St. Patty's Day Tablescape

Now, I really want some kudos on this tablescape!  Because I had absolutely nothing for St. Patrick's Day.  But I am not one to feel left out....so I dug through my "stuff" and came up with this tablescape.








I had a green tablecloth...Christmas....and I topped it with a white lace square table topper.  Used my gold chargers and silverware.  I used a green plaid ribbon for the napkin rings.  The centerpiece is a teapot with silk flowers of some sort.  Brass candlesticks have yellow candles.  I wished I had white, but I don't!  The plates are our everyday Corelle ware.  I did buy the gold coins and the little teddy bear from the 99 cent store.

I think it is pretty Irish looking from this ole German girl!  So have a good day and don't forget to visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for more Tablescapes.  Also linking up to Kathleen's St. Patty's Day party!

It is perfect from the plates to the gold coins. Take away the coins and you have a spring table.

Hi Ceekay, thanks for stopping by my blog and saying hi. Great tablescape, love the coins and that cute little bear. You had mentioned that you have a clock similar to mine.I have mine almost 20 years I believe it came from the JC Penny catalog. I'll be doing a post on my living room shortly. Just became your newest follower, Martina

So pretty! I love the plaid ribbon ... and I've always thought that pattern in Corelle was perfect for St. Pat's Day! Hope you are feeling good this week.

I had breast cancer so know what you are going through. So nice you have so many blogger friends rooting for you. Makes life bearable. You made a inviting and pretty table using what you had. Love the bear and cute bow.

It's a beautiful St Paddy's table, Ceekay!

LOL! Don't they say, "EVERYBODY'S Irish on St Patrick's Day"?! I am still pondering on how I want to set my St. Pat's Dinner table this year, and I AM IRISH! You did a lovely job of it Ceekay! ~tina

Tricia said...

I think you did great! I'm wondering whether I can pull off a St. Patrick's Day table myself, but at least you have some green and white dishes to start with! I love the addition of the gold coins and the plaid ribbons for the napkins!

Pretty, tablecloth, dishes and I love how you tied the napkins up! We always have a family celebration of St. Paddy's day even though we aren't Irish either. It's just fun, isn't it?

huggies to you...

What is it they say about necessity being the mother of invention? I would say you proved that here. It all came together very nicely and the gold coins are a darling idea.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Ceekay, what a great St. Patrick's day setting. I love your dishes and the added green plaid ribbon around the napkins is perfect.

So cute CeeKay! Looks like you're ready for that fun day when we're all a "wee bit" Irish!

Texas Tea Party said...

Cute St. Pat's tablescape! I am of Irish ancestry and have always loved St. Patrick's Day. I loved you shopped your home. Just add the song "When Irish Eyes are Smiling", for they will when seeing your table.

For somebody who had nothing for St. Patrick's Day, you sure came up with a pretty St. Patty's table! The china is perfect, and what a cute little bear. laurie
