Vegetable Cream Cheese Tea Sandwiches
Isn't it so much fun to have a tea party? Whether you are an adult or a kid, tea parties are tons of fun! With the release of the new Downton Abbey DVD, I wanted to throw a little tea party with lots of tea of course, vegetable tea sandwiches, cute teacups and for us to watch the Downtown Abbey DVD.

Rainbow veggie sandwich
Typical tea sandwiches are just cucumber and cream cheese on bread with the crust cut off. To make things more flavorful and a little more interesting, I added a bunch of veggies and used veggie cream cheese. The way to make these sandwiches delicious but still dainty is to finally slice, chop or shred the veggies. You don't want a big thick slice of carrots but a light amount of shredded carrots is perfect for example.

Feel free to use any vegetables that you like but some great ones are thinly sliced bell peppers, cucumber, tomato or red onion. Add some diced green onion and shredded carrots too. It's fun to use a rainbow of veggies for this easy recipe for color. In true Nutritionist Reviews fashion, I used whole-grain bread for more fiber and nutrients.

Also, if you feel like skipping the cream cheese, feel free to swap hummus or guacamole. Either of those would taste great! Or use another savory cream cheese flavor or plain cream cheese.

Downton Abbey DVD tea party
We always have a ton of tea on hand and love serving a variety of tea to guests. Make a big kettle of hot water and either make small pots of different kinds of tea or pour the hot water in the teapots and let guests add their own teabags to their cups if everyone wants different kinds of tea. Just saying, some fresh scones would be amazing with the tea, vegetable cream cheese tea sandwiches and to go along with the Downton Abbey movie.

If you love the Downton Abbey show, you will love the movie. It recently came out on DVD at Walmart and and makes a fun tea party theme. We just dressed casual but how fun would it be to dress up fancy or even from the Downton Abbey time period? The DVD features all of the characters that you love back together! It is an expansion of the TV series. This movie is so good and it is fun to get to see the characters again! Head to Walmart and purchase the new release of Downton Abbey DVD today!
