I will be joining Cuisine Kathleen for her 5th Annual St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl. Please join in, too.
I started with a solid dark green loose weave linen tablecloth. I have been looking for a green plaid, but haven't seen one that spoke to me. The shamrock napkins are some I made a couple of years ago...and I am also using a small white one with a green napkin ring. The flatware is Oneida Louisiana.
I am using double "chargers", the off white octagonal chargers are topped with a plain green (dinner) plate from Old Time Pottery. The plate we will be using for our corned beef dinner is a white Wedgwood Hedge Rose and the soup/salad bowl is Myott Colleen...very Irish, I would say! The only thing I bought for this table are the green plates, the rest was in my inventory and you have seen several times before! I haven't come across any bright green dinner plates that would be good for a St. Paddy's tablescape, but that is okay seeing they would only be used one time a year!
I think the iced tea glasses are Cristal d'Arques and my favorites, are the green etched wine glass, that I wish I knew the maker of. They may be from the 1930's...I just am not sure. I do know that I paid 99¢ each for them at Goodwill a few years ago. I keep looking on eBay to see if there are any like them, but to date haven't found any.
The centerpiece is a little Irish leprechaun toasting everyone with a mug of beer perched on a dessert pedestal and white candlesticks with green candles.
Thanks for stopping by today...do come back the next time.
