You’ve made your plan, created a theme and menu, set a date, now it’s time to send invitations. I’m including 2 of my personal favorites from my past tea parties and I’ve also included some I’ve found online. So many great ideas – take your pick!

This first one is a fabric pocket I made with tea bag shaped invitation that is pulled out of the pouch. The date/time/place info is on the back. I also made matching napkins for the tea party with the same yellow fabric….

This second one is a custom seed packet I made with a tea bag inside. The picts show how you can do it yourself….

Front

Back - shows where tea bag is inserted

To make your own, get a regular paper seed packet

Gently peel the glued flaps of the seed packet so you can unfold it and lay flat

Trace the seed packet on a flower picture, cut out, fold and glue as seed packet was

(The graphics for the seed packet invite I made up on the computer.)

Here are some super cute invitations I found online…
