When inviting someone for afternoon tea, its always good to include a savoury option for diabetics. Diabetics don't always broadcast their ailment, but are always delighted to find a savoury option at afternoon teas

A good one for vegetarians is grated carrot, peanut butter and golden sultanas. For nut allergies substitute hummous.

I was put in charge of the food for a wake! After I had finished panicking I decided to do this selection of sandwiches amongst other bits. Lets just say that were very easy, if a bit time consuming (2hrs!) but they went within 10 minutes! Will do these again for another large gathering.
