Have you heard about The IN Thing? The lovely ladies over at Cancer Research UK sent out an email to let me know about the new fundraising event.
It’s a very simple concept that works around the idea of getting together with family and friends to raise money for a worthy cause. The idea is to pick a date in November, grab a bunch of your friends and host a fun night in.
I’ve been having a little think of what I could do for mine and so far the list includes:
– Tea party with cakes, sandwiches and gin (in teacups)
– Mulled wine and mince pies
– Curry and movie night (I recommend Angel-a)
– Mexican themed dinner party (who doesn’t love tacos?)
I think that a tea party would be good. They always seem to go down well and it gives you an excuse to do lots of baking and make unnecessarily tiny sandwiches. I practiced making some fairy cakes the other day. I’d not made any in so long that I thought it would be good to do a test run. I refreshed my memory on how to make them with a recipe from BBC Food (very simple).
Do you think you will host a night in with your friends? I’m going to be hosting one in Cambridge with my mum and some of her friends.
