January was a busy month, lots of birthdays and lots of parties hosted here on the hill. After the BIG 40 for Mr Chiots, we had a birthday brunch for a friend. It’s always nice to make lovely food, pull out grandma’s silverplate, make banners, and enjoy a wonderful meal with friends to celebrate life.
I love planning parties and making little lovelies to make it unique. Ginnie loves chickens, sheep, and all things agrarian, so chickens were the theme. The birthday banner I made for Mr Chiots’ party was reused, I just printed out a new name. I’ve had requests for it to be saved for future parties, in fact, I’ve already printed out a few more names for future celebrations.
Brunch is such a fun meal to plan, you can go savory or sweet, or both if you prefer. I made strawberry cheesecake French toast casserole and these lovely little chocolate petit fours. A friend made two types of scones and fruit salad.
There’s really no better way to celebrate someone than to sit around the table and enjoy good food and great conversation.
