May is always such a whirlwind month in the teaching field. At least for our school, we were busy with finishing assessments, parent-teacher conferences, teacher appreciation week, planning for our upcoming Summer Camp, and ironing out details for Pre-Kindergarten Graduation that we almost forgot Mother’s Day! This was such a cute little event that had a wonderful turn out!
For our elegant tea-themed party, we set the mood with some tissue poofs in the foyer. They were eye-catching and made it feel like a special event was about to happen!
Moms (and students) were encouraged to dress up in their “tea attire” and many moms wore fancy derby hats or fascinators! Here is a picture of my little one and me before the guests started to arrive. We went shopping the night before for our outfits and special tea hats and she was so excited for the party!
The tables were set with lavender tablecloths (plastic of course!), paper doilies, and paper plates in a flower and gold motif. Each table featured a centerpiece of flower-shaped sugar cookies and pink frosting to decorate!
I just love how cute and elegant the table settings turned out!
In lieu of hot tea being served (definitely not a good option around preschoolers!), we served iced tea and lemonade to our moms in cute little pink and gold cups.
This classroom added purple tulip centerpieces which really pulled the whole look together!
For an added activity, paper tea cups with stickers were provided for students and moms to decorate together! The cups were marker friendly, which was great since the stickers seemed to run out quickly. It also gave moms a reason to stay a little longer and spend time with their little ones in the classroom.
Before leaving for the night, students presented their moms with the hand-made gifts they had been working on in class all week. The teachers were so creative with their gift ideas!
Of course every preschool event has to have a photo booth! This booth was exactly in line with our colors and theme, and was very simple to execute! The background is the same plastic lining used as tablecloths in the classrooms along with a set of paper fans hung from the ceiling in varying heights.
It was a very successful event, and many moms complimented teachers on all of their hard work! They were amazing hosts and I’m glad we were able to pay tribute to our moms!
Wishing you well,
