The food for the tea party was really fun, and relatively easy. I started off with finger sandwiches, which are a staple of every tea party! I made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on white and wheat bread, and cut them into small squares (be sure to cut the crusts off). I also used strawberry cream cheese to make sandwiches, but you could use just about anything.
To add some color, I made veggie plates, which looked nice on the table, and were healthy. I also served cheese and crackers, and got the butterfly shaped crackers, and cut the cheese into shapes using cookie cutters.
We had tea to drink, of course, and I put grape juice in a pitcher, in case the girls didn’t like the tea. I tried to get a fruity, caffine free tea, and the girls seemed to like it.
Since this wasn’t a birthday party, I didn’t have to worry about a cake, so I just made some fun desserts. I had chocolate brownies, scones with raspberry jam, and sugar cookie bars. The sugar cookie bars were amazing, and I was able to use three different colors of frosting to make the dessert tray look more fun!
