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.
