Tea Time with Your Besties
To be honest, I wanted to do a little research on just how the Brits do teatime.
Dress is formal attire, but no need to extend your pinkie finger. That is not a thing.

3 oz. softened cream cheese
3 T. sugar
1 C. whipping cream

What to Serve on a Three-tiered Stand
Tea sandwiches, such as cucumber sandwich, egg salad sandwich, and smoked salmon and dill sandwich, are served on the lower tier of the three tiered stand. The middle tier is scones, breads and pastries served with clotted cream and jam. The clotted cream goes under the jam on your scone. And the top tier is for sweets, such as macarons, petit fours, and madeleines.
