Beautiful mother of two princesses, Maria Teresa and her two daughters Camila and Maria embody European elegance and family love at its best! Making us travel to their home in Lisboa, they invite us to a delightful Portuguese Christmas tea party! Put on your prettiest gown, widest smile and come with us into a world of refinement and beauty!
Christmas is our favorite holiday of the year! As soon as Halloween is over, the magic of the festive season enters our home and fills every room! We decorate the whole house spreading the joy of Christmas all around us!
Traditions are very dear to us and for the past five years, we have had a very special gingerbread house made. Designing it with the girls is always a fun moment, we pick the style and all the details to have it custom made by the talented @limalimaofestascomcharme! What a joy when the home of our dreams arrives! It's our own little winter wonderland and we enjoy displaying it all throughout December for everyone to admire!
We also read Christmas stories every day of November and December. We sit together and escape to fantasy worlds with our favorite characters. Year after year, we add new books and our collection is starting to be quite big!
The festive season in Portugal is a time for family gatherings and delicious meals with close friends. Its highlight is Christmas Eve.
On the night of the 24th, we celebrate the birth of Jesus and open our gifts with our loved ones after a nice family dinner. The 25th is also a family day and celebrations continue.
