Fancy finger sandwiches

Tea sandwiches are usually cut into dainty, triangles, fingers, or squares, which are the classic shapes for Afternoon Tea. However, a fun idea is to use a sandwich or a cookie cutter, to cut them into some fancy, bridal shower, romantic, and wedding themed shapes. Hearts, umbrellas, flowers, and wedding bells, for example, would be a a great choice.
Party related shapes
You might also cut your sandwiches into other kinds of cute shapes; maybe for instance, keys or houses, for an around the house shower, flowers, watering cans, or butterflies, for a garden bridal shower, or perhaps shapes such as shells or starfish for a beach theme, and teapots and cupcakes for a tea party, or for an afternoon tea.
Tips for making sandwiches
