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鈥檝e Got Mail and Nora Ephron-themed shindig, inspiring a whole new level of friendship goals.

鈥淚 usually do a holiday dinner with the young women that work with me but I鈥檝e had a busy week!鈥 Kaling quipped on Instagram, sharing a snap of the detailed custom menu. 鈥淪o they brought the holiday dinner to me.鈥

Kaling credited the creative feast to two of her assistants, gushing over the detailed work they put into it. 鈥淚t鈥檚 a You鈥檝e Got Mail Nora Ephron-themed holiday dinner, cooked and orchestrated by @asekar95 and @yo_its_hmo and it鈥檚 happening TONIGHT at my house,鈥 she wrote. 鈥淟ook at this menu! Look at these Nora Ephron deep cuts! (Maybe for dessert we will have coffee鈥 Patricia? Patricia鈥檚 amazing. Patricia makes coffee nervous.)鈥

The menu included tasty treats like 鈥淪hopgirl鈥檚 Pasta Pomodoro,鈥 鈥淗igh Maintenance Truffle Cauliflower Soup,鈥 and 鈥淎ngel of Death Carrots.鈥 The dessert selection? 鈥淧ie 脿 la Sally,鈥 featuring a choice of apple or pecan pie with various toppings.

Kaling kept her pregnancy relatively low-key, and so far hasn鈥檛 personally shared any pics or updates on her new bundle of joy. If the 鈥淵ule Got Mail鈥 dinner is any indication, though, it鈥檚 been a fun and loving first week for the new mom and baby.
