VALENTINES DAY IS A GOOD TIME FOR A TEA PARTY!

If you have been waiting for a special occasion to have a tea party with friends. Valentines Day is the perfect time!  Winter can be a long time "indoors" and this is something to look forward to - to break up this season with a tea party is a joy.  Maybe just doing some tea decorating would be fun - setting up a display of tea things in your dining room or kitchen.


I love fun decorations and have a habit of mixing antiques with whimsical things.





I love to decorate for the various
holidays and seasons and keep the
items stored away till the next year.


These little desserts aren't real.



You can mix and match - if you look in your cupboard - pink things and red things may be found.  You may prefer bright red to darker burgundy.....

Good afternoon my friend,
How pretty your tea is today! I love the heart-shaped plates! Valentines Day is the perfect time to host a tea party, I agree! Thanks for sharing. BTW, your link isn't working! I think there is an extra doo-dad in the link you put on. Perhaps you could stop by again and fix it up so no one misses visiting you. Have a delightful day.

Blessings,
Sandi

I love the heart-shaped plates and tea set. I have a set of moss rose china that I use for Valentine’s Day. I like to find different things to add or change up the tablescape each year even though it’s the same china. I usually make candies and goodie bags for everyone.
