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, 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
You can see more of Kari's Tea Parties on my sidebar. Click the picture, it will take you there.

EASY Cinnamon Pull~Apart Bread!

This is a EASY way to make Cinnamon Pull~Apart Bread with Rhodes frozen rolls and it tastes heavenly! My daughters make it and I thought I would give it a try! 
Hubby gave his big stamp of approval!
Here goes!
Spray pan. Add 12-18 Rhodes frozen rolls.
Add: 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and 3/4 tsp. cinnamon. Mix & sprinkle over frozen rolls.
I added a handful of chopped nuts~optional.
Let rise.
Bake for approx. 20 minutes.
As soon as it is out of the oven, turn upside down on a plate. 
For frosting mix together:
4 cups powdered sugar, 1 stick of butter, 1 tsp. vanilla & enough milk to desired consistency. 
**You can half this because you will have some left over for the next batch! Just freeze it!
Drizzle (pour!) over top while still warm.
Yes, I used a little to much...heehee!
You can pull it apart or cut with a knife.
Soooo good!
