These are part of our Royal Wedding Tea menu created to celebrate Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding!  If you want to get in on the Royal Festivities you can check out the full menu above.  This menu would also work for any Afternoon Tea or gal pal get together.

We started with Prosecco, which tasted even better because it was chilled in this fancy ice bucket with floral ice cubes!  These are so pretty and so easy to make!  It only takes a few minutes to raid your garden for tiny blossoms, fill an ice cube tray and float a blossom in the water! The trick is to use small blossoms. I used violas or Johnny Jump Ups. Regular pansy blossoms were too big and just made a coloured blob in the cube.

The sandwich tier of the tea stand also had Rolled Tea Sandwiches and Strawberry Chicken Salad Tea Sandwiches which were both delicious!

You could make these a day ahead which is a bonus, especially if you have a lot of menu items.  Just be sure to seal them very tightly in a container or plastic wrap so the bread doesn’t get stale.
