A Highland Heather Tea

Hello Friends!
Welcome to

 "A Highland Heather Tea!"
When Sweet Sister came for Christmas Dinner this year she brought me some special gifts.... a treasured Foley Highland Heather Teacup and also two Friendly Village teacups.

We had 22 for dinner. Everyone brought a special Christmas dinner dish!

  I set a table for ten in the dining room where some of the (older) adults sat .

Even my soon to be 93 year old mother came. (Me with my dear mom).
One table was set for nine in the kitchen for the (younger) adults.
And one in the family room for the three wee kiddies.  They wouldn't sit still long enough for a pic.
I was overjoyed to see this teacup gift because I had the matching cream and sugar bowl which was once my dear mother's!
This elegant Foley teacup is a soft pale blue with designs of Highland Heather. 

On the inner cup and on the inside of the cream and sugar bowl, you see a dainty strand of pink and white heather with greenery.
The cup and saucer are trimmed with gold.
The handle shares the same pastel blue tone.
 I am enjoying my time today and having tea with a few leftover Christmas treats.  I am blaming my weight gain on my recent surgery. Lol!
Thank you all for visiting me today for

A Highland Heather Tea!

Wishing You All A Very Happy and Healthy 2014!

  1. Lovely Karen! I love your heather china! So pretty!@ A big group is always so fun and folks bringing things sure helps! Glad you had a wonderful time and I wish you a cup full of blessings for 2014. Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  2. Hi Karen: What a wonderful Christmas dinner. My family also is large and it is always fun to have everyone get together for our special Christmas meal. Hoping you are feeling well. Please send me a email and let me know how wonderful life is treating you. May God richly bless you and your family this coming 2014! Hugs, Martha

  3. Everything looks so pretty! I love those aqua sheer curtains and with the pink poinsettia near them--it just looks perfect!

  4. Hi Karen,
    Love the aqua curtains! We seem to like the same colours. It sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas celebration and dinner. I love your new teacup; it's beautiful! You asked about my little Zachary. He spent Christmas in BC with his family but I will see him this summer when they all come to visit. Brent just lives five minutes away so I see him whenever I want. *smiles* Thank you for sharing your lovely tea with us at Tea Time and I hope your New Year is filled with much joy.


  5. Hello Karen,
    Your home looks so festive and inviting. I am sure your family had a lovely time at Christmas visiting you. Your new tea cup is wonderful! I love it! What a gorgeous color...and heather too! And your beautiful new Friendly Village tea cups too are fab!
    Happy New Year to you!

  6. Hello Karen, and happy New Year. I'm only a few hours away from the new year here and I'm thinking of my children and mother and you on the West Coast. Hope your day is lovely and peaceful as you ring out the old and in the new. Much love for a prosperous and wonderful 2014. :)

  9. Hi Karen, lovely tea party full of guests you had. When we have a tea party we have a little table set for the wee little teas. Your Highland Heather cup and saucer is a wonderful gift and such an elegant colour, beautiful!

  10. I love your blog! Your home is so beautiful, and you can just feel the warmth of your heart as you share with others. May the dear Lord bless you throughout the new year! Enjoy your sweet precious Mother passed away in 2012. She was 84, and I miss her so terribly every, single day. Cherish every moment you have with her! God's peace be with you!

  11. The Highland Heather teacups are pretty, it's nice you have the cream and sugar to match.
    Your holiday meal was enjoyed by many and they all look pleased to be at your table - all except the missing little ones! ;-)
