Burgess Birthday Bash 2016

20160805_233912

Every year, we have one really big themed birthday party for Hayden and Haylee, because their birthdays are only 12 days apart.  Yesterday was the big day!  The kids like to pick a different country each year, and I plan a menu of authentic foods from that country, and we hold the party at lunch time. 

So with French café music in the background, we feasted on dishes like Beef Au Jus (French dip), two kinds of croissant sandwiches, Tartiflette (a potato/onion/bacon/wine dish), Charcuterie (with 3 kinds of French soft cheese, 3 kinds of meats, and 3 fruits, and 3 kinds of pickled treats with 3 kinds of crackers and breads for spreading), Classic Celery Remoulade, and mini cream cheese croissants.  Then we had delicious party punch that one of my friends made (thank you, Bonnie) and strawberry cake with strawberry marshmallow fluffy frosting.  It was delicious!

We had all kinds of indoor crafts for the girls to do, and all kinds of outdoor activities for the boys to do.

It was a lot of fun!  It’s always great to hang out with good friends.

It’s hard to believe that Haylee is now 12, and Hayden will be 17 this Friday.  The years have just disappeared before my eyes!

I’ll leave you with a photo diary of the event.
