Christmas Tea with Grandma

It is time for a Christmas Tea Party 
Grandma's house.  
Everything is decorated and magical
and the little ones really notice and 
appreciate it.

Of course, this is very girly girl decor
with fluffy feather placemats, and pink polka dots.
(Click here for the French Macaron tutorial.)

Pretty flower shaped pink plates sit atop the feathers.

A white holly berry plate tops the pink
and pink strips and polka dots finish off
our girls' tea party.

Pink and white macarons decorate the plate.

These lovely pink goblets are perfect,
and they are heavy enough for little ones.

This is all softness and fluff.

This party calls for sterling silver -
my Dubarry by International.

Our candy shop is under glass on
a pink and purple striped cake plate.
I am obsessed with cake plates!

This year I used fairy lights inside the
house, leaving the battery pack out the
back so I can turn it on and off without
removing the cloche.

The kitchen counter is filled with
glittering nutcrackers, and candy
themed items.

Naturally, there are real treats!

I adore the treat themed nutcrackers.

The Sweet Treats tree takes center stage on
the counter for our tea party.

It is surrounded by all kinds of goodies.

Little Christmas elves hide in the tree
to watch everyone during the season.

I got two of these adorable Christmas trees 
under a cloche, and they sit atop candleholders.

There are even nutcrackers with cupcake hats
on the Sweet Treats tree.

Little Jacquelyn who is only four, and she even
knows how to say "macarons" correctly
(like the French do.) 

I will be posting with


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. This is the most amazing tea party I have ever seen! You are a natural stylist and of course, you go above and beyond when it comes to your own little lovelies! Oh, my gosh! I ate everything up...the pretty dishes and the way you presented the fancy cookies and treats. Love macarons. Did you make these? I've heard they're difficult.

    Thanks for sharing such a pretty party!

  9. Jacqueline, I can't take my eyes off of this magnificent table!! Could it possibly be my favorite of all your incredibly fabulous tables? It's just like a magical Sugar Plum Fairy land complete with nutcrackers, fairies (I love those little guys and hang mine from my dining room chandelier), delicious and beautiful treats, and fluff and pink and sparkly things to entice any little or not so little girl! I just love it so much --
    every piece and the way you have pulled it together. Just fabulous! I'm sure the children were speechless. I want to come and sit there and just gaze for awhile before I taste everything. Thank you for this joyful table and all the inspiration! Linda

  10. Can I be your granddaughter? Oh Jacqueline I can't even imagine all those little eyes popping out when they see this! Feathers and sparkle, pink and cakes, what an over the moon assortment of girly delights! Of course they have grown up with your fabulous decorating and tables, so they probably just expect it :) I love the sweet gingerbread house under the cloche and those adorable tree ornaments in mini cloches. The sugar plum fairy tree is gorgeous, and those nutcracker ornaments are fabulous! I laughed out loud when I read that little Jacqueline pronounces macaron the French way! Bon Fête!
