teatime with friends

It's time for Tea Time Tuesday at Sandi's blog Rose Chintz Cottage.

I mentioned last week that I was having a couple of friends over for afternoon tea last Friday.  We had a wonderful visit and enjoyed tea and cookies and lots of talk getting caught up on our families, Christmas and decorating.

These Christmas plaid dishes came from Sears several years ago.
The cups and saucers and the dinner plates are a burgundy plaid and white,
while the soup bowls and bread plates have a dark green band around a white center.
They are all edged in gold.

The paper napkins have Christmas teacups on them.

This cream and sugar set is vintage and the white table runner is very old
with a pretty crocheted edge.

That morning I baked 2 kinds of cookies and squares. Yummy.

I enjoy setting my table for tea time with friends at anytime.

I hope you will join Sandi for Tea Time Tuesday




  1. I love a tea. This looks delightful! The plaid dishes are beautiful! And from Sears? Who knew!

  2. I love plaid at Christmas! And that vintage runner is so sweet! What a nice event for your friends!

  3. I saw that china long ago and I didn't get it. I'm so glad to see the plaids on your lovely table. Pretty runner too. The cookies look yummy! Hugs, FABBY

  4. Pamela
    I love tea parties. Your table is set beautifully for the holidays.
    Our church tea is Sat. I've got a lot of baking to do!

  5. These are the Christmas moments that bring the season all together and make it "feel" like the special time that it is. I am certain that your friends enjoyed being pampered this way. Your decorating all looks so lovely. I just bought the slimmer tree that you spoke of in your last post. (My old tree was also about 25 years old and losing its needles after all this time. I still prefer it. It was a superior tree and the new one doesn't hold a candle to the old one. Oh well, it IS slim.)

    Your snow is all gone? Wow. We got about 12 inches last Wednesday. It's leaving fast. I'm so surprised by these temps in the 50sF.

  6. I can't think of anything nice than a Christmas tea with friends. Your table is lovely.

  7. Hello Pamela,
    I can't help, I always felt that the Scottish plaid pattern is perfect for Christmas. And now you confirm my opinion. And it looks marvellous with your sugar/creamer set. All is really inviting and looks delicious. Thank you for sharing this delight.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  10. Lovely Christmas tea. I was wrapping gifts this morning with plaid paper! ESP!!! :D :D Happy Tea Day!

  11. Plaid is a Christmas memory, I used a plaid on Christmas cards I made this year they turned out lovely. Your table looks very inviting and welcoming for a Christmas Tea right down to the vintage cream and sugar. It is increadable how you girls can get baking done and time to blog at the same time,lol. Great setting and spirit

  12. Hi Pamela
    Your tea table looks lovely, I like plaid too and remember that pattern from Sears. You made some yummy treats for your friends and I'm sure they had a great time with you.

  13. Hi Pamela,

  14. Love your plaid dishes. Sweet napkins with the teacups on them, and your runner is gorgeous!

  15. Pamela, your Christmas decor is very pretty and so is your tea table setting.
    I usually bake many cookies for Christmas but I am not doing so this year as I am trying to lose some weight for my daughter's Spring time wedding. I don't want any temptations to sample a cookie ot two. :)

  16. Oh Pamela...
