The pristine place setting sets the scene with green napkins to complement the table setting and in keeping with the theme. Bowls of whipped butter, and Fayette Cream (their version of Devon Cream for the scones) quietly announced the joys yet to come!

A nice hearty portion of Spanakopita was served next with a rich cream sauce. Layers of spinach and Phyllo and creamy goodness added a good base to this luncheon tea.
Following the entrée, we were invited to the buffet table in the other room where we could select the sandwiches and miniature desserts. There were Corned Beef squares, Poppy Seed Egg Salad and Benedictine Tea Sandwiches.

The miniature desserts included Bailey's Fudge (oh so rich!), Pistachio Cupcakes, and Greentree French Filled Wafers. The luck of the Irish was definitely with us!

Here's my sandwich and dessert plate after going around the buffet. Such a pretty assortment of tea delights!
