We set the table with an eclectic mix of china teacups, water goblets, napkins, and silverware.
We arranged each individual plate with the tiny desserts and had them ready and waiting in the refrigerator to serve once the guests arrived. Each plate had: a Piourline cookie, a rabbit-shaped sugar cookie (from my grandmother's recipe), lemon mousse with blackberry and blueberries in phyllo cup, an enormous chocolate-dipped strawberry, and chocolate mousse garnished with raspberry and mint leaf. Each person's chocolate mousse was piped into one of my antique crystal salt cellars and served with a teeny spoon.
She had a friend visiting from out-of-state with her own daughters. We set up a separate table in a corner of the dining room for the little girls, with their own tablecloth, cheery daffodil snipped from the front flowerbed, and teacups.
Everyone talked around the table for hours...sipping tea, admiring the cute baby gifts (oops...no pictures of those), and enjoying having a really girly night with friends!
