Today I’m setting my first St. Patrick’s Day Tablescape. I’m also participating in the first Tablescape Blog Hop hosted by my friend Debbee from Debbee’s Buzz.
If you’re stopping by after a visit with Sarah from Hyacinths of the Soul, welcome! There will be links to the other 13 participating table stylists at the end of this post.
Another first is that I collaborated with my best friend, Meredith, on this table setting. We’ve been friends for over 40 years, and she’s been one of my biggest supporters on this blogging journey.
Meredith lent me her dishes and linens for the tablescape. It was also her idea to use clementines on the table. A talented artist, she wrote the Irish inspired quotes at each place setting in calligraphy.
The plates with a lovely green motif are Noblesse from Japan. I layered them atop my green matchstick placemats and rattan chargers. I used my gold (plastic!) flatware.
Each place setting has a different quote…
Which one is your favorite?
I used two different tablecloths in my color scheme with complimentary patterns. While green is my favorite color, I think orange is underrated. It’s not just for Halloween. I designed an Orange and Blue Thanksgiving Tablescape that is still one of my favorites!
You may recognize my centerpiece…it’s my Spring Decor Box that I made with Dollar Tree onion grass and a vintage green box.
I put grapevine orbs in my green glass urns to add texture and to coordinate with the rattan chargers.
This interesting looking orange flower was a part of the bouquet my husband gave me for my birthday last weekend. I popped it into this small green vase that I also borrowed from Meredith.
The gold chocolate coins are left over from the holidays. When my daughter saw them, they started to disappear!
The green stemware are from Dollar Tree, which I most recently used on last year’s Woodland Christmas Tablescape.
I’m not Irish, but I had the luck of the Irish while photographing this table. After struggling with the lighting for my Valentine’s Day in Paris Tablescape last month, I was finally blessed with ideal lighting to take photos.
The one Irish member of our household, Fergus, scored a clementine from the table. I suppose he was feeling lucky, too!
I hope you enjoyed my St. Patrick’s Day Tablescape! I’m the last stop on the hop, but if you haven’t been through the tour yet, start at the top with our hostess Debbee at Debbee’s Buzz.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
