Valentine’s Day really does just make me smile! It’s the first bit of brightness and celebration after an often long and dreary January—what a breath of fresh air! This day is celebrated in many ways other than romance. Some families have delightful Valentine’s traditions, and now, “Galantine” celebrations seem to be the thing to do!
Which honestly, makes so much sense, doesn’t it? Chocolate, flowers, lots of red and pink, and all your best girlfriends—how perfect! Friends are truly a gift, and we should never give up on setting time aside to enjoy each other’s company. Talking, laughing, and eating with your best girlfriends is just good for the heart!
In the latest issue of TeaTime magazine, there is a feature on the most elegant and festive “Galantine’s Tea” you have ever seen. One look at the gorgeous colors and wonderful treats, and I just knew I wanted to share this with you!
I absolutely love the subtle addition of blue into this tablescape. In no way does it take away from the obvious Valentine’s theme, but it simply adds a little more elevation to this gorgeous spread! And each dainty treat looks incredibly delicious. Oh, and the Strawberry & Champagne Mousse Tartlets are just the beginning! All seven of the recipes featured are just the thing for a Galantine’s tea, or any Valentine’s celebration for that matter!
All recipes are found in the January/February 2019 issue, available by clicking below!
