Christmas Spritz

For my tea today, I've set it in the dining room.  My pretty barn wood box that my beloved hubby made for me last Christmas is filled with faux evergreens and real pine cones.  I've lit my rose bowls with some votive candles for some soft glow.  A dear friend gave me the rag doll angel years ago and I love her sweet face.  My Christmas tree tea set was a gift from our youngest son when he was just a little fella. 

I'm having some Constant Comment tea to compliment the orange flavor that's in the cookies.  If you'd like to try the recipe for my favorite spritz cookies, it can be found here.

I am sharing this with these lovely parties:

Make It Pretty Monday

           Thank you for your visit!  xo


  1. Very pretty Kitty, looks nice and cozy! My last batch of spritz didn't turn out so well... Back to the drawing board:@)

  2. hey nice post mehn. I love your style of blogging here. The way you writes reminds me of an equally interesting post that I read some time ago on Daniel Uyi's blog titled How To Stay Positive Around Negative People During Christmas .
    keep up the good work.


  3. Hi Kitty, Your holiday tea table looks warm and inviting. The barn wood box is gorgeous! I've not tried spritz cookie, I'm finding so many new recipes here, thank you for sharing. Have a great Monday!

  4. So pretty and Spritz Cookies are one of my favorites!

  5. A pretty tea table and the angel is sweet. I made spritz for a couple of potlucks but today, I'm making your sugar cookie recipe into snowflakes for another potluck on Thursday.

  6. Completely charming and I am going to snag the recipe, too. I am always looking for a flavorful dough to use with my cookie press.

  7. I love the Christmas tree teaset! I haven't made spritz for years...although I do have a press! Thanks for the reminder. Your setting is lovely!

  8. Your angel is so sweet, Kitty, and the tree tea set from your son is adorable. The wooden box is a nice touch too. How lovely to have these a part of your tea setting today. Very charming! The cookies look good too. Thank you for sharing at Tea Time and have a beautiful day, my friend.

    Christmas blessings,

  9. Love your angel and the spritz look delicious. I haven't made them for several years but I think I will again this year. By the way, I tried your pie crust recipe and it worked out well. It's tasty and not too difficult.
    Hugs, Beth

  10. You have some lovely things from friends and family in this tea party! The box made by your husband is a real prize. Your darling Christmas Tree tea set is darling and has great memories. I hope you and I can meet this year for lunch or a cup of tea before Christmas! You always make my make my week with your lovely postings and treats! I will send you an email with my phone number and for it would be an honor to meet you!


  11. Your little angel is ever so sweet and adds just the most lovely touch to your tea table. Always a joy to visit you!

  12. Dear Kitty,
    what a sweet Christmas Tea Vignette. Love the little Rag Doll and the tea set is beautifully. And Spritz Cookies are one of the best, right. Thank you so much for sharing this sweet setting and your wonderful recipes.
    Hugs and greetings,

  13. It looks warm, cozy, and comforting to me. I want to slow down today and enjoy something like it. True story: I have never made Christmas spritz cookies. I love cookie baking so that's kind of a wonder. I need to make these.

    Right now, I am taking time out of my crazy schedule right now to find a recipe I got from a blogger friend for peppermint bark last Christmas. I was thinking it was one of the good bakers like you, but I haven't found it here from searching. If you are the peppermint bark elf, could you send me an email with the link? It was delicious, and I was apparently too stupid to pin it.

  14. So lovely, Kitty. I will save t hat spritz recipe. I enjoy Constant Comment tea. Love the votives in the rose bowls . Hope you are doing well. (((Hugs))). xo

  15. Such a sweet tea setting. I love your Christmas tree tea set! The rose bowls add such a pretty sparkle to the whole setting.

  16. Love the doll. It is so cute. Have a wonderful week. Blessings, Martha

  17. Kitty, I love the barn wood box your hubby fashioned for you~ it makes such a wonderful centerpiece for the seasons! Such a cheery Christmas tea set too :)

  18. I love the Christmas tree teapot set, the mug and your cookies. I know how much the barn wood box means to you and it makes a lovely centerpiece. Sweet memories! Merry Christmas and Merry Tea Day!

  19. Huge fan of the Spritz cookie. Lovely vignette.

  22. Beautiful Kitty. I love that box your dear hubby made for you. What a sweet remembrance! Thanks for sharing with our 'Creating Christmas' party.

  23. I love the barn wood box with the candles and pine cones. I want to try to make the spritz cookies. I had some last Sunday at an Afternoon Tea and now I think I should learn how to make them.

    Hope you have a lovely holiday.

  24. The C'mas box is lovely sweet Kitty and the memory from your dearest hubby is what makes it priceless! I love your tea set, it's adorable and unique, along with the cup and plate. Yummy cookies too! Thank you for sharing it with us.
    Merry C'mas!

  25. Fabby just said it better than I ever could. Have a wonderful Christmas.

  26. Kitty, I love using my cookie press and have always used a wonderful old recipe that was giving to my mother by a friend in the 50s!! They actually taste a little like pound cake (lots of butter!). I must try your recipe soon - your cookies look delicious. Also, dining room has such a beautiful glow from the candles and I love that tea set!

  27. Boy, am I glad you featured this post as one of your notecards, Kitty...I missed seeing it the first time around!
    I have a Pampered Chef cookie press & love it...they are my SIL's favorite type of cookie. I am running to your recipe link to see how you make your dough.

    Love the cute little Christmas tree tea set...what fond memories these treasures bring. I bet, he too, remembers when he bought it for you. Sweet!

    Sending Warm Comforting Hugs your way...wish I could send you some cookies, too!
