Princess Jill's Valentine's Tea

February 15th, 2003

Princess Jill Schaffer treated 22 of us to a spectacular Valentine’s Tea in her lovely home.   Everything was decorated in a Victorian style St. Valentine’s theme, with garland swags gathered together with sparkling hearts draping the stairway, and many Victorian Valentine cards scattered throughout the rooms, up the staircase and on the mantle.   Scented candles cast a warm glow in every room.   Ivy was hanging under kitchen cabinets with tiny heart shaped red lights, and there was a beautiful swag over the family room door with hearts and fairy lights.  


Tiny hearts were scattered on the tables, which  were set with red heart napkins and individually decorated sugar cubes for our tea, as well as baskets of heart shaped chocolates. 


The food!!!   To die for lavender and plain scones with Devonshire Cream, strawberry jam, and lemon curd; Yummy fruit salads; tasty broccoli salad; dainty, delectable tea sandwiches filled with chicken salad or a veggie mix; heart-shaped cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches.   Dessert included hand dipped chocolate strawberries, cream puffs, chocolate truffles, chocolate brownies, and a mouth watering raspberry cake and many other treats.


There were door prizes for some lucky ladies, and party favors of a lavender sachet and pouch of Valentine candy and a candle for each guest, decorated with ribbon and valentine and tea-themed charms.


Princess Jill outdid herself.   She had been planning this for a year.   Every detail was extremely well thought out.   Thank you Princess Jill!  Her husband, Tom, and daughter, Christine, helped with everything that day, and a special thanks goes to them also...
