Christmas Tea is a little different than the other teas Mary Ann and I host during the year........
daughters are invited, we exchange gifts, we provide the food for our guests rather than potluck, and we do something for our community......
This year we collected food for our local food bank.
Mary Ann and I take turns hosting the Christmas Tea....this year it was Mary Ann's turn to host and she out did herself!
She has a lovely collection of vintage tree toppers!
A few of us got together the day before to set the tables..way more fun to set tables with girlfriends!
Mary Ann made favors for our guests. She used vintage spools and put Christmas Trees on top. They were all a little different and each lady was able to pick whichever one she wanted.
For Christmas Tea our luncheon is a sit down meal....so much easier with a large crowd.
Maria made the salad, Mary Ann made a chicken dish that was served over rice, and I made the desserts....a brownie topped with a strawberry, and individual cheesecakes. Maria had a great Christmas Tree shaped cupcake holder that we used to display the desserts
I know our friends love coming to tea, and Mary Ann and I love hosting!!
Next up Valentine's Day Tea!!!
