Recently I detailed the second course of an Alice in Wonderland Tea Party Menu: Finger Sandwiches & Savories.
In Part 2, I’m outlining the beverages, scones and desserts served as the first and third courses.
I had so much fun researching and selecting all the food and drinks for the Wonderland tea party. There were so many tempting recipes to choose from! For more ideas and inspiration, bee sure to check out my Pinterest board, Party: Alice in Wonderland.
Because the Unbirthday Party was held in the summertime, it was actually an iced tea party. And, rather than being held at English tea time from 3-5 PM, the luncheon began at 1 PM.
In addition to the Wonderland tea party, there were mad games (including flamingo croquet), and a My Favorite Things gift exchange. With the party going until very late in the afternoon, I spaced the three courses of food between all the various activities.
Last June, in Alice in Wonderland, Unbirthday Party Reveal, I provided an overview of the mad event, with glimpses of decorations, tables, favors, and games. Also included was the iced tea party menu, but without much in the way of descriptions and pictures.
Since then, I’ve received many inquiries asking for more details and photos of the beverages and food, recipes, and how I pulled off such an ambitious tea party menu.
In the meantime, I have shared other particulars and tutorials from the My Favorite Things Party. It was the fourth time for the annual event; each with a different theme.
You may have viewed several of these DIY posts as part of the monthly Pinterest Challenge; a blog hop hosted by Erlene of My Pinterventures. As always, bee sure to check out all the Pinterest-inspired projects at the end.
Today, I’m going to outline the second course of the tea party menu, which includes finger foods and a fabulous sandwich cake.

This month, I’m sharing the bee theme party foods and beverages I created for the very first My Favorite Things Party. The entire menu of beverages, appetizers and desserts was inspired and made from pictures and recipes found on Pinterest. Yep, every single one!
My Pinterest search was for bee theme party foods and beverages that included honey and or lemon as a key ingredient. I also looked for desserts that looked like bees, hives, etc.
Although I took a few “shortcuts” here and there, I was delighted with the results and I think you will bee too. (more…)
