Moch* Cream Filling One half pint cream for whipping; one fliird cup powdered su- ;ar; one tablespoon mocha, flavoring, or two tablespoons stronc coffee.

For the smaller tea emit the cold meats, hoi dish and salad.

Consult your cook book for good recipes which will insure the success from a culinary point, of view. New Wares Needed Perhaps yoi:r tea table and buffet equipment in inadequate for such a party. This year the problem of price U not so bothersome as in past seasons. All table wares arc cheaper, even silver. And since this is among the nicsl beautiful and desirable wares for the table As a tea-table cake, this spice cake is delicious. Use either a boiled white frosting or mocha frosting on it. Or if served as dessert for supper, or any menu served at the table, it is delicious with a hot, chocolate sauce in place of icing. One third cup shortening; one cup sugar; two eggs, two thirds cup strong freshly made though cold, coffee; two cups flour; three teaspoons baking powder; one eighth teaspoon salt; one teaspoon ougr.t to bc»in restocking. Look about for silver tea with it when and codec services. Add a new salad boa-l and fork and spoon- or a tray for sandwiches; or a pair of small dishes for nuts and candies, if tea and buffet menus are offered very late in the afternoon, the table needs candlesticks, and these are now made in unusually lovely styles The candles for them are In all colors to harmonize with Spring color schemes. The cloth for the dining table when buffet style is served may be n damask table cloth as is used for dinner, or it may be a runner, with matching mats used under th« va- vlcus dishes. For tl;e tea table a lea cloth is necessary and in each cnse napkins match the cloth used Tr.esc tea cloths arc made of homespun effect linens, or arc very fine of damask, handmade lace and handworked linen.
