Lets Party

Hello friends


First I need to welcome new follower John Grey. Nice to have you join us.


I'm joining Mum over at Simply Living in her virtual party today. Hope the rain stops soon.



I've brought a couple of guests that I found hanging around near the Blackpool Tower. Between you and me I think they missed the "Strictly Come Dancing " bus back to London last week.  Dame Shirley says she will provide the entertainment whilst Darcy said she would lead the dancing, Hope she's not got her score paddles with her.

I've brought a Victoria Sandwich with fresh cream, a few flaked almonds and blueberries. Will go nice with a nice cup of tea or even some Muscat wine.



 My lolly tree has been very popular in the past so I've made another. These are great especially if there are children or teens at a party. We went to a wedding in the summer and they had a sweet trolley with all kinds of sweets.
It's very easy to make this tree. I painted a clay pot with acrylic paint. I stuffed the inside with a piece of polystyrene. Next I uses a piece of thin rigid plastic tubing and pushed it into the polystyrene. Make sure it's standing straight. For the ball on top I used a brown oasis. I tried the green but it didn't work so good. Next I pushed in the lolly sticks. You can add many more if you like so that the oasis is hidden. To cover the polystyrene in the bottom of the pot I used candy covered sweets pierced with a cocktail stick and pushed them in. This also gives a bit more stability to the pot as it can be a bit top heavy.

I've borrowed a bouncy castle from my brother. The children can play during the day and use up all their energy and then whilst they're asleep under the table their parents can play on it in the evening. Oooooh so much fun to watch especially if too many cocktails have been consumed.




And as it's nearly Christmas I've borrowed L's white Santa hat. Oh my look at those rosy cheeks, looks like I've been on the pop already. Too early yet but maybe later.




 Hope everyone else is having fun. I'll pop by later. See you soon

  1. When I've finished the delicious cake I'll rest a bit watching the children play. The energy created with the lollies and candy will stand me in good stead when I head to the bouncy castle. Now I know you've got the bottle of wine hidden behind your back so you'd better come clean and share it around. We need some Dutch courage to sing later on with Shirley and perhaps show off our dancing skills. Ooooh, we're going to party!!!!

    1. Oh you sussed me. It's a big bottle and your right, I can't drink it all by myself. Got your glasses ready, drinking glasses not eye glasses, and I will pour it.
