Santa Is Ready for a Cup of Christmas Tea at Our Home

We decorate our house at Christmas in traditional red and green. 
What are your favorite holiday colors?

The stockings (and KJ) are awaiting Santa's arrival. 

Thanks to AJ and GJ, the family Christmas tree is up and decorated.

Perhaps it's more the matter of having inherited my mother's satin-striped burgundy sofa---never sat on, I do believe, when I picked it up, than a matter of personal taste, but almost everything in the living room can be geared around burgundy---a nice clear reddish burgundy, the deeeep rose of looking through a bottle of wine.

So we do burgundies and pinks and pearls and nice shades of green and gold on the tree and bows and swags and mirror-drapes and door wreaths and curtain-toppers and ribbons on packages---but mostly burgundy.

In Spring, a nice leafy slipcover converts that deep sofa into a lovely pale background for all the florals and whites, but now it's burgundy, all over the place.

And DD does most of the decorating.

Love seeing your Santa pouring tea. Some years I decorate with the traditional red and greens, as I have done this year. Some years I decorate with white and gold. I depends on the theme for my holiday teas as to what colors I choose. It is so fun to see everyones decorations. Thanks for sharing.

I love your chef Santa pouring tea and the "Cup of Christmas Tea" china. The guys did a great job with the Christmas tree.

Oh my goodness, how I do love that Santa serving tea figurine! (And we have the same mini tea set!) My taste in Christmas colors varies year to year. Sometimes I go all Victorian with pinks and burgundies, last year it was lime green and red, this year I guess it's more of an olive green with red -- just a little of this 'n that!
