Good For:High Tea / Lunch
By: Michaela Brown It wouldn’t be a tea without the dainty little sandwiches cut into fun shapes. The two I chose to make for my party are perhaps the most commonly associated with afternoon tea. When some friends and I were on a cruise we made the mistake of going to the afternoon tea without having lunch first. We kept asking for sandwich after sandwich! I don’t think the waiters were very happy with us!! The lesson we learned?? It takes a lot of these little tea sandwiches to fill you up, so next time, don’t skip lunch!
