Tea Party Sandwiches
Hosting a tea party is a simple but elegant way to host a small group of friends in celebration of a special event. This type of party would be ideal for a bridal shower, ladies group, or garden club meeting.When a few close friends are invited over, the hostess pours tea, usually from a small table in the living room.
Invitation styles can vary. For an informal tea, the hostess may send an evite with the date and time. For a small party, the invitations may be given by calling the friends you would like to attend.
For a larger party whose purpose is to raise awareness of a
organization, celebrate a birthday, or a tea party for a bride,
should be printed or written on small white cards.
When written or printed invitations of any kind are issued, they should be placed in matching envelopes. Invitations should be received by the guests one week before the date of the event. Refreshments for a small party may consist of bread and butter sandwiches served with a cup of freshly brewed hot tea. Refreshments may include an assortment of tiny sandwiches, tid-bits, cookies and cakes. Coffee may be served in addition to tea. In hot weather an iced beverage is substituted for tea or coffee.
