With Mother’s Day right around the corner it is time to plan the big day. If you are looking for something fun to do, a Mother’s Day tea party may be just your cup of tea. What better way to celebrate the mother-daughter bond than dressing up in poodle skirts, wearing fancy, decorated hats, and playing silly games with each other.
A proper tea party should be a dress-up party. Poodle skirts are a fun costume idea for a tea party. Poodle skirts are available in both adult and child sizes, so both mom and daughters will be able to wear matching costumes.
A tea party would not be a tea party with out a tea set. There are plenty of places to find a tea set that fits your needs. They come anywhere from really elegant sets to inexpensive, children tea sets.
Do a fun craft together. One great idea is to make a high-tea party hat. Buy inexpensive sun hats and glue fake flowers and jewels on them.
You can even make tissue paper flowers to go with the hat. There are plenty of easy tutorials online, such as this one found on the kaboose craft site. Tissue flowers can work as beautiful decorations as well.
You can try introducing tea for the tea party, but pink lemonade may be a better option for kids. Serve yummy sandwiches, glazed scones, and other favorite appetizers. For dessert try serving these cute tea cakes.
Have fun with manners. Make it fun for everyone by explaining the “table rules” before the party begins. Always say please and thank you when asking for items on the table. Never leave the table with out being excused first. No slurping, and use your napkins.
If you are looking for a fun party game we have just the one for you – Mrs. Mumbles! This classic game is a lot of fun for children and parents. The point of the Mrs. Mumbles game is to go the entire time with out showing your teeth. The first person begins by saying “Excuse me, is Mrs. Mumbles home?” with their teeth tightly over their teeth. The person they asked, also not showing their teeth, must reply “I don’t know. Let me ask my neighbor” and then turn and ask their neighbor if Mrs. Mumbles is home. If anyone shows their teeth they are out of the game, and the game continues until the last person is left.
