Tea parties are perfect a fun and relaxing time. They are also a great way to connect with your loved ones or friends. Throwing a tea party for Mother’s Day is a great way to show your mother how much you care by taking time to spend with her over a cup of tea. What better way could there be to spend Mother’s Day anyway?
The idea of a Mother’s Day tea party is grand but it will take a conglomerate of smaller ideas that will need to come together to pull the event off. It is wise to go with your instincts with a pinch of your mother’s taste.
To really have a “party” you will need more than just you and your mother, so create your invitation list. The invitations will need to match your ideal theme of the event. It is a great idea to invite some of you and your mother’s close relatives or friends – mother/daughter of course to pull off a Mother’s Day tea party.
Tea is the Main Ingredient for a Successful Tea Party
Some ideas for your menu will depend on your taste; however, the main component will be the tea. It is traditional to serve black tea so make sure it is available. With all the different brews and blends of teas these days, you may want to add some herbal or green teas too. It is a great idea to have lemon, sweeteners, maybe some honey, milk and cream available for your guests as well.
As far as the rest of the menu there are many ideas to choose from. Since drinking tea is not the only thing you will be doing, make sure to have some tasty treats accessible but make sure to have a healthy option as well. Fruit trays or fruit salad are great for tea parties. Make sure to add a favorite food of your mothers.
Make Your Tea Party Fun with Imagination
Maybe you use to play tea party with your mother when you were just a little girl. A great idea to make your tea party event even more special is to make it sentimental. Have your guests “play” dress up. As you probably dressed up for your little girl parties, this gives an open door for you and your guests to reminisce over the great childhood you had and the moments you shared with your mothers.
Set the Table for a Queen
Since your mother was the queen of your house when you were growing, make her feel like she still is. Try to find tiered serving dishes, decorative trays, and vintage tea cups with matching saucers. This will not only look majestic it will feel special.
Take your time to plan your Mother’s Day tea party to make it perfect for your mother’s special day. This will be a memory in the making and something you will be able to look back on for years to come. Make sure to take pictures of this special day so that you can share with your daughter in the future.
