PSA – Mother’s Day is May 8th! What better way to honor the mom in your life than to spend an afternoon together enjoying each other’s company and sipping tea. Not sure how to host a Mother’s Day tea? Here are some helpful hints:
Break out the fine china. If there ever was a time for using the good china, this is it. Mom deserves it! We got this particular set when we went to New Orleans 3 years ago. Don’t be afraid to combine the fine china with your every day items—in this case the saucer and cup are sitting on top of our dinner plates.
Consider dietary restrictions. As the host, it falls to you to make sure that everyone has something they can enjoy. I have gluten free, dairy free and vegan eaters in my family so it’s a bit more challenging for us, but there are so many options out there! If you opt to buy snacks instead of bake, that’s totally fine—just take them out of the packaging for a fancier feel (like I did with these tasties!).
Don’t forget the tea essentials. Besides tea bags, don’t forget lemon wedges, cream, sugar and sweetener.
Don’t forget your manners. Make sure you serve others (starting with the eldest) before you serve yourself.
Make mom proud and host a tea party that she’ll never forget—she deserves it! 🙂 Also, in case you are wondering it’s totally fine to serve coffee. Or sherry. Or whatever mom wants! 😛
