Q My daughter is expecting twins, and I am planning a Victorian-style tea party as a baby shower. We plan to have it outdoors on a poolside patio and decorate the tables with flower-filled teacups. Do you have any suggestions for food?

- Rachel


Sounds absolutely lovely! I suggest keeping the food elegant and uncomplicated to match the surroundings. Offer tiny tea-sized portions that allow guests to daintily nibble throughout the party, and make sure tea and lemonade are readily available.

You might even consider hiring help from a neighborhood teenager or two, to keep trays refreshed and pour beverages.

To continue a classic tea party theme, start with triple-layer Ribbon Sandwiches for delightful nourishment. Then satisfy sweet tooths with Spring Almond Ruffles and Easy Fruit Tarts — you'll be amazed at how simple these gorgeous tarts are to make.

Enjoy your celebration!
