Our DIY Mother’s Day Tea

My husband’s family has started a tradition the last few years of having a Mother’s Day Tea for all of the ladies in our family. This was the 3rd year that we’ve had it and I was so excited to be able to fly to Denver to be a part of it. My Mother-in-law hosted the tea at her house and I was able to help her out with lots of DIY projects to make the tea extra special.

The theme of the tea party was “pansies”, so we were all about flowers, flowers and more flowers. We had some terra cota pots that we wanted to use – so we spray painted the bottom of them with chalkboard paint and wrote each ladies’ name on the pot. They were able to take home their own pot with a pansy in it.

Mason Jar Salad, cloth napkin, Scone in a Pot & Name Card

Each lady also had a basket at their place setting (wire baskets from Dollar Tree). The baskets were filled with a cloth napkin, a mason jar salad (inspired by Pinterest) and a flowerpot scone. I didn’t get a great picture of the scone, but you can see it in the basket. The scones were absolutely delicious and baked really well in the pot.

Flowerpot Scones – How to

1. Soak the pots in water for 30+ minutes

2. Find your favorite scone recipe. (We used this incredible cream scone recipe from Savory Sweet Life)

3. Spray the pot with non-stick spray.

4. Drop the dough into the pot. They don’t raise very much so don’t be afraid to fill them pretty close to the top.

5. Bake as directed by the recipe, but expect that it will take 10-15 minutes longer. Watch to see when the top is slightly golden.

6. Serve with Devonshire Cream and preserve.

 

Oh, and we drank tea. You have to drink tea at a tea party, but it’s really all about the food. And we ate. a lot. of. food.
