I love the fact that Tea Time can be all year long! It is snowing today in Colorado Springs and my thoughts turn to plans for my next tea event. I always have a tea around Valentines Day. These snowy days can be perfect opportunities for you to pull out your tea books and organize ideas for your menu, decorations, teapot selections and theme.
As most of you know, I have a store loaded with tea and tea accouterments. I have been so interested in tea for a very long time but as always, I tell people you don't have to have the finest of everything to begin! Start with what you have! Remember you can take a plain white teapot and do a lot with it by just buying wired ribbon in a few colors. I suggest red wired ribbon will work for both Christmas and upcoming VALENTINES DAY!
Some of your RED Christmas items can work for Valentines Day easily! Always have your eyes pealed at garage sales for possible further tea party decorum. I think in turns of Valentines, Easter/Spring, Fall and Christmas. You might also like St. Patrick's Day, etc.
If you have never given a Tea Party, start smaller and consider a tea buffet. This is so much easier and you will just be restocking the buffet, instead of serving at a table. Try to arrange your finger foods at levels by stacking your cake plates on top of one another!
Also, something CHOCOLATE is a MUST HAVE FOR A VALENTINE TEA!
