Evening Tea

It was a cup of decaf Earl Grey as it is evening and caffeine would have me up all night.  I served it in a white and gold gilt bone china tea cup by Sutherland HM.  I added a bit of honey and some milk. I love the scallop texture in this cup and saucer set.

I had a Gala Apple cut into slices, a few pieces of white old cheddar cheese and a couple Peek Freans Cranberry Citrus oat crunch cookies.  I served them a Johnson Brothers Regency White dessert plate.

I chose red green gold plaid place mats on a red table cloth with a herringbone pattern.

I set up a table center piece with a white house background from IKEA. I placed some Christmas red berry foliage, a large pine cone and a mercury glass tree on a Christmas plate on a gold charger plate.

  1. I love your Christmas tea for one, Sylvia. We need to take time for ourselves and enjoy.
    Merry Christmas!

  2. Dear Sylvia:
    This is a wonderful cup and saucer and so perfectly chosen for Christmas. Your snack looks very healthy. I say that after eating too many cookies! Ha! Thanks for sharing and linking.

  3. Sylvia, how lovely! The beautiful cup and saucer as well as the delightful snack plate. You mentioned the caffeine in the evening. I don't know why, but the caffeine in tea doesn't bother me in the slightest, but caffeine in coffee at any time of the day wrecks me.

  4. I love Earl Grey tea myself...and have found drinking tea at night does keep me up! Beautiful up and saucer and I always drink my tea in a special cup since it makes me feel good. Wishing you and your family a happy and blessed Christmas
