Mother's Day Tea Party Invitations

My kiddos have already begun their preparations for our big Mother's Day Tea Party. Invitations were sent home last week and now the Moms are getting excited too!

Invitations for kindergarten mothers day tea party

I found this adorable stationary at Michaels. It was only about $5.00 for a pack of 50 sheets of paper. It couldn't be more perfect to fit the theme of the party. I tried to find a link on their website so you could easily purchase it yourself, but it wasn't listed. I just bought the paper a week ago, so I'm sure you can find it in your nearest Michaels store.

We also stapled a pretty labeled envelope to the invitation. Parents need to fill out their child's name on the front and use the envelope to send the tea party fee to school (only $3.00 to defray some of the expenses). Of course the envelopes were pretty and pink since this is for such a special event.

In the past, I would frequently find myself accepting $5 bills at dismissal from parents that forgot to send cash to school for an event. Of course it wasn't in an envelope and 20 minutes later I would discover the cash in my pocket and struggle to recall who gave it to me. This year I decided to send pre-labelled envelopes home for EVERYTHING that has a fee (bagel day, field trips, etc.) It has been invaluable!

Some general guidelines and details about our party:
  • Children arrive at school dressed in "Sunday Best"
  • Moms dress in "Mother's Day Best"and arrive a few hours later
  • Moms are encouraged to bring a favorite tea cup to the party (we also have some extra mugs on hand)
  •  Tea party begins at 10am  and is finished by 11am
  • Children have the rest of the afternoon off to spend time with Mom
  • Childcare arrangements are required for younger siblings

We will be working to create more special projects for the Moms in the coming weeks. I will keep you posted on our progress!
