This Valentine’s Tea Party for little girls is a fun mother and daughter annual tradition that we cherish! It’s so easy to set up and creates special memories for all the little sweethearts who attend! All the details are so pretty from the heart folded napkins to the pink drinks and conversation heart vases!
A few years back, my friend started hosting a Valentine’s Tea party for mothers and daughters in our group of friends. Her mom had done the same while she was growing up, so she wanted to continue it. Last year I was so thrilled that she asked me to help host! It was so nice to share in the work of preparations, set up and decorating!
I know I’m posting this early, but I wanted to give you plenty of time to put this party together if you’d like! Plus, after the holidays, I immediately start thinking about all things Valentine’s Day! It’s such a perfect time to celebrate those we love!
We asked everyone who was invited to bring a specific food item to share (a salad, snack, a fancy dessert, sandwiches, veggie platter, etc.). My friend made the most beautiful layered jello jigglers! We poured pink lemonade from pitchers into their adorable little tea cups that we had also asked everyone to bring, if they had a set. We hung banners throughout and used decor that we already had.
We had a nice array of food options with some healthy and some not-so healthy. 🙂 But all were delicious!
We lined mini tables with wrapping paper (from Hobby Lobby) and folded pink paper napkins to look like hearts. It’s so simple to do using this tutorial. For table centerpieces, we filled milk bottles with conversation hearts and placed layered felt hearts that we had glued onto paper straws inside. We also filled small glass serving bowls with red, pink and white chocolate M&M’s.
We made sure to take a photo of all the mother/daughter duos and trios who attended as a memento of the sweet occasion!
I thought the pink, white and gold details were so pretty!
We borrowed a few mini tables and chairs from friends who were coming so we’d have enough seating for all the girls.
I love having traditions like this with my girls! It makes each holiday so much fun!
We set up a normal-sized table in the center of the room for all the moms.
The girls were invited to dress in their fanciest attire! They enjoyed petit fours and “tea” (pink lemonade). This is such a fun event that we look forward to each year!
