I'm creating a dinner party for 12 people to celebrate our upcoming 25th anniversary, which also happens to take place on 12/12/12 this year. It will be elegant but fun (little black dresses, shoes optional) with a French-inspired menu of winter comfort food paired with champagne. With a spectacular croquembouche to finish!
