A Valentine Fantasy
This is an encore presentation of my
Valentine's Day fantasy...
What could be nicer than a
Valentine's Day tea for two?
Maybe a romantic dinner with a nice wine?
How about a late night dessert of strawberries dipped in chocolate... and a glass or two of champagne?
How about all three?!

Tea for Two
This fine bone china is Old Country Roses,
made in England by Royal Albert.
It was passed down to me by my mother.
I have quite a few pieces and will share more another time.
Tea is served at 4 o'clock.
This clock is 24k gold plated and it was
given to me by my mother forty plus years ago.
My sweetheart and me.
He is 6'3"... I am not.
We have be happily married for 32 years.
We are blessed and appreciate that...
because it is the second marriage for both of us.
We met on a blind date!
These are faux candies.
The are very good for any diet plan...
because they are 100% calorie free ;)
These pretty little sugar cubes are also faux.
This large table doily was also my mother's
and is also very old... older than me!
The napkins are actually pretty little hankies
that I just opened for today's tablescape.
They were also my mothers.
Did you enjoy your tea? ~ ~ ~
Dinner will be served... at 8 o'clock.
Oh My... dinner is starting a few minutes late.
We will have some nice wine served in
my old Princess House stemware.
I've used long taper candles for a romantic feel.
The wine will also help with that.
The dinner plates are from TJMaxx.
You've seen them here many times.
I love the detailed edges.
The flatware has real gold detailing.
It was fairly inexpensive,
but still feels good in the hand.
These little lead crystal candle holders
have a real gold band on them...
and were found at Goodwill!
The china also is trimmed with real gold.
There we are again...
Do you see us peeking out between
the salt and pepper shakers?
We are very lucky to have each other!
Time sure has passed quickly!
It's 10:35 and I'm ready for dessert!
We have a nice bubbly champagne!
These are the old fashioned champagne glasses, not the fluted ones that are so popular today.
I just can't resist lovely plump strawberries dipped in decadent milk chocolate... how about you?
Or do you prefer dark chocolate?
I will place the fresh strawberries in the little oblong dish, and the chocolate in the precious little swan...
just the right size for dipping the tip of the berry!
