This is my last tea party of the year, and I've entitled it Tea for Quiet Times. I've had two chances in the past few days to sit with a friend, in front of a fire (be it real or electric), and relax. Quiet conversations and tea. Heaven! This quiet time prepares me for the busy Christmas visiting ahead.
With Sweetcakes, I enjoyed the best-ever chai and the most amazing gingerbread cookies. See the adorable gingerbread reindeer (and recipe) here.
Today, I enjoyed lunch and tea with a friend in my home. It was a dreary day, but those are perfect for tea. The weather was sleeting and windy, and I brought out my cheeriest tablecloth. Time slipped by quickly and I am grateful for the peaceful time with friends!
Happy Holidays to you! I be back to blogging in a few days. Wishing you joyful and peaceful times.
