Um, Mindy Kaling Threw the Coolest Rom-Com-Themed Party Just 1 Week After Giving Birth
Just because Mindy Kaling gave birth one week ago doesn’t mean she’s incapable of throwing the best rom-com-themed party, like, ever.
Kaling took to Instagram yesterday to share details of her annual holiday get-together. The Mindy Project star began by explaining that baby Katherine’s arrival threw a bit of a wrench into her dinner plans, writing, “I usually do a holiday dinner with the young women that work with me but I’ve had a busy week! So they brought the holiday dinner to me.”
We can only imagine the stress of hosting a holiday dinner just one week after giving birth, but Kaling and co. managed to pull together a Pinterest-perfect party inspired by two of our fave rom-coms: You’ve Got Mail and When Harry Met Sally.
The proud mom shared a photo of a three-course menu containing a slew of movie references and classic dishes, including high-maintenance truffle cauliflower soup, Fox Books el sprouts with dates and Halloumi, and even pie à la Sally.
She continued, “It’s a You’ve Got Mail Norah Ephron-themed holiday dinner, cooked and orchestrated by @asekar95 and @yo_its_hmo and it’s happening TONIGHT at my house. 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.)”
We’ll have what she’s having.
