Mothers’ Day is all about celebrating mums, but that doesn’t mean you necessarily have to spend all day with your kids!
Many Mums choose to host or attend Mothers’ Day Morning Teas with friends and family instead of a traditional big roast dinner with all the trimmings.
If you are hosting a Mothers’ Day Morning Tea, or you’re planning on attending one and need to bring a plate, here are a few ideas to get you started.
1. Raspberry Almond Scones
Is a morning tea really complete without scones? Certainly not without these Raspberry Almond Scones, which are as delicious as they are pretty.
2. Open Face Cucumber Tea Sandwiches
We love sweet things when it comes to morning tea, but sometimes, you need something a little savoury like these Open Face Cucumber Tea Sandwiches.
3. Berry Champagne Punch
Get your Mothers’ Day celebratory vibe happening with a glass or two of these delightful Berry Champagne punch — fizzy and flavourful!
4. Lemon Pound Cake With Vanilla Glaze
We love a good Lemon Pound Cake, particularly when it’s paired with a stunning and delicious Vanilla Glaze. What a duo!
