Toasts for Tea

Tea-Toasts JF 07

Commonplace at dinner parties, wedding receptions, and corporate affairs, toasts can also be a celebratory touch at a seated tea. Easy-to-make cards bearing a written toast can be used to add a special touch to each place setting. Choose a verse that is significant to the guests or one that speaks to the occasion. Or, write your own heartfelt sentiments on cleverly assembled take-home cards.

Place-Setting-1 JF 07

To make, cut card stock 5 x 7 1/2 inches and attach 4-x-6-inch decorative scrapbook paper by using double-sided tape. Embellish with the selected verse or thoughts. Fold down 1 inch of the top edge. Using a pushpin or a 1/8-inch hole punch, make small holes in the top, approximately 2 inches apart. Using decorative narrow ribbon, secure demitasse spoon, and tie knots on the back side of the card.

Use these lovely toasts as penned personal notes for each person attending your tea or perhaps just for the guest of honor.
