Stay humble and be BOLD!
This simple gift is a nice pick me up for someone going through Downton withdrawals or maybe they have a friend named Elsa, who needs to chill out, either way, this will warm and soothe them.
Pick your favorite tea from Twinings, decorative napkins and simply insert them in a clear cd sleeve. The sleeves can be ordered through PSI Media Supplies.
I recently gave these out to the members of our Event Planning Committee who all met with us for a meeting in our neighborhood. These make for a nice, unexpected thank you for coming gifts. Leaving with your guests to help keep them warm and cozy!
Stay humble and be BOLD!
Tea for one or two, maybe more? These Valentines are great for coworkers, neighbors, book club members and Downton Fans! They are easy to assemble, and little love or encouraging notes can be simply inserted as well.
LOVE great deals at yard sales! I would say finding fifty yards of white, wire edged ribbon for 25 cents was a thrill for me. The red basket was found at a another sale. Happily, I found a great new use for CD/DVD clear plastic sleeves that can be ordered from PSI Media Supplies. They hold the beverage napkins just perfectly! Now the stage is almost set for serving out Twinings and Stash tea with decorative beverage napkins.
So all you need is . . .
* Beverage Napkins
* Favorite Tea
* Clear Plastic CD/DVD Sleeves
* Love Notes
* Tissue Paper
* Swiffer Duster (This is if you use burlap or have any other little fibers that might have a static attraction to the sleeves)
Simply slide beverage napkins in sleeves and place the individually wrapped tea of your choice in the corner. You can add little love messages on back or inside as you wish. Have fun playing with the ribbon to get it just how you like it on the basket. Fill in bottom of basket with tissue paper to help Valentines position well.
That's it! Now you have your Valentines ready to go with love, in a hand basket!
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant
or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;
it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends...
Here's the updated pics of how the small (hand cut and frozen) wood props turned out and how they added to the overall decorative centerpiece settings.
Planning a party this weekend and wanted to have three, small items staggered for the table centerpieces. Only problem was two of the items where the same height. To solve that issue, my husband and I searched for the right size tree limb. He started cutting and I worked on dinner. Just call us "Ma" and "Pa" from Little House in The Suburbs.
The tree limb had fallen, so the bark wasn't perfectly attached all the way around. It still will make for a nice, rustic, decorative prop. However, since there can be some unwanted pests lurking, I went to eHow and choose the freezing method to prevent any party crashers.
Pa was able to cut six wood props. Will keep you posted on how these centerpieces turn out with updated pictures. Thanks for reading! Christina aka Ma
