In celebration of mothers — and all the special women in your life — throw an outdoor tea party that’s worthy of the Queen at your home this Mother’s Day. This will give you full control of the menu and you can make your menu based on your mother’s favorite sweets and teas. All you need is plenty of fresh flowers, colorful teacups, some incredible tea options, and some delicious snacks and desserts.
Flowers: Get as many fresh blooms as you can, as lush floral arrangements in pitchers and vases will really set the scene.
Floral Teacups: For a relaxed and eclectic vibe, use an assortment of floral teacups and teacups. Don’t forget to add some vintage teaspoons as well.
Loose-Leaf Tea: Treat your guests to some classic teas as well as some they’ve never tried. For Tea’s Sake Mango Tango herb and fruit, Afternoon Escape, and Shades of Earl Grey black tea make perfect afternoon tea options. Make sure to set out milk, honey, and sugar in colorful dishes and containers.
Sweet Treats: Make sure to serve plenty of finger foods that pair well with tea and are easy to snack on. Earl Grey tea infused scones, Chai tea infused cookies, tea infused poppy seed shortbread cookies, and mini tea cakewiches with green tea infused icing make great tea party options.
Fun Drinks: We know that tea is the main beverage that will be served at a tea party but it’s important to give your guests a few beverage options in case they aren’t feeling tea. Cold brew iced tea is always a refreshing option, while earl grey infused cocktails are the perfect option for ladies looking for something with a kick.
