The above box was what I took this year to my Reading Circle Christmas Tea. I always make some sort of favor filled with some kind of chocolate. Last year since I went to Brussels I purchased Belgium chocolates. This year I purchased my friends Phyllis and Kerry Graham's fabulous toffee. Their toffee is something I can not have around my house or it will be eaten all by me. I have no control with this toffee. You can purchase it at Let Them Eat Toffee in Newnan, Georgia USA and they do mail order as well according to their web site.
YUMMY!!! That being said, as soon as I got the toffee I had ordered for Reading Circle, I boxed it up using the popcorn framelit boxes I made especially for this occasion. I love giving the Reading Circle members a favor each year in lieu of sending Christmas cards which I send so few of anymore. The toffee fit perfectly in the box and it was a wonderful packaging for wonderful toffee. I got them "naked toffee" as well as their regular chocolate dipped toffee.
We had the tea in one of my all time favorite houses in Newnan, Guildhall. It is featured in a current book called Tudor Homes. Always a treat to get to be in such a majestic house. Plus since it is like many homes I have seen or been in in England, it makes me feel as if I am in England. Here is the home where we had the tea:
We had this menu for our tea:
Here is a poem that was set at the table:
And here was some of the delights on our table that we got to enjoy. Such a nice Christmas Tea!
Thank you so much for stopping by. I have the ingredients used for my boxes listed below. All I did was cut the box using the framelits out of the Christmas Designer Series Paper, put together added a circle and wrapped in a cello bag. The sentiment was from the Hang Your Stocking stamp set #142114. Easy!
