Valentines or Galentines?
What is Galentine’s?
Galentines is on Monday, February 13th. It is the day when we celebrate the close friends in our life, who add so much. I must admit that I would be lost without my friends. They inspire me, lift my spirits when I am down and always make me smile.
Wanting to host a Galentine’s or Valentine’s Tea?
Overwhelm can be real when wanting to entertain friends. Not sure how to go about it?
Have any questions? Feel free to email or message me.
My top tips:
1. Decide on how many people you wish to invite. Even numbers are best. You can invite just one person if you want.
2. Pick a date, plan on a two hour time frame.
3. Decide on food and tea. I like to serve 2 types of tea at the minimum, a black tea and a tea with minimal or no caffeine. I like to use teas that speak to the mood of Valentine’s Day. Chocolate and rose flavors work well.
My tea suggestions for Galentines or Valentines are:
Rose’s Cherry Cloche – A green tea with cherry and rose flavors. This tea was selected by Tea Time Magazine for their Spring Tea. The rose essence lifts the mood. Green tea increases the metabolism, brain function and may reduce blood sugar levels. Plus, it tastes good!
Chocolate Mint is our newest tea and only one with chocolate. We all know that chocolate increases good feelings and mint helps with digestion, mood and energy levels. Plus, this chocolate treat is calorie free!
Food wise, you don’t have to make everything! People often drive themselves crazy trying to do it all . You can buy scones and sweets at a local bakery.
I made the plant based scones at the top from my special recipe that I came up with in 2020. The ingredients include pecans, white chocolate and strawberries. I used a heart shaped cookie cutter to make a few scones in the shape of a heart.
If you would like the recipe, let me know and l will send to you. The plate is Spode Camellia, a family piece.
Here is another cute idea…strawberry tea sandwiches.
Only 3 ingredients and so pretty!
These are from My Casual Party
Hope these ideas inspire you. Valentines is always a fun time to celebrate as a party in February lifts the spirits. This January has been especially gray in Kentucky, so I will do whatever I can to lift the mood here.
Lots of love,
