"Lace" themed dinner

Hi all, I'm planning to cook dinner for some friends and, in honor of an upcoming occasion, would like the theme to be "lace". I thought I could do parmesan lace crackers and cheese for a starter, lace cookies with ice cream for dessert... but I wondered if anyone has suggestions for a main dish or anything else I could add that would add to the theme? I am also planning to pick up pretty doilies to use around the place settings to add an effect. Any ideas?

  1. How about crépinettes?

      1. For the main dish, that's a hard one; not sure you'll find anything that would work. But here are some ideas from a similar request just a few weeks ago:

          1. If you did some kind of casserole or layered thing say in a springform pan, you could put a doily on top and sprinkle something (cocoa, parmesan, paprika?) over it to get a lace design on top. LIke you would do with powdered sugar on top of a cake. Using savory ingredients.
