Children's Parties, For Mom

Party Reveal: Mother’s Day Tea and Brunch

Mother’s Day is right around the corner. It’s always a great day for getting lovingly made gifts from little hands! With a little adult help, they can even pull off a little party planning of their own. Nikki, from, recently staged a mother’s day tea party that her two small daughters were able to complete preparations for with a little supervision. From what I hear, they were beaming about the fabulous job they did for their mom! What a great way to show love for mom and build self-esteem at the same time.

To have children prepare the tea party by themselves, most everything will need to have very basic building blocks with a lot of leeway for the ingredients not to be perfect. Nikki gives a complete rundown on ingredients for these dishes on her site, but the ideas here are a great jumping off point to have your kids plan their own mother’s day brunch. Cucumber sandwiches, open faced, give the kids a chance to go crazy with cookie cutters, and they can easily spread cream cheese on bread to make them.

Clever arrangements of vegetables in food-grade pots make garden-fresh looking crudités. Buy pre-cut vegetables, and all the kids have to do is arrange them in the pots.

Trifles are just layers of cake, whipped cream and fruit. Most children are capable of putting those items in a dish!

Cupcakes covered with oreo crumbs make perfect little “dirt pots” and are made even more darling with seed packet picks in the top. Let the kids sprinkle the “dirt” on top.

Adult help would be required to put the lemonade into fancy bottles, but you could use a pitcher and add some strawberries as a special touch!

    Many craft stores will have them to make cupcakes in. I’ve also seen them places like World Market.
