[Valentine, Coffee, Tea or ...]
Valentine's Day is a day to espress love and
happiness. Think of all the people you love, and all who make you happy.
There are many ways to celebrate the day, whether it be breakfast, lunch, tea or dinner.
Let's start with a Valentine Tea or Coffee. I like to invite female friends in my neighborhood to an afternoon tea.
It's a ladies day out with all the frills.
The place setting: DYI placemats made from petals make a vibrant feminine background for the antique pressed glass plates. The plates have a lacy feel. The dessert plate is Royal Albert, Old English Rose fine bone china.
The center piece is a series of antique crystal cruets with sweetheart roses. The cruets sit directly on a alencon lace table cloth adding to the feminine theme. Tea lights set in aperitif glasses makes the crystal glisten.
For a special coffee, purchase some rainbow sparking sugar (Wilton on Amazon). Add cream to the coffee. When you add the sugar, it melts in pretty colors.
Happy Valentine's Day!
