While visions of sugar plums danced in their heads
This week's tea is extra sweet--as is my confections tree which is the inspiration for this tea. This tree is set up in the breakfast nook area of my kitchen in my big picture window. My kitchen has a sweets theme, down to the snowflake shaped candies hanging in the windows on either side of the tree.
Candies, cookies, cupcakes, and other goodies cover the tree, with a large star-like snowflake cookie serving as the tree topper. Here are a few of my favorite ornaments:
(A gingerbread girl and boy in teacups! Just perfect.)
Anyone for a cup of tea?
My Christmas Sweets teapot matches Santa's candy cane striped coat and sleigh! Today's teacup is the classic Christmas tree pattern by Spode.
I have the perfect tea to serve in the Christmas Sweets teapot--Celestial Seasonings Gingerbread Spice!
(See one of my stuffed Gingerbread men looking on? He definitely approves!)
I have a hard time walking past stuffed gingerbread men (and women) during this time of year...they are so addicting! I'll share a picture of some of the rest of my gingerbread decorations later this week.
I thought spiced cookies would be a perfect match to a spiced tea. These cookies are pebbernodders, with all sorts of spices mixed in. I made these for a holiday party at work and I'll share the recipe later this week.
Here is one more picture of the tree, before I say goodnight:
The children were nestled, all snug in their beds,
which sounds like a good idea to me! Goodnight!
I'm joining these tea parties this week:
