Saint Patrick's Day Table


For one that has lots of green dishes I have very few you have not seen...these green qautrefoil shaped ones were found last summer, so they have been sitting on the shelf just waiting for a once a year table...Kathleen's St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl! My daughter, Erin, would have liked these plates when she was a child, her food could be separated so it didn't touch!

I always use the same centerpiece, actually the only one I own...the tipsy little leprechaun!













I even made cut out cookies and iced them for the occasion...Happy St. Pat's Day to my friends!

Today, March 10, would have been my parents 70th wedding anniversary.

Thank you for visiting...please come back next time.

Most definitely a St. Paddy's Day look to this table! Now all you need is green beer to go with the setting!
Love you,

I have been waiting for you to decorate a Saint Patrick's Day Table and I love it! These clever clover leaf plates are just precious and you layer your settings so beautifully. Cute little leprechaun on his pot of gold as a centerpiece. Every detail is perfect, including these festive cookies:)
My parents were married in March too-time passes way to quickly.
Happy St. Paddy's Day!

My great grandma was from County Kerry Dingle Bay Island in Ireland so she would be so happy to see this tablescape. Congrats from both of us. bbb

Looks like you are ready for this! I love those darling bands you put on the napkins.
Your stack of plates is really fun! Glad you picked up the plates. They are perfect.

Sarah said...

Glad you made those cookies. I've been craving a sugar cookie all day. Your table definitely celebrates the green. Great job, Marigene. Always fun to see your tables!

What a fun table to celebrate St. Paddy's Day, Marigene. You always have the prettiest stacks of dishes. I love the darling band of fabric on your napkins. That's a cute idea! Now, I must make some shamrock cookies. Thanks for the inspiration!

Marigene, I love the qautrefoil plates, they look fabulous with the white BP cabbage leaf charger plates, both are perfect for a Saint Patrick's Day tablescape. Your table is a delightful display of lovely shades of green to honor Saint Patrick's and your homemade shamrock cookies really do look magically delicious! I am in serious need of a cookie fix today myself. Right now I need to get busy to get my post ready St. Pat's too.

Such a festive St. Patrick's day table. Love your little tipsy guy and his tradition of being your centerpiece. Could you please pass me a cookie Marigene? Yum! :)

Janneke said...

I so enjoy your wonderful tablesettings, and the tipsy leprechaun......
Do you know the name of our gardenclub:
"the Leprechauns".
Have a nice St.Patrick's Day!

No mistaking what you are celebrating with this great tablescape! Everything looks great. Love all the layering...

Kathleen said...

Ah you kept those green dishes a secret, they are perfect! Love your table, your mixing of your different cabbage plates looks great. The cookies look delicious. I went the easier route, made shamrock chocolates, Mike is enjoying them!
Thanks so much for being a part of this party, I appreciate your loyalty!

Hi Marigene, A perfect table for celebrating SPD. Love the shape of the dinner plates and mixing with white. I'm sure those cookies are delis. Love you daughters beautiful name.
Happy St. Patrick's Day

Diane said...

Marigene, I love how you went "all out" with the green on this table. The shamrocks, the darling leprechaun, the cookies and the beautiful green glassware. It is perfect - I hope you find the end of the rainbow, as you certainly deserve it for this great table!!!

Mary said...

Hi Marigene, I love your collection of green for your St. Paddy's Day table. I had to chuckle at the food not touching, it reminds me of my SIL :) Thanks for starting the fun tradition of the travelling topper. I look forward to seeing where it ends up and how it celebrates! ♣

Marigene, all that wonderful green is a feast for the eyes. The glassware is just beyond. So pretty!

Ellen Thompson said...

I love everything! Now, I need a cookie. Note to self: find my cookie cutter!

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

Marigene, Your table is so inviting! And your daughter's name even fits the theme--Erin--I love it! One of my kids would not let his food touch and he still has those moments at age 23. I'm still searching for the blogger who has the table topper this year. You started such a wonderful tradition. Happy St. Patrick's Day with your mischievous leprechaun! Linda

I love all the green- it's like a valley of green grass! Your leprechaun is cute- he's a keeper! I definitely like the green quatrefoil dishes- great find! Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Pattie @ Olla-Podrida said...

The St. Pat's crawl is such fun. I really love seeing pictures of the beautiful tables of people who are as obsessed with dishes as I am. I was walking through Pier One today lusting in my heart after even MORE dishes thinking that I must be in need of serious therapy. I love those clover shaped plates on the bottom.

Candy S said...

Visiting again from Kathleen's, I still want one of those wonderfully delicious cookies..... Candy

Wonderful table, Marigene. I love the leprechaun sitting on the pot of gold with a pint in his hand :) Hope you're warming up there - nice here this past week!

Barbara F. said...

I am ready to sit down and have dinner! Love those shamrock plates, amd the cookies look so darn good. I would love to have one (or three!).

Blondie's Journal said...

Your table is so cute...I hope you have company to enjoy it! Your daughter reminds me of a few of my kids with that "not wanting anything to touch"...then I had kids that grossed me out by putting gravy and corn on their mashed potatoes. Go figure!

Love the layers and colors...you always do a smash up job, Mari!

Lulu said...

Laurie Ritchey said...

Marigene, your plate stack is so pretty. I love all of the different shapes of the plates, and I really want some cabbage dishes, but have no place to store them. Now that I've seen your bowls, I'm thinking bowls may take up less space! I like the way you wrapped the fork with the napkin.

Angelina B. said...

This St Patrick's table has me green with envy (heehee couldn't resist the pun). I especially Love those cabbage plates!!

FABBY'S LIVING said...

Marigene you did it again! Your table for SPD is gorgeous! The clover leaf plates are my fave, although your entire stack is great! The leprechaun is adorable and I love it taking center stage.
The green goblets just pop up perfect in this great setting!
Thanks for your visit, you made my day!
Hugs,
FABBY

Hi Marigene, Thanks so much for your visit and sweet comments. I'm sorry I'm just now getting to visit you; we left town the day after I posted my Irish table to spend three days at the coast. I tried to visit people when I got a chance, but the house we stayed in had no wi-fi.

I love your pretty and festive St. Pat's Day table! I would LOVE to have that cabbage pitcher. :-D My favorite things on the table are your little cabbage bowls, the white dinner plates (so pretty) and of course your new green plates. I also love your green goblets and the shamrock bands around the napkin and forks. You did a great job, and your shamrock cookies look delish. :)

I hope you had a happy St. Patrick's Day, my friend, and thanks again for visiting!

Hugs,

Denise
