Pink tables, chocolate strawberries, and plenty of special memories


I went to a mother/daughter tea this weekend at our church and had such a great time!

The tables were beautiful (they were all individually decorated by volunteers)…

I loved all the pink on this table!

The food was delicious (it was served by dads, husbands, and sons, which was so sweet!)…

And spending time celebrating Mother’s Day with my daughter, my mom, my mother-in-law, and my sister-in-law was truly, truly memorable!

Me and my mom

Two beautiful women – my mom and my mother-in-law.

Even though I’m a coffee person, this mother/daughter tea was the best! :)

I hope you all had a great weekend. Did you do anything fun for Mother’s Day?

    Buckaroomama – I know! There was one boy there probably about ten years old serving; it was precious.

    Our church hosted an identical tea a couple of years ago and each table was decorated by a different volunteer as well. My pics would mirror yours. I attended with my mom and both my sisters, as well as my married niece. Along with the sweet treats, we enjoyed finger sandwiches and scones with jam and cream. It was a special day. Happy belated Mother's Day. Blessings,Joy

    Those table settings are simply beautiful. I love the pink too. What can be more perfect than pink at a Mother/Daughter Tea. I love the idea too. I live in a different state from my mom so I can just imaging how cool it was to spend Mother's Day like that.Feyella
