so unique and perfect for bon voyage, honeymoon, off to college/new job tea parties. Fill them with tea bags, mints, or wrapped square chocolates. Beau-coup also has many other tins to choose from.

candles in teacups  favors

Tea lights in elegant mini china teacups, edged in silver are sure to impress your guests. I think these are a great value - they look expensive but are not. Use favors for formal teatimes, silver anniversary or birthday, weddings, or a victorian party.

Cute and yummy! - these brownie pops are decorated as animals, a baby head, bride and groom, or holiday designs. Lady bugs would go along well with a polka-dot theme or for a Red Hat party.teatime favors sachets


Tea Sachets are simple and classic party favors that are always a crowd pleaser, not to mention you are sure they will get used. They are a very economical choice and can be used for any teatime.tea party favor sugar tongs


"Gimme some sugar!" is what is engraved on these sugar tongs. A great choice for favors because they can be used not just for sugar, but for fruit, petit fours, and other small sweets. How about a sugar and spice theme?party favor cheesecake


So cute, you could almost eat them - but look twice, they are actually small towels made to look like cheesecake! How cute is that? Teatime Party Idea: Have a cheesecake theme where everyone brings two slices of their favorite cheesecake, arrange them on a cake stand and place these favors under the stand in a circle. You could also wait until time to leave and hand each guest one while saying "Here is a slice of cheesecake to go!" favors garden party

Mini Topiary favors are just what is called for, for your garden teatime party. They can be used as name holders at the party and then as recipe holders when taken home. A fun way to incorporate them in a game is by hiding them around the yard with each guest's name on them and they have to find their own name - the first one to find their's gets a small prize. Or you could put clues on them, as a sort of treasure hunt.

Petit fours and mini individual tier cakes
for favors always make for a very elegant party. Wrap in cellophane or allow guest to choose and place in provided container. Idea: push a small item in the bottom of one of the cakes and whoever picks that cake wins a prize. (small plastic baby for baby shower, a ring for wedding/bridal shower, candle for birthdays, candy heart for valentine teatime.)
