Mother's Day Tea

I hosted a tea party for Mother's Day, and invited some special women from my family. It was a lovely time, and a good distraction from the cold, wet, windy weather.  My Grandma's china made another appearance, and Ryan's Mom's setting had a special cup & saucer that belonged to her Mom.  I was gifted it last week, so it was perfect timing. I'm loving the idea of having a collection of teacups & saucers.  It was Delilah's first "real" tea party, and I could tell she enjoyed it. She had her own tea, and listened quietly to all the conversation.  To me, it was the perfect way to spend a Mother's Day afternoon.

The menu included various teas (Pink Passionfruit from DavidsTea, and Earl Grey Provence from Mariage Freres were the favourites this time), scones with clotted cream & raspberry curd, lemon dilly cucumber sandwiches, lemon & raspberry macarons, and an adapted version of the Courtesan au Chocolat that I made for my Spring Tea (the dark chocolate filling is really good!).

I love any excuse to make sweets and set the table for a tea party! Mother's Day is certainly no exception. I wouldn't mind at all if this became a tradition.

  1. So beautiful! I like how everything is so elegant and lady like. It's extra special how you used your Grandmother's china and are starting new traditions with your daughter.
