Green is my favorite color. I love to set the table for St. Patrick's Day dinner.
You can create mini votives by coring an apple and adding a candle.
I love the elegant simplicity of this Celtic tablecloth created with a stencil and fabric paint.
If my children are good, a leprechaun might leave a few gold coins sprinkled next to their place setting.
Continuing the simple theme is the sweet addition of a single clover into a twine tined napkin. Colcannon, a traditional Irish potato dish, is enhanced by a few drops of green food coloring.
The menu also includes corned beef and cabbage. I always make enough for corned beef sandwiches the next day~yum!
I adore Irish Soda bread. My family prefers that the caraway seed and currents not be added.
Mr. Decor loves this part of the meal. This year we might try some green beer.
The perfect finishing touch for a house full of chocoholics is chocolate Irish creme cheesecake.
I hope you enjoyed this post from the DTA March 2009 archives.
