Looking for a super easy way to make Mother’s Day special without spending the entire afternoon in the kitchen? How about scheduling in a tea with mom brunch before the big meal? I’ll be honest with you, I’m not a great chef. I take my mom out for Mother’s Day!
Still, I like to spend time with my mom (and my own son) away from the crowded restaurants as well! A tea brunch is the perfect way to do that. Who says tea time is only for afternoons? With Dollar General, it’s easy to make it extra special without busting the budget!
How to make Mother’s Day Tea Brunch Special
Tea time- whether it’s at brunch or later in the afternoon- needs four elements to make it really stand out: tea (obviously), a pretty setting, little snacks and great conversation. Dollar General can help with the first three. The last one is up to you and mom! Check out how I turned these supplies into a fun tea brunch setting for mom!
Setting the Scene:
Setting the scene for a special Mother’s Day tea brunch really depends on your personal style. Browse the aisles at Dollar General and see what pops out at you. A pretty mug, a nice place mat, some silk flowers- use your imagination! Go with the settings that really represent you and your mother’s personality. No one said tea time had to be all about fine china!
Dollar General has your favorite tea brands plus their own. I drink a lot of tea and I love their brand. To me, it tastes exactly the same as the bigger name brands but it’s easier on my budget.
Snacks are a must for a successful tea brunch. My Dollar General has a lot of snacks to choose from. I wanted something that said “tea time” without being too pricey. I love those little butter cookies that come in the big tin. I found a smaller tin of the same cookies on the Dollar General shelves.
Make store-bought cookies stand out by putting them in a pretty tin. I also used cupcake liners for individual servings. Finish off the setting with a super cute flower arrangement from Dollar General and you’re done!
All that’s left is to enjoy great conversation with your mom on her special day. The awesome thing about this tea brunch idea? Mom can take home the new mug and flower arrangement. These make cute gifts from the grandkids.
Dollar General is the perfect place to find everything you need to make every holiday a success. Remember my number one tip: go in with an open mind and an imagination. You never know where inspiration will strike!
