My Annual Christmas Tea

 Bits of my notes for my presentation of Keeping Christ In Christmas Through Simple Decorating or something like that.  Not quite happy with that title.

 Soon I will be unloaded my great grandmother's hutch, taking all my tea things over to our church, along with my glass plates and flatware.

 I love this tea cup - it was found on one of our anniversary trips!  We both have Scottish blood and it was a perfect find.  This one will be going to tea as well.

As will these beauties!  All my tea things are so beautiful but they are all used frequently!

The tea theme is "An Old Fashioned Christmas" and as usual we want to keep our focus on Christ at Christmas time.  This is always the underlying theme.  I am doing a whole presentation on simple and inexpensive decorating. 

Pray for me!  I will be nervous until it is over!  This year my mom won't be there - her church is having it's annual tea as well that night!  And Lindsay and Emily will be working!  I am going to miss them so much!  

I'll keep you posted as to how it goes!
