A Classic Celebration for Mother's Day
Sometimes a card just isn't enough to show how amazing a mother is. Why not take this Mother's Day to the next level with a tea party to celebrate the woman who raised you?
A tea party is the perfect way to add extra charm to a lunch gathering while still being relaxed and fun. There are so many treat options to ensure mom gets the finger foods she loves, and guests can wear their best spring dresses for an exciting girl's day!
Flower bouquets are a timeless gift option but this Mother's Day, step up the floral presentation by creating colorful centerpieces for each table.
Scout local thrift stores for vintage teapots or spray paint newer containers for a rustic touch. Mix and match the sizes and fill them with clusters of mom's favorite blooms.
Another eye-catching way to bring the best of spring's beauty to mom is with teacups placed on cupcake stands. Clip some roses or peonies and place a single bud in each teacup, alternating the colors on each level.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to tea party snacks! If mom is in to health and fitness, opt for homemade dips, crackers and veggies to avoid any sugar. Looking for a sweet treat instead? Fill colorful china plates with cupcakes, cookies or macaroons.
For the actual tea, hot or cold is where to begin. Large glass pitchers with iced tea are great for touching in with Southern roots, but hot water over tea bags gives a more classical feel. Instead of narrowing down flavor choices, buy a variety pack to satisfy a range of taste buds.
What are you waiting for? Gather up your grandmothers, aunts, cousins or even close family friends who all mean the most to you on Mother's Day. They are sure to adore the special little touches that come with hosting a tea party!
