It was a beautiful sunny day yesterday and as the sun’s ray shined down it helped perk up my spirit. Wanting to be outside, but not having a ton of energy, a simple St. Patricks’s day table was set up.. Simple is really the operative word here but there’s nothing wrong with simple, is there?
I don’t have many Irish dishes or other decorating items so I usually use the same set scored at GW 3 years ago. If you’d like to see the set I’m referring to and read about Mr. C’s Irish family history and connections to Al Capone click here! Its a quite interesting story.
Last year I found two vintage green plates and used them in this years St. Patrick’s day table.
I’ve been lucky to find vintage postcards and used two Irish ones on the table. The green glassware was found thrifting and so has everything else except the table fabric and polka dot plant.
Using fabric remnants as tablecloth is economical and practical.
Each place setting became with thrift store dinnerware. A rattan charger for contrast, white chargers, vintage green plates and a white napkin. The napkin rings were made using wild onions from the yard tied in a bow!
The table is a sitting area across from the pond. Click to see secret garden sitting area in summer.
Looking down from inside one of my kitchen windows facing my gardens. I just noticed I forgot to add a cushion to one of the chairs…and they are green which added to the theme.
As I mentioned a very simple St. Patrick’s day table…but it’s all the energy I have lately.
Wishing you all a very happy St. Patrick’s day….how do you celebrate St.Patrick’s day?
