Very large bottle of champagne

Hi Boomers, I'm 70 in December. As I'm a tee total veggie I can't think what to bring - maybe quorn sausages and pineapple on sticks and a lovely bunch of flowers for everyone really nice ones from a florist but as there may be a lot of us that could be too expensive. flowers smile

My birthday is nearly the same date as yours Nankate, but I'm 3 years too young!

Gracesgran Sun 31-Jul-16 19:57:17

I can't believe you are 70 and some a little older; you certainly don't sound it - I thought you were all my age grin

Juliette Sun 31-Jul-16 19:59:53

5th September 1946. The same day as Freddie Mercury, so I'll bring the Dansette record player and a couple of original Queen records plus a big apple and blackberry pie to celebrate the start of Autumn. The best season of the year.

What a gorgeous cake Shysal-and there I am trying to cut out fat due to high chlorestorelsad
I was 67 this year so happy birthday you 70 year olds.
I shall always bring cake-so fat free Swiss roll and fresh fruit

I'm 70 on the 6th of October. I'll bring a big bowl of Coronation Chicken and some healthy salad - lots of cake already promised.

4th Sep 1946. I will bring more champagne, one bottle isn't enough smile
Do you all like caviar on blini's? Or smoked salmon?

NanKate Sun 31-Jul-16 21:24:26

Excellent, it's going to be a good party and lots of great food especially Shysal's cake. greenfinch can we have a whole platter of cheese please but no cottage cheese which is foul IMO.

Happy Birthday for tomorrow Wot

Who is going to bring us a bowl of salad ?

Any nice starters on Offer ?

Greenfinch Sun 31-Jul-16 21:36:15

No problem. I will bring as many types as I can. I love strong stinky cheese and goats cheese. We could even bake some of it.

wot Sun 31-Jul-16 21:53:37

Goat's cheese wrapped in streaky bacon....cook and serve on salad......yum!
