Pear, walnut, blue cheese tea sandwiches -- can I make these ahead?

I'm making a variety of tea sandwiches for a bridal shower tomorrow, but I'm hesitating about making the pear, walnut, blue cheese ones (http://texification.blogspot.com/2009...) ahead of time. For the others I've spread butter on the bread and topped with wax paper and a damp paper towel (and I'll do the same for these if I make the ahead), but I'm nervous about how the pears will keep. Will they be okay, or should I wait till tomorrow for these?

    I'd wait as the pears will likely brown. Sounds great though - I hope you've been blessed with the wonderful pears I'm finding lately :)

        I would think you could do the cheese and walnuts now and then add the pear slices tomorrow right before you serve.

          you can slice the pears and acidulate them earlier in the day though, to save a bit of time. those will hold a few hours.
