The Tea Party Club
Send your guests home with special remembrance tea party
favors that you present to them as they depart. There are
many varieties of favors to purchase online. Try to stay with
your theme when choosing a tea party favor. We love the
miniature teapots and teacups as favors. Also, popular are
the fragranced soap favors and candle favors that are
available shaped as roses, shells, wedding cakes, and a
variety of other unique shapes. Favor tea bags or miniature
tea tins filled with delicious tea blends can be personalized
with the name of your guest of honor. When choosing tea
party favors, consider teabag caddies and tea infusers.
Choosing Party Favors…
Party favors are a great way to thank your guest for attending your special party. It is a little something to help remember
that special time.
When deciding on your party favors try coordinating them with your party theme. Coordinate your color, designs and other
elements of your party. A personalized favor is a nice touch, because you made them yourself and you took the time to
personalize them for your guest. They can be relatively inexpensive when you make them yourself.
Some examples of favors that you can make yourself are boxed favors, cookie favors or even a potted plant favor. Each
one of these can be personalized with your own special touches.
The boxed favor is usually a beautifully decorated tiny box filled with a special treat inside. You can decorate these boxes
to complement your color theme. A cookie favor is one that is very easy to do. You can be very creative the design of the
cookie. A small potted plant would be an excellent party favor as well as a wonderful take home gift for your guest. This is
something that you can also personalize. You can paint and decorate the small pot to match your party theme. You can
add some beautiful flowers and you are set for your party.
FAVORS MAKE YOUR TEA PARTY MEMORABLE
The finishing touch for any tea party is a favor that you give each guest to remember the occasion. Use your imagination
for the favor you give. You can be as extravagant, playful, exotic, elegant, or as whimsical as you choose. For example,
favors can reflect a theme, a season, a holiday, or simply your own personality. Following are some examples.

metal, paper, or plastic. For a spring fling theme, give each guest a daisy. For Valentine’s Day, give each guest a pink or
For a unique treat, provide the supplies for guests to make their own favors. For example, have guests put five to ten
plastic beads on a green pipe cleaner, wrap the ends together to form a circle, and tie a red ribbon on the wrapped ends.
Voila - they’ve made themselves a little holiday wreath. You can also purchase jewelry beads and elastic for jewelry from
a craft store, have guests string the beads on the elastic, tie a triple knot in the ends of the elastic, and guests then have
their own bracelet to take home.
For you, a favor is a special keepsake to thank guests for attending your party. For guests, however, the favor helps keep
the memory of your party alive. Each time they look at the favor, they can say to themselves, “Oh, I remember the tea party
