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
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
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
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!
