When's the last time you showed your girlfriends how much you appreciate their friendship? This season of thanksgiving is the perfect time to do just that before the holiday rush begins!
The idea for an "I'm Grateful You're My Girlfriend" tea comes from the lovely Meredith Sinclair of Hoo Dee Hoo. She asked me for some party planning advice and we made a video so you can learn, too! Check out our suggestions for dish/drink/decor, plus a fun activity:
More tips for making tea sandwiches
1) Brioche bread is the best (most bakeries and upmarket grocery stores carry it). If you can't find any where you live, use thinly sliced white bread.
2) Fillings should be fairly smooth. If the filling is somewhat chunky (like chicken salad) run it through the food processor first. The sandwiches are easier to cut when fillings are smooth.
3) Build the sandwiches, then cut off crusts, and then cut diagonally. Have a wet rag or paper towel handy to wipe the knife while cutting sandwiches...a clean knife means a cleanly cut sandwich!
4) Garnish with ingredients that compliment the filling. For instance, a dab of stone ground mustard with a gherkin sliver atop a ham and cheese sandwich, or a bit of creme fraiche and dill for a salmon sandwich.
