Tidbits & Tea Mother’s Day Party

Looking for a simple way to show mom you appreciate her? How about a Simple Tea Party. I’m loving the influx of all the pretty tea and china sets in stores these days. Perhaps everyone is getting ready for the Royal Wedding on May 19th. Shameless plug for the upcoming “Royal Tea Party”…get more info HERE.

I love having a simple sweet and savory spread. From cheesecake stuffed strawberries to powdered beignets – there is something for every palate on the table. Check out these tasty prosciutto palmiers and butter mints by the Hurried Hostess.

Here are a few tips on a simple tablescape:

1. I’m sure your grandmother or mom has some fine dainty china and now is the time to whip it out. If you are unable to locate any I suggest visiting your local resale shop or keep an eye out for estate sales to see if you can come up on some pieces.

2. Mix and match the china – I love the different shapes and platter sizes and even incorporating plates as serve ware. So simple and brings the whole table for an all inclusive look.

3. Perhaps you aren’t a tea person, I suggest the alternative – a cocktail! I love a pretty drink and this Tea Cocktail DOES NOT disappoint. Check out the quick recipe below.
