I would like to host a St. Patrick's Day tea party again this year. But, I have not been able to find my box of St. Patrick's Day items.
So I thought I would share the last one I had. It was just a small one for my friend, Sandra, my sister, Patty and myself.
Though I do have enough tea cups and items to host a St. Patrick's Tea Party for at least 10. I went crazy one year on eBay buying all the tea cup and saucer sets that had shamrocks.
At this tea we started out with Scones. Since the strawberries were so good then I just had to use them. So to tie it in to the theme I just used shamrock doilies.
Same for the desserts. We had mini chocolate eclairs, coconut cake and madeline cookies. I put them in St. Patrick's Day cupcake liners and added a shamrock pick.
To make the pot of gold I used a black witches cauldron from Halloween time and filled it with gold foil coins, a chocolate Leprechaun and a lottery ticket. Of course with wishes of having the Luck Of The Irish as it was being scratched off.
Oh yes, there was a 2ND favor for everyone at the table. It was a box of chocolate shamrocks and more gold coins. The chocolate all came from See's Candy. YUM!
I would love to serve more Irish dishes at my next party. Things like Irish Soda bread, corned beef and then have a soup that is green like creamed asparagus or something.
Well, maybe next year.
So, how about you? Do you do any type of a party or meal that is special for Saint Patrick's Day? I don't know if it's because I'm Irish or why but I really like St. Patrick's Day.
