A Little Christmas Tea

I found these cute little tea set Christmas dishes at a condo garage sale for $5 for a set of 8! I couldn't wait to use them.


They are Johnson Brothers Merry Christmas. They have a little cup inset in the corner for the tea cup. 



I went out looking for red plaid napkins today, and imagine this-- I couldn't find any! But that's me, good ideas, a little late!


I am making initialed ornaments for each guest. 


I got the idea from The Creativity Exchange.

Pat!! Oh my goodness, do you know what those are worth??? What a great find! I am so jealous I cannot stand it, lol! I have seen just one set for $35 on ebay, and you got 8 for $5! They are just gorgeous! I love the ornaments also, and of course your tartan ribbon!!

What a great set of dishes! I would have scooped them up for that price too.

The monogrammed ornaments are clever and look so pretty.

Thanks so much for visiting! Your set of "party" dishes are just too cute -- they are so handy for keeping up with the food and the drink at the same time.

I will follow you!
