The tree is set in a silver urn, with two doilies wrapped around it to help keep it upright. I also placed three teacup-shaped tea bag rests around the bottom of the tree to help prop it up.
To add sparkle I decided to use some Princess House crystal angel ornaments and a tiny spun glass tree. The tea tree is in the Kitchen, which is decorated in a Christmas tree theme.
I am also using small-scale teacups such as this one by Royal Copenhagen:
I have a variety of additional tea ornaments to add. There is the Spode "Christmas Tree" which was a must-have since that is one of my Christmas dish patterns.
Then there is a teapot and cup and saucer in the Lenox "Holiday" pattern, my more formal holiday china.
I will also include a silverplate tea spoon with figural teapot handle, and a gilt tea spoon with figural teapot handle.
To add to the sparkle, I am also thinking of adding a couple teardrop ornaments from JoAnn from Santa’s Workshop, and a few crystal prisms:
I will also be decorating the tree with a dozen small glass balls, found at a local consignment shop. They are clear glass with iridescent finish.
For the treetop, I’ve selected a vintage angel tree topper. The wings and halo are sparked with glitter. The bottom of her robe is banded in white cotton. The body is white plastic and glows when a light is inserted.
I’m looking forward to receiving my tree so I can set up my tea-themed tree. Have you ever done a tree with teacups and teapots as the theme?
