A Lovely Winter’s Tea Party

DSC_0023

A Winter tea party is my theme for January. What better way to get through this long Winter month, than with a hot cup of tea? My dining room is the best spot in the house. Newly redone, it looks like it could be a tea room.

Not everything was put away for Christmas. I kept out items that are cheery and wintery, like these white trees. I have some of them propped on white stands and under glass cloches. Anything to brighten up the dark Winter months. The creams and whites work perfectly to symbolize Winter!

I folded my pink napkins to resemble roses and tucked them here and there. I like the contrast and warmth the pink gives to the cream and white tones.

I love to use elements of nature in my designs, like birds for example. My bird decor is found all around the room. One example is here perched on a post. It fits in beautifully next to the stacked tea cups and saucers.

This small white bird is perched on my lantern. I love how it’s fun and whimsical!

I left the small white birds, crystal snowflakes and these crystals hanging from branches on my chandelier. They were all perfect for my Christmas design. All these items make my chandelier look very wintery.

I arranged these creamy white hydrangeas in a tureen on my buffet. I wanted them to look like they are spilling out of the tureen.

  1. This is gorgeous! How fun! I’d love to have you link up at my Homemaking Party. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us!

  2. Your dining room is beautiful and the perfect spot to have tea! I love white dishes with pink. I am a pink & blue lady. I never thought about leaving white Christmas items out. I do love how your trees look in the cloches. Great idea! Of course, I covet your white lanterns…….I haven’t been able to buy anything since my husband has been unemployed. I must admit I have to look deeper into my treasures to recreate a table. Love your chandelier too! Have a great week and Happy New Year!
    Blessings My Friend,

    • Thank you Elaine for your lovely comment and for stopping by to visit today! Pink is one of my favorite colors and I enjoy using various tones of it where ever I can.
      Have a lovely weekend!
      Blessings to you too!

  3. I agree that your dining room would make a grand tea room–so beautiful! Love all the little touches you always come up with– ones that make all the difference. I am enjoying blue skies and sunshine while purging things to sell and donate. Lots of work, but so worth it in the end, being nicely organized.

    • Hi Bobbi! I’ve been organizing too lately! Thanks for the lovely comment on my dining room table. Today the weather is better, Sunday was terrible! One of our house drains was clogged and our basement flooded with all that crazy rain we had. I’m so glad I organized everything and it was off the floor and on metal shelving units! Not Fun! My poor husband and boys were outside in the rain trying to fix it. Having a company try to unclog it tomorrow. I hope they can!
      Have a lovely Tuesday!

  5. Gorgeous tea! I love the white and the touch of pink is beautiful! I love how you folded them to look like roses. I have a couple of small trees like those and I love them. Yours are beautiful under the cloches! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
