The Christmas issue of Tea Time hasn't hit the local newsstands yet, but I did pick up the Christmas issue of a sister publication, Southern Lady, and it is one of the prettiest magazines I've seen this fall.
I've never decorated with dark blue dishes at Christmas, but this feature on a Blue Christmas is so striking, I'd sure consider it. (Those of you with all that pretty Blue Willow and blue transferware should love this!)
And while I've been to Disney World several times before, I haven't been at Christmas. The Southern Lady feature on Disney's Grand Floridian sure makes me want to visit in December. All the Victorian Christmas decor is breathtaking, and I especially loved this teapot installation in their gardens.
I was surprised by how many teawares I spotted in this issue, including these pretty pink ones in a feature on Eufaula, Alabama's Christmas Tour of Homes. With lots of great recipes, lavish table settings, and Christmas trees galore, this is a great issue to inspire us in the days of decorating ahead!
