An Ivory Winter's Tea for Two



Please join me for tea today.

The theme of this simple tea is ivory with doilies.








It is a tea designed to be enjoyed slowly
and with a wonderful friend, such as YOU.









I've set up a small round table with two arm chairs
 in front of the window for us.

(This way we can talk a long while in comfort.)








I've made us some tea snacks:

Snowflake sugar cookies
Lemon shortbread
White chocolate muffins











A doily makes a great "charger" when using little snack plates.











We have pretty white roses to make the tea table extra special.

They smell so wonderful, reminding us of a summer garden.










We have a thick snowflake tea cozy to keep our tea hot.










And a bowl full of sugar to make our tea as sweet as you!








As always, thank you for your visit today!
