St. Patrick’s Day Tablescape Past

IMAG0749ew titleIn this post I am sharing a tablescape from the last St. Patrick’s Day we spent in Florida. It was a simple unpretentious table. (Please note: these photos were taken with a point and shoot camera. I did the best I could to edit them.)

The dinner plates are Verde dinner plate (World Market). The salad plates are Sicily White by Thomson Pottery. The stainless flatware is Bentley by Heritage Mint. The wine glasses are from IKEA.

The leprechaun salt and pepper shakers and the serving plates were gifts from guests who attended our St. Patrick’s Day parties in previous years. We hosted a big party every St. Patrick’s Day for many years and our guests frequently brought us thematic gifts.

IMAG0749ewI made the table runner from seasonal fabric that I picked up at Joann Fabrics. I used plain green napkins to coordinate and placed a wooden shamrock embellishment on each place setting.

A simple green and white floral centerpiece was surrounded by tall white taper candles in clear glass candleholders (collected over time from Goodwill.) I created the easy centerpiece from lime green and white carnations in floral foam. The container for this arrangement is stoneware picked up at Walmart. The centerpiece was embellished with three green glittered butterfly picks in a nod to spring.

Small pillows on the extra dining chairs were hand-embroidered with Gaelic messages…

This tablescape is one of my all=time favorite St. Patrick’s Day tables. It was simple, not fancy, but I just think all the elements came together so well. This table was from 2013, our last St. Patrick’s Day in our Florida home. A few months later, in July, we sold that home and began our transition to retirement life and to our new home, Our MT Nest.

I’ll be sharing my St. Patrick’s Day table for 3016 in a post early next week. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’lll return soon.
