Today I am bringing you the first in a monthly series of Party Planning Vision Boards. These are tools to help you visualize a theme, or a pathway to your perfect party or event. I love creating parties with wonderful details to make guests feel special, and I typically start with something quite similar to this.
This month I am focusing on a Mother’s Day theme. This Mother’s Day tea party is everything girly, and perfect for Mommy to have with her children. Focus all of the party decor on making the table settings the focal point of the party, with additional buffet space complementing the atmosphere. Use cute and decorative platters as centerpieces, and display delicious cupcakes. Hang pink and purple paper lanterns above the table to give the space an enchanting look. Dress guests up in pearl beaded necklaces and allow them to create charm bracelets as favors. Create place setting favors by tying paper or cloth napkins with cute tea party theme lollipops and yarn, or baker’s twine. Provide an assortment of light teas, with cream, sugar, honey, and lemon (keeping in mind any dietary restrictions of guests) and let the kiddos have their spill free “tea cups” with a straw. Everyone will love sitting at such a beautifully decorated tea table, and enjoying the time to chat and relax.
Whatever you do, remember the women you love on Mother’s Day.
