House Party Essentials
While the declining temperatures and darkening days of Autumn mark the end of al fresco fun in the summer sun, they also herald the start of the house party season proper: Guy Fawkes follows hot on the heels of Halloween, and once the anarchy of Black Friday and Cyber Monday have been safely traversed, you're staring down the festive barrel of Christmas and New Year entertaining quicker than you can say bah humbug!
Fortunately one of our company mottos at Lucky Voice is 'Live happy. Spread happy' and with that in mind we've compiled a list of house party essentials to make sure your next shindig is one the whole street will remember.
Fun snacks are a great way of distracting from the fact you aren't actually very good at cooking. These seasonal showstoppers will get tongues salivating and wagging in equal measures...
These creepy 'eyeballs' are crazy easy to make: just poke a blueberry into a lychee and add a liberal douse of red food colouring or raspberry jam to create a spooky snack that's relatively good for you.
No matter what age you are, toffee apples are the absolute bomb diggity. These chocolatey gems are a doddle to make, and with a few sugar stars sprinkled liberally on top, a great Guy Fawkes Night gobstopper.

These bad boys are a superb secret weapon in the arsenal of parents trying to trick their kids in to actually eating fruit over Christmas. Just pop a lolly stick through half a banana, a marshmallow and a strawberry, chuck on a bit of facial detailing with chocolate and a red M&M and you're good to go.
It's always good to have a spot of entertainment ready to distract unruly children/grandparents and navigate lulls in conversation...
