Retro Party Quiz, from May 2010 – guessing closed

Yesterday’s Movie Meme got me thinking about some memorable parties in fiction.  See if you can tell me what book each party is found in.  Leave the number and book title in the comments.

No copying from other commenters or googling – that’s cheating and no fun!

Here are more details and the current leaderboard.  I welcome first timers, you still have a chance to win a prize:)

1. As readers we were able to attend 2 wonderful New Year Turkey Curry Buffets.  Goofy sweaters optional. – Bridget Jones’s Diary

2. This tea party had a Hatter, March Hare, Dormouse and a girl who thought it was stupid. –Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

3. Nick watched his neighbor’s parties from afar and was entranced.  Until he was actually invited to one and realized it wasn’t as magical as it seemed from a distance. – The Great Gatsby
