Give your tea bags the display case they deserve!

As promised, the creator of Vintage Twee, the lovely Joanne, has been busy crafting away this week on the design of the latest vintage-inspired product! We are pleased to introduce the beautiful Vintage Tea Jars and Table Name Holders, perfect for weddings or that all important tea party.

Each jar is carefully altered using the finest vintage lace and material in stunning shades of ivory and white. Providing a fantastic excuse to display your tea bag needs in the kitchen, the front of the jar reads “tea” on a gorgeous lace-decorated label and strings of pearls add that complete vintage feel. Whilst they wouldn’t look out of place on a glamorous 1940’s sideboard….bring them in to 2010 by displaying them in neat rows on the windowsill!

As we at Vintage Twee like to ensure that all our hand crafted items have more than one use, these unique jars work not only as the perfect gift for a special friend or a treat for yourself, but also as amazing centre pieces for a either a tea party, English Garden or Vintage themed wedding. They could be filled with rose petals and placed in the centre of the tables, use 4 of them grouped together to give maximum effect! The labels can be customised to read words of your choice… how about reflecting the theme of your wedding in the words by using them to display your table names? Or go for simple classics such as “Love”, “Honour”, “Cherish” and “Respect”. Maybe you’d prefer to stick with the tea theme and label each jar with a different flavour of tea? Of course, it would only be right to fill the jars with the corresponding tea bag and ask guests them to help themselves! (Approx Size Per Jar: Height 5.5 inches x Diameter 12inches)

It would be lovely to hear your feedback on our new items, feel free to comment on the blog post or to email Joanne for any further information. We welcome any special requests- if you would like your jars custom made in particular colours, embellishments or wording, just email with your ideas and we will do all possible to help!
