Cupid IJll11d oldcd. Anotllcr form of inviting guests
is to use Cupid post cards , then enclose in envelopes
and send through the mail. Hearts in all designs ,
some blceding with a dart's pierce , winged , hitched
. to Cupid's cap of roses with blue ribbons.
The menu , printed on rose colored ribbon , makes
a dainty souvenir of the feast. The lettering can be
done at home by outlining with pencil , then going

table. From this a linked chain of rosebuds and
pink hearts , winding in and out of the pink and
while china , ends at the extreme end of the table in
a bow and ends of pink satin ribbon.

was molded in hearts , by the ca-
terers. They were wrappcd in
paraffine paper and then tied with
pink ribbons in dainty rose and
silver paper. Each was passed on

was given when unwrapped.
At a house furnishing sLore ,
heart sandwich or cooky cutters
can be purchased for ten or fifteen -
teen cents , and they will be found
almost indispensable where tlu
hostess entertains frequently.
A bottle of violet and red vegetable -

cakes and icings. A sheet of
