Green and Orange St. Patrick’s Day Tablescape
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!

Oh, sweet Fergus!! He is adorable! Isn’t it great when we can turn to our friends to help us style our tables! I have such a friend as well, and literally “shop” her home anytime I need some extra touches or inspiration! The plates are really very pretty. So delicate! And the pops of orange are just the thing to honour the Irish flag! Happy St.Patrick’s Day!
Rebecca!! I want a virtual sit at the place setting with the saying about freckles!! Guess I am going to have to fight Rita and a few others for it!! Such a cute idea with the different sayings at each place!! Fergus is adorable!!! I have a thing for huge dogs, I hope you have a nice ☘️ 💚
I love the spring decor box with the onions. That’s such an original centerpiece. Fergus is such a good looking dog. Your table looks lovely, as usual.
Rebecca, I love the Irish proverbs and quotes at each place setting along with the pop of orange for a nod to the Irish flag in your table! Your layering of linens and placemats makes for a wonderful foundation for your St. Patrick’s Day table. As always it’s a treat to hop with you and join you at the table again. Happy St. Paddy’s Day! ♥♣
I love how you added orange into the color scheme! What a pretty table and those quotes on each place setting are such a unique and special touch!
Your table looks lovely! I love that china and the Irish quotes that you placed on each place setting. Using Clementines was a brilliant idea. I also love how you layered your tablecloths.
I didn’t know you had an Irish Wolfhound! I have adored them for years! Your table is so fun! You did a lovely job with the green and white dishes. I love the addition of the irish quotes! How fun to have a friend to style a table with! I often wish one of my blogging friends (or lots of them) lived nearby! The orange flower in the green vase is one of a variety of protea. Don’t you love that you can pick up colored stemware at Dollar Tree?!
Rebecca, you are Irish blessed in your friend, Meredith 🙂
The quotes are perfect for this table, and I always love to see the bright spots of orange mixed in with the green. I keeps everything playful.
I understand the frustration of the light working against you, so happy that it was in your favor this time!
Rebecca, lucky you to have such a dear, generous and talented friend! Those dishes look vintage, are they? Never have seen them before. Love those proverbs at each setting! Being a freckle face myself, it was easy to pick a favorite lol. So clever too to add those pops of orange to the table; never would have occurred to me and I really like it. Love all the ideas and inspiration shared between bloggers. Thank you for contributing your styling talents to the hop my friend.
Rebecca, what a festive, clever table. I love that you and your long time friend joined forces. The oranges are a fun idea! Love the Irish sayings, especially the one about freckles. I’m not a red head, but I had a fondness for redheads with freckles. Rare!
It’s fun hopping with you. Happy St. Pat’s Day!
Rebecca, the pops of orange is lovely. Love the Irish quotes, a lovely addition to your table. Your friend Meredith is such a good sport for teaming up together. Got a kick out of your family sneaking those treats. you cannot beat the Dollar Tree for their glassware. Fergus is so handsome and I am glad he grabbed a clementine. Happy March.
The proverbs are so very fun. Love the colors.
How fun to collaborate with a friend for setting this cute table Rebecca! I love the Irish proverbs she wrote in the Gaelic script. The pops of orange look great and it sounds like your family enjoyed your table too, by mischievously sneaking treats!
Oh, I love this, Rebecca! I agree with your statement of orange being underrated. It looks fabulous with your tablescape. Those Irish inspired quotes are terrific. Of course, my favorite has to be the one of freckles (pinned!). How sweet of Meredith to team up with you to create this eye-pleasing display. Can’t believe the faltware is plastic! You are excellent at mixing the high and low! I’m glad luck was on both yours and Fergus’ side. Everyone deserves a little luck of the Irish! Happy to be joining you on this hop, my friend.
I love the Irish sayings. Lots of laughs!!
