Mother’s Day is a time to show our appreciation and to celebrate our mother or mother figures in our lives. While I don’t get a chance to see my mother that often since she lives across the country, I enjoy getting together with other mom’s that are part of my life here in Montreal. While my son is to young to realize what this day signifies, now that I am a mother myself, I find it more meaningful and important to be celebrating this day.
What to do on Mother’s Day?
This year I celebrated Mother’s Day with an afternoon tea at my cousin’s place. Being the amazing hostess she is, I knew that I would have to share this special day with all of you.
What was quite fun is that we were all wearing pink (it was not planned) and mostly feminine dresses. We were 7 mother and/or daughter.
As always, our seats were assigned and this time with individual pictures for each guest (with their child or mother). Whenever I get together with relatives or my immediate family, we always enjoy sharing some “oh so good” homemade meals. This tea party wasn’t any different. We sipped the tea from traditional english teacups while we chatted. The favorite tea of the day was a Ginger-Pear mix. While, the mother’s sat at one table, we also had a mini table for our little ones….so cute!
The menu consisted of an assortment of finger foods such as mini sandwiches, salad, scones with jam and devonshire cream spread. Followed with bite size desserts of macaroons, lemon madeleine, chocolate dipped shortbread cookies and velvet cupcakes.
Needless to say, I throughly enjoyed this Mother’s Day afternoon tea!
Color your food, color your style, color your life!
