Dinner Party: Special Mother’s Day Edition

Welcome to another one of my {imaginary} Saturday dinner parties, where I invite celebrity guests into my home. This month is special because it’s Mother’s Day is next Sunday. So today’s blog post is extra special because it features some of my favorite celebrity mother-daughter duos. I really think my mother would enjoy having dinner with these wonderful and inspiring women, sharing a meal with them, and exchanging stories about raising strong, independent, smart, and sassy daughters.

The resemblances in these mother-daughter duos are uncanny and anyone can see why the acting bug didn’t fall far from the tree. You can also see, from the photos below, that these daughters {no matter how mature (old) they get}, still love their mothers.

Dinner with these ladies would be a mix of fruit, veggies, and protein. I would have some fresh veggies and fruit to munch on as my guests arrived with some cocktails and “mock”-tails {for those like myself who don’t drink} on hand prior to all of us sitting down to a kind of free-for-all fresh salad and veggies, with sides of beef, chicken, and shrimp to top their salads if they would like. I know some ladies may not eat meat, so they can fill up on salad and fresh fruit.

After dinner, I would enjoy just sitting around and listening to funny or heart-warming stories from each of these mothers and daughters. I would want to ask each of them the following questions:

  1. If you weren’t an actress, what would you do as a career?
  2. What is your fondest memory as a mother or as a daughter?
  3. What makes you laugh? Or cry?
  4. What was the last movie you saw that made you laugh and what was the last movie that made you cry?
  5. What is the one piece of advise you would tell your younger self now, if you had that chance?

Then I’d have kind of a “finish this sentence” game, where I’d ask them all to answer a series of questions and then I’d ask the daughters to answer the mother’s questions and vice versa, just to see if they really do know each other. Here are some of the questions I would ask.

  1. The one thing my mom / daughter likes to say a lot is “____________.”
  2. If she had time, she would like to __________.
  3. My mom’s / daughter’s favorite vacation spot is __________.
  4. My mom and I / daughter and I really like to _______________.
  5. My mom’s / daughter’s superpower would be ___________.

What other questions would you ask these amazing mothers and daughters, if given the chance? Also, what other mother and daughters would you invite to dinner? Leave me a comment below and let me know!

Yours Truly,
