St. Paddy's Day

Let's Party!!

 It is time for St. Patrick's Day, the table is set.

The leprechauns are ready to play a tune with their instruments. One even brought his pot of gold coins. Are you smart enough to catch him and make him share his treasure with you?
The shades of green represent the coming of Spring, the candles and their holders are from clear to white, spring green, grassy green, chartreuse and forest green.
Your place is set for you, so sit and enjoy the party.
The leprechaun is dancing a gig as the music floats through the air.
A lovely luncheon plate will be used to serve the traditional corn beef and cabbage. 

Stepping on the bowler derby, he carries the Irish tune with his horn and sing "O' Danny Boy".

The perfect china for St. Paddy's Day is Copeland Spode's "Shamrock". I love the embossed pattern of green.

The pipe, the pipe is calling O' Danny Boy to the table. 
The lovely pale shade of green in the linens are  balanced by the green in the napkin.
A bold green  charger grounds the Shamrock china with its embossed leaves.
The little mouse is tempting you to dine with him and his golden coins.


This is St Paddy's day, green tea is the only choice to be served in the wonderful cup and saucer.
My husband's favorite drink will be served, the bold green of Mountain Dew!!

Were you tempted by the stacks of gold or the hearty fare of the Irish menu??
Glad you came for a visit and sat at the table to celebrate St. Patty's Day.

What a fun table you have set! The leprechauns are too cute. I've never seen your Spode china before. The pattern is lovely and you can use it all year long (not too "shamrocky").Thank you for visiting me today and have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day! ~Nora
