Are you planning a tea party themed wedding? If so, you may want to run down my list of top tea party themed bridesmaid gifts. Each one is a party favor idea that I have used during my years as a special events planner. Here they are:
Tea Infuser and Tea Leaves
Based on my experience, a tea infuser paired with a smattering of tea leaves makes a lovely tea party themed bridesmaid gift. Tea infusers and loose tea leaves vary in price and are available through specialty shops, grocery stores and keuze helper stores. In most cases, you may expect to pay $3 to $6 for the tea infuser and $10 for a 2 lb bag of loose tea leaves.Flavored Sweeteners
There are many ways to sweeten hot tea. Among them are flavored honeys, rock and granulated sugars. As such, bottles of flavored sweeteners like tupelo and black sage honey would make excellent party favors as would decorative tins filled with rock sugar. Depending on the sweetener, you may expect to pay around $20 to $30 for each gift (full retail). Not only for bridesmaid, but this can also be a good Cadeau meisje 8 jaar. Flavored sweeteners like granulated sugars, flavored honeys and others will certainly be appreciated and loved by both kids and adults. Hence, this is one of the best tea themed gifts.
Tea Travel Kits
Do your bridesmaids like to travel? If so, a tea travel kit ($25) would make a superlative bridesmaid gift. Most ready-made tea travel sets come with a carrying case, a tea scoop, tea infuser and decorative tea tins. Of course you could also opt to make your own tea travel kits. Personally, I’d recommend that you do create your own kits. That way you can be sure that the kits will match your wedding colors.
Bone China Cup and Saucer
I don’t know about you, but I love dainty, bone china tea cups and saucers. As a young girl, they were an essential part of my tea parties. They also make superlative party favors when dressed up even more with flowers. To temporarily fill the tea cups with flowers, stuff each one with a hunk of floral foam. Then insert fresh or faux flowers of your choice inside the floral foam. A dab of floral putty or clay is also helpful when it comes to temporarily attaching the tea cup to the saucer. The floral supplies may be purchased through a florist or craft supply shop for less than $10. The cups and saucers tend to be available for purchase through china shops, specialty home stores and department stores for less than $10 a set.Flavored Teas and Tea Cookies
A nice assortment of loose teas in decorative tins or tea bags in tulle bags would also make ideal party favors. You could also throw in a package of high end or homemade tea cookies. I’d suggest that if you do go that route, that you buy the tea, tea cookies and the containers in bulk. It tends to be less expensive that way plus it allows for more customization. For example, you could customize each tin or bag to suit each bridesmaid’s personality.
