On Friday, seeing as though it was Valentines Day, I threw a little afternoon tea for my family.
I was a lucky girl and received some gorgeous roses from my husband (only the second time in 11 years) so they made the perfect centre piece. Everything else was just a bonus!
Some cute place mats , red spotty paper plates and serviettes (I bought them last week on sale for 50c , so I bought a stack for events, cyclones and camping) and little milk bottles with love heart straws (bought on clearance from Typo a while ago and I put them away).
They all combined to make a very cute afternoon tea!
The kids were so excited and could not wait to sit down for their special little treats but we waited until Dad got home and it was so nice to do as a family!!
I had made some yummy Orange cakes (using THIS recipe) in the Thermomix for a play date/morning tea that morning so we had some left. A cute cupcake wrapper and topper from a kit from Woolworths and they suited the day perfectly.
And every year I like to make a love heart cake for the kids as a special Valentines treat. This year was certainly no different and I went with a simple chocolate cake , with butter cream icing. Pink of course!! Some heart sprinkles, a few cake toppers and ta da!! Yummo!
We had some very happy and chatty kids on our hands!! It was so lovely to all sit down at the table and chat about our days. The conversations the kids have always seem to make me smile and laugh! Love
