I decided to host a little get together for some pregnant girls in our area and thought a “mama-to-be tea” party would be the perfect way to do it. I had all the girls come over on a Sunday afternoon to relax and chat about all things baby and all things pregnancy. Think we may make it a monthly tradition!
I stocked up on 4 different types of Tazo teas, both caffeine-free and regular, a Pregnancy Tea I found on Amazon and some lemon, stevia and sugar cubes. I had my favorite bottles of mini Pelligrinos on hand and finally found an excuse to use the pretty bud vases I got as a wedding shower gift.
I used formal china for the tea cups but kept everything else pretty casual. The Anthropologie pitcher is no longer available, but I use every time I entertain and it’s one of my absolute favorite wedding gifts.
Our living room in our new home is finally complete so I loved being able to comfortably relax and fit 8 girls casually in this space. I scored these blooms from Trader Joes.
Now for the food!
I made caprese skewers and fruit skewers so everything was easy to eat as finger food. I made life easy on my preggo self and bought macaroons and desert bites from the frozen section of Trader Joes.
The sandwiches were the only time consuming part but definitely a key component of any tea party. I made three different pregnant-friendly (no deli meat) sandwiches: 1. cucumber + cream cheese 2. chicken salad + apple 3. cucumber + cream cheese + dill

All of the moms-to-be!
