Tablescape Thursday

Hello Dear Ones and welcome again to another Tablescape Thursday hosted by our Queen Diva of Tablescapes Susan at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/. If you'll go see our Susan, you will get to see more dishaholics and what we love to do! Play with our dishes!

Now I just had to post one more Valentine table for you. The table is laden with a white tablecloth and a pretty white crocheted round doily in the center. This is a little Valentine tea table for the girls. Just Mother, a couple of friends and me! No men were allowed at this table. ;)

Here you see my little Battenburg lace napkin is tied up with a pretty red ribbon. I also added a sparkly little heart. The heart of rock and roll is still beatin'! ;)
Now I picked up four of these little red dessert plates, I think at Marshalls just for this little tea. See the pretty little raised floral design. I think I love these red plates! Can you love red plates? Do I need to answer that? ;)
You know you cannot have a tea without teacups so I'm using my very olden J & G Meakin from England cups and the pattern is called "Classic White". I do think they're very sweet with the little rufflies going round the saucher and bottom of the cup! Oh, our Miss Janice will be upset with me, I didn't put the spoon on the saucer! Oops!
The tea service pieces...amid little glass sparkly thingys, little pink shaped kisses and little red hearts. We girls must always have a little bling!

This pretty white tea pot is doing the honors today of holding the hot tea! I spiffed up the tea pot just a bit with ribbon. I love my ribbons! Can you love ribbons? Well, you bet your wired bows you can! ;)
Precious little sugar and creamer...
I'm not really sure what this little pitcher is used for, but it goes with the tea set and I just think it's the prettiest little thing!
You know it's always nice to have some flowers - real or faux - doesn't matter to me! You know how I love my faux flowers - red carnations today.
Inside the crystal vase I poured in these little floral marbles that will serve the same purpose as a floral frog. I'm sure there's a real name to these, but I call mine floral marbles. I seem to make up my own names for a number of things. don't I?
Helping the faux florals out as part of the centerpiece is one of my little cloches with girly froo froo under it. Another small crystal vase filled with rose petals (faux, of course!) and olden girly girl Valentines topped off with more red wired ribbon! Don't you love wired ribbon? I know you do!
A closer peek at the sweet little girly Valentine resting in the rose petals.

Chocolate hearts are a must for a Valentine tea and they look so pretty in my "Classis Whites".
We're really just having tea, cookies and sweet conversation. Would you like a cookie?




Oden Valentines for your enjoyment.
Hope you've enjoyed my little sweet tea party today. It would not have been the same if you'd not come!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun


I come home in the morning light
My mother says when you gonna live your life right

Oh mother dear were not the fortunate ones

And girls they want to have fun

Oh girls just want to have fun
The phone rings in the middle of the night

My father yells what you gonna do with your life

Oh daddy dear you know you're still number one
But girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have--

That's all they really want

Some fun

When the working day is done
Girls-- they want to have fun

Oh girls just want to have fun

Some boys take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest of the world
I want to be the one to walk in the sun

Oh girls they want to have fun

Oh girls just want to have
That's all they really want

Some fun

When the working day is done
Girls--they want to have fun

Oh girls just want to have fun,

They want to have fun,

They want to have fun...
