Tea For Two-sday ~ When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Luscious Lemon Cake

Happy Tea For Two-sday!! I hope you are having a lovely week so far. I am - because summer vacation has started! :)

I wanted to share with you the teacher gifts I put together since they included tea and since lemon goes so nicely with tea. I decided to use a lemon theme. Here's a picture of what I included.

I already had the Lemon Zinger tea on hand. The glass and lemon candle I found at Dollar Tree. I made Luscious Lemon Cakes, but put the batter in my Pampered Chef flower mold to make little lemon cakes. They turned out so pretty - and delicious! Well, I had to taste test, right??

I had recently found the recipe by Katie from good Life {Eats} to make this homemade lemon Kitchen Hand Scrub. It turned out great! What a lovely gift, and so simple to make.

I did also throw in a pack of school-themed computer paper and a card. The lemon-themed gifts turned out great and were inexpensive at the same time. You could use these ideas for birthday gifts, hostess gifts, and more.

What are you doing with your lemons? Have a lovely Two-sday!!

Being able to make your own simple gifts is part of a Beautiful Life for me - find more beauty and link up at The Inspired Room!
