Decorated sugar cookies are a part of every holiday at Linderhof. And although we painted Valentine cookies on Saturday, we still also made traditional sugar cookie hearts.
This year decorated simply with red and white sanding sugar.
A whole platter of them -- some to much while we painted cookies and others available for tea the few days before the 14th.
And on Sunday, friend Joyce came by with a Valentine for me -- and my Valentine for her, a cup of tea and a cookie (or two) while we enjoyed the warmth and sun of a later winter afternoon.
The shadows played on the table -- creating a shadowy tablescape. Some of the cookies will be packed in cello bags and delivered to friends at the bank and post office on Valentine's Day.
Valentine's is not just for lovers -- it's for friends as well! I learned that in Grade School when we made and delivered Valentine's to everyone in the class! The best part was making my post office box!
There is nothing better than heart cookies and tea and a friend to share it with for a Valentine's Afternoon.
