Christmas Tea Party

Today the girls in our family had our annual Christmas Tea Party! This is always a very special tradition for us and something that we look forward to each year. Usually the tea party is held at my Great Aunt Carol's house. This year she decided to treat us to lunch at the Science Hill Inn.

Elyse and I arrived before everyone else so we got some pictures:

Inside the inn was decorated beautifully for Christmas! I love this time of year!

We got pictures with Bellie before lunch! This was her first tea party!

We enjoyed a yummy lunch, complete with chocolate chip pecan pie for dessert! Then we were ready to shop! Every store was decorated with different Christmas trees! They were so much fun to look at. I snapped a few pics of my favorites!

The candy tree!

& the cardinal tree! GO CARDS!!

The sisters in front of the HUGE tree!

We shopped until the stores closed! I ended up with some great new Christmas decorations & ornaments! Here they are:

Santa clothes pins for my Christmas cards!

  1. Such a fun family tradition! I'm totally jealous of your relationship with your sisters, gma, aunts, etc. So fun!

    I love your holiday decor and we totally have the same cabinet from IKEA. I love how you have it decorated and never would have thought to hang Christmas cards from the top. Such a great idea!!
