From delicate finger sandwiches to buttery scones, here are seven recipes perfect for a Mother’s Day tea party spread. 

1. Emerald Palmers
Susan Feniger’s refreshing green tea-based mocktails would also be great spiked with gin. 

2. Almond Flour Blueberry Scones

A combination of almond and arrowroot flours makes for perfectly dense, crumbly scones in this easy-to-follow recipe.

3. Herb-Topped Sweet Potato Biscuits
These biscuits get a kick from cayenne pepper and an aromatic lift from fresh herbs. 

4. Rose Petal Jam
Use this thick, fragrant jam on toast and warm biscuits.

5. Deviled-Egg Spread
Here, the retro hors d’oeuvre gets deconstructed: Blend hard-boiled eggs with mustard and mayonnaise and serve with toast points. 

6. Radish Tea Sandwiches with Miso Yogurt
These lovely tea sandwiches from Justin Chapple are super-adaptable. You can use butter or full-fat yogurt instead of fat-free yogurt, and you can substitute sliced baby turnips or daikon for the radishes.

7. Chocolate-Frosted Éclairs
Here, the classic dessert gets lightened with whipped cream for the fluffiest éclair around.
