Things are wonderfully hectic here at the parish as we prepare for the organ dedication. They are so busy that one would think that Christmas was this weekend (save that there are no decorations in the house.) So rather than say anything lengthy or useful, I thought I would share this humorous little tidbit under the category “Nuptial Entertaining.” It concerns what should be served for breakfast to your guests the day after the wedding.
To quote Mrs. Fenner: “To serve more than four courses for a wedding breakfast is almost unheard of nowadays. (You can say that again.) For such a breakfast as we have been describing, four might be served, in which case a possible menu would be:
Lobster Newberg * Toast Points
Cold Ham in Aspic * Endive Salad
“The following three course menus are also elaborate enough for a lavish breakfast:
Roast Duck with oranges * endive salad
Fruits refraische au rhum
Roast Squab with Wild Rice * Russian Salad
Chocolate Ice Cream
“Minted Fresh Pineapple
Chicken Eugene * Asparagus, butter sauce
The traditional post nuptials breakfast in our family is potica and coffee.
Now to be fair she does offer other menus for less formal weddings but none of them include potica and coffee.
