Valentine’s Day Decor Ideas

It’s important to set the stage for any festive event, and a Valentine’s Day tea is no exception. When your guests walk in to a decorated space, they’ll know you care about their tea party experience.

Perfect Valentine’s Day Table Setting Ideas

Your Valentine tea party table settings can be elegant, simple, and pretty with these ideas.

First Course: Tea Sandwiches and Savory Foods

First course for any tea party are tea sandwiches and savory foods. Here are some excellent, festive choices.

These festive heart shaped mini finger sandwiches are just the ticket for your Valentine’s Day tea party.

Savory and heart shaped, these mini pizzas are just as much fun to make as to eat!

Second Course: Scones with Jam and Cream

Second course in a proper tea party is always scones, jam, and cream.

No tea party would be complete without scones. These dark chocolate strawberry scones with Strawberry drizzle are the perfect Galentine’s Day tea addition!

Don’t forget to offer up some traditional clotted cream to go with your scones. Here are a few of my favorite clotted cream recipes – one recipe can even be done in the microwave to save time. Or you can always buy pre-made clotted cream if you’re short of time.

The final course of any tea party is always the sweet treats. At Valentine’s Day, there is no shortage of choices!

Nothing says “tea party elegance” like these gorgeous heart shaped Linzer cookies.

Red velvet sugar cookies? Yes please! Perfect with a hot cup of tea.

These decadent red velvet truffles are simple to make but look super fancy! They really conquer that sweet craving too!

Valentine’s Day Tea Games

Don’t forget to offer some Valentine’s Day activities to your tea party guests. This set of printable games from Etsy is both Valentine AND tea party themed!

Print out a set for each guest and provide a festively colored red pen. It can be fun to have some Valentine themed prizes for winners as well.
