This is a sponsored blog post on behalf of Great Day Farms, but my love of eggs is all my own <3

Just a couple of days ago, I returned from a lovely trip to both London and Dubai. With Dubai, you’ve got the land of YES – it’s extravagant, fueled by tourism, and grandeur visions of BIG THINGS. Case in point:

The world’s tallest building (the elevator takes just sixty seconds to reach the top!)

The world’s most luxurious hotel, Burj Al Arab (this is the sailboat looking hotel in Dubai)

Dinner in the Sky

Super nervous because my entire table is 200 meters in the sky!

 

Now London, on the other hand, is full of old-world European charm with a mix of new. While the luxury of Dubai was nice, I fell in LOVE with London. The architecture, the accents, the history…it transported me back in time.

Between actually visiting London, finishing all of the seasons of Downton Abbey, and starting Season 2 of The Crown, I’m just a wee bit obsessed with TEA PARTIES. Sure, tea parties are things I do on the regular w/ the kiddos, but I’m finding myself going completely out-of-my-way to indulge in them. Buying #allthetea, making #allthefood, and sticking that pinky sky high.

Sigh.

I may need an intervention soon.

I started to think about different things that could be served at a tea party, and thought I’d put a spin on my dad’s famous potato salad and instead make an egg salad. This turned out really well and was quickly devoured by all. You don’t have to keep this just for tea parties – you can make them for dinner parties, potlucks, luncheons, and more. If you pair it with Yellow Tail wine, you can get super fancy! Look for Great Day Farms coupons on the neck of Yellow Tail wine! Or, pair it with tea and jars of candy for the kiddos. I promise you – it will be loved by all!

A couple of notes: 

I prefer using Great Day Farms Hard-Boiled eggs because they do the prep work for me…and no chance of getting egg shells in the salad (isn’t that the worst?)! You can find these eggs in the DELI section of Walmart. English Tea Party Egg Salad Sandwiches recipe at idyllicpursuit.com
