Picture if you will: in a bygone era, in a more genteel time, in a flower garden in full bloom, a group of well dressed ladies sitting with legs lightly crossed at the ankles, white gloves in their laps, sipping on tea from fine china cups, nibbling on dainty little sandwiches and engaging in delightful conversation.
And in my vision those sandwiches are Cucumber Sandwiches and Watercress Sandwiches and look something like this:
I love being a “boy mom”. But, let’s be honest, having a Tea Party is just not his “cup of tea”. Ok, bad jokes aside, he might like the tea and goodies but sitting and having a quiet conversation is not going to happen. Unless I want to talk about Ninja Turtles and Super Mario.
And then I remind myself that renting a tuxedo is much easier and cheaper than a prom dress and I love being a boy mom again.
These sandwiches would be perfect for a girls birthday party, a Mother’s Day Tea or a Bridal Shower. Or have them for lunch like I did as soon as I thought I had enough photos for this post.
I forgot how much I love Cucumber Sandwiches. And the Watercress and Egg Sandwiches were pretty good too.
