A book with a fantastic party

I couldn’t help myself but choosing The Hobbit for this week’s topic. I mean, it’s even the name of the chapter “An Unexpected Party”!

I was very pleased by the movie adaptation of this scene at Bag End, in fact it’s probably my favorite one from the whole trilogy! I always wondered how the Dwarves managed to travel with the instruments, like it’s described in the book, they might be heavy, haha.

“Chip the glasses, crack the plates!
That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates!
That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates,
So carefully, carefully with the plates!

Blunt the knives and bend the forks!
Smash the bottles, burn the corks!
That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates,
So carefully, carefully with the plates!”
– That’s What Bilbo Baggins Hates
What’s your favorite party from a book you’ve read?
