Pippa Middleton's posh Bonfire Night ideas

If you've always wanted to know how to make perfectly posh party snacks for a wintery Bonfire Night, Pippa Middleton has come up with a few sizzling ideas to keep you warm on a cold November night...

Her sister’s in line to be the Queen one day, and her parents run a party planning website, so who better to dish out posh party advice than Pippa Middleton. Her new book Celebrateis chock full of tips for parties all year round, but with Guy Fawkes waiting just round the corner, we love some of the ideas she has for Bonfire Night. 

With everything from the very basic – how to build a bonfire and make your Guy – to arranging outdoor lighting and seating (though where you’re supposed to get a bale of hay from if you live in town is beyond us) she’s got it all covered. And of course she’s included tips on health and safety – make sure you read those. There are some fab recipes that are perfect for a cold evening watching the fireworks – we’re sure that things like honey and mustard sausages, tomato soup and toffee apples will go down a storm with everyone, no matter what their age. And we can just imagine William and Kate chowing down on a Shepherd’s Pie Baked Potato, yum. There’s even a recipe for Parkin (yes, we had to look that up too). Apparently it’s a ginger cake that hails from the north of England and is traditionally eaten on Bonfire Night. For activities, why not get everyone playing a game of Sardines, having conker fights or setting off sky lanterns. And keep warm both inside and out with some spicy drinks – Spiced Apple Warmer for the tots and Toffee Vodka or Winter Pimm’s for the grown ups. Chinchin!
