We had a family Christmas tea this afternoon.
The kids love having tea. They picked a holiday blend from B&N.
I decorated the table with candles and festive little plates and our Lenox serving pieces that I am slowly collecting. They thought it was real fancy.
We had cheese and crackers, apple slices, baby carrots, Pepperidge Farm Gingerbread people (cuz we haven’t baked any holiday cookies yet and they are adorable), homemade toffee, almond clusters, and peppermints.
We listened to symphonic Christmas carols.
I read from Holly Hobbie’s Christmas book.
This book was mine when I was just a wee lass. I love her. I have a couple dolls still too.
As my kids get older, we still love tea time with poetry and music. It’s fun to have themes and even dress up. Decorating the table scape is fun for my kids. We all have favorite teas and we have different cups and teapots and pretty little dishes.
