  • How is the weather by you? It is really cold here. Something warm and cozy like chicken pot pie or something rich and hearty like lasagne would be good. Doesn't really sound like tea party food though...maybe some french dip sandwiches or french bread open faced chicken salad melt. Have some dainty little cookies/bisciuts and tea for dessert maybe.

  • its dark and gloomy (trying to snow) lol - we usually do pizza and a movie but daddy's working late.

    thinking about hitting the M&M meatshop down the road and picking up some finger food fun stuff.

    thinking cap is running. lol

  • scones with clotted cream and lemon curd
    finger sandwiches (cream cheese with thinly sliced cucumer; watercress and butter; etc.)

  • thanks!

    we did lemon tarts (the lemon comment reminded me about the jar of lemon curd in the fridge)

    mini pizzas (somehow we're out of bread)

    I got out my paring knives and cut veggies into flowers and pretty things.

    fancy crackers and some cute little dainty cookies.

    they LOVED it! got out the china, silver, crystal and the pretty candles.
