Another Tea Party!

My dear friend Kari gave another one of her beautiful Valentine Tea Parties! I am always thrilled to be invited. She is gracious, loving and a joy to be around.
This year she bought some darling heart~shaped teacups & saucers of different colors, so with that she ran with it!
***I used the "antique" effect to my photos. The photos remind me of the 50~60's when fancy parties were the norm! Memories!
Kari's beautiful home. 
Place settings...
My sweet table...pink, how did she know?
A little garland I made Kari a couple years ago.
The food...oh my! We each brought a goodie.
A few close ups...
Kari served herbal teas of all kinds and refreshing water with berries & lemons.
I loved stirring my tea with a cinnamon heart sucker! Flavored the tea perfectly...heaven.
She gave us each these darling heart measuring spoons. Each has a saying on them: "a dash of kindness, a pinch of bliss, a spoonful of devotion & a heap of perfection".
We also exchanged a handmade Valentine card. I forgot to take a picture on mine!
Thank you sweet Kari for another rememberable day. xo
P.S.
You can see more of Kari's Tea Parties on my sidebar. Click the picture, it will take you there.

I had to go back and look at this 3 times. I am in Awe. I feel like it was the kind of tea party Marie Antoinette would through. WOW
The house
The decorations
those adorable heart shaped tea cups.
the food.
It must have been a wonderful event.
Ok, now I have to go back and look at it AGAIN.

What a beautiful and gracious friend you have in Kari. I am going to send my daughter to your blog. She is getting married in June and so many of the ideas would be so pretty for her wedding!

Beautiful post and I'm happy you have such love and true friendship to surround you at this beautiful tea. What a delight Maryjane.

In kindness,

What a beautiful spread! Just delightful. I love the heart shaped trios, they look to be from the 50's/60's? Love the beautiful room that the party was held in. Here in Australia no-one goes to such trouble for Valentine's Day and any celebration is usually amongst the young.... I've never received a card or gift for Valentine's and I have known my husband since 1980 and been married for 29 years! LOL

Lynn said...

I came over from SugarPie Farmhouse. I love your site! Love all the Valentine's Day goodies! Thanks for sharing the beauty and inspiration and, did I mention the goodies? :)

June said...

Kari is a wonderful hostess with a gorgeous home. Thanks so much for sharing this darling tea party!
hugs from me...

Katmom said...

Oh how sweet,,,I luv that she choose mix/matched servings, and coordinating napkin rings,,, right down to the matching 'candy hearts' at each setting....
The 'yummies' looked delightful too!

Wow you must sure be on her Honor list to be invited as a very important friend. .

I would of loved to be the sweet bee buzzing around to have a ear for the conversation and I could settle in a flower and when any crumbs of goodies fell to the floor. Dive down and get some.

Love your blog.

I will come back to have a look again and comment.

Chris said...
