{Dutch King's Birthday Celebration in Atlanta, Georgia}

Okay, let's sum up what happened since our trip to Arizona... Husband Pieter had another Birthday on April 29. Next day we drove to Atlanta, to celebrate Dutch King's Birthday with a reception at Naylor Hall in Roswell. Spending one night at the +Hyatt Place Atlanta/Perimeter Center. Only to drive back next day, to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport picking up a dear friend from The Netherlands, who stayed with us for one week.
Here you see the Dutch Honorary Consul, Ewoud N. Swaak (l) with my husband Pieter.
A nice wooden floor was placed on the lawn.
Pieter wore his Agave denim Fit Classic Rocker, in an orange charcoal pinstripe and orange cotton pique Ralph Lauren polo.
The event was being held at the Historic Naylor Hall, an 1840 mansion.
Weather was cooperating very well; far better than the previous day on husband Pieter's birthday when it rained cats and dogs...
For the event I did wear my orange Escada stretch jeans with blouse.
Lovely costumes worn by charming Dutch girls!
The Honorary Consul did speak to the crowd and we sang the national American and Dutch Anthems.
The American Anthem at the top and in Dutch, the Wilhelmus and also translated into English.
My hands holding the iPhone with which I did tape the typical Dutch Klompen Dancing.
Not such perfect ending but still okay...
Yes, I enjoyed this evening tremendously!
In the outside 'tents' they were serving typical Dutch fare...
Bitterballen, (click link for recipe!) patatje met mayonaise.
Bitterballen duo...
Kroketten ←click the link. In the past, I loved a Kalfskroket between a whole wheat bun... So yummy!
Inside Naylor Hall there was a buffet with delicious food.
Vine ripe tomato and mozzarella salad
Field greens with strawberries, pralines, goat cheese & sweet peppercorn vinaigrette
Say CHEESE...!
And more CHEESE...
Are you getting hungry yet?
Very much I enjoyed this Wild mushroom risotto with white wine & fontina cheese...
Thanks to many generous sponsors!
Hope you enjoyed it...

      This was such a wonderful evening. The weather was like a dream and unreal, considering the heavy rain on Pieter's Birthday.
      Glad you liked the food...

  4. Wat een leuk Hollands feestje met bitterballen mmmmm dat moet lekker zijn geweest en al de hollandse kazen erbij. Je was in vol oranje outfit, leuk. Het dirndl-achtige delfts blauwe jurkje was wel een heel vrije interpretatie van de hollandse klederdracht :) Ach en de klompendans die hoort erbij, die hebben ze mooi uitgevoerd ondanks de komisch uitglijder aan het eind.

      Het was al met al, zó ver van Nederland een heel mooi feest. Die jurkjes vond ik toch best een geinige creatie; iemand is zeer creatief geweest! Ja, jammer van die uitglijder maar het was prachtig.
      Liefs,

  6. Hoi Mariette,

    Jullie vierden deze dag nog traditioneel op 30 april,voor ons is dat verleden tijd omdat Koningsdag dit jaar voor het eerst op 27 april gevierd werd, de verjaardag van Koning Willem-Alexander.
    De dag kreeg ook een andere invulling en werd in een moderner jasje gestoken,geen koekhappen en klompendans.
    Maar ik zie dat Nederland het in het buitenland nog altijd goed doet met bitterballen,kaas en klompendans;-)ziet er gezellig uit.
    Jij vierden en zag in elk geval meer van deze Koningsdag dan ik die de deur niet uit kwam.
    Maar daar kies ik zelf voor,ben nog nooit liefhebber geweest van oranjefeesten.

    Liefs,Ger

    1. Beste Ger,
      Het hangt er vanaf wanneer dit gevierd wordt. Het Consulaat moet kunnen en ook moet Naylor Hall beschikbaar zijn, los van allerlei andere evenementen die op dezelfde dag zouden kunnen zijn. Voor jullie is het gemakkelijk omdat 27 april een vrije dag is maar dat gaat hier in de USA natuurlijk níet op. Dus zodoende verschuift het meestal naar het weekend en ook i.v.m. het spitsuur in de metropolitan area van Atlanta, waar meer dan vijf miljoen mensen wonen.
      We hebben het altijd erg mooi gevonden om met de grote Nederlandse gemeenschap in of rond Atlanta samen te komen. Zelfs met Papa en Moeke vierden we Koninginnedag in 1987 bij de toenmalige Consul thuis, in Atlanta. Heel erg mooi en het is ook niet vergelijkbaar met de Nederlandse Koninginnedag of Koningsdag wat meestal uit straat- en pleinfeesten bestaat met vrijmarkten.
      Nederland doet het zeker goed in het buitenland en niet voor niets is dit kleine landje de grootste investeerder in onze staat Georgia. Ook voor de USA in zijn geheel behoort Nederland nog altijd tot de top investeerders. Daar zijn we natuurlijk best trots op en vandaar dat ook zulke geweldige evenementen gesponsord kunnen worden!
      Liefs,
      Mariette

      Thank you, this was really a very festive period for both of us in many ways. This indeed is annually such a merry event and fun to catch up with other Dutch people. We book a hotel and usually we shop at the Costco wholesale before driving back home.
      Pieter had a special day too, even with the rain.

  12. Hello Dear Mariette! I enjoyed coming along with you to the celebration - you both look so nice in your national orange colors! The Dutch girl dance was wonderful - and very complicated to remember. All of the food looks so delicious, too. Happy Belated Birthday to Pieter! I also enjoyed seeing your trip to Arizona and the Hoover Dam in the previous posts. The Dam is an amazing sight! I watched a documentary once on the building of this dam. It is an engineering marvel. Wishing you a lovely week. Hugs xo Karen

      Glad you enjoyed the Klompen Dance.

      Well, it used to be Dutch Queen's Day but since we have a King now, it is called King's Day. Our first we celebrated in Curaçao while on vacation with daughter Liz and her husband. That was very special and it was the coronation of the new King.
      We love to attend and also meeting with other Dutch business people whom we know for over 30 years.

      No, this was not the trip to Arizona, that was one month before...
      Pieter did have his birthday the day before we went to the Dutch King's Birthday Celebration.
      A lovely time we had and so lucky that it was sunny, as it rained very hard on Pieter's birthday.
      Sorry you too are having endless rainy days. There is so little we can do when it rains.
      Sending you hugs and sunshine,

      Thank you very much, it was such a rainy, but very happy day. This celebration was so perfect in every aspect! We enjoyed it and after shopping the next morning at Costco we drove home.
      Sure you would have enjoyed the inside buffet. Outside they served all typical Dutch fare, like Chicken Satay with peanut sauce etc. etc.
      The tomato mozzarella I also enjoyed... and even more so the yummy risotto!
