A St. Patrick’s Day tablescape is coming up my friends ….it is that time of year….Check out the “Not Lucky just very Blessed” sign that I used last year sitting on the corner of this year’s table.
I do not feel lucky, but I do feel very Blessed…and not for just this St. Patrick’s Day, but for all the year long.
Can you believe it is already the season for the wearin’ of the green and St. Patrick’s Day?
It seems we just got all the Christmas decor put away doesn’t it?
Or is it just me?
St. Patrick’s Day has always been a special day for me!
Perhaps it is my Irish heritage and I do have red hair! LOL
(My natural hair color is red, even though I color my hair and have for years.)
I also have a grandson with red hair and… two little great grand daughters.
Of course, being Irish does not mean one is always a “red head”..one of my good friends is a lass born and raised in Ireland and her hair is a beautiful raven color.
She often comments on this blog and I treasure her friendship.
Friendships are important aren’t they?
I don’t know why, but I think of friendships associated with St. Patrick’s Day.
Perhaps it is because “everyone” is suddenly Irish when the 17th day of March rolls around. LOL
I am very Blessed in so many ways…my health goes without saying, but I am also very Blessed in having the Captain as my spouse and good friend.
I am very Blessed that we have such a wonderful church family.
I am very Blessed that we live in this United States (imperfect as it is) and particularly that we live in sunny Florida.
I am very Blessed to have so many Blogging friends.
And I am very Blessed to have dishes, and other items to set up a 2022 St. Patrick’s Day tablescape, as I did last week for the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day!
The green plaid tablecloth and napkins have been used several times over the years…and I love their vivid green color.
Silver napkin rings are so cute with the knife, fork and spoon soldered to a silver ring.
Green handled flatware flank the plate setting.
The placemats are shaped like a shamrock and are actually two-sided.
One side is white with a green shamrock design, while the other side is solid green, which is the side I chose.
As I gathered plates for a plate stack, I changed my mind several times, finally deciding on a Cabbage Green charger and salad plate by Bordallo Pinheiro that I have had for years.
A white beaded dinner plate is sandwiched in between the cabbage plates.
Sitting atop the cabbage salad plate is a shamrock shaped, lidded ramekin.
The two green glasses are from the dollar store purchased many years ago.
The green wine glass is stemmed and the water glass has shamrock designs.
A green cabbage cup and saucer sit atop a white warmer shaped like a star.
(No one likes a cooling cup of coffee with dinner.)
The center piece is a pale green cake stand and is perched on a green cabbage platter which was gifted by a friend.
The platter and the lidded cabbage bowl shaped like a real cabbage were both gifts from this sweet friend.
There are other cabbage pieces on the table including a shamrock casserole dish, gourd teapot, squash teapot and cabbage gravy and vegetable dishes as well as Jadite salt and pepper shakers,
Green shamrock beads were tossed on the table for a bit of kitsch.
Blessings Always to all my friends and family.
The Lord Bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.
Blog Hops are such fun and what a delight to see inspirational tablescapes from all over this United States (as well as other countries)…
