Christmas Tea

This is my all time favorite thing during the holiday season. We make reservations nearly 12 months in advance, (made January 2nd for a December tea). The Brown Palace is a beautiful, classically historic four star hotel in downtown Denver. It is gorgeous on its own, but when the holidays come around and the decorations are up, it is truly breath taking.

They serve high tea through the year, but with Christmas all around, it is warming during the holidays. This was our 14th year, just the girls, and as always was a very enjoyable afternoon of delicious tea sandwiches, scones, Devonshire cream, and sweets. Of course we also had tea. We have learned what we like over the years and all get the same, Black Currant. I know it doesn't sound great, and I honestly don't even like currants, but it is so good! We also enjoyed a little bubbly! It just makes the entire occasion so much fun and special. A wonderful tradition I hope to continue.
