As always, I created little party favors for the girls. Back in 2009, for our first tea, I gave the girls little St. Therese plaques. The next year I hand-painted little St. Therese dolls for each of the girls. For our 3rd tea I filled white paper "Tea bags" with treats along with Tea Pot Lollipops. And last year I repeated the "Tea Bags" once again along with Pretzel Rods dipped in white chocolate and pink sprinkles.
This year I decided to do create favors similar to the ones I made for the Baby Shower of Roses. I headed to the dollar store to look for favor boxes and after discovering some "marshmallow poles" decided to try and incorporate a "Maypole" theme as well, since we were hoping to have a Maypole activity this year (more on that later).
Originally I planned to make my own chocolates again, but
Pink Favor Boxes with Ribbon (Dollar Store/Baby Shower Section)
Marshmallow Poles (Dollar Store/Candy Section)
Dove Raspberry Chocolates (Pink)
Hershey Nuggets (Silver)
Bubbles (Wedding Supplies)
The Little Flower Holy Card (free download)
They were very easy to assemble and turned out very cute!
I also filled a basket with Bingo prizes...
... and picked up a little rose plant and box of cookies as a very small* thank you for our hostess.
*I feel like I can't thank her enough for sharing her home with us and saving me so much work!
Once again I am fighting a cold/cough and I need to get back to my ever growing "to-do" list, but I'll be back with more pictures from our tea party soon!
