I have the Downton Abby cookbooks if that is any help.

The most obvious would be elements of a very British tea - crumpets, scones, tea sandwiches. There are also some esoteric British dishes like various "potted" foods.

A little later in time so not necessarily Victorian but very old school UK would be Coronation Chicken. I think it can be made into sandwiches.

Or perhaps you could get inspiration from Dickens novels like Miss Haversham's preserved wedding cake or fancy gruel inspired by Oliver Twist :-).

LOL LOL
My only concern is, since I'm only really imitating the "look" it's kind of an oldtimer couple, I want something that doesnt need too much education to understand, since lots of ppl wont know as much as you know Wink I want something they can easier relate to... like something old fashioned but upper class, that style...

Everyone thinks of tea and the traditional foods that are served at tea.

I’m not sure what you think is more obvious than English tea foods.

Scones!

Why are my kids so [boring] non creative - 3 little kallahs...

teatime theme - scones, victoria sponges, maybe one of those old fashioned bottles of lemonade? (pretty sure no teabags back then but they did have lemonade) Look for mini jam jars and butter packages to go with scones. you could also do triangular sandwiches with crusts removed. Here are a bunch of victorian food ideas - the teacakes and victoria sponge are probably the most practical. https://www.historyextra.com/p.....n-recipes/

You could also do an english breakfast (eggs, sausages, etc) but that is more complicated.

You could also make an old fashioned loaf of bread and send with some cheddar.
