A tea party starts with tea so I’ve decided to serve two types, both decaffeinated :
Rooibos and Honeybush tea and good old black tea.
Since the tea starts at 2 in the afternoon, it will not be high tea meaning a full meal will not be provided. We’ll have some savory snacks and some sweet treats which I plan to make the morning of the parties.
On the savory side:
- chicken salad sandwiches,
- egg salad sandwiches,
- cucumber sandwiches.
On the dolce side:
- petit fours,
- lemon curd in meringue shells aka Pavlovas,
- almond pound cake.
I also bought 2 packages of Trader Joe’s frozen “Sweet Bites”. There are a dozen pieces in each box and it comes highly recommended.
In addition I’ll probably have some pretzel thins for a taste of salty/crunchy and some chocolate-covered-caramel candy.
I did find my rock candy swizzle sticks at Amazon.
What is your all-time favorite sandwich? Mine is here.
