Getting in the Christmas Spirit

My sister Steph hosts a beautiful Christmas tea every year, and it's a wonderful occasion to dress up and enjoy some champagne while catching up with family and friends. This year was bittersweet as Steph and her family have moved to California as of last week, but before she left Houston, she put on a fantastic fete with amazing food, a string quartet, a harp, and beautiful decorations. Here are some pictures from the day.

Great pics! Wow I enjoyed those! No time for snapping pics when you are hosting.

The spoons held a port wine gelee with a roquefort cheese mouse and walnut, I think. They were fun and good. Saved about 20 in the fridge and a couple days later when my dad returned from his cruise he and Graham hoovered them!
