Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Saturday Tea

three of us
finished a project

Once done, I invited my two other friends
to Linderhof
for tea

In the breakfast room

With lace on the table
Orange tulips in wee Waterford vases
And my "green china"
for Sunday is St. Patrick's Day

Tea treats?

A glazed green cake
not made by me
but made by a friend
Served on a green and white platter from Greece

The cake was pretty and tasty as well!

Linda's cresents were the other tea treat
Taken from the tray that I'm taking to an event on Sunday.
Cottage cheese, flour and butter crescents
frosted with an almond frosting
and topped with cherries
orange and green
for the Irish flag!

Tea brewed in my everyday Emile Henry pot
Because it's green

It was fun having an impromptu tea
But even more fun to have an Irish impromptu tea

And not a leprechaun or shamrock is in sight!

It's Sunday and I'm joining the Tablescaper  for Seasonal Sunday.

I so enjoy your posts, having tea and delightful treats. I often jot down your recipes. I would love to entertain as you your lunch bunch stories. Curious...why you don't return the visits. Maybe I am being bold, but just wondering, sweet lady. :)

No leprechauns around here either, although plenty of weeds! Your tea looks divine, as always!

What a lovely tea. I think the Irish flag is brilliant. I hope to remember it by next year. Bet you ladies had a fun time.
