I’m a casual user myself; I check in every few days, mostly to browse from my phone or to pin a recipe from my food blog. The food and drink category is the most popular, so, you know, I need to keep up. And because it’s the most popular category, it was inevitable that there would be Pinterest dinner parties.
Yes, Pinterest dinner parties: dinner parties that include dishes, decor and activities found on Pinterest. It’s a thing.
Sometimes, it’s subtle. Maybe you go to a party and there’s a garlic cheesy bread and some rainbow fruit skewers. Or maybe your host has set the table with candles made from clementines, place cards attached to Mason jars, and has the whole room lit by glowsticks in balloons, with food ranging from single-serve crudites to Nutella swirl cookies. If you don't follow your host on Pinterest, but do follow on Twitter or Facebook, you'll likely know very quickly what's going on. You're at a Pinterest Party.
I haven't been to one. Yet. But several of my Twitter friends have, and one has even hosted her own. Anyone been to or hosted a Pinterest Dinner Party? If I hosted a dinner party based on my Fuds board, my guests would be eating a lot of popovers and quinoa. I'll get right on that.
