This St. Patrick's Day, I'm trying to "Embrace the Green"....of my dated kitchen! We reno'd our kitchen back in the 90's when Hunter Green and Oak were in and we loved it. Fast forward to 2011 and I'm NOT loving it anymore but it's not in the budget to update it at present. Thus, I'm thinking St. Patrick's Day is the perfect time to "Embrace the Green"!
This table is attached to our island and its hard to put a tablecloth on but I do anything to cover up some of the green!
I started with this "Leprechaun Under Glass" as my centerpiece. I used a black metal bowl filled with faux greenery, back-to-back leprechauns, two shamrocks and gold coins and put them under my candleholder-turned-cloche.
I set the table for two, Mr. Delight and myself! I gave him my one and only square shamrock plate layered on a square black plate and square white charger.
I made some placecards on the computer and added them to these green Sundae dishes filled with faux ivy and a shamrock.
I tied little plastic green beer steins around the bottom of the sundae cups with gold ribbon.
Of course, we need some "regular sized" beer steins for our "green" beer! I paired these with some multi-coloured green stems I bought at a local grocery store.
Again, these cylinder vases with inserts come in handy! I put shamrock garland, green beads and gold thread inside.
Gold covered chocolate coins are scattered over the tabletop.
Here's a look at the vignette on the end of the island.
A display on the counter by sundeck door.
Some greenery in the corner by kitchen window.
Shamrock cling-on added to candle holder and a plastic green beer stein with gold coins.
Trying to melt the snow from the inside! LOL!
The next morning, Mr. Delight made us some yummy French toast with berries, pineapple and whip cream so we ate at our "Irish Table"!
Hope you've enjoyed this St. Patrick's Day tablescape where I tried to "Embrace the Green" of my dated kitchen! (Not sure it worked....I'm still dreaming of an update!)
