Christmas to a tea!
Tea is always a good idea but never more so than Christmastime as temperatures drop and friends visit with cookies and other confections.
Do not fret if you are without Christmas themed china, red or green patterned porcelains will lend a holiday feel.
Even if you haven't much spare time for decorating, you can add a few small touches to make your home more festive such as silk flower arrangements,
poinsettias on the porch,
or using the red transferware tea service just for you:).
Sit back, relax, and enjoy a cup of tea with friends or with a good book in the quietude of your Holiday home.
