A Shamrock Tea Table

Hello to you all and greetings to March!

Not sure where all my time went,
 but it is time to share my shamrock tea china!

Shamrocks, shamrocks, everywhere!

Please grab yourself a tea cup and join me!

If you enjoy a sweeter taste, be sure to grab a
lump or two of shamrock sugar cubes!

I have been collecting shamrock things for years.

I even have china shamrock spoons. : - )

They're perfect to use with these little cordials;
the just-right-size for pistachio moussse!

Here is my very first shamrock china ever;
 a wonderfully sweet gift from my eldest daughter.

She knew how I'd love a shamrock teacup!

I have found quite a few different ones over the years!

Here's a few things put together that make a happy little 
St. Patrick's Day Irish vignette!

Wishing you all the luck of the Irish!

(And of course, if you are Irish, you are lucky enough!)

I am having my REAL tea on Sunday but didn't want to miss the
St. Patrick's Day crawl with all this shamrock china to share.

I have shamrock stuff all over the house and even outside.

As always, thank you for your visit!




  1. Stunning china and setting Michelle! I'd love some tea pouring out of that gorgeous teapot! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Fabulous setting Michelle! What a great collection you have! Sp perfect for the occasion!
    I especially like the flatware handles and your sugar cubes. Too cute!

  3. Oh Michelle, I love your tablescape! Your shamrock tea china set is just fabulous and just brilliant looking and your little great details are just precious!


  4. You stole my heart with all your beautiful Irish things. All so beautiful.

  5. Glad to see you back and glad to see your beautiful shamrock china! Last year, I found the most wonderful shamrock teapot from a terrific eBay seller (you may have heard of her?), and to my amazement, she included in my package a gorgeous shamrock teacup! I'll be creating a vignette with it all in the next few days -- can't wait!

  6. It's such a pretty pattern Michele!

  7. A wee bit of Irish in you Michele? :-) What a fabulous collection, did you make the sugar cubes? I haven't decorated them since my baking classes but they're impressive on a tea table.
    I hope I find a pretty shamrock or two when I go to Ireland in June.

  8. OMGoodness, Michele. You have a WONDERFUL collection of Irish china and items. They are all just beautiful. I love everything and have a few pieces myself. xo Diana

  9. Dear Michele,
    You have some collection there! I love it all-it makes me smile. You are all set for St. Paddy's. The spoons are darling, the teapot fabo, the pitcher so pretty, the tea cups divine and all together, they make a table any Irishwoman would be proud to set.
    I LOVED seeing this! Ruthie

  10. That is a very nice collection! It does look springy when blogs put out the green. =D

  11. Have missed you Michele, your collection is georgeous! Love the teapot.

  12. Your shamrock china is so pretty, Michele. You have a lovely collection and might there be a wee bit of the Irish in you, my friend? The spoons are darling and I love the teapot! It's always fun to see your shamrock pretties and thanks for sharing them with us. Thanks for joining me for tea and enjoy your day.


  13. Beautiful!! You have a fabulous collection of shamrocks. March is my birth month so I've been collecting a few shamrocks, too.

  14. Your Shamrock china is so pretty and perfect for the upcoming special day on the 17th. :) I must look for something tomorrow as I don't have one thing with a shamrock on it. Those little shamrock sugar cubes are adorable too.

  15. Totally happy to find your shamrocks !
    luv the cutlery too -
    growing up in the town of Killarney, I couldn't very well NOT luv it all =))

    I posted TeaTime in Scotland this week - kettle's always on!

  16. You have the single prettiest collection of shamrock stuff that I've seen IRL or out in Blogville. I love it all.

  17. Oh my! Love your shamrock dishes. Never have I seen shamrock silverware! Love it all. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  18. Michelle, this is just the cutest, freshest table! I love your collection.

    I read the other day that St Patrick was having a difficult time explaining the Trinity to one group in Ireland when The Lord prompted him to pick up a shamrock and explain it that way. I loved reading that just as I love your shamrocks... And those spoons are too, too cute!



  19. Sooo Pretty! Not only is the dinnerware beautiful, but I love the flatware. I've never seen anything like it before. And those glasses.....

  20. Ooh love the shamrock china! You have some real nice goodies there!

  23. Hello, love finches, I watch every day for their return to Maine. Where do they go?
    Adore the tea sets with shamrocks. My parents were from Ireland,
    I went to the Beellick factory and Waterford. First visit Happy St. Pats Day.

  24. You have such beautiful shamrock accessories, Michele. I love all your tea service. I have that same beanie bear. Isn't he sweet? Although I have several mugs, I don't have any teacups with shamrocks. I'll have to look for one. xo

  25. Wow Michele, you have a very impressive collection of shamrock items. The teapot is my favorite. I don't have any shamrock china but you have inspired me to begin my own little collection.
