A Party “Mom”ent for Your Mom

Mother's Day flowers

This upcoming Mother’s Day, instead of taking her to a restaurant or sending flowers, give the leading lady in your life a real tribute – a party in her honor!

It’s easy and affordable to honor these selfless women. Gather the moms, daughters and sisters in your circle to put on a party you all deserve.

Here are a few of our favorite ideas:

Mother’s Day Tea Time

Take a note from the Queen Mother and host a tea that’s a little less formal and a lot more fun. Keep all the food from sandwiches to cookies bite-sized and finger-friendly. Serve hot and iced teas with your mom’s signature cocktail. Now’s the perfect opportunity to pull out the family china or even borrow a few place settings from friends – the less they match, the better it looks! Print out some family photos in black and white and place the frames around the teapots. Hats can be required; raising your pinkie as you sip the tea is optional.


Skip the ribs and chicken wings but think grilled romaine, fruit skewers and kabobs on the grill. Offer up cold drinks like jugs of water with slices of lemon and lime plus your mom’s favorite beer. Keep it clean and simple with disposable plates and utensils on top of throw-away gingham tablecloths. Add some citronella candles, personalize a placemat for the moms and get those huge, letter helium balloons to spell out M-O-M.
