Season with a Bang: Sizzling Bonfire Night Essentials

"Remember remember the fifth of November..." Funnily enough I do as the lil' rascal was only yesterday! Say whaaat?

Well my cherubs whilst the throughly British day of 'oohhing & ahhing' is over, most of us will be trudging along to firework displays this coming weekend when no work is to be found & all the fun & tomfoolery can venture out to set havoc! So it's time to wrap tight, cacooning yourself in a blanket of snuggly knits and thick socks, munch & crunch on something a little toasty, gather yourself in wonderful company and just wait for the black blanket of skies to come alive with a smattering of sparkling & shimmering fireworks! To get you all excited & ensure your night ends with a bang of bewitching memories, I've put together some essentials to truly make your night sparkle!

A Sizzling Outfit

Keep yourself snug in an outfit that not only will keep you roasting but will make you shine bright amongst the crowds. Envelop yourself in oversized jumpers, thick-knit scarves, soft furry ear-muffs & some rough-tough booties to really go out with a bang!

Potato Party

Nothing says Bonfire Night better than a feast of delicious munchies so why not invite some friends over before the big event and sink your teeth into some crunchy, sumptuous food for the soul. We’re loving the idea of a spread of salt-crusted baked potatoes foil-roasted over a roaring open fire and then piled high with a pick n’ mix concoction of tasty toppings! Feast your eyes on this for some scrumptious inspiration!

Sip on something naughty

Whether that means whipping up a flask of pipin’ hot triple chunk hot chocolate complete with whipped cream & gooey marshmallows or slurping on something laced with magic made a little stronger, get your mouth watering with temptation. Spicy hot apple cider, anyone?

Devilish delights

Complete the night with some wildy tasty treats by sparking your inner child with some delightful fun! Grab your gaggle of besties, crack open a bag of squishy marshmallows & roast them to toasty, squishy, messy perfection upon an open fire. This’ll guarantee to end your night in a fit of giggles, happy tummies & faces smudged with sticky sweet memories. 

Nestle into your woolies, snuggle up to a special someone, slurp on somethin' a wee bit naughty & watch the firefly lights dance & prance across the night skies.
