A Sparkly Christmas Tea

Sandi is hosting a lovely Christmas tea today.That girl comes up with the greatest tea party themes!
I’ve set the table with mercury glass plates (from Z Gallerie) and candleholders, and my Mom’s silver teapot.

The glass mugs are from Mikasa…we love to use them every day.

Placemats were made by my sister-in-law.
I haven’t had time to bake in time for tea tonight, so I guess it’ll be fruitcake to accompany our snack. Oh, well!

Millie, that is just gorgeous! I love the silver and the sparkle of it all. And fruitcake would be lovely with a cup of tea in those pretty mugs.

A beautiful tablescape and I specially love the mercury plates with the glass mugs. Your mother's teapot is lovely too, as everything else is. Happy Holidays.

Millie, my friend, your tea is so elegant! I love your teapot and the pheasant as well as all the mercury glass. Your table is stunning and magical as well! The glass mugs are perfect for this time of year. I am so pleased you could join me for my Christmas tea. A cup of tea and a piece of your fruit cake would be a treat. I would love to join you at your pretty table. Thanks for sharing.

Christmas blessings,
Sandi

Linking up from Sandy :)

Love the glassware... but my eye spied a particular handsome silver teapot in the photo. Stunning! Saw an exact one in an antique shop yesterday that I've coveting :)

Merry Christmas!
