I can now add a Starring and an Ultimate Battle of Colours to the bottom of the order
Question is, what should the lower order be out of Battlestar, Plasmic Lights (just 1), Starring, U.B. of Colours? Any ideas?

Good range there for your display.

I will just say to my girlfriend and family beforehand "what do you fancy lighting?"

They will pick about 20 bits each out of my stockpile. I don't know what will be picked yet but I will arrange the order they are launched:

1) Nice big rocket to start (probably air hawk)
2) Multi cake (probably PS3)
3) 5 or 6 bog standard fountains
4) Multiple Single shot air bomb style fireworks
5) Recently acquired an unheard of selection box - 4 pieces from it
6) Some of the old collectors pyro I have saved (Screechy rockets)
7) Another multi shot cake (Maybe actually Cube Top gun as it last a while)

The "finale" will be an interesting experiment. I will place about 8 wheels around the garden. Link them to 1 fuse and hopefully time it right so they all go off just as there's 30 seconds left of the final cake hugely lighting up the whole garden.

After that me and family will just launch various fireworks from my collection they are curious about.

Cheers Dude86 :)
That sounds great, particularly the 8-wheel finale, that must look awesome:)

Another change to our NYE order after picking some more stuff up from the wonderful Sonic Fireworks yesterday :)
I've decided rather than a set-in-stone order i'm going to have 3 sections (start, main body, finale), and just do them how we feel. Only the start will have a specific order, as it only contains 4 fireworks

Start
  1. Hokus Pokus (fountain-mine)
  2. Five Alive rocket (peach and lemon)
  3. Bumper Harvest in Orchard (fountain)
  4. Sky Blast rocket (Peachy stars and crackle)
Main Body (any order)
  • Double Happiness
  • Helix
  • Pioneer
  • Asteroid
  • Freefall
  • Crackling Fountain (all above fountains)
  • Missile Attack (small battery)
  • Plasmic Lights D (shot tube)
  • Afterglow
  • Comet Tail
  • Colourful Dragon (all above candles)
  • 3x Sky Storm rockets
  • 3x Sky Navigator rockets
  • 2x Sky Blast rockets
Finale (any order)
  • Plasmic Lights A
  • 4x Five Alive rockets (2x Brocade, purple & green stars, purple & silver glitter)
  • Battlestar (barrage)
  • Starring... (barrage)
  • Glitter Bombs (barrage)
  • Ultimate Battle of Colours (barrage)
  • Leaping Lizards (fountain)
