Last tea party of 2014

Image
I didn't post much of Christmas this year, but I hurried to put together a little tea party for the last Tuesday of the year.


I tried to keep it silver, gold, and white ...an arrangement used throughout the Christmas season, with the addition of a clock ornament.. Some mercury glass plates.. with silver Lenox napkin rings... Let us enjoy the last hours of the year, and look forward to 2015!


In Preparation....

It's a lovely, sunny day here in Manitoba...cold, but bright.
Yesterday was a very fun day as my daughter, daughter-in-law, granddaughter, and myself had an afternoon of baking...in preparation for the Christmas season.
The cookie cutters came out....
We had a good laugh when my mixer, which tends to start at a fast speed, created a mini snow storm on the counter! It all calmed down though, and peppermint fudge was well mixed...
Granddaughter did a fine job of decorating her sugar cookies... Our busy schedule didn't leave time to enjoy a cup of tea at the end of our baking marathon, but each went home with cookie tins filled with fudge, shortbread, sugar cookies, butterscotch squares, lemon snowballs, and pecan tassies. . For Tea Time Tuesday would you join me for a cup of tea with a chocolate truffle? We will use Lenox "holiday" china today.
