Valentine Tea in Florida

Hello friends, will you be my Valentine and come to tea?  I've been saving some of my antique mall finds here in Florida for today.  I had so much fun dressing the tea table on my little privacy patio.








Help yourself to a cup of  "Love Spice" tea  from Hanna's Tea Times, (a black tea with cinnamon, cloves,almond flavor infused with orange), and sweets as I show you my treasures.




While I was out and about I found the teapot with the rhinestones at Ross.  I know my sweet Granddaughter will love it!






The pink rose teacup was a find for only $5.00.  Its made in Germany.  Love the sweet roses!






The dessert dishes were four for $3.00.  I couldn't resist that deal!  The tulips and sweets are from the local grocery store.  The sandwich bread is Pepperidge Farm swirl strawberry banana.  I filled it with strawberry cream cheese.  So yummy and a treat for me as our grocery store back home doesn't carry this bread.








Thank you so much for joining me for Tea today!  Now that we had our tea  its time for my hubby Valentine to have tea with me.  Wishing you a wonderful, happy Valentines Day!

I'll be joining these lovely parties this week:  Teacup Tuesday, Teatime Tuesday, Friends Sharing Tea, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, Cottage Style, A Return to Loveliness, Share Your Cup Thursday, Simple and Sweet Fridays, Home Sweet Home, Show and Tell Friday, Feathered Nest Fridays, and Pink Saturday.

Oh, a teapot with bling! My granddaughters would like it too Nancy. You've been finding some neat treasures and Pepperidge Farm bread seems to be non-existent here too. I emailed them and they replied I should be able to find it in stores.

Hi Nancy,
your table looks lovely. Your finds are all wonderful. The tea pot with rhinestones is so sparling. I can imagine that your granddaughter will feel like a princess with it. And the German tea cup is so pretty and so is the dessert plate. Its very old, I guess. The roses are beautiful. Thank you for this romantic tea time. I really enjoyed my visit. And thank you for your visit and the sweet comment on my blog.
Best greetings, Johanna

Dear Nancy,
What a great find in your teacup. It is so pretty and only $5. A steal. I am glad it went to a good home where it will be appreciated.
That bread with the strawberry cream cheese looks so pretty. Will have to use that idea.
Happy Valentine's week and thanks for your pretty post.

Dear Nancy,
Happy Valentines Day! You are so lucky to be able to set your tea party up outside. What a beautiful day to invite me to a warmer climate. I can almost feel the warm breeze.

Wow, love the teapot! I would have never thought of bling on a teapot but it works for this one. My granddaughters would love it too, it is perfect for the fairy or princess tea party.

You put together a very nice tea party on vacation for a very good price. I love this. Happy Valentine's Day to you.
