Mother’s Day Tea in the Backyard

A Mother’s Day Tea Party in the backyard is exactly what I am planning for this year!  Tons of small, sugary delicious bites to eat, and plenty of tea (and non-caffeinated options) to go around.  Break out the tea cups and floral dresses-it’s time for a fun backyard celebration.

I love the thought of everyone bringing a tea set or two that they’ve loved or thrifted to exchange and bring home a new one to cherish.  I will set up a small table to display the ornate collection near the beverage bar.  You can not have a Tea Party without PLENTY of tasty beverages.  Our weather heats up fast so I will double brew the tea and then let it cool to room temperature, before placing it in a glass to store in the fridge.  Double-brewing is KEY for making a fabulous iced-tea out here in the desert.  Of course I know that some of us prefer our caffeine to be in a coffee creation so I will be prepping a couple quarts of The Best Cold Brew Iced Coffee. Hands-down-the best.

Tea & Crumpets

Honestly, I can not wait to make some Sweet Pink Treats– they are so photogenic and more importantly-delicious. Of course a plain tower of Rice Crispies cut into squares, some finger sandwiches, and of course cookies will need to be served.

The backyard is going to be on display as I will be pulling out the tables and all of our chairs for our Mother’s Day Tea Party.  Thankful that a little prep with Scotts® Turf Builder® Weed & Feed our backyard is turning into a lush oasis.

I grabbed the Weed & Feed at my local Walmart while picking up some school supplies. This product will cover up to 5,000 square ft. Helps you rid your lawn of the weeds you see and thicken your grass to crowd out the ones you don’t!

I already own a Scotts spreader and gloves(they are a MUST) and was able to quickly get to work prepping the lawn.  Definitely loved how simple the directions were to follow-please read the directions! I cut a hole in the corner and poured the seed in(all while properly gloved-safety first) and went about my way.
