Christmas Tea

It's Tea Time Tuesday at Rose Chintz Cottage.


A Return to Lovliness at A Delightsome Life

Won't you join me for Christmas tea?

I have set a small table by the front window.  The scene outside doesn't look
much like Christmas or winter does it.  It's been very mild here.

I'm having a cup of pomegranate green tea and 2 ginger cookies with red
and green sprinkles on them for my afternoon tea break.

This cup and saucer is "yuletide" by Royal Albert.

The vintage enamel teapot has natural and artificial greenery in it,
therefore the tealight is one of the battery operated ones for safety.

Some of my favorite Christmas decorating magazines are nearby to peruse
while I enjoy my tea and cookies.

Our nativity ~ the focal point of Christmas.

Our Christmas tree is dressed in vintage ornaments, a few sparkly new ones,
some icicles and some crocheted snowflakes.

I hope you will visit the above hostesses for some wonderful teascapes.

Have a beautiful day.




  1. Hi lovely lady.
    I would love to have a cup of tea with you sweet lady. Your Christmas Tree is Gorgeous looks like you have it all together for the Holidays.
    Thanks so much for your sweet comments on my new Christmas at the park~~ Tablescape.

  2. Beautiful beautiful beautiful!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  3. I think it would be a lovely treat to sit by your window with a cup of tea and the glitter of the tree as a backdrop!

  4. Your tree picture turned out great!! Is the grass really still that green outside your window where you have your lovely tea table set up? Have a great week!

  5. Hi Pamela,

    Love your table by the window, at this time of the year I like to sit next to the windows as well, bird watching and waiting for it to snow!
    Your tree is beautiful...
    All the Best,

  6. Hi Pamela
    After the mild weather we had another dusting of snow but I doubt it will last long. It's been a long time since we had a green Christmas.
    Your Christmas tea is inviting and ginger cookies are my favourite.

  7. What a peaceful, quiet corner for a Christmas tea and reflection in the middle of all the rush! I love the greens in the enamelware coffeepot. Great teacup. Thanks so much for sharing! A sigh of peace...ahhh....

  8. Hello Pamela,
    What a lovely tea with such a pretty teacup, wonderful magazines, and a gorgeous floral arrangement in your enamel pot! I would love to sit and join you. A lovely and peaceful post; thank you! Wishing you a delightful week and a Happy Christmas season.

    Christmas blessings,

  9. I always enjoy your tea times by the window. So pretty, all of it. And I like your tree a lot--maybe because it reminds me of ours! As far as BHandG...it's interesting how it seems to have had a rebirth, catering more to younger women (or maybe i've just gotten older!) but I notice the decor is more contemporary or "mid century." I enjoyed the look into the vintage magazine ... I guess the 60s are now "vintage," eh? !!!

  10. Hello Pamela,
    you created a very cozy setting in front of the window. How nice to have a tea there and to enjoy to garden view. The whole setting is lovely and your tree is amazing.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  11. You've created a cozy tea corner for yourself. It's 55F here today. Unbelievable.

    Your tree is absolutely lovely! What a good job you've done decorating.

  12. Hi Pamela!
    So much fun going house, I mean blog, hopping and seeing how everyone celebrates and decorates for the season!
    I am loving December blogging.
    Wish I could come and have tea and discuss holiday magazine articles with YOU!

  13. Your house looks lovely and so very festive, my friend. I love your table by the window! Maybe you will have snow by Christmas, I love ours.
    Hugs, Cindy

  14. Hi Pamela, Our cream cheese comes in 8 oz pckgs. so I sometimes use the whole package depending on how much I make. And I think a stick of butter is 1/4 a pound! Hope that helps. I think the recipe is very forgiving and you might even be able to skip the butter.

  15. What a beautiful tea cup! I love your decorated enamel teapot too.

  16. What a beautiful post Pamela. Love the arrangement in the teapot. Love, love your tree - you will have to give us a tour of the ornaments. Diane

  17. Hello! What a lovely view to sit with you to enjoy a moment of Christmas tea! Lovely teacup, lovely floral arrangement and wonderful reading on hand - best of all is the company! Thank you for sharing with A Return to Loveliness,
    God Bless,

  18. Pam~ How crisp and pretty the red and white look....wonderful table, pretty tree! Happy Advent~
