Valentine’s Day Tea Party XOXO

Welcome to our Valentine's Day Tea Party!  Would you care for a cup of violet tea and a mace shortbread cookie?

“Welcome to our Valentine’s Day Tea Party! I’ve poured you a cup of violet tea.  I hope you like  mace shortbread cookies.”

We baked the cookies yesterday.

“Yesterday we baked cookies all day long.”

These are my very favorite cookies!

“These are my very favorite cookies! They smell so good.  Would you write the recipe down for me?”

Ruthie, do you have time for another cup of tea before you have to return to Brooklyn?

“Ruthie, do you have time for another cup of tea before you have to return to Brooklyn?”

If I hurry!

“If I hurry!”

"Let's pose for a family portrait while we are all together, so that we'll always be able to remember how much we enjoyed having tea and spending time together today!"

“Let’s pose for a family portrait while we are all together, so that we’ll always be able to remember  today!”

"One more!  Everybody smile and say TEA!"

“One more! Everyone smile and say TEA!”… Three little sisters join their elders in wishing you a very happy Valentine’s Day.

"Now that we've eaten and taken photos, let's make make Valentine presents."

“Now that we’ve eaten and taken photos, let’s make make Valentine presents.”

"My heart is in your hand."

“My heart is in your hand.”

"I'll keep it on my desk so that I can see it every day and think of you."

“I’ll keep it on my desk so that I can see it every day and think of you.”

"One more cup of tea?"

“One last cup of tea?”

Thank you for coming!  We hope you had fun.

  1. What a sweet tea party! The dolls are so charming in their finery. And thank you for the mace shortbread recipe too!
    hugs,
    Teresa

  2. Thank you, Paula for letting us be a part of your tea party! One of my favorite parts of the day is finding out what your dollies are up to 🙂 Little Ruthie has insisted I copy down your shortbread recipe – it was a real hit!

    love,
    Paula C. and Ruthie

  3. Paula C.,
    Ruthie did love the shortbread! She had 4 cookies 🙂 I tried to send some home with her, but she swore that she’d already over indulged for one day and had to watch her waistline, or her petticoat wouldn’t button! Now you can make them together at home and Henry will be there to help you eat them! The girls do make life interesting and keep me busy, I never know what they will decide to do next!

    Hugs to both of you,
    Paula

  4. How absolutely adorable! I found you via your Pinterest site and I love vintage dolls and dollhouses too! I’d like to invite you to visit The Tearoom and say “Hello”!

    Wishing you a lovely day,

    Betty
