Tomorrow I'm doing (at my suggestion, so not sure why I've got no ideas!) afternoon tea for about 20. Idea idiots high tea (ie quite substantial) for the kids and afternoon tea with booze for us. Help! Anyone have any menu/recipe ideas?
Idea is its high tea....
Is it cold and snowy where you are? You could do crumpets, toasted tea cakes, scones etc with some nice sandwiches and little cakes??
And make some cocktails in teapots
Ooh I like the cocktail idea
All totally brilliant! Thanks!
'High tea' for children used to include something like fish fingers - ie a simple 'main course' followed by the scones and cakes.As an adult I'd want the stuff cat suggested with tea - not sure what booze would go with that sort of food at that time of day TBH.It sounds like a lovely idea on a cold afternoon.
particularly suitable are long Island Ice Tea and winter Pimms!
Lovely idea - I used to do that lots when DS was young - a great way to see friends & no babysitting costs!Scones with cream & jam are a big treat!!
Thanks! It's my work team and we all have DCs between 2 and 8!
Brownies and blondiesHot mini croissants, you can buy them frozen, and bake as both sweet and savoury, with cheese and ham, or cheese and sliced apple/pearAlso one of my guys' fave recipe, get a tin of croissant dough, cut it into strips, twist, sprinkle with crushed Pringles, bake. Utterly fab.
