Kaffee Klatsch Preparation

"Kaffee Klatsch" is a German definition for a festive get-together with friends and family in which coffee is served on a beautifully decorated table with a variety of home-made pastries and cakes. The Kaffee Klatsch takes place between 2:30 and 4:30 to 5:00  in the afternoon and is followed up with  wine or/and champagne. It can take place week days or weekends, depending on the occasion and the availability of the guests. It is a near sacred ritual, and generally an honor to be invited to. Birthdays are virtually a must-do, and if not extending or receiving an invitation, often create a  host of hurt feelings. Tradition also calls for bringing a small gift, like a bottle of wine or a few flowers or whatever... I one time called up a few friends to come over in a half an hour, and one insisted on gifting me with a few peaches because she didn't have anything else handy and no time to go shopping.

Whether I am the hostess or guest, whether it is a party of two or three or as many as ten or twelve, I always look forward to it, as this is a great way to spend time, since there is always pleasant and interesting conversation. It is one of the most cherished traditions of my homeland and something I miss whenever I spend a few months in USA.

    Thank you so much, Leahpro!  I too have the feeling it turned out a bit on the elegant side. The basis for furniture and the relative elegant ambiance was the flower (I believe magnolias) picture.
