WHIMSY JOINS ROMANCE AT THE VALENTINE TEA TABLE FOR "FRIENDS SHARING TEA"

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".



The little heart plates are also no longer produced.  If you see one sometime in an antique mall - grab it!










Today is "Friends Sharing Tea" here on my blog and other friends may join in below by linking to their blogs. I have always loved tea time and collecting seasonal tea items and decorations. 







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












PLEASE JOIN ME BY LINKING HERE IF YOU HAVE A TEA PARTY TABLE SETTING, SOMETHING TO SHARE ABOUT TEA OR ANYTHING ABOUT PLANS YOU HAVE FOR TEA......

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

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. :)

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!

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!

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.
