I'm hoping that this will work (fingers crossed). This is my first attempt at Tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan at Between Naps On The Porch. Please visit her to see lots of georgous tablesettings.
We always have a traditional meal of Corned Beef and Cabbage for our St. Patrick's Day celebration -- it sort of serves "double duty" as our daughter, Katy's Birthday dinner as well. Now there's a true Irish lass for you!
Today, I'm using plates that I bought at Goodwill. The white plates I bought about a year or so ago. For @$20, I got 10 dinner plates (1 recently cracked), 7 soup bowls (I just got an 8th from e-bay) and 8 coffee mugs. This past Saturday, when I went "treasure hunting", I found the green salad/dessert plates for $5.25 for eight. Then cloth napkins I have had awhile. The placemats were another bargin treasure this Saturday from Target - 2 sets of 4 for $2.49 a set. The silverwear I ordered from a restaurant supply store on-line. I've had those about 3 years. You may also notice 2 napkins per setting. I almost always have to "explain" this to first time dinner guests. The cloth one is for your lap -- paper for your mouth. (It saves me a from lot of lipstick stains!)
My centerpiece is a picture frame with green plaid paper inside, holding a candle, a pail of ivy, a bunny who's been hopping through the shamrocks (see his green stained feet?) and I think a leprechan must have dropped his bag of gold!
Thanks for stopping by!
