Gather family and friends for an afternoon of fun. Consider serving an assortment of colorful fruit-flavored iced teas, such as Blueberry-Lemon Iced Tea, Governor's Mansion Summer Peach Tea Punch, or Citrus Iced Tea. Make tea sandwiches up to a day in advance. To prevent the bread from drying out, arrange sandwiches in a single layer in an airtight container, and cover loosely with a sheet of wax paper. Place a damp kitchen towel over the wax paper; cover and refrigerate. Brownies and bars baked in a 13- x 9-inch pan can be cut into 48 bite-size (1-inch) squares. Serves: 25
