Decorating for Christmas, Birthday Celebrations and Tea Time





Season's Greetings Dear Tea Friends!

Are you busy decorating for Christmas?


The Teacup Christmas tree is up and there is a touch of Christmas throughout the house.







I love mint green at Christmas Time because it blends so nicely with my pink decorations.





This Stanley teacup is Made in England....  I have five trios in this pattern.  Perfect for a small tea party.  





The Sadler teapot is a treasured piece.




And some other Sadler treasured teapots.


I have started adding a Christmas touch throughout the house...

In the dining room


A little pink tree,


And A Christmas Village.



In the kitchen, Royal Albert's Poinsettia china on the tea wagon,


And Yuletide China on the kitchen sideboard.



Some Christmas china on the kitchen windowsill (notice the snow outside).

Do you put lights everywhere too?


A few Christmas Teddy Bears on the stove.



I must clear away our tea time because it's time to prepare for two December birthdays:



 My daughter's 23rd Birthday on December 8th and hubby's 61st on December 13th.  



The dinner table is now set with Royal Albert's American Beauty, pink,  for my dear daughter's birthday tonight.


Do you have December birthdays to celebrate too?





Have a Wonderful Weekend!


Karen

Welcome December!


Welcome Sweet Tea Friends!
and
Welcome December!


I am really enjoying decorating the cottage this December.


I just changed the Friendly Village China on the sideboard and shelf to my red/pink transferware.


I also added some lights above the kitchen cabinets to make it look Christmas-ish!


I also hung some Christmas balls from the chandelier.


(Hubby thinks I'm a bit crazy but he's being a good sport! Lol!)


It is rainy and cold and quite dreary outside but I am finding happiness decorating. 😊 


Hubby found the Bavarian teacup trio recently at an Estate Sale.


Even Mr. Cottage appreciates pink roses and aqua tones.


The china has an irredescent/ pearl like finish.


It was so dirty when we found it but after washing carefully it just shone!


There's a pretty pink rose in the center of the teacup and on the rim of the saucer and plate.







Are you enjoying decorating for the festive season ahead?




Thank you for stopping by today!


See you next time!
Karen
