Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Are you wearing a wee bit o’ green?
Over the weekend I created a tablescape inspired by the holiday but didn’t feature a single leprechaun or four leaf clover.
This way it can be enjoyed for a week or two instead of just a few days.
Keep reading to see a lovely tablecloth.
I began with a tablecloth that I found at an estate sale probably 3 or 4 years ago. The bright and happy embroidery colors reminded me of the Irish flag~ green, white and orange.
The table was set for a Saturday morning breakfast.
Of course an Irish themed breakfast must include a spot of tea and perhaps a bit of clotted cream and jam for the scones.
I adore these teeny tiny tureens I found years ago at a Lennox outlet. I’ve used them to serve all kinds of jams and sauces.
For those with a sweet tooth these antique silver bird themed tongs work well to add a sugar cube to a cup of tea.
The centerpiece began with a few crystal glasses nestled into an porcelain open weave basket.
I wish you could smell these softly scented ivory and pale peach roses.
Here are a few other Irish themed posts you might enjoy.
Beannachtam na Feile Padraig! (Happy St. Patrick's Day!)
Come back tomorrow for a breakfast favorite.
