Mother’s Day is coming up soon and what better way to spend the day than with your daughter? Girls of all ages love to dress up in their best. Why not throw a tea party for your friends and their daughters? This kind of party may seem to be an intricate and difficult one but with some good planning and a few tips and ideas, all your guests will be sure to have a wonderful time.
First, you should decide on a tea party theme to make planning easier. Perhaps you want a “princess” party with sequins, tiaras and bows. You can decorate the party room with glitter and costume jewels. Guests can dress up in tiaras, princess skirts, fancy gowns, all completed with feather boas. For a princess tea party, you can serve finger sandwiches and tiny cookies.
A teddy bear themed tea party can make all your guests feel comfortable. After all, who doesn’t love teddy bears? You can use a teddy bear theme for decorations, including paper plates and cups adorned with teddies. Purchase each guest a small bear. Also purchase ribbons, bead, pearls, flowers and so on and let each girl dress up their bears. Serve teddy bear shaped cookies along with finger sandwiches.
Other themes you can consider are Barbie tea parties where guests bring their favorite Barbies and the dolls join the group for tea. You can also choose a fairy-themed party complete with wings, wands and glitter.
For all these tea party themes, encourage the moms and the girls to dress up according to the themes. When you send out invitations, let them know about sites such as costumeexpress.com to help them with kids costumes.
With just a bit of planning, you and your guests will be sure to have fun with your mother-daughter tea party.
