In the summer of 2014 I had the privilege of taking a trip to Ireland.
I brought home shortbread shamrock cookies whereas at home I usually bake sugar cookies and decorate them.
I also bake Irish soda bread to have with tea and breakfast. There are 2 recipes I use and both have been added to the recipe page at the top of my blog.
I searched for some authentic Irish linen and finally found this square table topper in Belfast at a National Trust Garden. People donate linens to raise money for the trust and this one had a tag attached dating the piece to 1920.
I couldn't leave Ireland without bringing home a lucky shamrock necklace. Well, enough about my trip to Ireland, come join me for tea.
We'll be using the two shamrock teacups by Phoenix inherited from hubby's grandmother who brought them with her from Ireland.
We're having Irish afternoon tea from Connemara.
Good tea is a pleasure,
Good friends are a treasure.
~an Irish blessing~
Will you celebrate St. Patrick's Day with a tea at your home or at a tea room?
