…holiday tea – tea cups

Last year I threw a Christmas party for some of my dear mom-friends and their hubbies. It was a wonderful celebration. I got so carried away with the decorating that I went all out and it landed in Romantic Homes Magazine (coming out this month). This year I decided to do something a bit different, a bit more my style – a tea party.

I must give the credit to my client, Alisa, who told me all about her annual holiday tea. What a marvelous idea! I love tea! I love tea cups! I love my girlfriends!

I started with tea cups.

For me, everything centered around the tea cups. I wanted every tea cup to be delicate and vintage. I shopped antique stores around my area to no avail. I quickly turned to Etsy for help. Etsy is always a great resource when shopping vintage & antique.

My tea cups, saucers, creamers and dessert plates came from sellers Canada, England and Pennsylvania. Most, if not all, were made in England.

I didn’t mind investing in my tea cups because I would like this holiday tea to become a tradition. I also promised my girls that they could throw their own tea party once I was finished this year.

 

…favorite things friday: romantic homes magazine

I threw a Christmas party for my dear, neighborhood mommy-friends and their husbands last year. I got so carried away with decorating that it kinda took on a life of it’s own and before I knew it it landed in Romantic Homes Magazine (a big thank you to Charlotte for her styling & writing.)

The magazine is coming out this month, but I did get a sneak preview.

RomanticHomes

At first it didn’t look like my home because I had not seen it so decorated since last Christmas. I normally don’t go crazy decorating for the holidays because I enjoy keeping out my favorite things all year round. But, transforming the house once a year can be a treat.

This year I will be hosting a little neighborhood tea. Excited to show you!

PS – Not sure what the cover of Romantic Homes looks like yet, but when I do I’ll let you know so you can look for it at your bookstore.
