Is your Mum sweet or savoury, does she like crusts on or off, would she prefer a cup of tea or G&T? You know your Mum best, so why not treat her this Sunday and throw her the Mother of all Tea Parties?
You don’t need to go far to find everything you need – just pop into your local Co-op to find award winning sandwiches to scones, Prosecco and Fairtrade tea plus cards, chocs, flowers and fizz.
If Mum prefers savoury to sweet, then remember to serve tasty finger sandwiches with your Afternoon Tea. These look dainty and attractive with crusts off, cut into shapes such as triangles or fingers and arranged on a cake stand or pretty plate. Why not serve a few different types? Co-op has all your favourites as well as a few fancier fillings, all deliciously moreish, no wonder we were voted the Sandwich Convenience Retailer of the Year at the Sammies last year.Find out more about our award winning range
Who doesn’t love cake? We’re proud to introduce our Truly Irresistible Rose Cake to our range, a new centre piece that will delight cake lovers nationwide. The expertly piped design covers a sumptuous Victoria sponge with a smooth buttercream and raspberry jam filling – it really does taste as good as it looks. Other cakes in the Truly Irresistible range this Mother’s Day include: Red Velvet, Salted Caramel and Carrot Cake.
Because nothing complements a slice of cake better, complete your Afternoon Tea with The Co-operative Fairtrade 99 tea blend, 80 tea bags for just £1. It’s an iconic, 100-year-old blend that’s both rich and refreshing, and the first supermarket tea to be Fairtrade accredited. You’ll enjoy your cuppa even more knowing that our growers in East Africa and India are given a better deal.Find out more about our Fairtrade Tea
Get your Mother of All Tea Parties started with Mum's perfect Spotify playlist. Is she a Funky Mum? Rock Chick? Pop Gal'? Vintage Mam?
You’ll find these are two British traditions that go rather wonderfully together. It’s good to know Gordan’s Gin is now £19 for 1 litre until 15th March at your local store.
Make it a classic cream tea, but is it jam or cream first? Either way your Mum will love these scrumptious scones.
What could possibly taste better than Afternoon Tea with a chilled glass of Prosecco? Our Prosecco is just £6.99 a bottle at your local store, until 15th March.
