October Showers Bring November Weddings

My baby sister's wedding is officially one month away.  I cannot believe how quickly it has come.  As her bridesmaids, we are packing as much wedding fun into this weekend as possible.  Tonight, we are staring things off with an old school sleepover.  It'll be filled with nail polish and magazines and silly stories.  Tomorrow, I'm getting up early to make everyone breakfast.  We will have her tea shower in the afternoon followed by a night out in the French Quarter.  Whew!  I'm pooped already.

I spent last night making favors/place cards for the tea.  I knew I wanted something feminine and very tasty. 

I found these Martha Stewart gift bags at Michael's and thought they'd be just the right size to place on tables as a combination favor and place card. 

I had originally planned to find a "gift tag" shaped paper cutter to creat my own "tea tags" to use to close the favor bags.  These would also be used to state the name of the attendee and the table they are assigned to.  When I scoured the scrapbooking aisle, I found these beautiful Martha Stewart gift tags already made.  Skipped several steps for me!  Woohoo!  They were so pretty and they looked just like tea tags!

The finished product came out just how I pictured it in my head.  Each bag is filled with scrumption tea cookies.  You can find my recipe for pecan sandies HERE.

Each table has been assigned a different tea flavor.  We have a Chamomile, Earl Grey, Orange Spice, Peppermint, and English Breakfast table.  Below are the table markers I made using scrapbook paper that matches the place cards.  They will be inserted into floral picks in the centerpieces. 

I have to admit, I'm sort of all crafted out!  I never thought I'd say those words!
