Looking for some fun Mother’s Day ideas? Look no further! Out of all the Mother’s Day gift ideas out there, my favorite is the one thing mom really wants—time! Give your mom a fun Mother’s Day date by enjoying each other’s company and sipping tea. Not sure how to host a Mother’s Day tea party? 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 everyday 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! 😛
