Mother’s Day is fantastic because it’s a chance to give back to the amazing women who raised us. And what could be more perfect than throwing a Mother’s Day Tea Party in their honor? And I’m absolutely obsessed with flowers, pastries, and candles when it comes to decorating a table. And I am so thrilled to dish out all the deets on how to throw the ultimate tea party!
Tea parties combine the deliciousness of pastries, the beauty of pretty flowers, and a charming setting to create a wonderful atmosphere for honoring our moms.
Yankee Candle Partner
Yankee Candle sponsors this blog post. And I am happy to collaborate with Yankee Candle this spring. This means I am receiving compensation for my efforts in creating this post. All our opinions are authentically my own, and all convenient shopping links add no additional cost to you.
Tea is life, and I have it every day. So, when I had the fun idea to combine my love of tea with Mother’s Day, it was a brilliant idea!
I was even more thrilled when Yankee Candle proposed a collaboration to use their candles. The candles they designed in partnership with Vera Bradley look exceptionally elegant, and the fragrance is fabulous.
Elements for a
Mother’s Day Tea Party!
Pastries and Sandwiches
Table decorations are also a key element in creating a charming atmosphere for a tea party. You could opt for a classic, elegant look with a white or pastel-colored tablecloth and simple, understated floral arrangements. Or, you could go for a more whimsical look by incorporating fun patterns and bold colors into your table settings.
And by the way, I love these handmade laminated placemats I created for a DIY post.
Finally, candles are an excellent addition to any tea party. They add a cozy, intimate feel to the space and can help create a soothing ambiance. Yankee Candles help set the mood and create a relaxing atmosphere.
I went to the San Francisco Flower Market to buy my flowers, but you can pick some up from the grocery store or garden. I did add a few from an obliging field, as Jane Austen once said. Yes, I love to hike the hills of the Bay Area! And I enjoy having a beautiful floral arrangement as a centerpiece. It adds such a lovely touch to the table.
