Christmas High Tea Party

I was some how lucky enough to fall into a group of 10 women who like to get together and have tea every few months. Within this group there are neighbors, sisters, friends, and co-workers. Sometimes one of the group will host or sometimes we will visit a tea house. The most recent gathering was for a Christmas high tea at one of the homes. It was fabulous! Our tea hostess happens to be a fellow Stampin Up demonstrator and she incorporated some Stampin Up products in her theming of a white, silvery Christmas.

Photos of this awesome tea do not do justice to the real life experience, but I tried to capture the beauty and elegance anyway!

I brought a little something to give to the ladies along with their Christmas cards



Stockings for each of us!



Tucked inside each stocking inside was a tea bag, teaspoon, and a piece of chocolate


I am blessed to have these women as friends!
