AHHH, the footed, cut-glass punchbowl and the "Individual Iced Cakes," before we learned to say "petit four."

Ladies in corsages and bright-for-the-camera poses, with just a teensy bit of trepidation on all three faces.

And I'll bet if we looked closely enough, there's a paper doily or two beneath some of the party goodies.

I've been to many a one of those gatherings, and have a drawerful of white gloves to prove it.
