Hello! I am helping with a mother/daughter tea at my church. We would like to make some kind of favors using tea bags. Does anyone know of a poem or saying we can attach to it?
Tea pot is on, the cups are waiting,
Favorite chairs anticipating,
No matter what I have to do,
My friend there's always time for you.
At Christmas one year at one of the Christmas parties, we each received a tea bag attached to a cut out piece of construction paper in the shape of a tea pot. The saying on the tea pot could be adjusted to fit your theme.....
On Christmas Day
At half past three
Brew yourself a cup of tea,
And I'll think of you
While you think of me
Sitting beside the Christmas tree.
My parents live quite a distance from me and they sent me a cup made from plastic canvas. It was made from two pieces of plastic canvas cut in shapes like a cup and a bit of yarn decoration around the top and sewn together with the yarn. It also has a magnet on the back. It came with a note " I wish we could sit down and have a cup of tea.
How about something like-Having you for a mom-suits me to a T
I saw a nice card made years ago with Happy Mother's Day on the front, but the front could be decorated any way you like with bits of lace and stencils to look like an old Victorian tea pot. It was a piece of coloured construction paper folded in half and cut out in the shape of a tea pot. Nice wall paper could be the outer cover with the plain paper inside for the message. Inside was a poem on one side and a tea bag attached to the other side. It read, Sit down Mom and talk with me, let's share our thoughts over cups of tea.
I found a cute Mothers Day Tea Poem on this site. They have a lot of cute ideas.
I did this a couple years ago. I used fruit flavored tea bags and wrote from the Bible: Galations 5:22, 23; " But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control."
I bought a couple of these at a craft show, there are made of plastic canvas and are cut in a shape of a tea cup. There are two pieces and they are stitched all around the outside with wool.
GinAnn, you could use a famous quote from a former First Lady:
A woman is like a tea bag- you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.
I am looking for poems for the little girls to say at our mother-daughter banquet ( which is like a tea party).
I just found one on www.thevirtualvine.com and it has a lot more than just this one. This one reads:
I am your little flower, Mom
Please help me grow and bloom
Mom, you are my gardener;
My sunshine adn my rain.
Too much (I changed to too little) will make me wither
with enough, I'll bloom again.
I am you little flower, Mom
I'm different from the rest;
Don't pick me Mom, just help me grow
To be my very best.
Just last night I found one that had been given to me .It was printed on a tea cup shape which was cut fom construction paper and stapled(2pcs.) to form a pocket to hold a teabag. The verse said: A cup of tea to say Thank you For all the things you've done. And wishes that the day will bring You happiness and fun. HAPPY MOTHER's DAY!! Love------The front side had a sun, a bird and flowers drawn on it and it could be colored.
To GinAnn: Our mother/daughter tea... we decorated the tables with different tea settings. We used the theme "Unbreakable cups of joy" The speaker talked on relationships between friends and mothers to their daughters and how God specially placed each person in our life at the desired time we needed them and how some stay 4-ever and some are just borrowed for a moment and while they are in your life, they help God by using themselves to help you in difficult times and on how we should love and thank each other. We had children tea sets with tea bags as gifts.
Here's the one I like:
A CUP OF TEA
When your day seems topsy turvey
And as stormy as can be
There's nothing quite as tranquil
As a nice hot cup of tea
While you savor this ambrosia
Your problems fade away
Its warmth will bring you comfort
And brighten up your day
So take a private moment
There's a calmness as you'll see
All because you briefly stopped
To sip a cup of tea.
One of my favorites:
Mothers are the trees under which daughters look for shelter.
We love your poems on teabags and have decided we are going to dedicate our lives to teabags in the hope that someday one of us will become Mrs Teabag!!! We love you PG Tips!!!""
These are all very sweet and this is just what I was look for, so thank you
and Merry Christmas to all and I wish for everyone a great start to the New Year!
