Step 3: Fold Tea Towel

This step is easy peasy! Fold the towel in half lengthwise, then fold in thirds. You can really fold it however you like!

Prep Tip: These towels come in packs of twelve, so it might be easiest to start an assembly line and fold them all first.

Step 4: Add the Tag

Print, cut and hole-punch your thank you tags. You can use these free printable templates for chalkboard tags and  rustic tags or you can buy pre-made ones. Next, cut a piece of jute twine about 24″ long and thread the tag on the twine. Now wrap the twine twice around the tea towel.

Bon Voyage – Super Bridal Shower Idea!

Here’s a different kind of bridal shower idea – a Bon Voyage party! 

No, your happy newlyweds-to-be don’t have to be embarking on a honeymoon cruise or flying off to an island destination.  It can be a honeymoon in the mountains, Napa Valley –  or anyplace, actually. 

Here’s how it works:

Discover the honeymoon location, then do a little online research on the area:

  • Spas
  • Amusement parks
  • Comedy clubs
  • Tours and expeditions
  • Restaurants
  • Florists
  •  

    Contact the most interesting ones via email to find out what gift certificates/services they offer.  Then plan your Bon Voyage party! 

    Provide invitees with the information they need to add a bouquet, a bottle of champagne, basket of fruit or perhaps a box of chocolates to the room.  Or how about a nice brunch at the hotel, in-room couples massages, an ATV expedition, tickets to a museum, amusement park, IMAX theater – once you’ve done the research, the possibilities are endless! 

    Now you need some memorable favors for your guests.  These are theme-perfect for a bon voyage celebration!

         

    Happy Planning!
