Happy Shamrock Day

It's time again for the wearing of the green.   Being a redhead with fair skin, freckles and green eyes I feel sure I'm a wee bit Irish.  Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day!  

The table is dressed in greens, golds and loaded with shamrocks. 

I used a bronze metal votive twig tree in the center of the table.  It's loaded with kelly green and lime shamrocks, hats and gold coins. 

I found the green and white drinking glasses last year at a local thrift store.  I knew they would be perfect for St. Patty's Day.  I've had the cut glass shamrock for many years.  I believe it belonged to my Grandmother Smith.  

I used the shamrock wine charms I made on the Irish Coffee mugs.  

The little leprechaun is perched in a beautiful kelly green glass bowl surrounded by shamrocks.   

The server decorations.

The plate stack.  

The gold clay carved chargers are from Old Time Pottery.   The dinner plates are MacKenzie Childs Courtly Check.   The shamrock plates are from HomeGoods several years ago.  I placed the Irish Coffee mug and sauce on top.

  1. Once again, you've outdone yourself! The black/white checked plates are a nice break from all the green, and play well with the other pieces you've used. I love those drinking glasses, as well as the Irish coffee mugs, and of course the shamrock plates. And your centerpiece is darling. Happy St. Patrick's Day, Catherine!

    1. Thank you so much Joy! It's a very green and festive table this week. :) Happy St. Patrick's Day to you too! I'm sure you are looking forward to Spring next week and warmer temps up that way.

  2. I always love your stuff! This is fabulous!

  3. Great place, wonderful food with modern ambiance and comfortable seating with plenty of room. It is now probably one of the best party venue in my list. Perfect food, great decor and vibrant atmosphere.

  5. I'm quite partial to green as I'm Irish myself!Love this display. My favorite is the Irish coffee mugs. Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm! xo Kathleen|Our Hopeful Home

    1. Thank you Kathleen. I love St. Patrick's Day. I really think I have a bit of Irish blood, but I'm the only redhead in the family so who knows for sure. One of these days I'm going to do one of those DNA test to see. I found those mugs while thrifting for plates a couple years ago. I just love using them and especially on the St. Patrick's Day table.

  6. So much fun! Thanks for sharing at #HomeMattersParty
