It's time to join in Cuisine Kathleen's 6th Annual St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl.
My maternal great-grandmother was from Ireland and I'm feeling inclined to celebrate my heritage with this
St. Patrick's Day Table for Six
Hope you enjoy seeing it and all the other Irish goodies linked to Kathleen's party!
This tablescape began with three white "lacy" pots (maybe reminiscent of Irish lace?) with boxwood and shamrocks placed on top. These were then placed on square white plates and surrounded by shamrock garland.
A little lucky leprechaun enjoys a rest while surveying all the green.
Three of these little pots o' gold (had for years) were placed around the center plate/pot.
I used various shades of green dishes on a gold charger with gold coloured flatware.
(the bowls were a bday gift from my sister-in-law, I love their colour!)
The napkin is decorated with a tiny green beer stein tied with ribbon to the napkin ring.
The stemware was given some extra flair with shamrock vinyl cling-ons and wired shamrock garland both from the Dollar Store.
Candles decorated in the same manner were added to each place setting.
Below, you can see how I criss-crossed the green table runners to act as placemats.
This table is set in preparation for a St. Patrick's Day meal to be held hopefully sometime this weekend.
Because of Mr. Delight's erratic work schedule, it will be a last-minute-cooking-session with last-minute-guests-who-are-able-to-attend (switching out the sample placecard names I've used) which is, more often than not, the way we have to do things around here.
So it may be a St. Paddy's Day luncheon or...
...a St. Patrick's Day dinner by the glow of candlelight,
but either way, the scene is set to celebrate in style!

Now grab a bottle of Guinness or a glass of Bailey's Irish Cream and head on over to Cuisine Kathleen's Blog Crawl to get inspired for the upcoming Irish holiday!
