A Valentine's Tea Party

Welcome sweet friends to my Valentine's Tea party! I am so glad that you came to visit today on your way to see Susan at Between Naps on the Porch and Laurie at Bargain hunting and chatting with Laurie. I will be popping over to their Tablecsape Thursday and Share the Love parties soon....but first, please take a seat and stay for a cup of tea!

I hope you can stay for more than 5 minutes today as I have some tea and biscuits ready for you. I've set the table for 6.

Perhaps you would like to sit here. I hope you like the Duchess bone china from England.

Or would you prefer to sit here and use this lovely vintage Royal Doulton China?

I just got these lovely pieces from dear hubby for my birthday last year. They are Royal Winton and the pattern is called "Welbeck"-I would be most honoured if you were the first to use them.

I have used the matching plate to serve some biscuits. Would you care for one?

I have some Earl Grey shortbread and some coconut macaroons.

I have made some loose leaf black tea but I also have some Fortnum and Mason teabags. The Queen Anne blend is very refreshing!

  I might sit here-I just love my Spode Blue Italian china! 
Would anyone else like some sugar with their tea?

Do you like my vintage Irish linen? It looks quite fresh with the Grosvenor Silver I think.

Please let me know if I can get you some more tea or another biscuit. What do you think of those Earl Grey biscuits? They were made with organic darjeeling tea.

It looks so pretty on that white and silver Royal Albert "Chantilly" plate.

Before you leave I'd love to show you my new cloche! I have been wanting one for ages so I can attend a cloche party at Marty's place. I finally found one!

I thought I would display some vintage china since we are having a tea party.
