Now I know you want to know what those martini glasses are filled with so I will just go ahead and share. We mixed coffee ice cream and Bailey's Irish Cream, topped it with whipped cream and garnished it with a green candy stick dipped in chocolate. Let me tell you it was sinfully delicious! What could be more Irish than Bailey's Irish Cream? The Belleek cup and saucer was a gift I had bought my mother before she passed away. It is so beautifully translucent and delicate, I was almost afraid to use it. If you are wondering how Stephanie got the chocolate to stick to the sides of the glass, it is Magic Shell swirled into a slightly frozen glass and then we filled it with the adult only milk shake.
The cake pops are even Bailey's Irish Cream flavored. I think I like this Irish holiday more and more. Look at this beautiful four-leaf clover plant. I stopped in at Julie O'Keefe's Home and Garden in La Canada, California, and she gave me this beautiful plant to use in this photo shoot. I just love it. It is perfect! I haven't seen these little plants anywhere else this year.
These cake pops are wonderful and so pretty too.
One last thing before I go. I think by now you know I have a weakness for vintage textiles. I only keep the best for myself and I wish I would have ironed this one a little better for you. This is from an old toile drapery panel and this print is fabulous. I use this every Christmas at the shop to dress a table. The green and white is perfect for so many occasions. It is one of the finest examples of antique toile I have come across and this piece is probably from the 1930s. Well, it's almost an antique. Thanks for visiting. Hope you enjoyed today's tea. Happy Sunday.
