I've always liked turquoise as an accent colour to the lavender in our home and this Christmas tree inspired me to add a touch of it to my seasonal decor.
So, I filled a cut glass sleigh with shiny and sparkly turquoise balls to be my dining room table centrepiece this year.
There are a number of festive pot luck suppers this month and in December. For the supper this week I baked miniature butter tarts and made little shortbread snowflakes with my cookie press.
When hubby surprised me with some teas from David's a couple of weeks ago, this Spiced Fig tisane was one of them. Read about tisanes in the November/December 2013 issue of Tea Time magazine on page 17. When I first tried the Spiced Fig, I told hubby how yummy it was and compared it to drinking a piece of Christmas cake. When finished, I've been eating the fruits and nuts from my tea pot infuser.
As the tisane is steeping, I've put a plate of treats out for us to have with our tea. I'm using my Chelsea Bird teacup with the aqua trim from Royal Albert.
I will be linking with these ladies for Tea Time Tuesday this week: Rose Chintz Cottage, Friends Sharing Tea and A Return to Loveliness. I hope you'll pop over to see my hosts and their guests. Thanks for visiting.
