this was my first year hosting a st. lucia day tea. i have wanted to do this for some time. st lucia is an italian saint who helped christians hiding in the catacombs in 300 AD. she brought them supplies at night, and because her hands were so full, she attached candles to a wreath and placed it on her head. the day is commonly celebrated in sweden and other scandanavian countries on december 13th.
here are some photos of my tea!
the invitations i created and mailed to friends
