Valentine’s Day Tea

6heartsGRASONVILLE, MD – Sunday night – One of my favorite holidays has always been Valentine’s Day. When I was a child we always celebrated Valentine’s Day with a family party.

For some reason that no one remembers, our Mom, Aleene always bought us our bathing suits for the summer season (now that was because we grew up in California and the season starts earlier than here on the East Coast). Anyhow, we always created handmade Valentine’s, made a mailbox and had those candy hearts with the sayings on them.

So, of course to keep up with our annual tradition, we decided to have an early Valentines  tea party at the shop yesterday! Tea parties are also a passion for the Creativity Sisters so it makes sense to put the two together. Heidi and I decorated the shop (Tiffany was in her office busy doing her computer stuff), bought yummy desserts from the bakery and brewed up pots of tea to serve our guests.

The fun craft for the day was handmade Valentines. We had a table full of doilies, hearts of every shape and hue, vintage postcards, ribbons, rubber stamps, stickers, etc. Everyone gathered up their supplies and created the most wonderful Valentines. Everyone was so creative and the Valentines were so beautiful. There is nothing as wonderful as a handmade Valentine made with love. The ladies all had a great time crafting, drinking tea, eating cookies and sharing the fun and laughter of creating.

Wouldn’t it be fun to celebrate every holiday with some good friends, make some handmade gifts and eat yummy food! Yes! We shall do this!    Candace
