A Gingerbread Tea


Welcome! .  Today, we are joining Mr. Toast via Applejack Lane at his first annual Christmas tea event.  Be sure to join him at Hot Toast and Jam for more tea party fun!

We are having a Gingerbread Tea today.  Do come in!

Won't you have a seat?


How could we have a southern tea party without cheese straws?

Finger sandwiches, anyone?  We have cranberry pecan chicken salad and cream cheese with chive and a dab of Christmas jam...

For a gingerbread tea, we must have homemade gingerbread scones...

Would you care for a cup of Christmas raspberry tea served from our little cottage teapot?

Some sweets to nibble...


Please help yourself...


and I'll do the same...

 Thank you for spending your afternoon at Applejack Lane.  Thank you, Mr. Toast for hosting such a wonderful event.

I'm awaiting my invitation to tea. I just got back from the mailbox, but it hasn't arrived yet. I'm sure it will because I must take part in anything gingerbread:) Your tea was delightful. Come join me for Crock Pot Wednesday at Dining With Debbie whenever you can.
