While mom should really be celebrated every day, Mother’s Day is a great excuse to surprise the moms and mother figures in your life with something extra special. What better way to say thanks for all the unconditional love and support than with an afternoon tea party that’s just as colorful and sweet as she is.
We used teas from our Tea Story Gift Set with floral decorations and sweet treats to set the scene for this fun afternoon tea party. The colorful packages pair perfectly with bright springtime florals and sweet treats – perfect for a tea party for mom’s special day.
Our biggest inspiration for this tea party is bright, spring colors. We loved being able to build on the colors of our Tea Story set. However, you can just as easily use your mom’s favorite colors or work with colors and supplies you already have around.
We were also sure to incorporate lots of bright spring florals and fruity citrus elements. Fruit-flavored teas, citrus wedges, even a citrus- or floral-flavored cake are simple ways to add to the fun and colorful atmosphere of the party.
The nice part of this party is that it’s perfect for a last-minute get-togethers or a small surprise. You can easily recreate decorations using things you already have, things that you can gather in your backyard, or even things you can pick up at your local supermarket.
If you want mom to remember the fun times from your afternoon together make up a personalized selection of tea bags for her to take home – it makes for both a great gift and a sweet party favor.
