Deck the Halls!

 With a series of afternoon tea events scheduled throughout the month of December, the tea room is decorated early. The table top tea themed tree is once again in the back room with a variety of tea pot ornaments. Novelty snowmen teapots are tucked underneath the tree. The beautiful creche set that Susanna made for our mother many years ago is always placed on the mantle. It held the place of honor in our family home for many years, and now graces the mantle in the tea room.

 The charm of this little tea themed tree is best enjoyed when you are standing directly in front of it! But here are a few of the ornaments that are hanging from the branches. The miniature Santa tea cup brings a smile to everyone. The Spode teapot is festive on the tree and the two colorful teapots are actually button covers that have been added to the tree. The newest ornament in the collection is this replica of a Downton Abbey afternoon tea tray, a thoughtful gift from JP (thanks!).

In the main hallway, the holiday swag hangs from the stairwell and is decked with golden poinsettias, gold pine cone clusters, with hints of shiny red ornaments and colorful red and green bows, and little twinkle lights. It is so festive! The culinary Santa collection is also on display in the main entryway.

The middle room holds the second table top Christmas tree which carries the golden poinsettia theme found on the stairwell swag.

Additional little holiday touches are tucked on the shelves here and there including an assortment of cookbooks, A Cup of Christmas Tea story, and decorative poinsettias round out the decor on the shelves. Let the holiday celebrations begin.

I'm barely over Thanksgiving but feeling quite inspired by your festive Christmas display! (Maybe I need to know visitors are coming soon to get with it!)
