On to the details!
It was very, very hot that day...the vase even steamed up.
My original plan for the menus were stitched booklets, but my sewing machine kept eating the paper. I pulled these together with scraps of paper from around the house.
The Party Favors
I *loved* the party favors. These reusable tea cups literally hit the local shops that week. I had been out with my sister the week before and hadn't seen them anywhere. It was total kismet.
My mom and sister wouldn't use the mugs, so I gave them tea-scented lotion.
I added a tea bag and customized tag to each cup. (Is it considered unoriginal if you repeat your own designs?)
I packaged the gifts, along with some psychedelic cookies, in the most perfect green and purple boxes from the Container Store.
I made custom confetti by running fuschia, chartreuse, and violet paper through a shredder.
