Little Flowers “Maypole” Tea Party Favors and Prizes

by | Apr 15, 2013 | Little Flowers, Little Flowers Tea Party, Mother-Daughter Tea 2013, St. Therese, Teatime | 6 comments

We had such a lovely time at our our annual Mother-Daughter Tea Party yesterday afternoon!  I have so many pictures to share that I hardly know where to begin…  It is going to be a very busy week, so it may take me a little time to get to it all, but I think I will start with the party favors and then move on to the games before I finish with the pictures from the actual tea.

As always, I created little party favors for the girls.  Back in 2009, for our first tea,  I gave the girls little St. Therese plaques.  The next year I hand-painted little St. Therese dolls for each of the girls.  For our 3rd tea I filled white paper “Tea bags” with treats along with Tea Pot Lollipops.  And last year I repeated the “Tea Bags” once again along with Pretzel Rods dipped in white chocolate and pink sprinkles.

This year I decided to do create favors similar to the ones I made for the Baby Shower of Roses.   I headed to the dollar store to look for favor boxes and after discovering some “marshmallow poles” decided to try and incorporate a “Maypole” theme as well, since we were hoping to have a Maypole activity this year (more on that later).

Originally I planned to make my own chocolates again, but my husband said he’d rather pay for chocolates than wash my candy molds, which I have a habit of leaving in the sink! it was easier to just pick up some at the store.  ðŸ˜‰

Favor Supplies:
Pink Favor Boxes with Ribbon (Dollar Store/Baby Shower Section)
Marshmallow Poles (Dollar Store/Candy Section) 
Dove Raspberry Chocolates (Pink)
Hershey Nuggets (Silver)
Bubbles (Wedding Supplies)
The Little Flower Holy Card (free download)

They were very easy to assemble and turned out very cute!  
I also filled a basket with Bingo prizes…
… and picked up a little rose plant and box of cookies as a very small* thank you for our hostess. 
*I feel like I can’t thank her enough for sharing her home with us and saving me so much work!
Once again I am fighting a cold/cough and I need to get back to my ever growing “to-do” list, but I’ll be back with more pictures from our tea party soon!

    My husband agrees that it's easier to just buy chocolates than to make them. We presently have three molds sitting in the sink that I was hoping someone else might wash…of course that usually backfires when someone pops them in the dishwasher.

    Despite the extra work I still do love the molded chocolates! I'm glad I'm not the only one who leaves the dirty molds in the sink… They really aren't that difficult to wash, but that's easy for me to say since I'm rarely ever the one to wash them! lol Thankfully none of mine have ended up in the dishwasher… yet!

    so sorry you have a cold. We'll say a prayer that it doesn't last too long.
    It looks like it was a beautiful tea party, can't wait to see the pictures!

    I totally love your creative idea! Your very talented and so artsy of you to think of making those party favors for several years now. I love the image of St. Therese too. Get well soon, Jessica! I am excited for the other pictures you haven't uploaded yet. 🙂 –

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
