Santa Claus is Coming to Town!

The swag on the steps going upstairs sets the scene in the hallway. It's one of the first things that captures your attention when you enter the tea room. Festive bows, gold poinsettia, pinecone clusters and glittery red touches are sprinkled throughout the swag, with 8 or more drapes going to the second floor (a private area).

Tucked on the oak side by side is this little Santa scene which features an ornamental Santa Claus tea pot and a colorful hand embroidered tea pot that says 'Santa's Pot of Tea'. A gift from a long time family friend, the embroidery was lovingly stitched by Jerry Reid in 2005.

The culinary Santa collection also graces the hallway, the variety of jolly old elves feature gingerbread baking and tea. They were gifted to me over the years from my sisters and far away friends.

And another Santa collection is tucked away on one of the top shelves in the tea room, smiling at the tea room guests. You better be nice, Santa Claus is coming to town!
