"They were seated around a table, drinking tea and talking of love."
The origins of St Valentine's Day was associated with the Christian bishop, Valentine, who was
martyred on 14th February 271 AD, or it may be traced to the old Roman feast, Lupercalia. Many a
courtship began in the tea parlor, when a love-struck hostess invited her sweetheart to tea.
Few occasions are more delightful than a lovingly arranged tea for two.
Here are a few ideas for your "Tea for Two"
* Place a heart shaped note on your sweet hearts pillow in the morning inviting them to tea later
in the day. *Hire a babysitter if needed.
* Prepare the menu in advance so you will be able to give them your undivided attention.
* Set the table with your best linens, china and silver. Place flowers in a crystal vase or a
single bloom in a crystal bowl.
* Light a fire in the fireplace.
* Play their favorite mood music!
* Light candles or replace the light bulb with a pink bulb to cast a soft glow.
* Dress in a favorite outfit and don't forget the perfume!
* Serve a romantic afternoon or high tea. Enjoy!
