If you are planning a Mother’s Day Tea Party and children will be involved, it is important to not only get the children involved, but to give them ways to serve their mothers.
Make the Tea Party Invitations
Ask the children to make the invitations. They can place tea bags in cute teapot-shaped invitations or just put them in charge of delivering the invitations with a kiss.

Create tea party favors
Children can make sweet party favors for their mothers like a bonnet made from paper plates or a homemade Mother’s Day card.
Have child-friendly activities
Games are not typical for tea parties but you could easily keep the children entertained with these simple tea-themed ideas:
Plan a simple menu
Maybe my children are the only ones but they do not like – what I call – mystery food. Too many ingredients in the recipe means they will immediately turn up their noses. So, to make your Mother’s Day tea party a success, keep the menu plain and simple.
Serve finger sandwiches, crackers with cheese, sliced cucumbers, chocolate-dipped strawberries, and cupcakes.
Read a story
Encourage mothers to snuggle their children during a sweet story time. Any of these books would be precious for a Mother’s Day tea party.
Have a photo booth
Allow mothers and children to get dress in fancy hats, boas, scarves, and jewelry for a sweet picture together. Frame each picture in a frame from the dollar store to send home as an extra party favor.
Laugh and have fun
Drinks may spill. Children might cry. Just be prepared to laugh and have fun despite any minor problems. Everyone will have a lovely time.
