Step 1: Make sure she’s free
Okay, the first step is vital. You need to make sure that your mom is free on the day that you’re planning the party. There are two ways you can do this. First of all, you could ask your dad and make sure that he keeps the day free for her. Or, you might want to make fake plans with her so that she is busy with you that day. Either way, it’s important to ensure that she will be around when you need her.

Step 2: Choose a theme
Next, it’s time to choose a theme. After all, no party is complete without a theme. One of the best you can pick is a tea party. That way, you can set up a table in the garden and make loads of yummy food for the two of you to enjoy. You might even want to grab some Champagne for the occasion too.
