Do something special for Mother’s day and create 7 ideas for a charming mother’s day garden tea party.
Plan something special for the mother in your life. This year I am planning a mother’s day garden tea party for all my friends who are moms. Since my mom is no longer with me. She is indeed in spirit. I thought it be fun to create something I can share this special day with.
I am going to set up this garden tea party in my backyard garden. Since the theme is the tea party, its actually easy to create, budget-friendly too. I knew a tea party theme would be a perfect theme for my sister since she is a lover of teas and desserts. I went for more of a vibe with blue and white china, and plenty of plants, flowers with nature as the backdrop.
1. Choose a theme
1. Choose a theme for the garden tea party. I went with a French country theme. Imagine having tea set in the french countryside.
2.China and accessories.
I had matching blue & white china with matching pedestal cake plate, white linens, vintage sterling silver flatware, and Lenox wine glasses. I almost forgot, a pretty white teapot by Porcellana De Paris, to keep that French vibe. There are so many ideas for China, get creative and you can find many sales at your HomeGoods where I found my blue and white. Sometimes you can find vintage teas set at the thrift stores quite cheap. Remember investing in a good white tablecloth to set the stage will just add elegance yo your tea party. Just saying!
3: Flowers and decorations
To capture the whimsical-nature of the garden the tea party centerpieces were I choose flowers called Cote Azure purple (purple bindweed found in the south of France). There are so many options such as roses, gardenia, or hydrangeas.
If you are thinking of having a garden tea party and space is an issue. Don’t stress anymore, you can set a table smack in your back yard porch. You don’t have to have lots of green space. Another great idea is to have it at a park.
6. Menu ideas
I kept my menu simple. I made an Apple Pie. I had a variety of different teas and surprised my friends with white wine. there are loads of ideas that are simple for tea. quiche lorraine is a popular one for teas, brownies and chocolate cookies all go great with tea and white wine.
