May Brit Kit Co-op DIY (PAR-DIY)

May brought about another Brit Kit Co-Op for me and this one was a BIG hit!  The chalk board cheese trays from last month were a big hit, but May's Brit Kit was so much fun to make and there was so much creativity brought about with this kit!  We all loved it!



I'm a bit old fashioned when it comes to party invites and I like the personal touch when handing someone an invite to a party.  I think a lot of people have lost touch with that tradition though, but I am still holding on strong with it. 

The rain held out for a few minutes longer while I took some pictures and while DIYers arrived, but then hit again later that evening. Good ole' Oregon.



We put our April Brit Kit, with the chalkboard theme, to good use for this co-op too.  We had quite a lovely spread of goodies and thanks to some of the Party City party ware left from last month we were all set.



Everyone put their creativity to work with this Brit Kit and it was fun watching everyone come up with different designs.


I even let Skylar paint a bag.

Some people free-handed a design, and others used the tape to lay out straight lines. 

While our bags were drying we made some tea and enjoyed the snacks.

The tea with this Brit Kit Co-Op package came from Blackbird Tea Co. and was amazing!  It was so delicious that we all had two or three mugs full.

The flavors we enjoyed were Marrakech Mint and Chai Rojo and you can actually get these flavors yourself right from the Blackbird Tea Co. site for under $12.   The tea is loose leaf tea and comes with the most adorable tea bags that you fill yourself.  It was so much fun to be able to experiment with different amounts and changes of flavor with this tea.


Thanks so much Blackbird Tea Co. for offering us a new adventure with tea. 

Blackbird Tea Co. is on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, and even YoutTube too, so be sure and follow them and find out more about the tea company.

Thanks so much Brit + Co for another great Brit Kit Co-Op party.  We all had such a great time making our Brit Kit bags and everyone had different ideas on how to use them.  From the beach, to the grocery store, to even used as a library bag for books.
