Valentine Tea and Roses


I hope you are planning on having a lovely Valentine's Day.

Lately it seems the world has been moving much too quickly so I thought we might
just sit and enjoy a lovely cup of tea together.
Since Valentine's Day is known to be a day of roses...


I thought I would gather some of my rose teacups...


And, I have made a delightful pot of tea.


But because you are so special, I thought you might enjoy using my sweetheart teapot...


Which cup would you like to use?  The choice is yours...






This one happens to be my favorite and I would be honored if you would like to
use it today...


Do you take sugar and cream?




I also have some hand dipped chocolates and cupcakes for us to enjoy...after all,
it is the day of sweets!








There may even be a few hearts scattered about...


Valentine's Day really is a pretty day, isn't it?












Now, I want to hear all about you and what you have been doing lately.


HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY

So lovely! We had hoped to host a tea party for Valentine's day but the time got away (again)). Maybe a March Hare party? The photos are a great inspiration!
Happy Valentine's Day!

Susan this looks so wonderful! I would love to have the first cup please, the one with the sprays of roses. Just cream for me since I'll be getting sugar from your wonderful treats. I'm going to be greedy and take a cupcake and a piece of chocolate please. I feel relaxed already....lol.

Happy Valentine's Day Susan!

Valentine's Day comes right at the perfect time of year - just when we all need a jolt of pink and red, sweet and pretty.
I'd like to use the cup with the tiny rosebuds please.

Merci for the invitation, dear Susan. I would like to have your favorite tea cup, no creme but sugar please, and chocolate cookies! :)

And I love your 'hearted' tea pot!

I know I arrived late for the tea party, but I have enjoyed it immensely. Always a delight to stop here for a visit and admire all the pretties as well as your welcoming hospitality. Having such a weakness for beautiful tea cups and sweets, your gorgeous Valentine post suits me to a "T".
