We've picked out the essential items you need to get into the spirit of the evening and set your table ready for a Burns Night supper. From the disposable plates and forks (meaning minimal washing up to do later on!) to the balloons and flags no Burns Night celebration would be complete without.
1. Yellow Table Cover at £0.69
2. Red Paper Plates at £1.99 for 8
3. Green Tartan Banquet Roll at £4.49
4. Royal Standard of Scotland Flag at £5.99

Burns Night Bakes

This Sunday 15th January marks Burns Night. The annual Scottish celebration of the life and the poetry of Robert Burns. Burns Night is traditionally celebrated with a hearty Scottish supper of haggis and neeps and tatties, interspersed with readings of Burns' classic poetry.

But of course, no supper is complete without traditional and Scottish inspired puddings. Most hearty of all must of course be a good Whisky and Ginger Pudding. Served with lashings of warm toffee sauce, it has our mouths watering at just the thought of it! Get the recipe here.

Cranachan is a traditional pudding often served on Burns Night. Made with fresh raspberries, cream, oatmeal and honey, it is easy to make in advance and you can get the recipe for this fruity Cranachan here.
Cone Party Bags

Another traditional Scottish treat is tablet. Perfect for snacking on throughout the day and after the big supper. A good recipe is hard to find for Scottish tablet, but follow this one and we're sure you're guests won't be disappointed! You could even package up a few chunks of delicious tablet to give away to guests! Use clear cello party bags and tie closed with some tartan ribbon to keep in the theme of the night.

If you are not taking part in a traditional Burns supper, you could still add a little bit of Scottish influence into your weekend by making these awesome Whisky Buttercream Cupcakes with tartan icing!

Once you have decided on which puddings you want to make, all that is left is to get decorating for Burns Night!

Washi Tape Hacks

We loved using washi tape over the holidays to add a quirky touch to all the presents we wrapped for friends and family. With lots of washi tape going spare, we've been looking up some awesome ways to use it up and add some extra colour to our day to day lives! These are our favourite ideas for creative ways to use your left over washi tape in 2015.
Got a boring journal or diary? Customise the cover with stripes of washi tape to brighten up your note takings this year! Get the tutorial and watch u-createcrafts.com's video for lots more ways to personalise your note pads.
Create a geometric design to make a plain pin board a lot more attractive. A simple way to add some artwork into your organisational plans this year. Fab idea from Jenn at dotcomsformoms.com.
Complete your washi tape pinboard with washi tape pins! Get this simple tutorial here and add some colourful tape to liven up basic push pins. Now you have no excuse not to be organised in 2015!
We love cupcakes. We love flags. We love washi tape. So what is there not to love about these adorable cupcake decorations made using a washi tape and cocktail sticks!
The perfect way to brighten up some simple wooden spoons to use at your next party. Better still, our wooden cutlery is in the sale at Flingers, with packs of 24 pieces at just £0.49!
Or, just re-evaluate the way you use washi tape to wrap your presents! Get creative and use the colourful tape to create patterns and geometric flourishes on plain wrapping paper. Much better than using it just as a substitute for normal selotape! A great idea from poppytalk.com.
