A great theme for a Mother-Daughter-Friends Tea.

Color:  any.

You may want to gather up some teapots for decorating first and see what the dominant colors are in those before you decide on a color.

Usually sweet and simple will make a tea luxurious.

Gather up teapots and teacups.



Arrangements in teacups or teapots

Focal Point:  Doll Tea Party - Use a child's table set up for tea with dolls seated as guests in the chairs.

Background music - Have some beautiful classical type music playing in the background.

If this is for a Mother-Daughter Banquet, have a group of the smaller ones sing the "I'm a Little Teapot" song together. The moms will love it!

Just for Fun

Make some tea related invitations.  Use teapot or teacup shapes. Embellish with scrapbooking paper.

Share Some Tea Uses. (Check online for resources.)

Tea Funny:

Q. Why should you be careful about drinking tea at night?

A. Because it might mug you!

Kids Participation:

If you are having a tea for your Mother's Day banquet and will have some younger kids, you may want to put a few crayons at the tables with a coloring sheet to color. 

It will give them something to do, especially if there is a lot of conversation that will not include them.

Try to find some tea themed color pages for them to color. 

Food and Serving

Light refreshments

Serve tea

Tea sandwiches

Petite Fours

Have a tea tasting table and let the ladies try some unusual or different blends.
