This post is a week late but better late than never, right? And I really think this postwas worth waiting for. I love all the bright, colorful photos…the bright, femininity of it all.
In my opinion, there isn’t a whole lot better than sitting around the table with family, sipping tea (or mimosas) and noshing on tea party fare. My mom is especially a big fan of tea sandwiches so I thought it was a perfect way to celebrate Mother’s Day.
We kept things relatively simple with store-bought desserts, minimal decor and potluck style food. Everything turned out delicious and most importantly, we all had a great time.
Floral straws from Target
Egg salad tea sandwiches made by my sister-in-law, Nikki The entire spread, including flowers from Trader Joe’s, which doubled as gifts (from my sister to give to my mom and a few of the ladies celebrating birthdays). All the tea was from Trader Joe’s. Gorgeous petit fours from Byerly’s
I made mini quiche with turkey sausage, cheddar and a slice of a grape tomato on top. Very easy. I followed this recipe but swapped the bacon for turkey sausage and the gruyere for cheddar. Huge cupcakes from Byerly’s. My sister-in-law (to be very soon!), Katie, made smoked salmon and cucumber tea sandwiches. Mini lemon cookies from Target.
I love those plates, I got them from Good Will for .99 each, such a steal.
These tea cups were also from Good Will, .99 It’s hard to get a clear picture of my sweetie because she’s always on the move. I adore her pretty floral dress (from Old Navy) I love mimosas so much All the ladies including my mom, Juliet (hiding behind the chair), my aunt Chris, my sister Katie, my sister-in-law (to be) Katie, my niece Chloe and my other sister-in-law, Nikki.
Celebrating moms and the ladies in my life over tea was fabulous. And ending it with a giant cupcake wasn’t bad, either.
