  Tea Sandwiches!
Definition of a Tea Sandwich:  "A tea sandwich is a small prepared sandwich meant to be eaten at afternoon teatime to stave off hunger until the main meal."

Tea Sandwich in different forms: wikipedia
"The tea sandwich may take a number of different forms, but should be easy to handle, and should be capable of being eaten in two bites." "It may be a long, narrow sandwich, a triangular half-sandwich, or a small biscuit." "It may also be cut into other decorative shapes with a cookie cutter."

Cookie Cutter Shaped Sandwiches by: gone-ta-pott.com
Little tea sandwiches cut with cookie cutters are very popular at baby showers and childrens tea parties. They are also popular at theme tea parties and garden parties.

Sandwich Bread wikipedia
"The bread is traditionally white, thinly sliced, and buttered."  (no matter what the filling is) "The bread crust is cut away cleanly from the sandwich after the sandwich has been prepared but before serving." "Modern bread variations might include wheat, pumpernickel, sour dough or rye bread."

Sandwich Tips:
Colored Breads by: Pam Svoboda
Colored homemade bread is very popular for little girls tea parties and usually favor pinks and blues. Garden Teas are popular with colored breads in different shades of green with a green herb sprig atop each one. If a sandwich is made with edible flowers then it's popular to color the bread to match the color of the edible flower that is being used. A great example of this is a open face sandwich made with  pink bread topped with a decorative swarl of cream cheese that's topped with pink edible rose pedals.  Green, green and more green sandwiches are even a favorite for St. Patrick's Day tea parties as well.

Sandwich Filling
"Fillings are light, and are "dainty" or "delicate" in proportion to the amount of bread."  "Spreads might include cream cheese or mayonnaise mixtures, and the sandwiches often feature fresh vegetables such as radishes, cucumber, asparagus, or watercress." "The cucumber tea sandwich in particular is considered the quintessential tea sandwich." "Other popular tea sandwich fillings include pimento cheese, smoked salmon, fruit jam, curried chicken, and egg salad."
