Seasonal Sunday

Earlier this week I wrote a post about Milk and Cookies. Several people commented on the pretty Christmas dishes that were pictured. So I thought I would share what happened to those dishes.

A sweet lady friend was in an accident and was laid up right before Christmas. After having a back injury myself a year ago, I knew the only thing that this gal would be able to do was #1 read, #2 watch a DVD, or #3 listen to music.

So with that in mind, my daughter and I made up a Tea Party in a Basket. We baked fresh scones, prepared a plate of cookies, I found a perfect Tea book, and added a DVD and CD into the basket. Along with the pretty Christmas dishes.

Tea, Hot cider and Hot chocolate mix to round out the goodies.

It's not a fun way to spend the week before Christmas, but hopefully the Tea Party in a Basket brought a little pleasure during an unpleasant time.

May this Seasonal Sunday be the beginning of a wonderful New Year!
