"Life is a journey, and love is what makes that journey worthwhile."
A warm welcome my dear friends. Today's tea is in celebration of Valentines Day so do come in and make yourselves at home. The table is set and the tea is just about ready.
"Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it." ~ The Bible - The Song of Solomon
The world is a rose; smell it and pass it on to your friends.~ Persian Proverb
Today I have my tea table set with an assortment of china patterns. As much as I adore soft pastels, I decided to do a mainly red and white theme today.
I have chosen a red table cloth with a lace one over it.
The hearts teacup is serving as a plate stand for my melt in your mouth cookies.
I'm using my Cream Lace teapot today. This pattern is by Skye McGhie which you've seen before. I think this teapot is so romantic with its Fleur de lis and lacy edged rim.
The creamer is also Cream Lace.
Sugar cubes are in a heart shaped candy dish to add a bit of whimsy.
Hershey's Kisses fill the tiered stand.... Hmm, I see there are a few missing!
Bake a chocolate cake in a tube pan and split it into three layers when cooled. Fill between each layer with whipped topping and cherry pie filling. Makes a lovely dessert.
"The daintiness and yet elegance of a china teacup focuses one to be gentle, to think warmly and to feel close." ~ Carol and Malcolm Cohen
Happiness is sharing tea with a friend.
A Valentine card for you....
"If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give." ~ George MacDonald
I hope you are showered with lovely sentiments, flowers, chocolates, and Love this Valentines Day. And remember to treat your sweetie like a king!
