The words “tea party” typically bring to mind images of sweetly sophisticated young ladies, decked out in voluminous crinolines and lace dresses, with bouncing curls and rosy cheeks. Granted, dressing up for any occasion can be more fun than the occasion itself, but nothing could be further from the truth when it comes to hosting your own traditional tea party!

In addition to preparing a bevy of aromatic, invigorating, therapeutic, and downright delicious teas (we recommend Ceylon white and green varieties), no tea party is complete with out finger foods. Above, please see the recipe (handwritten on the adorbs Keep It in the Family Recipe Box cards) for traditional cucumber tea sandwiches. With a short list of ingredients, and an even shorter list of directions, these easy-to-make, delectable sandwiches, pictured below on the charming Chef’s Choice Plate Set, embody the dainty elegance of a true Victorian affair. And, of course, no tea party is complete with a savory selection of sweets – we recommend the Dozen It Look Yummy Kit to get your creative confection juices flowing!
