Christmas Project #2

A Gypsy Tea
Rachel Carlson


Just a few peeks at "a gypsy glee tea" that I will be hosting in my home.
Tea and cookies will be served to my close friends along with handmade gifts.
Who doesn't need a break before the holiday rush?

Invite


Place Setting

Cut outs of the bird cage - victoria 6x6 paper variety pack(Pandora paper)
I tied two pieces of a tree branch with wire and made a hook to hold the bird cage.

Paper cones for tiny cookies


victoria 6x6 paper variety pack victoria brads victoria naked paper tape to close up the cones-(you can see a bit of yellow in the picture above) I will add tiny cookies (family recipe) in cellophane bags and put in cones to go with the tea.

party favor pockets



victoria 6x6 paper variety pack, naked pockets, paper tape
I added a package of mulling spices for tea/wine and a cinnamon stick - yummy!

When the ladies come over next month, I can hardly wait to see everyone's expression when they see the little details of gypsy love!

So pretty! What stamp did you use for "rachel" and "a treat for you"? I'd love to know - really like the font.
