This post is part two in a series of three.
As I mentioned in the first post , we were on a limited budget for this tea party.
We also ended up feeding about 50 people although that is not how many I had planned on. There was a little communication glitch and I had actually planned on half that many!!
Thanks to the fact that I always err on the side of excess and a last minute call to my sweet husband to fix some more peanut butter and jelly sandwiches we did o.k!
Our tea party menu included:
Heart shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Since we knew our tea party audience would be young we went for kid friendly food. I found this great heart shaped sandwich cutter at a Harry & David’s outlet store but you can also order one here.
It is the perfect shape to take advantage of the entire peace of bread with very little waste!
White chocolate dipped strawberries with pink sugar sprinkles
Cupcakes, of course! I took the easy route with this one and used a cake mix but did make the frosting from scratch! I did up one batch of white cupcakes with pink frosting and another of chocolate with white frosting and pink sprinkles. I found some cute pink and white polka dot cupcake liners that worked perfect.
We served lemonade to the little ones but the grown ups enjoyed some tea – a nice selection of regular and herbal!
Several of the “maids” from the show came down to help us serve – they were so cute!
Fairly simple and easy tea party food!
