But what is my favourite part of the party?
For desserts we made traditional Peanut Buttercups which always go down a storm, and an experiment, Marshmallow Crumbles from the Daily Mail. They made theirs pink and pretty. I made mine green with holly and berry sprinkles or red with a vanilla flavouring. Edible play dough, that's what it tasted like. Edible playdough. My sister in law loved them. Who knew?
But my favourite part of a party is just before the people come, when everything is ready,
The music is soft and gentle in the background, the plates piled high and everything ready to let my family and friends in.
