Tea for Two

For Valentine's Day this year I am going to make a pretty little Tea for Two. 

Red Velvet cupcakes, mini custard slices, teeny sausage rolls and "WASGOEDBONDELTJIES" (translates to "laundry bundles - a square of pastry with a savoury filling, the corners of the pastry are then folded to the centre of the "pie" and secured with a whole clove - like an envelope).

The tea table will be adorned with a simple fuschia pink square linen cloth, and a 50cm x 50cm granny square overlay made with Stylecraft Classique Cotton DK.

I love the mix of pinks and purples with the pop of yellow in between.

I made a few GRANNY HEARTS which I intend to use to decorate a very plain white three tier cake stand.

The hearts are very easy to make and are a fun way to use up scraps from bigger projects.    The Poppy, Shell Pink, Mauve and Shrimp heart is my favourite!

What colour combinations would you choose to make the hearts?


  1. Aww they are really cute! I would probably use yellow, blue and red for a heart :-)

  2. I absolutely love the granny square overlay cloth. Do you have a pattern for that one?
    The hearts are very pretty too!

  3. Beautiful blanket and hearts love the colours.
