Christmas Tea Party

December 12, 2010

I love anything Victorian and anything Christmas so check out  these ideas for a crazy old-fashioned look.

And have a look at the old photo –  Victorian Christmas Afternoon Tea and Christmas Tea Party Table Decorations FROM: “The Delineator” December 1901. From the Victoriana Magazine –  Christmas Party Ideas | Christmas Tea Party.

Tea Party – …. place a lace cover or one of drawn-work, circular in shape, on a round table, and a block of ice draped with smilax and holly in the center. A Japanese umbrella edged with lanterns at intervals and a fanciful Japanese doll will look pretty in the center for this holiday Tea Party.

In preparing the ice for the table decoration for the Tea Party, choose a square block then chip in the center a hollow. Then after laying a napkin in a silver dish, place the ice upon it and cover the dish with greens, filling the cavity in the center with flowers.
