Host a Gluten-Free Tea Party this Mother’s Day May 6, 2010

Host a Gluten Free Tea Part this Mothers Day There’s nothing better than a tea party. I’m obsessed with high-quality teas, and I’m always in the mood for a sweet, gluten-free treat. Hosting a tea party for that special mom is a great way to show her how much you love and care about her without breaking the bank (Mother’s Day just right around the corner!). Plan an “afternoon date” to enjoy gluten-free tea and dessert with mom and just have fun talking & being girls!

Here are some gluten-free tea-time tips for this Mother’s Day:

  • Make a special Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea Invitation: Take Digital Scrapbooks and More’s “Making Cards Training” to learn how you can personalize your very own party invitation! Including photos of you & mom, special notes inside, and details on the time and place for Mother’s Day tea will make your invitation much more than a regular card, but a Mother’s Day keepsake that she’ll treasure!

 

Note: Digital Scrapbooks and More also has training that can help you make place cards (decorate a beautiful table with tea accessories and include two personalized place cards with your names on it) and design your very own gluten-free tea-time menu!

  • Serve high-quality tea: If you haven’t tried Mighty Leaf tea, you have no clue how incredible tea can be! Mighty Leaf only uses the finest of herbs in biodegradable silken tea bags (that are hand-sewn closed). This is tea at it’s finest. Brew a pot of this gourmet tea and pamper a well-deserving mom. Flavors that go well for a special girls-only tea date? The oh-so delicious Vanilla Bean and Chocolate Mint Truffle. Mom will be in heaven! Digital Scrapbooks and More also mentions a special discount on Mighty Leaf tea! Read this blog for more info on saving money and giving this fabulous tea a taste!

 

  • Bake a delicious gluten-free dessert: You don’t have to spend a million bucks to make mom smile. Take your time in making the little details count, and you’ll surely impress mom and make her feel loved. Bake a delicious gluten-free cake that you can splurge on over Mother’s Day tea. Try this Gluten-Free Banana Pound Cake for a tasty treat!

 

 

Happy Tea Time & Happy (Early) Mother’s Day!

Top each tortilla with 1/2 cup chicken, 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves, and 2 tablespoons cheese, and top with a tortilla.

Place skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat until hot. Add 1 quesadilla, and cook 2 minutes on each side or until quesadilla is browned and crispy. Repeat with the remaining quesadillas. Plate and top each quesadilla with 2/3 cup Fruit Salsa and about 3 tablespoons Avocado Cream.

Happy Fiesta-ing! 🙂
