Mother’s Day High Tea

 

Sometimes you want to take something you enjoy and make it a little special. A cup of tea and some baked treats are simple pleasures that many of us enjoy, but have you had the pleasure of trying a high tea? It’s like taking the tea parties from your childhood and elevating them to a grown- up version- princess dresses and crowns optional. 😉 The finger sandwiches, British- inspired sweet treats, and a perfectly brewed cup of tea are a part of the experience and it’s something that is enjoyable year- round. Whether you enjoy a day out with some girlfriends or include the kids, I thought this was a sweet idea for Mother’s Day. There are plenty of places to go, but you can also enjoy the high tea experience at home with services like those offered by SocieTea Events, where you can select a package to enjoy in your own home or garden. 

Hosting a high tea at home can be as simple or as elaborate as you want to make it- start with a selection of teas and treats and go from the there!- and it’s an opportunity to dress up and have some fun (have you seen all the cute Cake inspired pieces from The Sweet Life Apparel?). The lovely ladies from Sequel Events helped me style and shoot this high tea and we definitely indulged in our girly sides- add in a yummy cake from Hello Cake Co, a few simple DIYs, and some pretty touches like the ones included here from SocieTea Events (they also provide some decor items) and Raggy Girl Vintage, and you’ve got yourself a beautiful afternoon. And if you’ve got something else in mind for Mother’s Day (have you checked out this year’s gift guide?), how cute would it be to host a high tea for a bridal or baby shower? It’s amazing what some pretty vintage- inspired touches and fresh flowers can do. See below for the final results!
