Brew Up a Party to Remember!

First things first. In order for people to come to your tea party, you have to invite them! Why not do it in a stylish and elegant way? Send out our new arch invites to your fellow tea party goers and make your party stand out right from the start! Let your guests know what you’re celebrating, where the event will be, what time, and more... all in an adorable fashion of course!

For Your Party has the cutest tea favors that are customizable to you and whatever you may be celebrating! From birthdays to I do’s, we’ve got it all! And if we don’t… well, that’s when you can create your own! Use the FYP Customizer to pick the color, text, art, and even the flavor of tea that goes on your tea favors to make them personal to you!

Add Unique Details

Need to stir in honey, sugar, or milk into your tea? Try using our stir sticks adorned with flowers, tea cups, or whatever you choose! These would look simply darling on the table and can be multi-purposeful as well! Use them as skewers for appetizers and small bites to add some personal style to your hors d'oeuvres. They are also a great way to keep track of which drink is yours!
