I can’t express how much I love hosting garden tea parties for my little one and her friends. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do as a child, and they absolutely love them – it makes everyone happy! Maybe you’re thinking of hosting your first tea party and are looking for some tasty food ideas to put on the table or perhaps you are simply looking for some sandwich ideas to up your sandwich game – I’ve got you!
With the help of Springvale Foods, UK fine foods, we’ve put together some of our favorite delicious sandwiches which will be a hit at your next garden tea party. Before you look at recipes, think about the bread. Don’t settle for store-bought bread! If you have the time, Springvale Foods recommends making your own bread with Shipton Mill flour. I know… making bread might seem like a hassle but trust me, it will be worth it! Boo Roo and Tiger Too shared an easy basic bread recipe if you are looking for a simple recipe to start with.
