Tea Cup Tuesday-Festive Tea


Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!

 Martha and I would like to Thank you for your wonderful
presence here at Tea Cup Tuesday this year.

Each one of you who have visited us for tea,
have warmed our hearts and brightened our lives!
(and we have loved seeing all of your tea cups!)

THANK YOU!


Today I am setting the table for Christmas eve dinner. 
This holly berry china set was a surprise find at the local GW.
It is a simple stylish wintery pattern. 
The grey, silver and cream look just right with a touch of berry.



The next few days will be slower,
and filled with family.
The presents are wrapped,
The food is cooked, 
the cookies are baked,
The tea pot is on,
and tea will be ready soon.


English Breakfast tea will taste lovely with these cookies.


This china was created by Syracuse China Co, here in America. 
Originating in1871 in Geddes, New York. 


Now it is time to sit down (breathe a sigh of relief)
and enjoy a favorite family pastime.
Watching Christmas movies.
Yay!

Merry Christmas

Have a lovely week : )

Dearest Terri,

Those red baubles and bells make your beautiful dinner setting just glow with Christmas cheer. It all looks so very inviting! Your biscuits look so yummy I could almost reach in and take one to have with my morning cuppa. You've been such a busy girl!

Well I think you have done extremely well in creating all of this beauty and those gorgeous Christmas angel tags included - they look so so beautiful despite your recent energies being drawn to other things.

Wishing you a very blessed and peaceful time at Christmas and hope you do get to have a little rest as well.

Looking forward to a New Year here with you again to view more wonderful inspiration!

Warn hugs,
Suzy

Hi Terri, just stopping in to say hey and let you know I've linked up to enjoy your tea time tuesday. Your Christmas glass balls look so amazing set out in a dish, great idea. I'm a scrapbooker so your vintage altered tags caught my eye not once but twice, nice job. Have a joyous Christmas, Hugs Cindy

Hi Terri,
I have never seen that china pattern before. It really is elegant and looks lovely with the festive red Christmas balls. I am not quite as organized as you and unfortunately I may have to wait until Boxing Day to watch Christmas movies. Thank you for hosting with Martha today! Have a very Merry Christmas! Karen
