Loving The Green

I think we are all a little Irish on St. Patty's day, at least we like to pretend we are.  Of course I'm cooking Corned Beef and Cabbage, so a green tablescape was called for too.  Definitely going for it.

I looked through the cupboards and didn't have anything with shamrocks, however I did have a few green dishes that I could add to the centerpiece and runner that I already had going.

 I pulled out my wood & rattan charger, stacked a few dishes, got out my favorite Horchow flatware, then  added an amber glass and check napkin to tie in the color scheme.

 My green bordeau plates all have a different animal.  I think all of these animals are in Ireland too, so that works for me.  A Cow.

 A Spunky Pig.

 Love this Rooster & Hen.

 And of course Bunnies are fabulous too.

Totally works with the bunny centerpiece I already had on the table.

 So, that's my GREEN IRISH table.

How about you, did you go for the Green too?

  11. Marty, what a beautiful table! Those dishes are so lovely...very unique! No green for me today...I am wearing purple since I didn't have a green shirt...but my eyes are green so I guess you could say I'm always wearing it. Funny thing is, green has always been my favorite color and I have very little of it in my closet! The corned beef & cabbage sounds wonderful...Have a happy St. Paddy's Day!
