Mother’s Day is just a few weeks away. Do you have anything special planned? Start a new tradition with Mother’s Day this year and have a fun and fancy tea party! Here are a few ideas on how to host a Mother’s Day Tea party and help make the celebration entertaining for everyone! Remember..don’t make mom do any of the work, it’s her day! Enjoy!
1. Send Invites. Invite friends and family to celebrate all the special moms in your life with these super cute (and free!) printable invitations from Confetti Sunshine.
2. Set the Table: Dress up your table with a pretty pastel palette. If you have access to vintage tea cups and saucers, this is the occasion to use them! It will give an authentic feel to the celebration! This lovely table setting is from A Fabulous Fete.If you don’t want to risk using the good china (especially around little ones) these floral cups and plates are a fun and really adorable alternative! (And less cleanup!) This floral tableware shop is now available for purchase in our shop! (Source photo).
3. Plan the menu: The menu doesn’t have to be complicated. Just put out a selection of assorted finger sandwiches. These go wonderfully with tea. A cheese board and grapes will also compliment the sandwiches and work great as a nice light snack!
For dessert, serve shortbread cookies, miniature pastries, like éclairs and petite fours. Use tiered trays and platters like this one above from Sugar and Charm as a lovely display for your desserts.
Combine tea in a dessert and what do you get? Early Grey Cupcakes! Oh So Very Pretty has the recipe for these yummy goodies.
And we can’t forget the most important part of the menu.. tea! Black tea is the traditional tea served but nowadays there are so many options! You can also offer green tea and herbal teas for your guests.

Have a wonderful Mother’s Day and happy hosting!
