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!

    2. Hi Karen, I do not have a blog. I am just a reader of many. I do admire all the work you all do to keep the blogs updated.
