We had such a wonderful time at our tea party for my mom’s birthday! Just wanted to share a few photos!
All ready for the guests to arrive –
Here is the favor I made for everyone – it held a little tea bag with a cute friendship poem. Some of the ladies who came have been friends of my mom’s for over 60 years! (see below for measurements for favor)
Here is a close up of the poem –
Tea party food!
We served yummy food – chicken salad, cucumber sandwiches, cream scones with devonshire cream, lemon curd tarts, mini muffins, maple oat scones, and of course a birthday cake.
We all ate too much but we decided it was ok because it was a party after all! And here is a picture of my mom, my daughter Sarah and me.
See this post to see the invitation I made for the tea party.
Here are the details on the tea party favor!
I used the Cup of Tea stamp set. The base of the tea holder was cut from Whisper White card stock – 4 inches x 7 1/4 inches.
I scored the base at 1 1/2 inches, 4 1/4 inches and 4 1/2 inches.
I folded on the 1 1/2 inch score line to create a little pocket for the tea bag, using sticky strip for a good hold.
The poem was simply typed up and printed on Whisper White card stock – and punched with the Decorative Label Punch.
For the front of the tea bag holder – I stamped the “You’re my cup of tea” stamp with Pink Pirouette ink onto Whisper White card stock and used one of the oval framelits to cut it out.
I placed a 2 1/2 inch x 4 inch piece of Pink Pirouette patterned paper onto the front of the tea bag holder. This paper is from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack. Love these stacks of paper!
I popped up the stamped image with dimensionals – and wrapped a piece of Whisper White satin ribbon around the entire thing and tied a big bow.
The pink flower was a perfect match it is from the Artisan Embellishment kit. You get
quite a few of these lots of these in this kit, along with some other fun buttons, papers, doilies, etc.
I have listed all supplies used on this project for your shopping convenience!
Thanks for stopping by!
