St.Patrick's Day Tea Table

 The tea table is set for St.Patrucks' Day with my collection of
Royal Tara Teacup Trios.
I'm also using the matching teapot, creamer (milk jug),
open sugar and matching cake plate.
Y'all know I got hooked on collecting English Teacup Trios
during travels in England. 
I don't often find a matching cake plate, but when I do,
I've been known to snatch them. 
Shall I serve sandwiches or sweets on the serving plate,
 or use it under my teapot as in the top photo?
I've been known to use them both ways.

I couldn't resist re-posting the bottom photo.
This is my
"Cup of Christmas Tea" table,from a fun raiser tea a few years ago.
The square green base plates were Aunt Ida's.  She told me about
a trip she and her son took with her husband to Chicago in the 1940's.
She purchased these plates in Chicago and brought them back home
to Kentucky in a box on her lap. 
I enjoy setting a pretty table with loving thoughts of Aunt Ida.
