Valentine's Tea Party

"The best and most beautiful
things in the world cannot be
seen or even touched. They 
must be felt with the heart."
                    ~Helen Keller

   Yesterday I had a little Valentine's Tea! I have been planning it for a little while - something to look forward to because I have been under the weather for so long. I made decorations and invitations and planned the goodies we would have. It was so much fun! I found these lovely Rachel Ashwell paper lanterns in pretty floral patterns to decorate with. The goodies are from three of my favourite French bakeries and they were sooooooooo delicious! We also made little salmon and egg salad sandwiches (just so you don't think it was entirely composed of sweets and treats!). I made the "Love" banner and the pink flower garlands hanging from the chandelier. We exchanged pretty little gifts - the handmade ribbon hearts and Marie Antoinette card are a couple things I made as presents. I called the party a "Tea party" but we actually drank pink ginger ale :). I thought it was just perfect and I loved every minute of it! Happy Valentine's Day!

I am sharing with:
