Most people plan on having a picnic in the summer. Well, not here in Austin. I can only have a picnic if I want every single thing that I bring along to turn to a melted mush within like three minutes. Okay, maybe it’s not that bad but it’s just too damn hot. Anyway, now that it’s winter I’m really wanting to take a picnic under the pretty falling leaves and cool weather. That sounds like fun. So perhaps this is quite an odd combination of vintage and teaprty and picnic and holiday, but I can dig it.

The first time I wrote a tea time post, I showed my beloved Hall tea pot. When I came across this pretty mid-century Hall teapot on Etsy, I knew it had to be the main inspiration for my treasury. It just screams Christmas cheer to me.

I envision this Happy Holidays tin to be what holds the tea. Isn’t it cute?

So go have yourself a vintage, green and red, holiday tea party picnic.
