When your wedding anniversary is the day before a major Royal Wedding, the only real option for celebrating is having a tea party!
The theme of our (dinner) tea party was finger sandwiches. I made six kinds…cucumber, seafood salad, gouda with garlic aioli, roltini, turkey with pineapple-pepper jelly, and roast beef with horseradish and arugula.
