A party isn't a party unless there are sparklers

And a party isn't a party unless a dodgy plastic chair gives way under a guest.

And then that guest grabs the table to stop himself falling.

And then the table lurches alarmingly, sending everybody's glasses flying across the table, cascading liquid onto the floor.

However, no glasses broke!

Until later, when another guest, on his way out, banged the table and knocked off a wine balloon, sending glass shards scattering across the floor.

And a party certainly isn't a party unless the remaining guests stay until 2 in the morning, singing along to old daggy favourites on YouTube.

PS If you're wondering why I'm not holding a sparkler, it's because I am always convinced that they are going to take my eyes out. Now the secret's out.

    mmmm fair enough being scared of hot flints in your eye...and are you lot wining and dining every weekend??

  2. Nah, party season is now officially closed. Thank goodness - I'm tired of cooking for 20 odd people!

  3. The you would have been terrified of the sparklers we had at the bear's Grandads 90th this W/e. They were half a metre long!!!!!!

  4. Half a metre long? That's the stuff of nightmares!

  5. Fabulous photo.
    Another reason to be scared of sparklers: NEVER grab them when they are lit, sitting on the cake, they give horrible burns.
    Sounds like a good party!

  6. That look such a happy scene. You sure all seem to have a good time!

  7. Great photo! Sounds like a fun party.

    Hehehe - and what about the obligatory neighbour's dog barking to wake up the neighbourhood when everyone is saying their goodbyes out the front? Looks like you had a great bash!

  10. I have the balloon-pop phobia. . .all that suspense! I used to dread birthday parties when I was a kid because of it. . .will have to grit my teeth at the upcoming 4th!

  11. That looks like a lovely sparkly party!
