I put together a tea party gift box for my mother-in-law's Mother's Day gift.
I was inspired by Stephanie from The Enchanted Rose. She hosted a tea cup exchange recently and, while I didn't participate, I did very much enjoy seeing the pictures of everyone's exchange gift boxes. As I scrolled through the pictures I thought, "This would be so fun to do for someone!" And suddenly it dawned on me that Mother's Day would provide the perfect opportunity.
I made a list of items that I wanted to either purchase or make. I was so excited that I even drew a sketch of what things would go into my box. :)
Mother's Day Gift Box List:
Pretty Tea Cup
Homemade Honey Taffy
Bath Salts Blend
A Magazine or Book
Next time I went thrifting my eyes were peeled for a pretty tea cup and anything tea party like. I found some rose shaped floating candles, delicate cloth napkins, a beautiful tea cup, and an Ideals magazine, which I was really excited about because my husband's Mom really likes Ideals magazines.
The tea cup took a couple thrift stores to find. It was part of a full set of China. I felt a little bad about breaking up the set, but the pieces were all priced individually and I didn't need to buy the whole set.
The next few posts are going to be relating to some of the things I made to go in this Mother's Day Tea Party Box.
I will be sharing the bath salts recipe, the honey chews recipe (and almost disaster!), and the traditional almond biscotti recipe.
I hope you come back for the recipes! See you soon. :)
