Christmas Tea Time

If you had a guest coming for tea, with the Christmas season upon us, how would you set your table?

I love the Red china.  It makes for a festive table any time of the year.








Come, sit a spell, and enjoy a cup of tea with me.


There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.  ~Henry James

Hello Jocelyn,
What a pretty table and I have to agree, the red is lovely for any time of year, but especially at Christmas time! LOVE your teapot and the mini cheesecakes look delectable! Thank you for coming to tea and have a beautiful day.

How can you possibly miss with red transferware for Christmas! I guess we love it because of the wonderful contrast and the reminder of all the red and white striped peppermint candy canes of our childhoods! I love you post! Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

Love the red transferware! So suitable for the cold winter months!

And those tiny little cakes... yum!

Your tea pot is a wonderfully original shape.

I think red china is PERFECT Christmas china -- if I had a brain years ago, I would have gotten red transferware to use for Christmas and Valentine's and 4th of July -- but I didn't and have dedicated Christmas China! (And blue transferware which isn't very Christmasy!)

Great pics.
