We have a group of friends that met at a Fitness center, and even though some have left, we continue to meet monthly for lunches. We started off at restaurants, six years ago, but our group is so large, that we have them in peoples' homes in order to mingle and visit. Everyone brings something, and we celebrate the birthdays of the month. I volunteered to have a Valentine Tea/Birthday party at my house. Helpers buy the paper products, cups and utensils, and stay to help with clean up.
My dining table has two leaves, and I could seat 14 here. I set my mixture of teacups at every setting.
This table for 8 was set in my kitchen. I used a pink, cozy throw for my table covering. The pretty strawberry mat under the teapot arrangement was handmade by a sweet friend.
This table for 6 was set up in my family room on a folding table that my daughter brought over for me, along with 11 chairs. Another friend brought 6 more chairs over. I bought the flowers at Trader Joe's and arranged them in teapots.
This was our dessert table. The chocolate crepes were divine, and filled with a creamy vanilla filling. We had chicken salad croissants, pimento and egg salad finger sandwiches, ham salad, and so many wonderful dishes. With 28 people attending, you can imagine the array of good food!!
I am sharing this with these lovely parties:
