You may want to gather up some teapots for decorating first and see what the dominant colors are in those before you decide on a color.
Usually sweet and simple will make a tea luxurious.
Gather up teapots and teacups.
Arrangements in teacups or teapots
Focal Point: Doll Tea Party - Use a child's table set up for tea with dolls seated as guests in the chairs.
Background music - Have some beautiful classical type music playing in the background.
Tea Pot Song
If this is for a Mother-Daughter Banquet, have a group of the smaller ones sing the "I'm a Little Teapot" song together. The moms will love it!

Q. Why should you be careful about drinking tea at night?
A. Because it might mug you!
If you are having a tea for your Mother's Day banquet and will have some younger kids, you may want to put a few crayons at the tables with a coloring sheet to color.
It will give them something to do, especially if there is a lot of conversation that will not include them.
Try to find some tea themed color pages for them to color.
Food and Serving
Have a tea tasting table and let the ladies try some unusual or different blends.
