‘Tis the day we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at Kathleen’s Irish Blog Crawl. To show you a few bits and pieces of what remind me of the Emerald Isle, I’ve created a simple and thrifty table setting, using everyday dinnerware and a recent purchase of some shamrock plates and mugs.
The tablecloth lends a Celtic look, don’t you think? I found it on clearance last week at Target for $2.48. What a bargain for a 90-inch tablecloth!
Two pots of greenery help set the stage for the Irish-inspired table.
As well as setting out two pots of greenery, I used an elevated cloche to feature two Irish dancer figurines. Then I propped a capiz shell window ornament against the base of the cloche stand.
Nothing says “Irish” like shamrocks!
Delicate Irish moss fills this small urn.
These figurines were a gift from a friend in California. Thanks, Dawn!
Wicker chargers set the backdrop for the green stoneware plates that I bought at Kroger for $1.00 apiece. Topping them are the white luncheon plates that I found at Home Goods last month. The rims have an embellished edge of what looks to be four leaf clovers and the center motif is a sprig of traditional shamrocks.
Such a delicate shamrock pattern and a sweet clover design, too.
Adding a touch of Irish whimsy to each dinner plate are these two tags.
The tables looks a bit empty with no food on it. The plan is to get busy making some Irish soda bread on Saturday morning, as well as some colcannon and a boiled dinner. No desserts during Lent for the husband, so I’ll just make sure I have a few chocolate candy bars for myself. You can’t go wrong with that!
I leave you with the following Irish wish~
