On St Patricks Day........

.......... everyone is a little bit Irish.

I don't have much in the way of green china, but this is my rendering of a tea for St Patrick's Day.



 This Heathcote teacup has the lightest green shading.


 The closest Shamrock table linen I had.

  Waiting for some delicious scones to come out of the oven.

 And of course we will enjoy some Green Tea :-)

Erin go Bragh!

Beautiful setting! I love your china, it's lovely and sweet, just perfect for a St. Patty's tea time! I love your ivory centerpiece, I used to have that in a wall in our yard, back at our old house and always used them for arrangements. Enjoy your week.

Very pretty! I don't have much green either as it's not my fav color. But your setting works beautifully for St. Patrick's Day! Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

Jocelyn, you know we'll come for tea no matter what you serve it in. :-) The green tablecloth is pretty and some green ivy makes for a perfect setting for a St. Paddy's tea.
I'm hanging around waiting for the scones...

Green is not a color I have much of in china either, and knowing the history of Saint Patrick I think the color is of little importance. The spirit of hospitality is though, forgiveness, and love...always in demand. I think any celebration of a person who dedicated his / her life to spreading the word of true love in Jesus is always worth celebrating. I love your table setting and it appears your preferred colors are much like mine. Lovely !

Now if scones are coming fresh out of the oven, I am waiting....

Is your tea table outside? Green china or not, that's an inviting location for a St.Patrick's Day tea!! I wish I could grow an ivy plant so pretty!

So pretty, Jocelyn! I think you did very well, setting a tea table for St. Patrick's Day! I love that teacup -- those with flowers inside the cup are so charming!

This tea tablescape in honour of Saint Patrick's Day is elegantly mastered, dear one! The tablecloth is splendid...appears to be shamrocks!!! I adore the white china, tea cups and saucers!!! Your napkin rings are exquisite!!!

Hey, Jocelyn! I don't own a lot of green, either, but I like the way you have used your imagination to create something wonderful in celebration of St. Patrick's Day! Drinking green tea is both healthy and right in step with celebrating the Irish!!! Have a safe and Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! (Visiting from Kathleen's crawl)
