This food is pretty. Bite sized. Quaint. Charming. Appropriate for a baby shower, fitting for a tea. But, if I’m honest, it’s these gorgeous serving pieces that really elevate this whole spread. I mean…assorted crystal cake stands change some wonder bread & cucumbers into a wow. (Note, wonder bread is THE BEST for tea sandwiches). So, while most of us can’t run out and get dozens of these decorate trays–start collecting! And for parties, transfer the idea of potlucking food, to potlucking cake stands. It really makes a difference–especially for teas & showers. Amy hung these handmade paper poufs above the buffet. These photos don’t do it justice–the quantity of her pink balls jammed together made a dramatic impact. My menu was traditional tea time with a few highlights: watermelon radish tea sandwiches and lavender short bread. The key ingredient in both: good butter!
tea selection: earl grey, english breakfast, ginger & mint
cucumber & watercress tea sandwiches
watermelon radish & chive tea sandwiches
smoked salmon, cream cheese & dill on pumpernickel
