Posts Tagged ‘Tea’

The past few days have been a whirlwind of travel, snow, sisters, skirts, showers, and finally for me, sun!

I am so excited to finally be enjoying some beautiful real live sunshine, as it has been a bit dismal January for the Elle Street Inn. But now! A delightful full-fledged dose of vitamin D.

During the whirlwind, my sisters continued to be my little minions of creativity and cleanliness. We polished the Inn top to bottom in preparation for the shower today! They must have felt like little Cinderella’s. Oh dear. But we did make it a sunny spic & span slice of home, and hopefully a spot full of bunting, festoons and navy blue cheer. After the cleaning frenzy, we made the sweetest little favors. The favorite tea of the sweet couple is “Lady Grey”, and conveniently for us, the Twining’s version is a crisp beautiful blue. These are the raw materials.

For each favor we’d attach a flag & label to each tea-bag with a shiny red staple. Almost forty staples later… Ta-da!

I have to say these are some of the most enjoyable little favs I’ve ever done. I am certainly looking forward to the next time I can use this snaky idea. Imagine what you could do for Valentine’s Day party! Perhaps a Chai or English Breakfast (Red) with a English Afternoon (Pink), tied into little parcels with cream chiffon and a little rosette?

Speaking of Valentines Day. I’ve promised you all some vintage vals. So. Here you are. If I were you…I’d print this out 6 to a page, clip with edged sheers, and hand stitch with pink thread to brown paper. Write a sweet message on the back and throw into a pink envelope.
