We've always loved St. Patrick's Day. Our daughter's birthday is the 14th and she always asks for Irish fare for her birthday dinner. Can't go wrong with corned beef brisket and cabbage and potatos. So, come on and join us for some food and blarney!
You can be sure I've set a place for you.
I found these salad plates a few years ago right after Christmas on sale at Marshall's --- As soon as I saw them I thought "perfect for St. Patrick's" --- don't you love the little Irish cottages?
Silk cabbage leaves make the perfect placemat for an Irish supper.
Green goblets for tea and we'll have some Irish coffee with our dessert.
Using the same chargers, flatware, napkins and green goblets from last week's table makes this a simple tablescape to put together. You can really change the theme and look of a table by just changing the top dish and the centerpiece!
A hammered aluminum tray hold my little Irish village......
....a couple of cottages.....
.....and a village church.
And I do believe that we've discovered a happy leprechaun underneath this mushroom!

We must have a shammrock or two!
And it looks like we've been rewarded with a wee bit of gold.
My only purchase for this table was a couple of bags of chocolate gold coins and a bag of dried split peas for my Irish "greenery".
Hope your St. Patrick's day is full of fun, blessings and a wee bit of blarney too!
I am a wife of 35 years, mother of two grown children. and grandmother to 4 adorable grandgirls. I love crafting, tablescaping, decorating -- but am probably not terribly talented at any of these. That doesn't stop me however. I'm so honored that anyone chooses to visit me -- I hope you find this blogspot to be a welcoming spot to visit -- come on in and stay awhile -- let's have a nice chat.
