Why Mother’s Day is a sham

Yay, Mother’s Day is right around the corner – oh wait, did I say yay? I meant, oh great, (queue eye roll).

I’m probably among the 3% of moms who actually have a perfect Mother’s Day, but despite that, and after consulting with tons of moms on social media and in real life, I’m here to say that it’s bogus.

Yup, that’s right. Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, heck, even Valentine’s Day, you’re all just a big fat farce.

Ah, I’m feeling much better getting that off my chest.

Stick with me to learn why, and comment with your feelings about these holidays.

How to throw a tea party birthday

This post contains affiliate links to throw the perfect birthday tea party. That means I receive a tiny portion of any sales made at no cost to you!

My daughters birthdays are only 4 days apart, and this year started their combined birthday party tradition! Per Ginny’s request, we had a pink tea party theme, and Tea for Two was perfectly fitting for a double birthday extravaganza.

We hosted the party at home with our family and friends in the afternoon, serving appetizers, beverages, and sweets. I love how all of the components came together, especially when I found a new local consignment shop that sold complete China sets at a seriously RIDICULOUS price. What a score! I’m in love.

Check out how we put together the party, food, drinks, and extra details that made my girls’ 3rd and 1st birthday celebration so special.
