Melinda M (researcher707) | 2554 comments Hope everyone is having a good January . Here in Mississippi, we are trying to stay warm as we did not get below freezing much but have this week. I have given the Kitchen and our gathering room a good cleaning . I will stack up on the things we use a lot.

Ausjenny, how is the summer temps there?

Thanks for answering Ausjenny. I just wondered how hot because we had been cold but are back to normal for a little while.

Melinda M (researcher707) | 2554 comments Since Brittany's birthday falls on Sunday Jan. 14th, I thought we could celebrate her birthday all weekend. I am hanging banners in gold and silver. Using Paula-O's tablecloths from last January -tables have tablecloths in ivory color with flowers in pretty vase because her in the US it is winter and we need some color to brighten things up.
I have put coffee ,both types in the coffeepots as well as hot water on for tea. The ice tea is in the refrigerator ,with sweetened, unsweetened, decaffeinated tea fixed both ways as well as lemonade. There is milk and creamer as well.

I have brought a fruit tray for those trying to watch the sweets after the holidays and a vegetable tray. I brought brownies . There are some with nuts are on the yellow tray and have nuts printed on a card in front. and some without who are on the blue tray.

Happy Birthday, Brittany! hope you have a wonderful birthday and a special weekend.

Happy birthday, Brittany!! Hope you have a great weekend celebration!

I'm adding a key lime pie to the table to remind us of summer.


message 10: by Becky (new)

Becky Smith | 679 comments It's so cold here that I will bring some hot chocolate also, for the non-coffee drinkers. The tables are lovely, Melinda! And all the fruit looks luscious! I will bring some creme brulee.


message 11: by Melinda (new)

Melinda M (researcher707) | 2554 comments The fruit looks almost too pretty to eat but I will have some. Hot chocolate sounds wonderful as it is chilly in Mississippi . Ausjenny, Thank you for all the different fruit I will have to try Christine's key lime pie as I have never had any before. Stay warm except for Ausjenny who needs to stay cool.


message 12: by MaryE (new)

MaryE Stifflemire | 499 comments Happy Birthday Brittany!! I hope you have a wonderful weekend celebration!! I've added a peach cobbler to the table along with some ice cream in the freezer for those who wish to indulge.

Valri Western | 964 comments Happy Birthday, Brittany!


message 15: by Dorothy (new)

Dorothy Clark | 1393 comments Happy birthday Brittany! I hope you have a wonderful day. There are so many sweets I decided to bring two trays of appetizers. There are pickled beets, deviled eggs, olives, pickles-sweet, dill and bread and butter, macaroni and cheese bites and pizza roll bites.

The tables look lovely. It's so nice to see flowers this time of year. We had a strange day-weather-wise-yesterday here in western NY. It went from below freezing to pouring rain during the wee hours of the night, which melted the four inches of snow we had. The temperature climbed to 58 degrees during the day, then dropped back down and snowed 8 inches before the temp. dropped down to minus 7 degrees by during the night. We are enjoying the crackling fire in the fireplace!


message 16: by Melinda (new)

Melinda M (researcher707) | 2554 comments Andrea, the little cake and cupcakes are pretty and sound wonderful.
Dorothy, what a wonderful idea to have appetizers.
The weather is strange but you had Soring, Fall and winter in 24 hours. Stay warm Dorothy.

It is going to be in the 50's tomorrow but we will get colder and probably have snow Tuesday night which is not the normal here is South Mississippi.

Hope you had a wonderful birthday, Brittany.

Melinda M (researcher707) | 2554 comments Cleaning up and getting ready for our next birthday on Sunday, Jan.21. I am adding blue banners to go with the gold and silver. Refreshing all of the drinks as well as putting the coffee pot and the pot for hot water on the timer.

I am adding A King Cake which is what they serve and is the traditional Mardi Gras dessert, They have different fillings inside and I prefer the cream cheese but there are others. I have added several different cakes with the only difference being the filling. Normal there is a plastic baby in the cake but ours is missing that as it is safer.
Below is the link for the recipe

I also added pictures of a King Cake in the photos and they are on page 3.

message 35: by Melinda (new)

Melinda M (researcher707) | 2554 comments Thinking of you Ausjenny as we celebrate Australia's birthday on the 26 th.
I am hanging new streamers which are white, red and navy blue for the colors on Australia's flag.
I am adding a plate of Tim Tams and A picture in our photos. They sound good.
Ausjenny what do you think we all should try from Australia?


message 36: by Ausjenny (new)

Ausjenny | 4954 comments I am adding the Green and Gold as those are our countries colours. Its a contentious day now as the indigenous people see it as invasion day and there is talk we will change the date but this happens every year.
I think you need some Lamb roast or chops. followed by pavlova.
also for morning or afternoon tea some lamingtons would work well. Oh and for those who like chocolates some cherry ripes, freddo frogs and caramello koala's.


message 38: by Dorothy (new)

Dorothy Clark | 1393 comments Happy birthday Australia! I know Jenny is from Australia, of course. Do we have any others from Australia? I've brought a green basket tied with a gold bow filled with the Cadbury products Jenny suggested. Enjoy everyone!

What is your favorite, Jenny?

Andrea | 558 comments I'd like to wish Carol a very Happy Birthday!
My internet has been iffy for the last few days, I might miss it.
I loved the TimTams and Cadbury treats we had on Austraila day.

I'm adding some Cinnabon mini's to the table if anyone wants a sweet for breakfast. Oh and I've put out a box of Tetley black and green tea. It's so tasty hot or iced.
