With only a couple of weeks until our gorgeous girls turn 1 we had an peacock themed early birthday tea party today ‘Up country’ (when you’re Cornish this defines anywhere north of the Tamar River 😋).
1/2 a pear cut into slices for the body
Quartered grapes and blueberries for the tail
Blueberry bits for the beak and eyes
Cucumber for the body
Slices of mozzarella topped with slices of tomatoes and 1/2 a small black olive each and a leaf of basil for the tail feathers
Avocado for the body with olive legs, beak and eyes
Slices of steamed courgette topped with cottage cheese and quarter of a cherry tomato each for the tail feathers.
Sliced pear for the body
Slices of kiwi fruit topped with half of a quartered blueberry and a slice of strawberry each for the tail feathers.
All served with some sweet potato wedges (par boiled then baked in the oven with a little olive oil and a sprinkle of Italian herbs) and pitta bread fingers.
These were enjoyed by all ages. In fact I liked the savoury combinations so much that I will make them again as canapés or snacks 😍
