I set the table in my dining room, which is also home to my carousel tree (cue different view of the room!).
My Christmas china is Royal Albert's Christmas Tree.
Because this was a bit last minute, I just cooked up some scones I had in the freezer (the Christmas scones I shared last month) and some left over salted toffee, butterscotch, and milk chocolate cookies from New Year's. This is my new Royal Doulton Christmas figurine--The First Noel, from the Songs of Christmas series.
I served two different teas. The Downton Christmas tea from my "On this Winter's night" post in my Lenox teapot, and Celestial Seasonings Cranberry Vanilla Wonderland tea in my Old Country Roses pot (which of course goes with my OCR Christmas china!). Both teas were hits.
The Cranberry Vanilla Wonderland tea is a rooibos tea with cranberry, vanilla flavors, hibiscus, cinnamon, roasted chicory, orange peel, chamomile, juniper berries, and stevia extract! With the stevia it is already sweet, but I still added more sweetner. I bought this tea after Christmas last year and saved it--and I'm glad too, since the new Celestial Seasonings box designs aren't as pretty.
Here is one last view of my dining room so you can better see the tree, and my tea cart hiding between the windows. Okay, I lied when I said that I was done sharing Christmas trees. This tree has a carousel theme.
I'm linking to these parties:
