Ladies and gents it’s tea time! There is nothing better than enjoying your tea with cookies. These cookies are not your regular sugar cookies though. Oh no, I went beyond that. I present you Tea Bag cookies dipped in chocolate! So gather your tea cups and friends and let’s throw a tea party!

Tea Bag Cookies – Tea Time

Tea Bag Cookies - Tea Time
Easy Tea Cookies Recipe

  • 1 cup of softened butter
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix butter, sugar, egg and vanilla extract using a mixer or whisk just until the ingredients come together. Be careful not to over mix.
  2. In a separate bowl mix flour, salt and baking powder.
  3. Next fold your dry ingredients into the wet ingredients using a spatula. Divide the dough in half.
  4. Wrap each half in a plastic wrap and put it in the fridge for about an hour. Once the dough is ready to go preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Roll out your dough and cut the cookies to look like a tea bag, using a paper straw poke a hole on the top.
  6. Bake them for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Melt the chocolate chips in a heat proof bowl either in a double-boiler or the microwave.
  8. Once the cookies are cool and the chocolate is melted, dip the end of your cookies into the chocolate, then transfer to a parchment sheet to allow the chocolate to harden.

These were inspired by the lovely Tea Time bridal shower stationery collection. The minute I saw it I knew I should make these.



Lastly cut some ribbon and place it through the hole of your cookies making a little knot on top. That’s it! You now have created the most adorable tea bag cookies to go with your Tea Time party! Aren’t they lovely?

Charcoal Gray Wedding Invitations

With the Pantone color Glacier Gray as our inspiration, we put together this charcoal gray wedding invitations inspiration board. We are seeing more of the cooler and softer side of colors for weddings this season, but you can add in pops of bold colors as accent colors, like ravishing reds to bright yellows and daring hot pinks.

  • Wedding dress: Silk chiffon and lace with ostrich-feathers. Can we just say YES!
  • Wedding reception decor: Taupe chargers and light gray linens bring warmth and romance to this reception.
  • Wedding cake: Sugar Ruffles grey ombre wedding cake.
  • Groomsman: Grey suits are generally reserved for fall or winter weddings, but add a bright pop of color in the boutineer for a look for all seasons.

Wedding Guest Etiquette: The Do’s and Don’ts of Being a Guest

perfect wedding proposal

Today we have Wedding Paper Divas style & trend expert, Amber Harrison on our wedding blog giving you advice and tips on how to be the best wedding guest. Amber Harrison is our resident authority on the latest wedding trends and etiquette guidelines. She combines tradition, personal style and the hottest trends to help each couple celebrate their unique love story on their big day.

If you’re not planning a wedding this year, chances are you’ve been invited to one! Today on Small talk. Big day. I’ll help you be the best guest.

Here are a few tips for great wedding guest etiquette:

  • RSVP On Time! You know that fill-in-the-blank card that came with the invitation? Yep, you’re supposed to mail that back, like, right now. Don’t make the couple hunt you down – just mail it before the listed deadline. Oh, and texts and emails? They don’t count!
  • Don’t Assume a Plus-One Unless your invitation specifically lists another guest, don’t assume you have a plus-one or that you can bring the kids. If you think you’ve been slighted, don’t take it personally and don’t confront the couple. There are a million reasons why you weren’t invited with a guest—including budget, which can be a really sensitive topic.
  • Stick With the Registry The registry is there for a reason – you really can’t go wrong! If you can’t find a registry, ask a family member or someone from the wedding party – it’s their job to point you in the right direction. Good exceptions to this rule include really personal, meaningful gifts, gift cards or cash.

Countless hours have been spent planning the perfect event with you in mind, so be a gem and return the favor. It’s bound to be an epic celebration with or without a date.

I want to hear from you! Post a comment to me below with your questions and I may answer them (anonymously, of course!) in an upcoming episode.

Don’t forget to follow along and show me all *your* favorite wedding inspiration. #SmallTalkBigDay

Balboa Park Engagement Shoot

This week we are featuring Angelique and Daniel’s Balboa Park engagement shoot in sunny California. The couple met 6 years ago while accidentally bumping into one another on a night out in San Jose, CA. The couple describes it as love at first sight.

Their relationship hasn’t always been that easy though. 2 years into their courtship they were challenged with having to have a long distance love as Daniel moved to San Diego to continue grad school and receive his degree to become a Doctor of Physical Therapy. The couple then spend 2.5 years traveling back and forth over 400 miles to be together.

After Daniel’s graduation he moved back home and on a small mini vacation back to their dear little city that meant so much to them, he proposed on the beach! This is where they chose to take their engagement photos, at the place where they often went on dates and built a foundation for their future marriage.

DIY Succulent Favors for Bridal Showers

Let love bloom with these easy diy succulent favors. For this week’s feature, Lary shows us how to create charming diy succulent favors using mini planters, paint of your choice, and personalized gift tags to fit a garden themed bridal shower.

Succulent Favors – Garden Party

Succulents are the best. No one will ever argue that HA! Why not use them as décor on your table at your next get together plus give them away as favors? These guys last forever, even for those who can’t keep plants alive. My self included. To create these you need to gather some materials including these lovely gift tags part of the Garden Party collection! The rest of the supplies are succulents, clay pots, white acrylic paint, a brush, a single hole punch, scissors and last but not least white ribbon.



Start by painting your pots using the white paint with any design you might like. While these are drying, cut out your gift tags. Punch a hole on the top, then place a little piece of ribbon through it. Put them aside. Once your pots are dry and ready to go, transfer your succulents over. To finish them up, tie your ribbon around it placing the gift tag on the front! That’s it! You will have custom party favor within minutes. It’s all in the details when it comes to hosting. I’m sure your guests will love them. Do you love succulents too? Will you be making these for your next party?
