Christmas Tea Parties




This December has been a great one for holiday tea parties. The month began with a tea at my house with my writer friends. I had the opportunity to dust off the china and set a lovely table. Everyone brought a different tea dish, from finger sandwiches to scones and we had a great time. 



It was a wonderful way to kick off the holiday party season. 







This weekend, I attended the Victorian Ladies Society holiday tea where I gave a talk on Regency England Christmas traditions. It gave me a chance to dust off my Regency gown and attempt to wrangle my hair into a somewhat Regency-esq style. 


If you are looking for a great account of Christmas in Regency England, I recommend reading Washington Irving's Old Christmas. He paints a beautiful picture of what it was like to spend Christmas at an English country manor. 

I want to thank everyone who entered my Harlequin Historical Authors Holiday Giveaway. The winner has been notified. I hope you are all having a fun filled holiday season!

Delightful idea for a tea party! I would love to learn more about this era and its holiday traditions- and what fun to dress the part!
