All the girls with the help of of their Dads made little purses.

The boys played  on the tree swings.
We were having a girl and boy table, but as some of the girls couldn’t come.
 I only set the one table. All the children had goodies bags to take home.

The Chandelier is covered in pink and purple butterflies
At this point Lady Katherine was getting dressed,
 for she was up until 2:00 am and back up at 6:00 am, as the guests were arriving, she was in her gown still working away! Thank Goodness they were family! Well, some were friends!
So next time, for equitte, Please be dressed before the guest arrive!

TEA TIME TUESDAY – Saint Patrick’s Day Tea

Welcome To The 2nd Tea Time Tuesday


Join Me for Tea And A Stroll Down Leprechaun Lane


Today my table is set for four for Tea on my table in my kitchen
Usually when you have four or more for tea you use a large table, or dining table
This will not be a High Tea, which call for sandwiches too, or a full meal with deserts 

Informal Afternoon Tea in my Kitchen
Table Setting before the food

Place Setting
Leprechaun Lane sign: Dollar Tree
Shamrock bead necklace used as napkin ring: Dollar Tree
Green napkins: TJMax
Placemats: Dollar Tree
Place Cards: I made by cutting off the tags of items bought from Dollar Tree
Green Tablecloth: Dollar Tree
Wire ring of Shamrocks: Dollar Tree
Green Plastic Charger: Dollar Tree 
Looks like china, not plastic, lol
Desert Dish, Tea Cup: Great Gatherings Dishes: Big Lots
Green and White Polka Dot Bowl: Dirt Cheap for 20 cents each
Flatware pattern: Reproduction of Renaissance: Walmart

Table set with food

Place Setting with Spearmint Tea and Butterscotch Pudding 
Yes, I should have had an Irish Tea!  
To make the spearmint tea
 I added a cup of fresh spearmint leaves to my black tea

For My Bowl Of Gold Pudding
I added a wee bit of Irish Cream Liqueur to the Instant Butterscotch Pudding
Just a Wee Bit! 
For the topping, I added whipped cream, and crushed butterscotch candy

Another view of my table setting, facing the hutch I built
Are you thinking why does she have a pot of pumpkins on the table?
I shall tell you soon!

View of Table, the dining room Beverage Center is seen through the doorway
Don’t look close! lol


Centerpiece Tier
I used two bowls of the Century Polka Dot dishes, I got for 60 cents at Dirt Cheap
 in between three of Great Gatherings plates 

You do not have to do a lot to have a Tea
You can buy food baked and add some small touches
All the food came from Walmart
On the Bottom Tier 
I bought Cinnamon Apple Tea Biscuits  
 Bake and add sugar crystals on top just as the tea biscuits turn golden brown
Garnished with spearmint leaves
On the Middle Tier
Green Iced, shamrock sprinkles sugar cookies
On the Top Tier
Bite size green and white iced, chocolate cupcakes with green shamrocks sprinkles

A Century Green and White Polka Dot Bowl  filled with my homemade canned fig preserves
These fig preserves will be so lovely with the Cinnamon Apple Tea Biscuits 

 I used a Century Green and White Polka Dot Banana Spit Bowl, 
60 cents from Dirt Cheap
 for the Butter 
Lovely on your Tea Biscuits or  Scones 


Centerpiece
Tier of food with two bouquets of  fresh yellow narcissus, rosemary, and fern place in green and white polka dot pots. My  four year old Granddaughter Hannah,
 helped me pick and trim the stems for the fresh flower bouquets


My white Tea Set with tongs on top of the sugar bowl
so my guests will know to use the tongs for the sugar cubes
My Pot of Gold is in this Tea Pot!


I used a green and white felted hat for a tea cozy
As I brew my tea in my tea pot the tea cozy will help keep my Tea Pot warm
I also keep the tea cozy on my teapot, to keep it warm as my guest arrive
You can use a dinner napkin, or a tea towel to place around your teapot to keep it warm


Let’s take off the hat tea cozy and pour the tea

Always fill your cup 3/4 full  
Add sugar or honey first, taste
then try a little milk if you like
You might like to add lemon wedges for your guest
 Never add lemon and milk in your tea for the milk will curdle
I do not take lemon in any of my tea
I do not care for milk in my Spearmint Tea
Just sugar for me please

Another View facing the stair case in my kitchen
My little jelly cupboard is on the left

If your Looking for Your Pot of Gold, could it be this Golden Corn?
I think Miss Goose loves her Pot Of Gold!
Oh, she is Open to Share her Pot of Gold!


Now for my Show and Tell, or should I say: 
This is what I am sharing today at my Leprechaun Lane Afternoon Tea.
As I had you thinking why is there a Pot of Pumpkins on the table.
For this Pot of Gold, or rather Orange, lol
The Irish would carve jack-o-lanterns out of turnips,
When they came here to America long ago, they found pumpkins! 
Yes, they loved them so much they used the pumpkin to carve the jack-o-lanterns,
To ward off any evil spirits
I think this is a Pot of Gold!

Thanking You For Joining Me For Tea Down Leprechaun Lane
At My 2nd Tea Time Tuesday!

TEA TIME TUESDAY

Welcome To The 1st Tea Time Tuesday

Today I am Sharing My Tea for Three 
in my Parlor
I invited my neighbor, Margaret for Tea in my Parlor. As we sat down for tea. 
A lovely surprise, my lovely 90 year old friend, Hazel came for a visit with cinnamon almond bread. 
With her she had the recipe and with a starter to make the cinnamon  almond bread! 
I shall frame this recipe! 


Oh, sorry, back to my Tea.  I added another cup and desert plate. 
 Today we sampled loose leaf tea from  Vintage Tea’s Earl Grey Creme Tea.  


   Hazel took her tea with honey and milk. 
 Margaret took her tea with just a wee bit of sugar.
 I tried my tea with just sugar, Oh, but I had to try a little milk and loved it more.


The teapot was empty in no time, as we sat and talked, while eating my homemade persimmon cake, Victorian House of Scones cinnamon  blueberry scones, and chocolate puffs.   
 I make my scones up ahead of time. I freeze the dough in double ziplock freezer bags. 


Hazel always takes a frozen batch of scones home for she loves the scones so much. 
 Margaret she loves my persimmon cake, she takes home a few  of the persimmon cakes.  
I included links where I buy my scones mix and my loose leaf tea.
 I do not get any compensation for sharing any links on my blog website.  
Low Tea is when using a coffee table 
or small low table for Tea 
Low Tea is usually for three or less 
I used an old shawl, with place mats and a crocheted runner and an antique dollies in the middle. Napkins to match, with flatware, and used two votive candle cups to hold a white rose.  
Add a few pearls, flowers, and a bow. All upon my coffee table. 

Use only one tier plate set 
 
When I have Tea, 
my guest love to bring things to show and tell.

 Today I am sharing my Royal Albert Old Country Roses tea set on my beloved metal rose tray, from a lovely neighbor that left us a few years ago at the age of 90.
 A little bow on the honey jar.  On the table is the table cloth I crocheted long ago.

Oh! I had a lovely time. 
Thank You for joining me today for 
Tea Time Tuesday
Lady Katherine
