The Hostess with the Mostest

On Monday, I hosted a few friends from my former workplace for muffins and coffee. It's February vacation for them, and I thought it would be nice to get together and chat. What I thought would be a relatively short visit turned into nearly three hours! We had a lot of fun catching up and "dishing" about what's new with who at school!

I kept the menu very simple since two of guests have dietary restrictions. We had gingerbread muffins and fresh, homemade whole wheat bread (my State Fair, blue ribbon recipe) with butter and coffee.

The dessert plates and cake stand were a wedding gift from one of the other librarians in the district. I think this is the first time I've used them! I have slightly less formal (and breakable) dessert plates and cake stand that are more "everyday," but I'm going to make an effort to bring these out more often!


  1. I love it, Courtney! Your tablecloth and napkins go perfectly with the dessert plate and dishes! It must have been a lovely afternoon!

  2. How pretty! Will you please share the recipes?

  3. beautiful! i need to have a little moms tea party, oh that sounds like fun ... heh.
