An Invitation to Tea

Recently our church invited the widows of our church to a “Forget-Me-Not” tea. When a few of the guests were unable to come, we decided to widen our invitation to include others.  We served  the tea in china tea cups (the best way to drink tea) at small tables for four.  We asked some ladies to pour.  This was the invitation we sent the guests:

I made each guest a embroidered felt forget-me-not brooch like these:

I put a piece of craft foam between the layers of felt , sewed the edges by hand and sewed a safety pin to the back.

We served tea, scones with cream and jam and squares all made and served by  the women and girls of  our congregation.  It gave us an opportunity to show that we care and everyone had a such a lovely time that we have decided to make it an annual event.
