6th Annual Saint Patrick's Day Crawl


It's that time of year, again...Cuisine Kathleen's 6th Annual Saint Patrick's Day Crawl...come join in the fun! Kathleen, I can't believe it has been 6 years!


This year I chose the colors of the Irish Flag (ORANGE, not red, green and white!) using the Vera tablecloth as the background, a solid green napkin with a white napkin ring and what else...cabbage plates!


Woods and Sons dessert plate...the yellow is actually real gold. For some reason it doesn't photo true.


The stack includes a green Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage charger plate, white Wedgwood Hedge Rose dinner plate, a Bordallo Pinheiro salad plate, a Wood & Sons Glenwood finally a new acquisition, white Bordallo Pinheiro soup/salad bowl. (I found the soup/salad bowls yesterday at Tuesday Morning). The green cabbage plates were a gift from my friend, Jo Jo, last year.



The glassware is IVIMA 1895 hobnail in green.


I chose the Oneida Afterglow sterling flatware.




The centerpiece is white daisies and a little Irish Leprechaun getting tipsy sitting in his pot of gold!


Thanks for visiting today...do come back next time...and be sure to follow along for the St. Paddy's Day fun at Cuisine Kathleen's!

Wow Marigene, your table turned out great!! What a good idea to use the orange tablecloth! I got some cabbage plates at Tuesday Morning a few weeks ago -- such a good buy. I want some more, now. :) Your collection is so pretty, and I really love your green hobnail goblets. Gorgeous!! This is a perfect table for the St. Pat's Blog Crawl.

Have a good day, Marigene.

Hugs,

Denise

Marigene, I love your dish stack and I heart your Wedgewood plate! So clever to use the colors of the Irish flag. Thanks for starting the fun tradition with your wonderful vintage table topper :)

Beautiful!! Those flowered plates are stunning and I love the orange tablecloth. Quite often, I used orange flowers for St. Pat's for the color in the flag. Such fun!!

Entertaining Women said...

Using the red cloth to signify the Irish flag is a great design idea. It really punctuate all the greens. I think that the Woods & Sons plate is gorgeous. Thanks for inviting us for a peek, and Happy St. Pat's Day! Cherry Kay

Marigene, your stack of plates stole my heart. What a gorgeous group of plates! I recently added a set of white cabbage leaf plates to our cupboards, so it's fun to see you mix these. I've had the green for some time. I'm going to pin a few of your photos for inspiration. Thanks and Happy St. Pat's Day!

Very clever of you to bring the orange into your tablescape. Quite honestly, I would never have thought of it, but it's perfect. Love your layers.

Really enjoyed your little leprechaun…he added a fun element to your table. Now all you need is a little corned beef and cabbage on those lovely plates.

Such a lovely tablescape. I'm mad for your dessert plates! Clever to use a red cloth too, it really brings out the greens.

Oh my goodness, I love your new green transferware plates! The Wedgewood is also so nice against the cabbage plates. Such a beautiful table! Glad you liked my white post!

Kathleen said...

So pretty! I love cabbage plates, only have a few, and that floral plate is beautiful. Your green glasses are always a hit with me!
Your orange tablecloth reminds me of my best friend in college. She was 100% Polish so every March 17th she wore orange, and she had red hair! But, in the end, she married a Murphy!
Thanks so much for taking part in the 6th annual St. Pat's Bog Crawl! Slainte'!

I am stunned at how beautiful you St Patrick's Day table is. I never thought to use the colors of the Irish flag as a base on my tablescape. The cabbage plates and the desert plate are striking used together like this. I will be searching for green hobnail glasses like yours, they are beautiful!!
