Christmas Traditions - Tea Parties

One Christmas tradition I've created for my girls is to hold a special tea party during their holiday break--sometimes inviting ten or more people to join us. Last year, we decided to take our tea party on the road. We traveled to my grandma's house and held it there. 

As always, we made a few goodies to enjoy with our tea. Russian Tea Cakes, Snowballs, Peppermint Meringues, Cheeseball and Crackers, Bacon-wrapped Lil Smokies, and Tortilla Pinwheels. And for our tea-- Apricot Brandy (loose leaf). Yum.

For our entertainment, we played a few games of Christmas Bingo, and then my daughters sang a few songs with their guitars. Good food, good company, and good entertainment. An enjoyable afternoon. We're planning to hold another tea party at Grandma's this year. I can hardly wait!  

I hope each of you will make time this Christmas season to share with family or friends. Create memories and enjoy the moments.
