Tea Table in Purples, Polka-Dots & Lavender

Tea is delightful in any combination of colors, but purple,polka-dots, and lavender florals bring a lot of cheer to this Valentines Tea.  You can see the red and pink floral fans that were given us party favors. I have treasured a collection of Tea plates and antique glass for many years.  I love sharing all of these with my dear friends. I love the look of a crocheted lace doily beneath the floral plate and atop the Depression Era Candlewick glass charger.

Polka-dots are so fun!  I sewed the bows by taking a length of 44" fabric, and ripping it in half length wise,  then ripping those pieces in half again lengthwise.  I then sewed them into a rectangle, allowing a space within the fabric toward the middle to pull the fabric through, and then turning them inside out, ironing them, and tying them in this manor.  I attached them from beneath with large safety pins.

We always rent white padded chairs for the entry-way and living room tables so the look has continuity and doesn't distract from the decorated tables.

This spinach salad with warm bacon dressing was to die for!  I have asked my friend Patty to share it with me so that I may share it with you.  Look for it in an upcoming blog post!
