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
