Debutant Tea: White Chocolate Berry Pie

This is the week that the Midland Minuet Club Debutants are presented, so the Barbie Nation thought it would be fun to host their own debutant tea.
Veronica's momma, Mary Nell, always instructs the new debs on etiquette, posture and of course, the full French court bow.  "The bow requires good knees and lots of practice.  Basically one leg is wrapped around the other, while kneeling.  The the deb lowers herself all the way to the floor.  While sucking in her lips, to keep her lipstick from staining her dress, her head is lowered to the floor."
