Heritage Spring Tea and Soiree gift bags

 Here is a sneak peak at what the first 60 people into the Soiree on Friday will be recieving.

There are some really great goodies...
There is a candle from Real Deals as well as a 15% off coupon, a lavender pouch from Danner& Soli, a upcycled book mark by Roost, a FREE pass to Northern Lights and a sample sized lotion made by Roost with our signature scent Vintage.

If you don't make it to the Soiree on Friday don't worry too much because those of you with Pre-buy Tea tickets will be recieving one too!

This lotion sample for the gift bags was quite the project.  Here was my weekend...

Essential Oils to create my scents

2 oz containers to be filled with lotion

Making the lotions
 Transfering the lotion to the sample containers.  I used a ziplock bag that I cut a hole into in order to squeeze the lotion into the sample cups.  That way I don't loose product and clean up is a breeze.
 I have now filled all my sample containers.  Now it's time to label.
 So because just labeling was not enough for me I decided to get out my fabric scraps and make a little rag rose on top just to make it a little bit more Roost like.  I'm loving how they turned out.  I hope everyone likes the lotion and the bookmark!  Can't wait to see you all there at the shows!!
