Kaboom – so, did the earth move for you too?

Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Parties features here.

Come on then, how was your fireworks night? Mr Muddy’s annual advertising work kaboom evening at our house went off pretty well, but then we were incredibly lazy (mascerading as, like, sooo busy) and called in assistance on the booze and food.

Lovely Aaron from MACC Events rocked up with his superfunky mobile cocktail van and basically spent the night shaking his cocktail maracas and winning over the ladies (for tis true, Aaron is also pleasing to the eye).

And award-winning Orchard View Farm, local to me and home to some of the happiest piggies in Buckinghamshire (until, um…. but let’s not go there), provided the food, Mr Muddy’s collection of dance tracks from the Nineties are so out of date that they’ve come back into fashion, and our enormous fire works display managed to avoid singeing the poplars this year.


I was working that night (*hairshirt, whip*) but found everything trooped along rather nicely on a couple of medicinal G&Ts.

Anyway, if you’re thinking of having a party in the forseeable, I’d definitely recommend both MACC and Orchard View – they were both totally pro, and I’ll be hoiking them in for the annual Muddy summer party. Mr Muddy is also available for weddings, birthday parties and bar mitvahs in between advertising deals, but, er, I’ll leave that one to your discretion!

    I can vouch for Macc Events being fabulous! I booked them for my 30th! Their bar set up was fantastic and Aaron and Tom really made it extra fabulous! All of my guests can’t stop talking about it!

    Yes we also stood on the patio and enjoyed them, but I live in butlers x , what a party! Good luck with the lifestyle blog and never show us a picture of Mr Muddy, I reckon he’s a bit like The Stig !! Leave me to my imagination!
