Christmas Tea for The Girls in the Family

One of my nieces hosts an annual Christmas "tea" for the young girls in our family.

She does such a very beautiful job.

The "tea" is actually hot chocolate. I opt for half hot chocolate and half coffee in a big Christmas mug, topped with whipped cream! 

Colored sugar is sprinkled on top, too. Yum!

The tea table looks like something out of a decorating magazine and includes Santa wrappers for the silverware! How adorable is that?

The snacks are delightful.  This year, Ritz crackers dipped in melted Andes mints taste absolutely luscious.

They are a combination of sweet and salty!

My niece hosts the party in her Mom's (one of my sisters) homes. 

She always decorates her home quite beautifully for the holidays.

I couldn't wait to share some of the photos of the Christmas tea, with my sister's okay.

Will share more photos of the decor in her house in another post, too, so, if interested,stay tuned!

What a lovely post. I like your idea of sprinkling coloured sugar over the whipped cream and hot chocolate/coffee. I'm sure everyone enjoyed their tea party. What fun!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Looks like fun! I love the festive flair and how you treat yourselves during the holidays!

I'll have some cocoa with Bailey's! ;-D

What a lovely get together! I haven't hosted or gone to a Christmas tea but maybe next year I'll host one! Love all the yummy goodies. Now I want a hot chocolate/coffee drink! Hugs!

That was beautiful and I think that I will go make a hot chocolate with coffee and whipped cream right now - that looked so good.

I have gone to some parties and teas - but i have to tell you - the one you went too - looked pretty good!

Love, sandie

Oh boy those photos made me wish I were there to share all that fun. I love real tea anytime but have never hosted a tea party. So happy you all got to see the decorations and enjoy each other's company.

What a lovely Christmas tea party, Susan. All the goodies look scrumptious, and those Ritz crackers coated with Andes mints, oh my. Can you believe I'm munching on an Andes mint right now with my coffee? They are soooo good. Your niece's table is very nice, and those Santas are adorable.

Enjoy the weekend before Christmas, Susan.

love, ~Sheri

by the way, I've never had hot chocolate and coffee together, is it tasty? ~Sheri


Festive and sweet. Scrumptious cookies too. Just had the opportunity to meet a half a dozen ladies who do exactly what you mentioned... mix coffee and hot chocolate for a tasty drink. Never had heard of it before.

The Christmas Tea looks so fun and inviting. The table to set with festive flair with delicious looking goodies. So fun!

The Christmas Tea table is dielightful! How I would have loved to attend. Sadly, the only local Tea Room here closed about 2 years ago. They used to host a lovely Christmas Tea and had carolers walking about from room to room singing! It was beautiful and I really miss it...
