Shower Favors and Tea !

I got this bright idea to make party favors, for my daughter's upcoming wedding shower. It's being given by her friend, and bridesmaid Jen, in September.

This is my little prototype. My daughter loved it, and asked if I could make 25?? Of course I can. So I have been working on this little project for the last couple of days.

We are going to fill them with candies. We will have each person's initial on their own tussie mussie, or cone as I like to call them.

Today I took a little break from project central. I went to lunch with my mom, and we stopped in at TJ Maxx.
I could not leave without buying this darling teapot. Then I saw the tea.
A pretty green tin with a crown on it, I jumped on that one. Tea and teapot
$14.00. Sitting down to a cup of tea, after finishing project, priceless!

Here are all of my cones piled up in my new work room, hutch. They are waiting for ribbon, initials and pink tickets.
If you click to enlarge, maybe you can see my daughter's save the date card, that she made.
That is her giant cat Max in the center.

Have a wonderful day!

Rosemary, those party favors are so cute! And the birdie teapot is a really nice find. I love TJ Maxx, always find great things there & at Homegoods.

Rosemary, those are wonderful---really pretty! You are so creative, and everyone will love their favors.

I love the teapot. I always enjoy TJMaxx and Marshalls (and have been known to pout because we don't have Homegoods).

Rosemary, those cones are just wonderful! You're so creative! That teapot is just up my alley (love the little bird). TJ Maxx is such a fun store. I like that it's constantly changing, so you can go twice in a week and see something new each time!

I love that teapot you got - TJ Max? I never find anything that cute at mine!
I guess great minds must think alike - I'm hosting a bridal shower for a niece on Aug. 4th, and I'm making Tussie Mussies, too, only I'm going to fill mine with homemade bath salts! Yours are lovely. Mine are going to be made from paper horns that I bought at the 99-cent store. They are baby printed right now, but I'll cover them with periwinkle and white lace (the wedding colors).

Love the cones, What great little party favors. I love your paper crafts, I could learn a lot from you.

Thrift Shop Romantic said...

I like how you personalized the party favors for each person. It's a really nice touch that I think people will really appreciate and remember. (And if they're even remotely as crafty as you are, they'll integrate them into their decor, too...)

Have a lovely weekend!

Rosemary, the favors you are making for your daughter's shower are just are so talented!

What a lovely teapot. TJ Maxx is one of my favorite stores!!!

Hi, Rosemary,
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I live in Orange County, about nine miles north of Knott's Berry Farm. My niece that the wedding shower is for lives up near your way - Oxnard. Not quite sure exactly how far that is from Ventura but I think it's pretty close, isn't it? After I finish my Tussie Mussies I'll post pics of them. Have a great weekend.
:D Brenda

Your cones are wonderful. How great that you are making some of the favors etc. for the wedding shower. We made a lot for my daughter's wedding, it is so sweet to have the personal touches.

I always love visiting your blog. The french festival looks fun, I've never been either, Santa Barbara is great, isn't it?

The cones are a great idea. I made some like those for Christmas one year & they looked really nice. Your little teapot is just adorable - lucky you!
