Oh there were lots of delightful tastes of Valentine's teas this week! On Tuesday Emily hosted her second annual Valentine Tea with the same group of ladies from last year. Each made valentines according to her particular creative bent --- everyone's was different and amazing! It is such a treat to receive them and we all oohed and aahed over the ideas everyone had!
The place settings looked so festive and inviting with the pile of valentines waiting.
We had delicious food: chocolate fondue, cheeses, scones, and candy. We drank Arabian Night tea, Diamond Jubilee Tea, and Peach Tea.
As I mentioned, my kids were kind of on their own this year for making valentines. I pretty much had given up hope of them making them for their siblings, but they did not disappoint. They came through just in time with some pretty creative ideas, like this Lord of the Rings card! ha ha ha!!!
Upon returning home from Bible study on Thursday I was greeted by two sets of signs:
Michael and I were informed that we must go on a treasure hunt to find our valentines! The treasure hunt even included rhymed clues!
And enjoy a few cookies, chocolates, and strawberries.
And now I am satisfied that my kids will be able, in their future homes, to pull off a valentine's celebration! It certainly made our day!
