So this weekend I'm having a luncheon for a friend who's getting married soon, with a tea party theme. Unfortunately my co-host had to have emergency surgery so I'm doing a bit of last minute scrambling and would love your advice. The guest of honor is vegetarian and hates mushrooms, so we'd like to keep the menu meat and fungus free. There's going to be about 10 to 15 women attending and starts at 1 pm, so more food is probably better than less.
veggie platter with dips (any ideas?)
finger sandwiches: cucumber, egg salad, cheese
hot food: bite size quiche, something else?
scones with a variety of jams
variety of tiny cookies: sugar, chocolate dipped, etc
Currently only planning on hot tea and water, but should I also make some iced tea and/or lemonade?
I'm struggling here. I've got a ton of white peacock feathers and pretty glass bottles and vases, but I feel like it needs more. Roses? Mixed in with the feather vases or on their own in bowls?
Mismatched set of rose-printed tea cups, saucers and plates. Silver and china platters for food.
What do you think?
