I hope you have been invited to someone's home for a Valentine Tea - if not - why not go out for tea and support your local tea room or invite some friends over and have a tea yourself!  Your friends will love you!

This morning I took a few moments and set my dining room table for tea:

Several years ago I sold the bone china tea set with the hearts - but sadly they are discontinued and no longer made.....  it was called "Lucy's Love".  A friend said she
found some at a Home Goods Store a
few years ago.

The little heart plates are also no longer produced.  If you see one sometime in an antique mall - grab it! They were made by THT which stood for Tender Heart Treasures which was a popular company importing from China back in the early 21st century.

Gather round the table here..............


  1. Bernideen, your table is lovely all set for a Valentines Tea. The heart plates are so pretty! I have a teacup which matches your hearts pattern. Enjoy your day.


  2. Ah, your tea table and all of the hearts made me smile! I love the little tea towel with its sweet embroidery!! :)

  3. Hi Bernideen,
    Your tea settings are always with outstanding china. So the heart design on ea pot and tea cup is just perfect for Velentine's day. But the heart shaped plates are too cute. You have so many nice things for tea. Thank you for giving us always new inspirations.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  4. My little granddaughters would LOVE that!

    I posted pictures last Sept. of our visit to a tea room when we got together for vacation.

    The adore tea rooms and especially love it when there is some whimsy. :)

  5. Oh Bernideen, this set is so lovely and the heart-shape plate - so sad they're not made any more. Your table is so romantic...what a lovely Valentines tablesetting! Thanks for hosting!
    Hope you have a fantastic week,

  6. I love your table! I have a Teaset much like the Teapot on your table.

  7. Your table looks stunning, Bernideen! I love the Valentine teapot and tea cups, and the heart-shaped plate - beautiful! When I get a little less busy, I'm going to regularly get myself into your Weds party!

  8. Hi Bernideen: I love your table-setting. It looks so inviting and such a happy place to sit and enjoy your company. I love dropping by to see your new tea settings. Always so pretty. Hugs, Deb (Ontario, Canada)

  9. What a darling table setting for a Valentines Tea. Love your heart dishes. I have very few valentine pieces, maybe I should start collecting! Just noticed your lovely corner curio cabinet. I had one just like it but gave it away. Wish I still had it now!

  10. Hello Bernideen
    Everything looks so pretty for your Valentine's tea. I'm hoping my DH will take me out for tea to celebrate.
    I wasn't able to post for tea this week as we were enroute for our vacation.

  11. Loved everything about your lovely table, but I especially enjoyed that calm and beautiful music while I was looking.

    Very nice, and thank you for the tea party link fun!!!!
