Throwing a Burns Supper at Home

Planning a home-based Burns Supper for friends and family should be simple, easy and FUN! When organising Burns Suppers in the past I've made them overly complicated or too formal - which only results in making the night more stressful than enjoyable.

Scotties – the Highland terriers

Some of my recent designs feature a charming wee Scottie dog. Originally bred in the Highlands of Scotland, Scotties have always been one of my favourite dog breeds.
