A Look Back at Mother's Day

Mother's day was first celebrated in 1912, coincidentally, the same year my mother's house was built. This year it lands on May 10th (it's always the 2nd Sunday of May) and I thought this would be a good opportunity to revisit my Mother's Day Tea Party I held last year as inspiration. I usually try and come up with a unique theme from year to year. The time before that it was Caribbean Cookout with Jerk Chicken, Mango Shrimp, Coconut CousCous, Piña Coladas and more!

What should I do this year? Leave a comment with your ideas.
