Mommy-Daughter-Dolly Tea Menu



For our recent Mother-Daughter-Dolly tea party, I asked friends Stacey and Cathy to contribute to our simple menu. I made scones, almond cream, roseberry hot tea and cake. Stacey brought fresh fruit, and Cathy brought tea sandwiches. It was a tea-party perfect combination that both mommies and daughters enjoyed.




A pretty pink cake stand made a perfect table for the littlest party guests: the girls' 18-inch American Girl and Our Generation dolls.




Along with miniature versions of our cake and invitation, the doll table featured tea party items from the Our Generation Tea Party Accessory Set.




Cathy brought a variety of tea sandwiches, including PB&Js, chicken salad sandwiches and a delicious twist on cucumber sandwiches. Find her recipe below.



Southern Cucumber-Tomato Sandwiches
I think I could eat these teatime treats every day.
White bread
Tomatoes
Cucumbers
8-ounce package cream cheese
1 to 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
1 package Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix
Mix cream cheese, mayonnaise to taste, and dressing mix. Use a cookie cutter, drinking glass or teacup to cut bread into rounds. Spread dressing mix generously on a round of bread, and top with slices of tomato and cucumber. Top with second bread round. Repeat for remaining tea sandwiches. Reserve remaining dressing in refrigerator to use as a dip or sandwich spread.
