Valentine’s Day Tea Party -The Dessert Table

Valentine's Day Tea Party 047

We had an amazing time at our Mother Daughter Valentine’s Day Tea Party on the weekend. Yesterday I shared the decor and craft and some of the food here. Today, it’s time for dessert!

I created this fun pink and red dessert table on the dinning room buffet.

This is the first time I went to the trouble of creating a backdrop for the dessert table. It was inexpensive and definitely adds a whole lot of fancy to the occasion.

I used a combination of pink, white and red streamers, and hung them from a ribbon. I love how it turned out. I also made a “Happy Valentine’s Day” banner from the Happy Heart free Valentine’s Day pintables I found at Catch My Party. They are so cute.

The little girls were adorable about the dessert table, plotting their dessert choices while the moms finished up their sandwiches.

For dessert there was some chocolate chip shortbread, since every tea party needs a little shortbread in my opinion. My girls and I also made some simple marshmallow pops, with valentine sprinkles. We anchored them in glasses of smarties -what I call a win-win.

I printed the pretty food labels from the Happy Heart free printable collection.

I also made some individual raspberry trifles -see my recipe here. I love how sweet they look in little juice glasses, with a silver tea spoon.

I also made some simple brownies and topped them with some heart shaped sprinkles -so easy, so yummy!

We also enjoyed these beautiful cupcakes from one of my favourite places -Cupcakes Canada.

They sent us their Valentine’s Day cupcakes. There was a half dozen box of 3 Vanilla (you know that’s my favourite right?) and 3 chocolate.

They looked so pretty with hearts, pink butter cream, silver balls and glitter in their pink bakery box! Did you know there was glitter for cupcakes?

They were a huge hit with the little girls -and the big girls.

Imagine ordering these for your child’s class -can you say super Mom!

We also had their special Valentine’s Day dozen. These are a great variety pack that include 3 Chocolate Raspberry, 3 Strawberries and Cream, 3 Double Dutch Chocolate, and 3 Red Velvet -all dressed up for Valentine’s Day. Wouldn’t these be lovely for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day?

They were so beautiful, fresh and delicious. Have a look at their website for all the details, pricing and menu. Thanks Cupcakes Canada they were delicious!

I wanted to make a little take-home favour for the girls to remember our tea party, so I sewed each little girl a set of sweet felt cookies, and tea bag from felt, see the instructions here. I love how sweet they looked on their plates in these little dollar store take-out boxes. The thank you tag is also from the Happy Hearts free printable collection.

We had a really fun time together, and even the moms didn’t seem to want to leave. That night, after my happy little girls were tucked into bed, I went back downstairs for an extra little treat.

A glittering vanilla cupcake and hot cup of tea just for me.
