For the past few years, my mom has taken us out for Christmas tea. And by us, I mean me, my daughter, my two young nieces, and herself. Unfortunately Counting Bee can't come at this busy time of year for her. (But don't worry, we make it up to her in the spring by going again!)
That's right girls, go on in to Victoria Rose Cottage. They're expecting us.
It is very Victorian on the inside with lovely velvet drapes, tin ceilings, and dark and cozy wallpaper.
I love how they eclectically set the table. No cups are matching, no plates are matching, but it all works together.
|This was my favorite cup, but Cutter Bee and Sewing Bee each got to use one of them.|
Reader Bee, Sewing Bee, and myself ordered the Cottage Tea which came with a green salad, tea sandwiches, and a scone. I do love Devonshire cream with a bit of lemon curd on my scones. YUM!
Cutter Bee and Baby Bee had the Young Royal Tea which comes with mini Pigs in a Blanket, peanut butter and jelly tea sandwiches, and whip cream covered scones.
And if that wasn't enough, we even shared dessert.
|Vanilla Bean Cheesecake with Blueberries|
|Creme Brulee which is a favorite for all of us.|
I just love Christmas traditions, don't you?
