St. Kathleen's Table


I will be joining Kathleen of Cuisine Kathleen for her St. Patrick's party. Please stop by her pub to see what everyone else is parading...thanks, Kathleen, for hosting this party!



The inspiration for my table was this little vintage Irish table-topper I found on eBay a few months ago. I layered it over a large white tablecloth and built from there. It has Celtic knots on each corner, shamrocks around the edges and a plain white center to put my little leprechaun that is toasting you with a foamy beer!










No placemats were used. I used a large lime green dinner as a charger, added a cabbage dinner plate and topped that with a creamy white soup plate.







Stemware, green water glasses and crystal wines.


Green decanter.






Thanks for taking the time to stop by, now go over to Kathleen's so you can see everyone else's table!

I don't think we use green enough for tablescapes. Your cloth is lovely.
Thanks for stopping by Applejack Lane.

Kathleen said...

Oh that is pretty! I love the Celtic knots and the cut work underneath. You have a great selection of green plates..they look wonderful with your green glassware!
Don't spill any beer on that pretty cloth!
And I do love the name of your table...Anyone who knows me would agree it is appropriate..NOT!
Thanks for joining the party, my dear friend!
