Mother's Day Tea Party

 






Another year has passed and it is time again to plan a tea party for that special person your mom.
What can you do to make this day extra special for her?


  Tea, Mom and her special day

breakfast tea party

Surprise you mother with breakfast in bed, conspire with dad to help you to prepare her favorite leaf tea; make her special recipe of her favorite scones or try something new. Have dad help you try your hand at French toast with cinnamon and maple syrup. Serve some fresh fruit like sweet sliced oranges or mixed melons. Use cloth napkins and your mom’s best tea service, and don’t forget to adorn her breakfast tray with flowers. A single rose, a tulip or carnation will surely bring a smile to her face. Have dad help you carry the breakfast try into mom’s room.


  If you are a mom too

If some years have passed and you are a mother too, your children will want to make it a special day for you as well. Switch from a breakfast tea party to a tea brunch at your own home. If your children are too young to make a breakfast/lunch meal themselves dad and granddad should be able to help. (You could even prebake a breakfast casserole ahead of time that dad will help the children finish on the special day.) Suggest to dad and granddad that they prepare two or three loose tea flavors, one of which should be a hearty English Breakfast. Prepare a plan that dad can easily follow with step by step instructions. Although for many men today this will not be necessary. I find they love to cook and even create new dishes.

 

For the fathers who will need help suggest a menu and point him to your local deli that will prepare most of it for him. Along with your prebaked breakfast casserole he could order small croissants and a meat and cheese platter with all the trimmings. A tray of Danish pastries, tea breads and sweet rolls will add to the brunch mix. Have the deli do a fruit platter as well or order a bouquet of fruit from a place like Incredible Edibles.

None otea party fruit displayf the mothers should do anything to help prepare this feast or clean up afterwards. The men and the children are in charge and their mission should be to make all the moms relax and enjoy. If the children are too young to help with the food have them fold napkins or set the table. They could even pamper the moms by rubbing lotion onto their hands that should not be lifting a finger on this day.


If the clean up chore is going over the top use you china tea service, including tea cups but switch to paper products for everything else. Trust me mom, grandmother and any other mothers invited will not care in the least. They will get the love that is being sent their way. They will feel appreciated for all the mom things they do. They will enjoy their special day. Small children will burst with pride and older and adult children will experience satisfaction to be able to express themselves to someone who is so very important to them.
