second annual christmas tea

Shannon and I hosted our second annual Christmas Tea Party and it was a blast! We chose a red, white & pink theme and it turned out great. We started with champagne and then went through a traditional 4 course tea and ended with coffee. There was an accompanying treat for each course. We had cucumber sandwiches, chai cookies, smoked salmon bites, and so much more!

We always share stories during the tea of favorite Christmas memories, traditions, highlights from the year, and anticipation for the year to come. After the tea we have a jewelry exchange and play a "white elephant" style game. It's the perfect way to collect a new piece to wear for the holidays.

Even baby Haffner was able to join the party =)

The Christmas Tea Party has become a special part of the holidays for me and I am thankful for the women in my life with whom I share these special memories!
