Special Dessert Table For Special College Friends

We have 8 guests at home right now for the whole week, 7 were my classmates from College and one of them brought her sister from Canada. We are all having so much fun. laughter is all you can hear wherever we are but it's been really hectic and very busy. I am staying up late just to finish posting this and tomorrow, we are going to spend the day in New Orleans.

I hope you don't mind me visiting you next week because I really cannot find time right now.

This was our dessert table on their first dinner here. I prepared everything the first night but now they have been taking turns in cooking and everybody else helps in cleaning afterwards. We are having our annual reunion and it's been so much fun. I used Myott's Indian Tree" teacup set and my Hammersley's Bird of Paradise coffee/tea pot. I added my 2 Meissen  figures with tray and served chocolate candies on them.

Pierced embroidered tablecloth from Grand Cayman.
