My Bonfire Night Party!











Hey guys, so today I wanted to share with you some photos from my Saturday celebrating Bonfire Night. If you're not from the UK Bonfire Night is kinda our equivalent of 4th July as it's where we celebrate the fact that a plot to blow up parliament a couple hundred years ago didn't actually work. Yay England. But more importantly it's a great excuse to throw a party, get some fireworks and have a good time.

I was actually really happy that our party managed to go ahead as in the morning it had been absolutely tipping it down with rain and there were pretty much gale force winds! However as evening drew closer the weather calmed down and we were able to light some fireworks. In all honestly I spent most of my time running around like an idiot yelling 'I need cute Instagrams!' and snapping my camera at any given opportunity. 

We started the evening around six or so, all gathered outside with bowls of homemade potato wedges, courtesy of my lovely mother. My dad was banned from the mulled wine as he was in charge of fireworks. Which ran pretty much smoothly until one firework fell over and proceeded to shoot large amounts of sparks at my house - cue lots of screaming and running around. (Fireworks are seriously so dangerous guys!) But nonetheless we had a fabulous time. 

After this we all had a go with some sparklers - I love the way these photograph and also how beautiful they look - I think this part was my favourite!

All in all I had such a lovely evening - now I can't wait for more fireworks at New Years! Do let me know in the comments how you guys celebrated Bonfire Night - I'd love to know!
