Tea Party

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!
