A Scottish Tea

Robbie Burns Day,
January 25th.
is celebrated worldwide.... to honour
 the national poet of Scotland.

I am having a tea with friends 
and decided to decorated in Scottish plaid.

I baked Scottish Shortbread Cookies.
For the basic shortbread recipe, click here.

The two tier serving dish is
Solian ware ~ Simpsons Ltd.

Scottish tartan/plaid  make up the Scottish kilts,
the symbolic national dress of Scotland.
Specifically tartans are attributed to clans or families.
The Crawford Clan is in my ancestry with my Mom's family.

Above a page from the book "Tartans" by Brenda Ralph Lewis.

Thistles are embroided in the tablecloth edging.

The "THISTLE" is the national flower of Scotland

 Cup and saucer ~ Royal Albert ~Wayside Series 
Below -Royal Stafford 
MacPherson Tartan 

The plates below are New Brunswick and Nova Scotia plaid.


The dinner bell below has the New Brunswick tartan and crest. 

My pics are dark.
We lack sunshine lately.

I am grateful to friends and family for
lending me some items for this blog.
 Elsie for the plaid tablecloth.
 Muriel for the beautiful thistle edged tablecloth.
Sister Carol for her cups and saucers, nutcrackers,
 and tartan book.

And thanks for your visit. xo

A Winter Tea

It's a cold wintery day, 
with lots of snow on the ground.
I'm having friends over for afternoon tea.
I've baked Winter Cupcakes
and Coconut Snowballs.

The sunbeams are welcome with
the cold weather we've been having.
It was -23C (-9 F.) yesterday.

I had been looking for a white teapot 
to do a "Winter's Tea" and thanks to my 
sister Carol who found this lovely set
 at a church sale.

Chocolates, Coconut Snowballs and Winter Cupcakes
For the recipe of my coconut snowballs click here.

The teapot, creamer and sugar ~ Gibson, England.
