I am happy to join Cuisine Kathleen's 4th Annual Saint Patrick Day's Crawl. Thanks for hosting this fun party, again, this year, Kathleen!
This year I decided not to use my usual SPD decorations, instead just a green/white/orange table to honor the colors of the Irish flag.
I started with an embroidered off white tablecloth. The colors taupe, green, tiny bits of yellow and orange. With the green and orange, I felt this suitable for SPD.
I don't have the Bordello Pinheiro cabbage plates that flooded the market a few years ago, but do have cabbage plates that would suffice for a SPD tablescape. The next layer is a white luncheon plate and finally the green and white salad plate.
I had pulled out the orange stemware, but it was just too strong a color for what I had in mind, so back into the hutch it went. The glassware used for this table is some found at Savers for 75¢ per stem. I am always drawn to anything green, somehow they ended up in the cart that day!
Being SPD, I absolutely had to use the green handled Madeline flatware! I love this stuff and it was so inexpensive...still looking for some in red.
I had a bit of a time wavering between green, or orange napkins...Howard was walking through, he said to go with the pale orange and use green napkin rings. I thought he was nuts, but when I tried it, I really liked it.
A wooden compote filled with a bag of clementines and white candles and candle holders rounded out the centerpiece. I made the compote with a wooden bowl and candle holder, then spray painted it green.
Our dinner for SPD will be corned beef with all the trimmings...meaning...potatoes, carrots and cabbage, fresh baked bread and a dessert, yet to be determined.
