Preparations for the Party

Whatever the party occasion, you have to prepare for it, don’t you? Well, our party isn’t a birthday party, rather a ‘Hallow – Fawkes’ celebration, to take place in our woodland and on our terrace, the day after ‘All Hallows Eve’ That’s pretty much the theme, one of fancy dress for the children and Dadda’s devilled wings for all, plus a few flappy, batty wings at dusk from our local bat population. Something to surprise everyone I hope.

We have a tiki torch lit, sleepy hollow in the woods with a bonfire and plenty of seating for marshmallow toasting and copious amounts of hot chocolate for all. I think that around 30 children plus 30 adults need to be catered for and aside the devilled chicken wings, the children’s menu will consist of hotdogs and home made crispy wedges. I believe Sally, our nanny Sindy’s sister, will be bringing her homemade Halloween cupcakes for dessert.

As for the grownups, three pasta sauces and two pasta choices, of course, all homemade, the sauces that is, not the pasta! And I think for the grownups, a dessert of pumpkin pie, made with Dadda’s ‘Ginger and Pumpkin’ Jam, of all things. Recipe to follow…
