In honor of Motherʼs Day, I invited a few of my fellow mom friends over for a Mother’s Day Backyard Tea Party. Just a few hours without our beautiful children to chat, enjoy some delicious treats, dress up and enjoy a perfect spring morning. See all of the details below!
Usually, tea parties have a stigma of being too stiff, boring or not fun, but I wanted to switch it up and show people a different way to approach a tea party. Below are all of the details of the colorful spring tea party! Hopefully, it inspires you to host one of your own!
Tea Party Food
On the morning of the tea
Made a large fruit bowl with fresh strawberries, blueberries
I wanted a variety of tea so I served a fruity green tea, a marshmallow macaron herbal tea
Tea Party Decorations
Instead of doing the flowers myself like I usually do, this time I asked the very talented Erin of White Fig Designs to create my colorful, tea party vision using garden roses, tulips and a plethora of gorgeous flowers.
She blew me away with the most gorgeous arrangements ever! My favorite flowers were the Parrot Tulips! We also had stunning individual arrangements as place settings, which the moms adored!
I wanted the overall theme to be cheerful and bright with some personal Motherʼs Day details. A few weeks before the tea party I asked my guests to send me a photo or 2 of their kids. We created the most precious photo name cards with their childrenʼs picture on them, so when they sat down they were greeted by a very familiar face
I used bright colored napkins and classic white tea cups with a mix of vintage silver. Above the food table, I hung some colorful Boden bunting, which added a little spunkiness to the party.
Tea Party Acitivity
I think it’s fun to add an activity to a party, even for adults. For the tea

Tea Party Cocktails
You can also serve some cocktails at your party!
Try out Earl Grey Cocktail or Peach Tea and Rum Cocktail!
Big thanks to the talented Krista Mason for capturing our Mother’s Day Tea Party!

I will love to do a” Tea party for Mother’s day at the library garden “
This is beautiful!!! Those mango colored napkins! Where did you get those from and what color are they?!?? They would be perfect for a party I am having for my parent’s 50th anniversary!
These are several years old but they are from World Market 🙂
Beautiful! Where can I find the green tea punch recipe as well as the Popsicle recipe?
AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL! I do have a few questions about your brilliant personal touches. How did you make the photo place cards? ADORABLE!!!! Same w/ the magnet pad? I am doing a birthday par~TEA for our 4 soon to be 5 year old but I would love to host something like this for my best of mom friends.
Thank you SO much!! I made the photo cards in Photoshop. Just took a digital photo my friends emailed me, then made them black and white and did the design in Photoshop. The magnet pad is from Pinehole Press (I LOVE their personalized items!!) Hope that helps! Thanks Kendra 🙂
