Mother’s Day Tea Party Inspiration

I can’t think of anything more lady-like than a tea party, and I just love the idea of a sweet tea party on Mother’s Day. Mother’s Day is a special day. It’s the one day every year we show just how grateful and thankful we are for all of mom’s hard work. A Mother’s Day Tea Party is a great way for mom and her daughters to spend quality time together laughing, talking and snacking on delicious treats and tea sandwiches.

My own Mom and I recently had a little Mom and Daughter Tea Party, so I though I would share some pics and recipes to give you some tea party ideas.

You simply cannot go wrong with flowers. Whether they are fresh cut flowers, silk flowers, or even a floral tablecloth – you should use them all. Mix and match your prettiest pastel linens, and pull out your best china and tea set.

Stack your cake plates and use a variety of different platters and serving pieces. A tea party doesn’t have to be all matchy matchy.

For our tea party, we used this diy sugar cubes method to make some pretty rosebud sugar cubes for our tea.

We used rolled paper doilies, bits of ribbon, and stick on flowers to make pretty tussie mussies, and each held a spoon. A tussie mussie is a small flower bouquet that is usually given as a gift. They became popular during the reign of Queen Victoria (1837-1901) when they were a popular fashion accessory. I think they are the perfect addition to a Mother’s Day tea party.

Our simple but scrumptious menu included raspberry tea, veggie and herb cheese tea sandwiches, mini tomato and goat cheese tarts, jam filled butter cookies, and pretty caramel hazelnut mousse tartlets.

I think it’s always fun to ask all the guests to wear “Victorian Attire” and required Hats and Gloves. If you have them available, place extra hats and gloves at the door.

Will you be having a Mother-Daughter Tea Party for Mother’s Day?

    This looks like a perfect tea! My daughter and I enjoyed tea on Tuesdays when she was homeshcooled. It was a great way to spend time together and slow down a bit. Of course, the food was great too!

    Your table setting is so pretty. I probably won’t be doing a Mother’s Day tea, but my daughter and I like to have Tea parties all the time. I want to try the Caramel Hazelnut Mousse Tartlets.

    Oh, how I love the idea of a tea party. I’d so love to have one. Sadly, my daughter is past that age. and I’m, not sure if my son would play tea party with me. He probably would!

    What a beautiful tea party! My mom, daughter and I have often gone to high tea together at some of the local hotels and we love it. Will have to try doing this at home.

    how beautiful! I think my mom would love this more than any other gift. We could really use the time to spend together, too! We rarely get a chance anymore now that I have kids. I can only imagine what my little ones would do to that lovely table!

    A mothers day tea is a wonderful idea. I love the snacks you picked. Too bad my husband would never set up anything like this. Thanks for sharing at #HomeMattersParty
