March 17th is just round the corner!
So, today I am sharing a nice "Irish cuppa tea" with you in honor of St Patrick's Day, a favorite holiday from the land of the Emerald Isle.
I love Ireland, and someday I would love to visit this country steeped in tradition, mystical folklore, myths of fairies, and leprechauns dancing a jig.
A magical land of endless rolling hills and shadowy mists and moors.
The Emerald isle has a long love affair with the tradition of drinking tea.
It is one of the biggest tea consuming nations in the world per capita.
The national average is four cups per person per day!
Traditionally, tea in Ireland is served hot.
With milk and sugar
To celebrate green, I have pulled out my white dishes and green jadeite to set up my tea tray
I love vintage dishes! I love using them in tablescapes and vignettes and have so much fun playing with them.
The "Alice" jadeite saucer is one of my favorite patterns, I love it!
The embossed flowers on the plates and the scalloped edge design look so pretty, and the color itself is so beautiful.
This over-sized wicker tea cup was an impulse buy from Marshalls last year. I am so glad I picked it up because there are so many ways I can use it around the house as well as outdoors in summer.
For the candle, I just wrapped some lace and ribbon around it,
hung a paper tag with a St. Paddy graphic decoupaged on it, and...
sprinkled some glitter on it, reminding me of that elusive pot of gold!
I am all set to share a nice "Irish cuppa tea" with you, won't you join me?
Wishing everyone a Happy St. Patrick's Day!
May the luck of the Irish be with you :)
