Finding those little gifts that are "just right" means....…knowing what tea party favors will go best with your teatime theme, event and pocketbook! Favors are great to use in bridal and baby showers, mothers day and birthday teas, holidays, ladies church socials and Victorian afternoon teatimes. Presenting a favor gives your party that extra finish and provides your guest with a memento of the occasion.
If you are the crafty or artistic type, you could make your own homemade favors. See end of page for some ideas to get you started.
We have saved you time by searching the whole web to find the most charming favors that meet our standards of quality and value.The sites we have found to have the best selection and affordability of tea party favors.
Mini teapot favors would be great for any type of party. They can be filled with mints, candy or loose tea. Get a few extra for the party to use for milk and sugar bowls. These teapots can be painted on, using ceramic paints or markers.
Also excellent for mommy & me or childrens teatime!
Little suitcase tins are
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.
Heart shaped compressed tea are another unique favor to wow your guests with and are good for up to 18 months. Or fill a small bowl to use at your party - simply drop three into hot water and watch them expand. Use them for a heart theme, valentine teatime, engagement or bridal shower.
A housewarming, welcome home, or welcome baby could be some themes using these mini teahouse infusers disguised in the shape of mini houses. Or opt for a mini teapot infuser.
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.
"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?
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!"
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.
Make a big impression with these favors stacked to look like a cake - great for larger affairs and can also be used as a centerpiece for the table or buffet! Available in different designs. Fill them with surprises - maybe each holding a different favor.
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.)
Place quality, loose leaf tea leaves in a small bag, tin, or container. Embellish with ribbons, pictures, stickers, or monogram. The same works for candy as well.
A small jar of homemade jam, preserves, strawberry butter or lemon curd with an attractive label.
A handmade cozy (or pattern and fabric to make their own), rolled up and tied with a ribbon.
Small scrapbook with teatime recipes (including the days fare) and a blank page in the back to insert pictures of the event.
Beaded bracelets or necklace with charms, each made according to the guests favorite colors.
Small gift box or basket filled with tea, scones and muffins.
Beverage napkins monogrammed with stitching or stencils.
