Tea and Crafting

Mother’s Day is the perfect time to sit back, relax, and make something beautiful. Afternoon tea is a cute way to celebrate, while adding in a craft makes for a day of fun. Gather the family or spend some one-on-one quality time with her while you indulge in finger sandwiches and try out new artistic endeavors.
