Tea Station

This is my little holiday "Tea Station."  Step right up and make yourself a cup of something delicious.

I wanted to remind you about the limited edition collection of holiday teas by Celestial Seasonings.  With names like "Nutcracker Sweet" (my favorite and it's caffeinated!), "Gingerbread Spice" and "Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride" - how can you resist?

When my friends stop by, they almost always chose one of these special holiday teas, even though I have "the basics" on hand too.  I think the idea of having something that is available only at the holidays adds to the appeal.

Can you see that the top of the table matches the wallpaper?  I took a scrap of extra wallpaper and covered it with contact paper and then cut it to size.  I now have the perfect (and temporary) touch to set off my cream and red accessories.

When I found this plaid tea tray, I knew that it would look pretty with my Comptoir de Famille cream & sugar and a row of Gingerbread Cookie Boxes.  My next project is to make a batch of gingerbread spoons!

I need to set up one of these - great idea! I remember your post about the teas and haven't tried them. I will look this weekend. Thanks for the reminder!

Thanks, Elaine. I think people love to see it all in one place. A tea party ready at a moments notice!

Great idea! I like hot tea and recently started drinking more coffee too.
I found some Christmas Coffee at TJ MAXX, it was so good. It taste just like Chocolate!! It is almost gone and of course I cant find it again so I bought Starbucks Verona and it is pretty good too.It has a chocolate taste. Just thought I would share :)

Great, LillyB. It is fun to have a "holiday specific" drink on hand. And I LOVE TJMaxx. :-)
