Spring Tea Party
Are you thinking about what you might do for Mother’s Day? Last year I styled this lovely spring tea party and felt it was worth sharing again today.
This tea set that came from Home Goods! Each teacup and each saucer are a slightly different pattern. IF you want to see a more mix and match tea party, you can look at my Valentine’s Tea Party.
The rain and wind chased me indoors, so I took over our bar cart and turned it into my tea cart!
Wanting to infuse the feeling of Springtime and outdoors, I used this mossy basket. This is a leftover Easter basket from Michael’s that was 70% off! I cut off the carrot trim and went about filling my basket. I tucked a potted hydrangea, an ivy and a hyacinth in the basket. Putting a few yellow tulips in water tubes meant I could stick them, into the potted ivy plant.
Look how pretty the different patterns are on the cups and saucers. If you look closely, you can see a rose-colored tassel on the one teacup.
When I spotted these pretty tassel look teaspoons, I knew I had to add them to my tea party!
I didn’t bake, but picked up some sweet little cookies and tarts to share with hot cups of tea. In the past, I have made little tea sandwiches. One of the napkins I used was used as a tablecloth on top of my tea cart, the rest of them were fanned out beneath dessert plates for guests to pick up as they help themselves to some sweets.
This teapot comes with a little base that holds a tea light to keep the water hot! Do you want to go a little crazy with an A Mad Tea Party?
I hope these pretty dishes and delightful flowers bring you some joy today!
