Holiday Tea Sandwiches

I think Holiday Tea Sandwiches are great fun to make!


I love making finger sandwiches for events, holidays, school functions, brunches!


They are such easy fun festive ways to celebrate all your party needs.


Whenever you want to impress someone at any function, as long as you have the right cookie cutter, you can really put a smile on the kids and young-at-heart faces.


Easy to make and fun to eat!


From cute little Valentine's Day all year long holidays to Christmas, just get some cute little cutters for these little sandwiches.


They really go fast at any party function.


I make them every year on Halloween with pumpkins and ghosts and then 4th of July with star cutters and make fillings to match the theme of the holiday.


Christmas filled with red and green ideas.


Get creative, I will give you plenty of filling ideas, you just need to get the right cookie cutters for that holiday, party, or school event theme!

Kick back and make a few finger sandwiches that are the perfect pick food any time of the day.

Really Anything Goes!



Seriously, the filling can be easy!


Ham salad, chicken salad, fruits, and cream cheese, as simple as lettuce tomato and bacon, cookie spreads, Nutella, peanut butter and jelly, cream cheese with nuts and honey, the list goes on and one!


You just need to get creative.


Even using leftover chicken is great adding barbecue sauce or hot sauce!

Fun for School Lunches and More!

  1. use school book cookie cutters
  2. cut into animal shapes for preschoolers
  3. whatever holiday is current, using a cookie cutter to match the day IE: Valentine's Day then on to St. Patrick's Day, 4th of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.
  4. tint the filling by adding condiments or crushed herbs
  5. just boil up some chicken quickly and make barbecued chicken, chicken salad, hot sauce chicken, or just mix with some ranch dressing
  6. use spinach dip for the filling during St. Patrick's Day, a festive filling all green!

Kids Love to Make these too!



I also love to use my cookie cutters to make animal shapes for the kids when they want grilled cheese or their favorite fillings, like tuna or egg salad. This is perfect for school lunches too.


During the game day season, I also have football cookie cutters, round cutters for baseballs and decorate them with the team theme colors and fill them with the guy's favorite, pulled shredded pork.


Getting creative with colorful foods is so much fun. I always use strawberries or raspberries for Valentine's Day. St. Patrick's Day is easy filling them with arugula and tinted egg salad that's green.


It's perfect little finger foods, especially for any kind of gathering you may have.


I like to use blueberries for the 4th of July.


Halloween is so much fun doing pumpkins, ghosts, and other cookie-cutter shapes.
