Dessert for a post funeral gathering?
One of my closest friend's had her mother pass this morning. She's a single mom, 4 kids, few relatives but tons of friends. No wake, just a service in the church then the cemetery. I've agreed to go to her home after the funeral, skipping the cemetery, to set things up at her house for all those coming back.
I'm having most of the food catered: wraps, salads, soups, some hot dishes, but I'm organizing her closest friends to help out by making desserts. I'm sure there will be some standards like brownies and cookies, but any other suggestions? I think it's going to be well over 100 people by the time we are done. Coffee and tea for sure, should I get wine? Is it normal for people to drink after a funeral - it wouldn't be in my family, but I don't know about others...
My head is spinning right now trying to wrap it around everything I need to pick up, along with my kids' schedules and my own, and my heart is breaking for my friend and her kids, so I'm not thinking very clearly.
