St. Patrick's Day Tablescape

May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!
~ An Old Irish Blessing

I have used the plates and green glasses in other tablescapes. I had only 4 green glass until last week when I found another one for $0.59. I am still looking for a 6th to complete my set. I got the yellow placemats 6 for $0.79 each on my thrifting adventures last week also.

I bought the plant from Aldi's several months ago for $5.00. It was still in its plastic pot until last week when I found a new one at a thrift store for $3.00.

I served Mulligan Stew, Garlic Potato Bread, and Salad for our dinner.

I made Shamrock Cards and Gelatin Popcorn Balls with vintage rickrack.

I made an Irish flag inspired veggie plate.

And he watched over me before I knew him, and before I learned sense or even distinguished between good and evil, and he protected me, and consoled me as a father would his son.

Therefore, indeed, I cannot keep silent, nor would it be proper, so many favours and graces has the Lord deigned to bestow on me in the land of my captivity. For after chastisement from God, and recognizing him, our way to repay him is to exalt him and confess his wonders before every nation under heaven.

  1. Lovely table! I married an Irish man, and for some reason, I struggle with tables on St. Patty's Day. But you did it! And you had Mulligan stew, too! NIce job!

  2. It's beautiful! You are very talented! And I love that you did it very frugally!

  3. I felt so at home when I saw your tablescape. I have chairs just like yours and my table currently has a dark green tablecloth and white (lacey) placemats! I didn't serve stew, but potroast is pretty close. Happy belated St. Patrick's Day!

  4. wow, you are so good at this! And I love the prayer of St. Patrick... wasn't he an incredible man?

  5. I love your greens. It is a very cozy table.
