Our Valentine's Day tea

 The dining room table all set for our Valentine's tea. Heart-shaped sandwiches, homemade cakes, fresh fruit and lots of pink and roses. The little tea pot is filled with orange juice. Emma called it a 'juice pot' when I poured her drink up.

 The cake was made and decorated in a bit of a hurry, but it tasted delicious. A heart-shaped Victoria sponge sandwiched with raspberry jam and buttercream, topped with white chocolate (coloured pink) and decorated in a hurry!

 I couldn't resist these pretty paper napkins when I saw them in Sainsbury's last week. I knew they would be perfect for our Valentine's tea.

 The Podlings had great fun decorating the fairy cakes. We had to make note of which ones Emma decorated as her approach seemed to be to ice a cake, decorate it, eat the icing and then decorate it some more!

 Tea time!

Tom looking sweet. After tea he looked rather more 'full of sweets' in that he was clearly on a bit of a sugar high!
