Today I hosted my annual Intimo party – Intimo being my favourite lingerie brand.

You guys, their bras are brilliant.

It was my proper first afternoon tea party since we moved and I baked up a storm for my ten guests.

I made my finest batch of chocolate cupcakes with milk chocolate frosting (as in, it has melted milk chocolate in it – seriously delicious)

I made mini meringues – some plain and some chocolate. My first time making these and was impressed by how well they turned out – crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside (promise to share the recipe tomorrow)

I went for some traditional party fare too; dips, cheese, chippies

Have you ever been to lingerie party? It’s like Tupperware for your boobs. I’ve been going to (and hosting) Intimo parties for the last 12 years or so and love the brand. More than anything it’s a good excuse for catching up with friends and eating up a sugar storm.

Party plans like Intimo and Tupperware can freak people out with the perceived pressure to buy wares, but I always make a point of making sure my friends don’t feel like they have to buy. I never listen to my own advice and I ended up buying way too much. (I’m considering it a belated birthday present for myself).

I’m still coming down from the sugar rush and I’m exhausted from all the housework I did to get our place in some form of order (no easy task when we still haven’t finished unpacking).

I think I’ll leave the washing up for tomorrow.

Do you do lingerie parties?

  1. Those cupcakes and meringues look yummo!!! I went to a few Ann summers parties in the uk, but they were a bit tacky really as they werent just lingerie :-) I love intimo though!!!

    1. Oh I’ve heard about Ann Summers! Didn’t realise they did party plan, not surprised that they’d be tacky

  4. I haven’t! But I’d go if I was invited. I’d heard how good this range is and I think it would be fun.

    What a delicious spread you put on, Rah. Oh god, no pun intended!!!! x

    1. ha, I’ll still take that as a compliment about both types of spreads ;)

      Maybe Intimo needs to get into some blogger outreach? A blogger Intimo party would actually be fun I reckon

  5. I’m so glad that you served the regular stuff like chips. I love cupcakes etc but there’s nothing quite like a good crinkle cut chip! :)

  7. Oh I am so so so sorry about this one Spunky. I am totally bummed I missed it. I was in a bit of a predicament because of course I would have had the boys with me… BUT had planned to try and pop by for a few minutes (and take them to the park as part of the bargain!). Then I wasn’t well either and the rained poured and poured down on Sat. Sounds like a raging success though and it’s probably better I wasn’t clogging up your place… with ten other guests there!
    Your sweets look fantastico! xoxo

    1. oh j, no problem at all I swear! I know how hard it is to wrangle two boys when you’re trying to work to a schedule at the best of times! xo
