Tea Favor

Many brides have showers, luncheons, welcomes brunches etc. I have planned a few "Tea Parties" for my lovely brides and they are always a big hit. Favors are very important at these functions more so than the wedding in my opinion. I try to create unique fun little favors or trinkets for the guests that are affordable of course. There is so much you can do with a "Tea Party" its just one of those themes that can go in a few directions. Tea is made all over the world and each place has different traditions and ceremonies surrounding tea. For example, if you were having a garden wedding and wanted to host a tea party with a garden feel you could buy vintage tea cups at any thrift store, antique shop or online. The first thing you want to do is run them through the dish water of course to clean them up. You can use them in many ways, my two favorites are: Filling them with candies such as foil wrapped chocolates or candles. Candle kits are super easy to find at any craft store and are very affordable. All you have to do is melt the wax pour it in the tea cup and place the wick in...VOILA! Its a super cute favor and you can put scented oils into the wax such as rose, gardenia, lavender, berry etc. To add a finished look just wrap the tea cups & Saucers in clear cellophane or tulle with a simple tag.
Another "Tea Party" favor is well tea bags! Tea bags are extremely affordable no a days and the selection is massive.
I purchase tea from STASH tea company frequently. If you visit their website you can purchase different quantities ranging from 30 to 120. Their selection includes teas from India, China & Japan and so many more, a few of my favorites are the Chai flavors.
For a simple thank you/favor tie 6 bags of tea together with a ribbon, tie a tag with your name etc....Super easy and super cute!
You can add these little bundles to your OOT bags with flavors like chamomile to help your guests relax and sleep well.

I have added a few photos to give you an idea of what the little tea bundles look like & the supplies needed.
