As a mom of three girls, I love a good tea party!  Tiny sandwiches, tea and anything fancy..."those are a few of my favorite things!"  

Some of my favorite memories from when my daughters were young, were of our countless tea parties. Chances are pretty good, that if you have daughters, you have had a few tea parties yourself!  A few months ago my mom and I went to a Valentine's Day Tea at a local restaurant, and while we had a delightful day together, I couldn't help but notice all the food was full of sugar.  It got my mind working on how to make some of those tea sandwiches more healthy!     

Whether you are pulling up tiny chairs to a tea party with your little one, serving pretty tea sandwiches at a baby or bridal shower, or celebrating your mom for Mother's Day - these yummy sandwiches are tasty and don't leave you feeling guilty after eating them!  I think they are the perfect appetizer for a special brunch or party, but honestly, you can make them anytime at all!  Who doesn't love baby avocado toasts?
