Time for Tea

This afternoon, we are having some friends over for afternoon tea. My friend and I will sit in the livingroom with our tea, but I thought I would set a more fancy table for the girls and their friend. And Benjamin, of course! :0) Paper doilies make anything fancy!! They will be drinking hot chocolate and munching on Gingersnaps, Coconut Macaroons and Red Pear slices.

Once they are all full of sugar they will be making the Scrappy Fabric Ornaments that I shared last week. :0)

As always everything you do looks so attractive. Enjoy your truffle making party - and take a large all-enveloping apron. They are delicious but very messy things to make:)

You seem to make every day special Kelli! Your blog is always a joy to visit..
When my daughter was teaching preschool, she would have an annual teddy bear tea. The children truly loved it and looked forward to it.
Yours sounds like such fun!

Your house is decorated beautifully, and I don't just mean the Christmas decorations - whenever you show a photo, I have a good goggle around the edges of the photo to look at your furniture, walls,carpets or whatever, and everything is beautifully chosen and coordinated. I wish I could learn to do stuff like that....
