Inspiration for a Burns Night celebration

Tonight is Burns Night – the yearly celebration of the life and literary works of great Scottish poet, Robert Burns (1759-1796). People all around the country will be celebrating with a Burns Supper which includes the eating of a traditional Scottish meal, the drinking of Scotch whisky, and the reading of works by the poet – including the famous poem Alde Lang Syne that we were all singing less than four weeks ago. I have never been to a Burns night celebration myself but I think I would enjoy it – anything where food and drink is a core part of the celebration sounds good to me. Anyway, Burns Night has inspired me to do some research online and I have created a moodboard of fabulous ideas for creating a decadent Scottish themed party.

Please check out my Special Holidays board on Pinterest. I’d love to have a themed part like this and I think it would be especially good for a Christmas or new years eve Hogmany celebration so I’ll be revisiting this again at the end of the year to inspire my festive decorating. In the meantime, I’ll be enjoying some shortbread tonight and raising a glass of whisky to Robert Burns.
