I am in the process of planning a tea party for this Saturday evening at our house. I invited a bunch of ladies (some from our small group at church, some from MOPS), and most of them are coming. Looks so far that it’s going to be 8 of us.
For the menu I am planning a bunch of different bite-sized tea sandwiches and some sweets. It’s not going to be a ton of heavy food, since I scheduled it to be after normal dinner time (6.30-8.30).
Here’s what I am thinking for the tea sandwiches:
— Pineapple Cream sandwiches on Boston Brown bread
— Appricot Ham sandwiches on french bread
— Spring Radish sandwiches on pumpernickel bread
— Cucumber sandwiches on french bread
— Egg salad sandwiches on pumpernickel bread
— Chicken, cranberry and pecan sandwiches on sourdough bread
For sweets I am a bit more stumped. I am thinking:
— Cupcakes with colorful spring-colors frosting
— Mexican wedding cookies
— Small chocolates
— Lemon squares (one of the ladies offered to bring)
Then, of course, the tea and coffee with all the fixings.
Am I missing something? Does it seem like enough varieties or not enough? Would you add more sweets or should it be enough calories for the evening? 🙂
I’l have to take some pictures on Saturday to show you all how it all turns out 🙂
