Happy, Happy Pink Saturday!

This is a very special Pink Saturday for me. I get to show you lovely gifts I received from two equally lovely ladies.

A few days ago, I received a package from DONNA at PARTY WISHES. She hosted a giveaway and she drew my comment to win! What did I win? A tea party for one!




My tea party included this gorgeous teacup set embellished with pink roses and trimmed in a raspberry pink and gold and chocolate chip scone mix...


a 'flower' filled with "Poinset-Tea" and a bag of pastel sugars.



I baked the scones (delicious!) and brewed a cup of tea...dropped in a pretty pink sugar heart and enjoyed my very own tea party!

My thanks to you, Donna, for your generous and beautiful gift!



The "just because" gift I received yesterday is from CLAUDIE at TICKLED PINK. What could be in this cute little gift bag?!


Well, first, let me show you this
adorable Parisian-flavored card.

...and just look at the inside of it! Claudie, were you playing fashion designer with my card?

In that cute pink bag with the green bow was this...


A box of Pink Champagne Truffles!!
I just cannot tell you how excited I was to see these. All I could do was let out a squeal of delight! They are a light pink - the picture is a little off.



...and look what Claudie sent for me to wipe the pink-colored cocoa from my sweetened lips...a set of hankerchiefs with my initial on them.
I haven't eaten one of the truffles yet. I'll have one with a glass of wine or champagne, a good book and some alone time.

I think probably the only thing sweeter than these pink truffles will be, is my sweet Claudie. Thank you and I love you girl!



HAPPY PINK SATURDAY TO YOU ALL!

What wonderful gifts! I love the tea cup set and I love the sugar heart at the bottom of the cup. Did you make that?
Enjoyed your post...

The tea cup is lovely & my mouth is watering for those truffles...enjoy!

Mary said...

.........and to think you truly enjoyed your tea just for one as everything was so very pretty - lovely gifts from your friends.

Bob and I always stop for afternoon tea, and when he's not here I do it alone anyway, taking my cup and saucer into the bedroom where I sit on the loveseat by the window and enjoy the birds and squirrels. Such a relaxing time and a much needed break in the busy days we always seem to make for ourselves.

Lovely post Deborah - bundle up and have a warm weekend in the house!!

Hugs - Mary (ACROSS THE POND)

Hello Deborah, I just didn't get to very many Pinkies yesterday. We went to the Biltmore AGAIN, with company. My other daughter and my grands are here to go skiing. My cousin Bob from MI. too. Boy, I have been busy.

I love all of your wonderful pink gifts. You are a lucky girl. Donna's tea party gifts are lovely. I know you enjoyed your own little tea party. I would have loved it. And to top it off Claudie's gift. I really wanted to win that. Smile. since I didn't, I am very happy you won. The best part it is all in pink. You had fun with your pink post didn't you? LOL.

Love you, Jeanne
