Favourite Dishes


What better way to celebrate such a momentous occasion than with a delicious spread of food?!
One way to achieve this is by asking guests to prepare a favourite dish they like to create.



Alternatively, to make sure you get a variety of dishes on the day, you could ask even numbered houses to create sweet dishes and odd numbered houses to create savoury dishes.
