Olympic fever is heating up this summer and we have been on the edge of our seat watching the games. To celebrate and enjoy an Olympic party at home, Arnold, Brownberry and Oroweat Breads (also the Official Bread Supplier of Team U.S.A.) have shared some fun tips on how to thrown your very own English tea party complete with signature Cucumber Sandwiches!
How to Throw an English Tea Party:
- Start with the table and arrange a nice tablecloth to set the tone for your food (Gingham is popular in London).
- Place your finger foods on a cake stand in the center of the table. Popular finger foods include scones, tarts and tea sandwiches.
- When making the tea sandwich, think dainty. It'??s important start with a good base, like Arnold®/Brownberry®/Oroweat® Health-full® 10 Grain breads. Top with a light layer of condiment, preferred sandwich meat, and a thin slice of cucumber or watercress. Top with the remaining bread. Trim the crusts and cut into quarters.
- And remember, events like Olympics viewing parties are not an excuse to disregard healthy eating. Eat nutritiously during all the fun by choosing Arnold®/Brownberry®/Oroweat® Breads to still get fiber and whole grain goodness.
