Christmas day around ours was just family, but on Boxing Day we had all our relatives around. The party was festive themed and the girls came dressed up as everything from angels, a Christmas tree, Christmas presents, elves, snowmen, Mrs Santa's and fairies.
The girls in my family all made a dish each, giving the mums a bit of a break. Everyone got creative and we had everything from goats cheese tarts, keema pastries, and cupcakes to biryani, shami kebabs, and spicy pasta. The food was so tasty and we had so much fun. Later on we had a party for just the girls, we did Secret Santa, pass the parcel, and the kids had LOADS of presents! After that we did dholki songs, OK this isn't festive, but as it my wedding coming up all the girls and mums were learning traditional Asian songs in preparation for my mehndi night - a traditional hen night - and it was great listening to them in action! We were singing until 4am then had a sleepover. Was a good night before I had to travel back to London in the morning. Here are a few pics from the party.
