*** Afternoon tea parties are a wonderful way to practice good table manners. You can make a variety of little sandwiches and serve them with iced tea or fruit juice. Remember to use your napkins and say “please” and “thank you.”

This lovely tradition started in England in the early 19th. Century. It is a small meal between lunch and dinner, usually served in the late afternoon. A variety of food is served and may include dainty sandwiches, small slices of cake, sweet tarts and scones. Tea is always served.
