Welcome to the 44th Tea Time Tuesday  
Come into the land of Gingerbread Men and Peppermint Dishes
Every Christmas I have my family for Breakfast
Each year for the third year now, I add pieces to my collection.
My dining room table is full for Mother’s table, which the extra leaf is still missing. Oh but my grandchildren love to line up on the bench. I found six chairs this year at the annual Garage Sale for $40.00.
We shall pull up another bench to put in place of the chairs, so all 10 of us can fit with little elbow room.
I usually have the four grandchildren table set up in the little sun room behind the dining room.
Things are still out place, so the sun room is full, besides my grandchildren love Granna’s Gingerbread Land!  
View toward the window and sideboard I built
The buffet on the right with the plate rack above I made and painted Gentleman’s Blue
I used two old drawers from my old kitchen island to make shelves for dishes, the bottom part of the buffet was bought at an auction, hoping to have it a new home soon as I find the buffet of my dreams.
View toward the China Closet my husband built onto an old closet, and added the old French Doors from our home.
On the backs of my chairs hang wreaths with a Gingerbread Man Chef
My daughter Suzette got me these wreaths, from Dollar General last year
The Gingerbread Girls and Chef are from Cracker Barrel 
My candy tree I decorate for each season, I added lollipops,  from Dollar General this year
The little houses on the tree, I think came from Walmart this year
Cass at That Old House has one of these trees too, she told me last year it is for hanging Christmas Cards!
I bought at annual garage sale for $1.00
The little trains underneath, from Dollar General
My friend Kathy from Mississippi, gave me the Gingerbread Man on top,
I added a Santa hat and a lollipop 
Girl Gingerbread Place Setting 
Notice the cup is a girl from Cracker Barrel
The Gingerbread Girl Bowl with the Heart from Burke’s
Peppermint Plates and Desert Dish are from Cracker Barrel
The napkin is from Pier One
The Gingerbread Man napkin holder from Dollar General
The Green Sandwich Pattern Juice cup from Thrift Stores
I bought my daughter Jennifer boxes of Green Sandwiches pieces while traveling/working
So today even though she was not here I had a little piece of her heart with me.
The Gingerbread Man Cup and all the other dishes are from the stores as above
Gingerbread House on left from Bath and Body
The Gingerbread Chef Cookie Jar from Dollar General this year
The Gingerbread House on the right is from Cracker Barrel
The little Gingerbread Men setting on peppermint candles are from Dollar General

Tablecloths and Scarfs on the tables, buffet, sideboard are from Walmart, Burke’s, and Dollar Tree
All the peppermint candles are from Dollar General or Walmart
View toward the China Closet
See Christine, here is where I need another window to make a door,
for my China Closet
Old Dresser and shelf  I built from reclaimed wood from our walls
I gave it large crackle finish, I use it as a Beverage Center
Here you may have Hot Tea or Hot Chocolate
The Tea Sets are from Cracker Barrel
The Creamer and two sugar,(from Cracker Barrel) in the middle on a cake plate from Walmart
The sign says Grandma’s Treats
I used ruffled chargers from Walmart under the Tea Pots
This old dresser is set up for Sweets, the silver Kiss, from Walmart,
 holds chocolate to dip marshmallows.
The basket, and it’s lid is standing up is a pie carrier: from Cracker Barrel
I forgot to move the painting on the side of the old dresser, 
was hoping Hubby would get around to hanging them. 
Close up
On the sideboard are three cake plates and servers I used cake plates and bowls to stand these on.
 Gingerbread Men Cake Plates on each side, are sitting on this  peppermint bowl, see the little gingerbread men feet? From Cracker Barrel 
The Gingerbread Men Cake Plates and servers are from Dollar General
In the middle the cake plate sits on a peppermint cake plate, from Cracker Barrel
These were used for bacon, eggs, and toast
For Gloria, another close up you want of the Gingerbread ornaments that hang on the three tier server 
I hope you enjoyed our Gingerbread Tablescapes we do every Christmas,
It so much fun to see the children’s joy in their eyes, in my Gingerbread land!

  1. What a gorgeous and festive gingerbread candy land, Katherine. It looks so much fun! I am sure the grandkids enjoyed it so much…Christine

  2. This is just darling beyond Lady Katherine; what gingerbread and candycane treasures galore!.., How utterly adoreable and festive!

    I have been away from visitng for quite awhile as I was far too exhausted to do so with all that was also going on.., I’m happy to be back!

    Have a wonderful and continued movement towards health, New Year dear lady!

    Cheers and hugs from Wanda Lee

  3. Hi Lady Katherine! I love everything about these photos. Besides the gorgeous table, I love the shabby chic dresser/tables and your glass-doored cabinets! Lovely!

  4. How wonderfully loved all those children are, for a Magical Grandma to create such a Fantasy-Land for them every year!!

    And Magical is the words for this—just beautifully put together over who-knows-how-much time and from so many places—it just all says LOVE.

    I know putting it together was a bit of Magic in itself—all the fun and festivities to come, and such a wonderful family time, and I can imagine you must have had LOTS of help in clearing away and washing up, for it must have been quite a feat.

    I’m smiling just thinking of that wonderful breakfast, and all the smiles and happy talk at your table.

    Just beautiful, as always. You’re making some life-long, wonderful memories for all your family.


  5. Dear Katherine,
    What a darling setting! I LOVE all the gingerbread and how fun to sit and have tea amidst all that ginger! It truly would be like walking through Candyland! Have a lovely week and a Happy New Year.

    Christmas blessings,

  6. Oh goodness! You are exactly right. My gingerbread man cookies would have fit right in with your Tea Time Tuesday! What an adorable table you set…just adorable!
    By the way…those were the most delicious cookies! I usually don’t care for gingerbread..but these were fantastic. I was surprised.
    Dear Lady Katherine..thank you for stopping by! Please do come back sometime. 🙂 I shall return for a visit soon too..


  7. Hi Catherine,
    Love the Gingerbread theme…everything is so cute. You certainly have quite the collection. Thanks for sharing.
    Happy New Year.

  8. Hi Katherine, I’m stopping over from Tablescape Thursdays and have to tell you that your Christmas post is by far the happiest looking one I’ve seen so far! Your grandchildren must just love being in your home over the holidays! I think I’ve seen the closet that your husband turned into a china closet with the glass doors, it’s just a wonderful transformation and I love it! If you have a minute please stop by my blog and see what we’ve been doing over the holidays at Frog Hollow Farm. Ciao, bella!

  9. Oh Katherine, I love it all! I always do my kitchen in Gingerbread at Christmas time, so that is a fav theme of mine. Really Darling,

  10. I just love all your gingerbread people, they are so adorable.
    What a cute table, I bet your grandies do love love love it!
    Would like to sit there myself, so adorable. What a nice job.
    Blessings for a Wonderful New Year and thanks so much for coming by and for your nice comments.

  11. “I LOVE ANYTHING Gingerbread” SO I LOVE,LOVE,LOVE your post!!! WOW, I’m in “Gingerbread Heaven here”… I am definitely going back to STUDY every detail… It was “SO HARD” BUT I picked a favorite, and that is the cracker barrel treat house(LOVE THAT!!!). Of course this comes second on all “Your WONDERFUL Creations”… They are #1!!!
    Happy New Year to you and yours,

  12. What a wonderful gingerbread tea! I cannot believe all the gingerbread accessories. I’ll bet the children’s eyes are HUGE when they enter the room. I would love to attend such a wonderful tea party. Wonderful!!!

  13. This is soooo adorable. I don’t know how I missed it. Christmas is such a busy time. There’s hardly time for blogging. I’m happy to have a few moments to catch up on all I missed. That is one serious collection of gingerbread people!
