Teeny Tiny Food
writes, "I'm officially giving you permission to play with your food! Summer is the perfect time to have a mini tea party or a micro picnic. Meals are more fun when the food is tiny."
Tiny plates and cups
Food cut into tiny shapes

1) Tiny Dishes
Look around your kitchen for your tiniest dishes {a tiny tea set would be perfect}. We made little plates by cutting off the bottom circle from yogurt cups. We used a plastic bottle cap for a drinking cup. A vintage handkerchief was our tablecloth. You could make personalized construction paper placemats and mini napkins - or even a tiny menu.

2) Tiny Food
Use a tortilla instead of bread to make your favorite sandwich, then cut out small shapes. {Or use a rolling pin to flatten out a piece of bread.} Fruit & vegetables can be cut to make mini shapes. We cut banana shapes, then dipped them in sprinkles.

Other Mini Food Ideas:
~ Carrot matchsticks
~ Lettuce cut into the tiniest salad
~ Berries topped with a dot of whipped cream
~ Mini store-bought cookies & crackers
~ Cereal shapes as cookies
~ Cheese & cracker sandwiches {slice string cheese into circles}
~ Herbal tea served in a thimble
~ Garden-fresh peas
~ Cherry tomatoes
~ Tiny champagne grapes - they are adorable!
~ Watermelon cut into the smallest triangles

More Ideas:
~ Make mini invitations and throw a teeny tiny party.
~ Do you have a picky eater or someone who won't try a certain food? You might be surprised what they'll eat when it's served on fairy-sized dishes.
