If you're lucky enough to have a family member that has a birthday in November, what could be more fitting than to arrange a firework display along with your very own back garden bonfire party!
Now that its late November you can usually pick up fireworks for a fraction of the price they were before November 5th. You can make a Guy Fawkes out of old clothes and rags that are lying around the house, and build the bonfire with wood and any old bits of rubbish that you need to clear out of the way! For many people taking a trip to the nearby tip is becoming a tedious task, the very thought of loading up the car and having to bare the stench of rubbish whilst driving along to get rid of your household waste is tiring.
This is one occasion that not throwing away your old rubbish is acceptable, in fact the more the merrier. Your children can help you to build the bonfire (watch out for any rouge items they think would be appropriate but are clearly not!) and when night fall hits, and the time comes for the celebration good old jacket potatoes served with cheese makes the perfect bonfire party food.
Sitting around the bonfire and watching a good old firework display in the back garden wouldn't be complete without serving up parkin cake (sticky ginger cake) to the bonfire party guests, and what could be more unique than good old British Parkin with a few sparkler candles on top for the birthday girl or boy to blow out! It really is true when they say it's the little things in life that matter.
