Mother’s Day Party Ideas

Thinking about a Mother’s Day party?  Well, why not? Moms are awesome and deserve ALL. THE. LOVE.  With spring in the air, it’s all about the floral this year. From soft tulips to bright lemon yellows…flowers are definitely all the rage.  

Don’t worry though…if flowers aren’t your thing, we have plenty of other non-flowery ideas to share too.

Oh, and coffee…I did mention they were ideas for moms, right?


Tea Parties with a Mother’s day theme

Mother’s Day Tea Party from Sugar and Charm

This beautiful tea party idea is perfection.  Lots of white mixd with soft colors. We are in love!  My favorite detail is the little Poloroid photo on the napkin rings.  This is an adorable way to add some personalized touches that would brighten any mom’s day!


Coffee with Mom Party from Charming Touch Parties

See, I told you I promised coffee!  What better theme for Mother’s Day then celebrating that wonderful substance that gets us out of bed each and every morning and helps us face the day?  Coffee party, anyone? Yes. Please.


Mother’s Day Soiree from Capes and Crowns

This fun party was designed around the concept that moms are selfless and amazing…we agree.  I collaborated on this fun party and it turned out perfect! I designed these fun mother’s day printables and they are available to you for free…Download them here!


Tea Party for Moms from Brit & Co.

This fun, bright colored Mother’s Day spread is flirty and playful.  It’s simplicity is what makes it so genius. I love the simple Sharpie style backdrop and bright flowers.  You know you want to hang out with these peeps and have some momma-themed fun!


Ideas for a Mother’s Day Brunch

Brunch is definitely the most popular Mother’s Day party meal.  Brunch is perfect because it allows moms to do one of two common Mother’s Day activities.

  1. Sleep in. *gasp, I’m not sure I even remember what that is*  
  2. Attend church.  Because you need to receive your yearly carnation (that’s for all ya’ll who grew up in the south like me!)

Planning a brunch party for Mother’s Day is a lot like planning any other party, except its now acceptable to serve quiche.  This is like the icing on the Mother’s Day cake (ok, not REALLY…the icing on the cake IS the icing on the cake…there better be CAKE!)

Tea Toast to Mother’s Day from A La Mo

This fun Toast to Mother’s Day is a great inspiration for brunch.  Whip up some mimosas and party like before you had diapers to change!  


Pretty Mother’s Day Brunch from Redbook

This brunch spread is beautiful and modern.  It has fun black and white polkadots and pretty pink flowers.  This would be ideal for a mother who loves classy and streamlined designs and parties.  It’s simply gorgeous.

This Mother’s Day table is similar to the Poloroid set-up, except it focuses on vintage photos.  This would be perfect for honoring moms of older generations. The vintage frames add such a nice touch to already spectacular decor.
