We are having a tea party. We are having a tea party!

And you’re invited. You’re welcome.

Put on your prettiest dress or a sharp suit, and grab your coat and come to the parTEA!

On our menu, we will serve…

Three hot teas {earl grey cream (of course) . jasmine . chamomile fruit}

Two iced teas {georgia peaches . berries!}

Fresh fruit

And the yummiest tea sandwiches on this side of the Mississippi! I’ll even give you the recipe, but you must promise not to tell a soul (Martha Stewart told me)!

 

Tea Sandwiches

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh chives
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 16 very thin slices white bread
  • 1/4 pound Prosciutto or ham
  • Thinly sliced English cucumber
  • Ground pepper

In a small bowl, combine butter, chives, and mustard. Spread bread slices with a layer of seasoned butter. Top 8 bread slices with 2 slices each prosciutto and a layer of sliced cucumber. Season with pepper. Sandwich with remaining bread slices, buttered side down. With a sharp knife, cut off crusts, then cut each sandwich in half on the diagonal. Serve immediately or transfer to a platter and refrigerate, covered with plastic wrap, up to 3 hours.
