Kari's Valentine Tea Party!

Here are the Valentine Tea Party pictures I promised! I am still on cloud nine since yesterday! Kari out~did herself once more in hosting another one of her beautiful tea parties. She puts such love into every detail and makes her guests feel so welcomed and loved.
She is one true sweetheart!
Thank you Kari...xox
Enjoy the delights of the party! CLICK each picture to enlarge for detail!

Kari, sweet, sweet Kari!
Greetings begin at the front gate.
Silk rose petals everywhere!
My heart always skips a beat when I enter!
Each place setting is lovingly set.

I love how she made the napkin look like a vase with a rose in each one! Clever!

The gift tree!

I made her a little garland as a hostess gift.

The "Menu" to die for!
You "must" :) click to see this menu! Oh my heart be still!
Look how pretty the water looks. She also had a beautiful assortment of herbal teas.
Heart shaped ice cubes!
Sweet suckers to stir your herbal tea with!
The food was displayed beautifully and tasted so delightful!

Yes, even a red velvet cake!
Thank you Kari for opening up your beautiful home and heart!
A day to remember forever...xox
Happy Valentine's Day to all!

How sweet! You are so blessed to be able to have such a sweet friend! Every thing looks so lovely! Maryjane, I thought about you tonight. My husband and I was watching Texas Country Reporter. They showed Sisters On The Fly from Grapevine Texas.Their little trailers were so wonderful to look at. I loved what they all had to say about the friendship that they all shared. I excitedly told my husband...."remember the pretty crocheted dishcloths from Maryjane? She has a cute little trailer and takes off like these ladies do! LOL. By the way, your dishcloths are still just as pretty as the first day I got them. Have a happy Valentines Day! blessings,Kathleen
