Mother's Day Tea Party

My mom and I have a close, special relationship, and I'm so grateful to have her in my life. She is always smiling and laughing, and just so much fun to be around. Babygirl and I decided we needed a little girl time, so we invited 'Noonie' to join us for an early Mother's Day Tea. We put on our favorite dresses, and headed to an adorable neighborhood café for a 3-course tea, fit for a princess.

I thought about hosting a tea party at home, but sometimes it's nice to let others pamper you!

I don't know much about tea (except sweet tea...I'm a connoisseur of that!), and there were so many to choose from, but we thought Mother's Bouquet was pretty suitable for the occasion.

A first course of scones, sweet breads, fruit, fresh cream and jam...I'm drooling just remembering it!

Could my mom be any prettier?! Good gracious I hope I inherited her genes...because I sure didn't get her sweet spirit.

Babygirl chose a caffeine-free cinnamon tea, and loved having her own pot and fancy cup. I'm surprised her pinkie isn't up in this picture...she was reeeeally into the fanciness of it all!

Second course was assorted tea sandwiches and tomato soup. Which I, of course, ate with another sweet bread.

I don't know how we did it, but we managed to finish off the third course of cupcakes and fruit.

My pretty Boden dress was just perfect for the afternoon...I love the mix of colors, and light, airy swing of the skirt.

I think it's obvious where I got my love of wearing bright colors!

The three of us see each other a lot at events for the kids, but it's not often we take the time to sit and talk, and really enjoy one another. I hope I always have this sweet relationship with my daughter, and pray her kids love me the way mine do their Noonie.

Have you taken the time to enjoy the special people in your life? What plans do you have for celebrating Mother's Day? Have you ever totally gorged on a 3-course tea?!?

I was thrilled to partner with Martha Stewart Omnimedia and Boden for this post, in helping to bring their styles to America. All opinions, mushy talk, and bloated tummies are my own.

  7. Last year was the first time I hosted a tea party for all the mothers and daughters in the family. We vowed to do it every year, because it was so much fun. Mom's still in the hospital after her car wreck a couple of months ago and I just can't bring myself to host it without her.

  12. Oh how fun! I hope to one day do this with my little girl! You definitely inherited your mother's genes--I thought that even before I read the words on your post (I always scan the pics before!) I linked up to your diy otomi today! I thought it was perfect for a Cinco de Mayo post! The link is below you are interested. Thanks again for always sharing! I love that Boden dress--their catalogue is one of my favorites to read (for me and the little one!)
