So I'm working on planning my mother's blessing, and I kinda just want to go with a "tea" theme.  My problem is coming up with suitable foods that are not reliant on grains.  I know if *I* eat that much grain in one day I'm going to make myself sick. 

 

Does anyone have any ideas of foods that I could put out at a tea that wouldn't stick out as being out of place, and not be heavy grain or fruit?  And it needs to be finger food, since we're skipping the utensils. 

 

The "traditional" foods would be finger sandwiches and baked goods, and I figured cut fruit would go nicely.  What can I add to that?

I would do some grains for others to have.

 

Have you had "Mary's gone crackers"? http://www.marysgonecrackers.com/crackers

 

their "Crackers" are small and would be good for cucumber type sandwiches with homemade mayo and a bit of watercress 

 

of-course clotted cream is a must-IMO

 

maybe some cheese small and cubed on fancy toothpicks with olives

 

hummus on something or pain with veggies cut really fancy (like big carrot chips)

 

just a few thoughts

 

and seasoned cream cheese piped into celery or nut butters in them

endive filled with seasoned cream cheese in rosettes
