Valentine's Tea '14

I am having a romantic tea this week in the spirit of Valentine's Day.  I am serving green tea with some gluten free blueberry banana muffins.  Kind of conservative I know, this is the way I splurge! 

My sweet little teacup is Limoges.

My shabby chic teapot is a vintage unmarked teapot I found in an  antique shop awhile back.

My gluten free heart shaped muffins are a real treat but not too sweet.  I will share the recipe tomorrow.  I got this gorgeous silver plated tray at the thrift store a few weeks ago for only $8!  I was so excited.  I had planned to use it for Valentine's Day.

Are you planning a sweet treat this week?  Do something nice for yourself, someone stuck in the house due to this bitter cold winter, or best of all someone you dearly love!

This is a gorgeous tea setting, Sherry, and I am loving your teapot! What a sweet find! Limoges teacups are always lovely too. Thank you for sharing at my Hearts and Flowers Tea. Happy Valentine's Day to you and all those you love!

What a gorgeous teapot which appears French. How fortunate you are in finding the teapot at an antique shop. Your heart shape muffins look delicious. I am now eating gluten free rice pasta and cooking it in chicken broth. I will return tomorrow to checkout your recipe! Have a great 14th!


Amy at Ms. Toody Goo Shoes said...

Looking forward to your scone recipe. I don't need to be gluten free, but I do think it's a good idea to eat less wheat, so I'm trying!

Deborah Montgomery said...

I love your pretty tea cup. Would love to have some Limoges. Beautiful roses, too.

The teapot is really lovely - a reminder of gentler times!

I hope that the second time will be lucky, as my first comment prompted a notice of 'conflicting edits'. I just wanted to say that the teapot is lovely, and a reminder of gentler times.

This is truly lovely... Great job with putting the romance into tea time!

Hello Sherry, I am hoping to get a few photos of some tea settings as I can arrange a few props, wish you could come help me, now wouldn't that be fun?
I am really excited about my new sterling silver teapot, I just received as a gift from my Hubby.
An early Valentine's gift. Hope you are having a lovely, and peaceful day!
Always, Roxy

Sherry, I love your teapot. So pretty! Your sweet teacup matches so well! I shared my tea treats with hubby for a early Valentine's celebration.

Gina @ VictorianWannaBe said...

Oh my goodness Sherry, that teapot is totally gorgeous! Love the elegant shape it has, kind of reminds me of a pumpkin, so it would be a perfect teapot for a Cinderella tea. :)
Have a lovely Valentine's Day!

All very pretty~ I love the teapot!

Hi Sherry,
Love your romantic Valentine’s Tea. The patterns are so pretty and such lovely colors. One of those sweet heart muffins sure would taste good right about now, a bedtime treat.

Happy Valentine’s Day,

I gasped at that teapot- it is stunning, absolutely romantic and beautiful!
