Mother’s day is a special day for all members of a family. Your children will want to celebrate this special and memorable day with you. If you have very small children, why not plan a mother and daughter tea party? A festive gathering such as this can bring together all of the mothers and daughters of your family, friends and coworkers. To plan a tea party, use your imagination. Put up creative decorations, serve delicious treats, and pick out your favorite music. You can even increase your children’s enjoyment by dressing them in kids costumes.
How to Plan a Tea Party
A mother’s day tea party can be as simple or as elaborate as you would like to make it. If the weather is nice, you can host the gathering in your backyard. An indoor party will be preferable if the weather is unpredictable. Once you have the location set, you’re ready to plan the rest.
Flowers help to make all occasions festive. Choose your favorite flowers of all color varieties. Roses and lilacs are good options. Place the flowers on tables, near entryways and on shelves away from the reach of small children.
A tea party is not a tea party without a wide assortment of teas. Earl Grey and English Breakfast teas are good options for adults. For children, offer herbal tea varieties such as chamomile and peppermint tea, and juice.
Tea sandwiches and crackers and cheese are possible options for finger foods. Small cookies and fruit tarts will also make the children happy.
Entertainment and Kids Costumes
Speaking of making the children happy, dressing them in kids costumes adds a fun element to the festivities. Mothers and daughters can dress in similar costumes to reinforce the bond. Also choose your favorite pieces of music to uplift everyone’s spirit and maybe even inspire everyone to dance after they’re done with tea and cookies.
