It is that time of year, the time that we honor our Mothers, Grandmother’s, God Mother’s and Mother figures. It is MOTHER’S DAY! It is my annual tradition to host a Tea Party. Last Year’s Tea was a blast, while it was my first it turned out rather nicely. This year I had, even more, ideas on how to improve upon my tea party, like with some typical Italian tablecloth or other decorations. That’s the great thing about doing yearly events, you can improve it every time! There were a few things I wanted to incorporate this year but I had a lot going (I was taking swimming lesson) on and I didn’t get to all the tiny details. All of my guests enjoyed the setup and had a really good time. I can’t wait to make it even better next year.
My plan was to buy these (pre-made) but the folks at Costco burnt up the croissants so I made my own. The top tier was Oscar Mayer, Deli Fresh Oven Roasted Turkey breast & Havarti cheese the second tier was Oscar Mayer, Deli Fresh, Rotisserie Season Chicken breast & Provolone Cheese The third tier was mixed of the two. Behind the 3 level tier is a Butterfly tray I got from Target that holds some homemade Pasta Salad
This was the beverage area; I had water, Raspberry Lemonade & cut up a few lemon slices and put in there. On the yellow placemat is a variety of tea bags, some regular Lipton and some fancy ones that I got from Home Goods. I think they are my new favorite. In the turquoise teapot is milk in the top and sugar in the bottom. The Two white teapots on the far right held hot water. The Sunflower Tea Pot my nieces got me for my birthday. I ordered the butterfly teapot from Amazon. The placemats all came from Dollar Tree.
