My Mom will be turning 50. She has never had a birthday party.. well, not as long as I have been alive and I want to do something special for her. I was thinking of a Tea Party.. but with coffee..lol. My Mom loves her coffee.
I would want to invite only the women from the family.. I planned an Anniversary Party for them and having invited the whole family, it became super stressful.. and super expensive. I will of course make a kids table because I feel bad saying "leave your kids at home" Husbands don't mind staying home and a frilly Tea Party invite will get them off the hook of going to another party
I know I want every place setting to have the antique-y cups and saucers. Maybe floral handkerchieves for the placemats. I will serve coffee and tea..... and that is as far as I have gotten.
I was thinking about having games and maybe a craft.. a tea inspired charm bracelet. Does this sound too childish? I know I would love it.... but I am a kid at heart.
Has anyone planned anything like this? Any tips for decor or recipes for small foods?
