St. Patrick’s day celebration tablescape

Today I am sharing a pretty table set for the upcoming St. Patrick’s day celebration next week.

The toile green table cloth and the Spode green transfer ware plates were the inspiration for this table.

The shamrock plants and pillar candles as a centerpiece completed the picture and everything else fell into place.

I covered the shamrock grower pots in kraft paper bags and the assortment of pillars include different sizes and colors to add depth variety.

The emerald water goblets are a perfect accent for St. Patrick’s day vibes and are complimented by Irish cut crystal.  The Waterford crystal is from our wedding registry and our pattern is Ballymore, which has since been discontinued.

Waterford has really cut down on the available selection of collections from when we registered a quarter of a century ago.  They have hung their hat on the Lismore pattern which I guess is a smart move since it was | is the most popular pattern.  Lismore is the pattern my in-laws own so we decided to choose something slightly different although it’s very similar.

The plate stack starts with a distressed cream charger which blends in nicely between the tablecloth backdrop and paper bags centerpiece.  It blends but yet sets a footprint for the Spode green transfer ware dinner plate, which is topped off with a Limoges accent plate with the most delicate green border.  It’s all finished off with a napkin ring place card.

The napkins are from my parent’s collection which I rediscovered when I cleaned out the linen closet, and you can read all about it here{linen closet organization}.  The napkins are monogramed with my parent’s initials which make them all that more special to me.

I created the label place card for the napkin rings on the computer which is a sweet little detail for each place setting.  And the last detail at each place setting is our sterling which I always pull out for special occasions and it was part of our wedding gift from my parents.

And in other news, I just bought a corned beef brisket for next week.  I have never made corned beef and cabbage and I am going to give it a go this year.  Why not?!  I’ll let you know how it goes.

My mother made a delicious corned beef and cabbage.  She actually included sweet potatoes and turnips with the regular potatoes and all of it mixed together was super yum!  I have to research recipes since I don’t have my mom’s recipe but I am excited to try this.

Through the years I have come to realize that not all corned beef and cabbage is created equal and my mother spoiled me for most.  It’s a meal I only indulge on St. Patrick’s day IF I do.  I actually can’t remember the last time I had it.

Once again it’s a holiday | celebration we will be spending at home with just the four of us but it has become the new norm.  Things are looking better for the future and hopefully we will be gathering more and more with more folks…slowly.

Are you doing anything special for St. Patrick’s day or is it just a normal day like any other for you?

  1. I just love the bags on those shamrock plants, and those napkins! As someone who is mostly Irish we always celebrated when I was growing up. Now that 2 kids are at college and it’s just me and my husband and son we don’t really celebrate it. I used to give the kids surprises on the morning of, before school (like gold chocolate coins!) Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm and Happy St. Patrick’s Day! xo Kathleen

  2. Hi Kathleen- I am sure your kids loved all those surprises. And you loved doing them as a mom. 🤩 We don’t usually do anything special either, but I made corned beef and cabbage for the first time last night. It wasn’t bad. I made it with a bunch of root veggies, potatoes, sweet potato, turnip, carrots. XO- MJ
