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
ovcr with liquid aluminuln.
A dainty taLle decQration is made of a rose heart ;
the dart of yellow buds is placed on one end of the
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.
Another dainty decorative conceit is to have a silver -
ver loving eup ( a tin one will answer every purpose )
filled with roses and huds. Around the base red
hc.1rt boxes attached to pink and silver ribbons
which extend to the cover are placed , and each can-
tains-solne souvenir.
So many dainty things are made of tissue crepe
paper , that inexpensive mementos can be formed
at home. There is nothing more appreciable to
women guests than heart sachets made of delicate
rose paper , tied with silver gauze ribbon and filled
with violet powder ; they are dainty and appropriate.
Never use anything but violet sachet unless the preferred -
ferred perfume of each individual is Imown. Nearly
every woman admires violet , so one is safe in this

Ule ell ecr.
At a lunchcon given last February -
ruary , the strawber y ice cream
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
a plate , and a g nuine surprise
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 -
etable coloring kept in the house
" will help to add dainty effects to
cakes and icings. A sheet of
cake , white hatter cut into hearts
and dipped ill rose colored icing ,
flavored with either rose , peach ,
almond or vanilla , has dainty
flowers designed on top with tiny
deep red , silver and green pellets.
