Make life a little less ordinary with these simple but luxurious finger sandwiches. If the cost of lobster is too much when combined with the flowers you've organised for your love, just substitute it with prawns; it will be just as delicious.

These delicate lobster sandwiches pair perfectly with Neil Perry's peach cocktails.
