spring mother's day party ideas

Spring has sprung! Nikki Wills of Tikkido dreamed up this Darling Mother’s Day Spring Garden Party, and with help from the kids, it bloomed into a beautiful day! ;) What a great way to celebrate mom this year- let the kids help and spend the day with fun family activities!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Rustic potting bench “buffet” with potted veggie snacks
– Leaf placemats + pink flower party straw embellishments
– Mini potted seed party favors
– Flower shaped cucumbers on cream cheese toasts and caprese salad
– Pre-potted flowers and herbs {which they planted together after brunch!}

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Nicole Wills

The idea behind this Mother’s Day celebration was to create something that the kids could do FOR the mom. With that in mind, all of the delicious treats at our garden party were made by the kids! Peanut butter and jelly “snail” roll-ups, open faced herbed cream cheese sandwiches with flower-shaped cucumbers, miniature trifles, caprese salad, simple garden cupcakes, veggies and dip. Beverages were also made by my girls: sun tea and pink lemonade.

Decorations were kept very simple.  An old potting bench made the perfect table for our garden party ($10 craigslist score).  No fancy flour arrangements necessary–we just bought flowers and herbs that we planted together in our garden after we ate.  A big balloon with a garland for the string added the perfect whimsical touch.

I don’t want a mediocre, overcrowded brunch for mother’s day, lovely though the intentions may be. A sunny afternoon, a rolling green lawn, tasty treats, a big balloon, and my family–now that’s what I call a great celebration.

I developed all of the recipes and crafts, but my girls pretty much did the work for me!
