Felicity's party treats are very nice and very well-made. The set comes with two real glass salvers which are very heavy and authentic looking and feeling; a cake; tiny little candied fruits; a porcelain vase; flowers; and a "china" shepherdess. The food is very realistic looking and well-made- not at all plasticy looking or feeling. It's made from hard plastic type material, but not cheap looking in the least. The vase looks like a miniature version of real ones of that time and it is made from porcelain and is probably breakable. The flowers are kind of difficult to fit in the vase and are not very realistic looking. The shepherdess is made some lightweight plasticy material and not very detailed looking. The food is the best part of the set and I give it A+
Warning: This set is very breakable! A glass salver broke despite being wrapped in bubble wrap. It fell out of the closet onto a hardwood floor. The shepherdess's head broke off when a gust of wind blew the window blinds onto the box! Even the flowers lose their petals and the stems break.
Caroline's party treat pewter dishes and mugs pair well authentically with this set.

This set is surprisingly durable. I had it set up on the floor near my Christmas tree, and when I wasn't home, my four-year-old neighbor kicked the table by accident and everything fell on the floor...and nothing broke. I was (very happily) surprised!
The details of the food are great. I would prefer Felicity's strawberries over Kirsten's any day. The glass trays are so slippery. So make sure you don't move them around when they are stacked.
Sorry, I only show the bundt cake, treats, and platter. Ignore the jug, flowers, queen's cake and tea cup as they belong to other sets and dolls. I thought it would be useful to show the items in relationship to dolls.

This set is really neat and incredibly detailed. The glass salvers are pretty sturdy for glass, although I still like to be extra careful with them. The treats (bundt cake, candied fruit, fruit tarts) are very realistically made and look delicious. I must agree with the person who said that those strawberries are better made than Kirsten's--'tis true! The flowers and the five-sectioned vase are a cute touch; I had no problems putting the flowers in each section. My favorite piece of the set is the China doll--it reminds me of the one Caroline Ingalls has in the Little House series! Lastly, there's a flower holder, which is just a piece of folded tissue paper and a sticker holding the fold in place. I don't really use that much, though, except to hold the treats when I'm not using them.

Having bought these in separate 'lots' I think I have bits from both older and newer versions, although I'm not certain which are which.

(earlier photo) Strangely, it looks as though the bottom salver is smaller but it isnt, that pair are the same size. The topmost salver in the first photo above is smaller though.
