrilled*

    1. XD Well if you do, then I am totally wanting to see what happens next!


Check it out, comments and stuff. I love to hear from readers, and I always respond to commenters! Here's the fun part—if you leave a link to your blog I'll show up and comment back. I have just one rule down here: Don't Be a Problem. This spans the entire umbrella of rudeness and crudeness, so I reiterate: Don't Be a Problem. Thanks for stopping by!
