Tip: Resist the urge to sew these together. They are much easier to wash as single doilies. It would be difficult to block them when they are one.
This was going to be perfect for a Kaffeeklatsch! That's German for an informal social gathering punctuated with coffee and fueled by conversation. I pulled out some dessert trios, aka Sammeltassen (collectors trios) and set this table just for us! You'll stay for a piece of cake and some coffee or tea, right? A couple of posts with the Sammeltassen HERE, HERE and HERE.
Tip: Repeating one motif or element at least 3 times is not only pleasing to the eye, but will also cohesively pull everything together.
