The holidays are a busy time for anyone, and even more so for new moms! After Mindy Kaling gave birth to her first child, daughter Katherine, on December 15, her friends threw her an elaborate You’ve Got Mail and Nora Ephron-themed shindig, inspiring a whole new level of friendship goals.
“I usually do a holiday dinner with the young women that work with me but I’ve had a busy week!” Kaling quipped on Instagram, sharing a snap of the detailed custom menu. “So they brought the holiday dinner to me.”
Kaling credited the creative feast to two of her assistants, gushing over the detailed work they put into it. “It’s a You’ve Got Mail Nora Ephron-themed holiday dinner, cooked and orchestrated by @asekar95 and @yo_its_hmo and it’s happening TONIGHT at my house,” she wrote. “Look at this menu! Look at these Nora Ephron deep cuts! (Maybe for dessert we will have coffee… Patricia? Patricia’s amazing. Patricia makes coffee nervous.)”
The menu included tasty treats like “Shopgirl’s Pasta Pomodoro,” “High Maintenance Truffle Cauliflower Soup,” and “Angel of Death Carrots.” The dessert selection? “Pie à la Sally,” featuring a choice of apple or pecan pie with various toppings.
Kaling kept her pregnancy relatively low-key, and so far hasn’t personally shared any pics or updates on her new bundle of joy. If the “Yule Got Mail” dinner is any indication, though, it’s been a fun and loving first week for the new mom and baby.
