Preparations are underway for the big work party this weekend. I really hope we can get the houses down the drop and roll them into position. And I really hope we get the appropriate weather for it.
I hope to get up there for Friday morning and get some more tent spaces levelled out, as well as the hexagonal party marquee erected (for the first time, I hope it’s all there.) I got a couple of metres of some fantastic plastic tablecloth in a delicate lace print, so I’m planning to set up a cake station in the style of ridiculous vintage lace and broderie anglaise.
I have found that you can never do too much baking in advance of these parties. Today I’m going to sit down with my ever-expanding library of baking books and choose 5 or 6 wonderful high-sugar energy sources to have on hand at all times.
Keeps the workforce happy!
