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.....





The teapot below is bone china ....






I love the little "faux" sweets....




















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.....

Today is Tea Time Tuesday with Sandi where you may visit others who participate in this day!

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.
