Something red, something white, something blue

My friend Connie called on me recently for moral support and dessert ideas for a bridal shower she was about to host. The couple-to-be was to be married out of state on the Fourth of July.

Connie certainly knows how to throw a party. And this casual, flag-inspired luncheon was no exception.

The 24 guests enjoyed finger foods for lunch — a variety of wraps, veggie platter and chips.

Even the table arrangements were top-notch. They included cloth napkins and bright flowers in decorative pots for each guest to take home.

My contribution was this colorful parfait — a layer of strawberry puree' and gelatin, mascarpone and white chocolate, and then fresh blueberries in small mason jars. The recipe will be published in my Table Scraps column tomorrow.
