Tablescape Thursday

Tablescape Thursday! Time for another fun day sharing pretty tablescapes with our tablescaping friends! Thanks to Susan for hosting, go here to see many more!

I wanted to use these spring green petal salad plates and tablecloth for a St. Patrick's Day tablescape, but was a little concerned that it isn't the Irish kelly green.


When I found these faux shamrocks at Michael's for 66 cents each, I knew they would tie it all together. These shamrocks match the plates and tablecloth very nicely!

Some of the shamrocks have a little glitter on them.
I found the ceramic basket at a craft show about 15 years ago.

The artist crafted the 3-D roses on all the items she was selling. I fell in love with them!

I decided to make this a shamrock tea party and use the pretty tea cups.
I always offer water in goblets, mainly because of our warm FL weather.

These are Dollar Tree "crystal" goblets!

I've had these sheer white napkins a long time. Those aren't shamrocks, but there's a three-leaf stem on them!

The napkin rings are faux crystal

I'm loving using the inexpensive "crystal-look" flatware.

Shall I place the napkins on top of the plates, or not?

I think I like them better without.



I usually always layer my tablecloths.

I also placed this little crystal bird beside the centerpiece.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my Shamrock Tea Party tablescape, won't you join us here:
Bring a friend!




May your life always be like a teapot –

Overflowing to warm the soul. Irish Blessing



Have a wonderful day!
God Bless.

We are going on Spring Break, but are taking the laptop (and visiting family) and I hope to do a couple of posts while we're gone!

I love the green and white. Love the unusual shape of the green plate. I need to find some white plates with the cut out border. I love those.

Great table, love those green plates! Really nice teacups and saucers.

Hi Katherine! Those green petal salad plates are really great. Love them and I like how you put the table together around them. Very nice...

Love the tablescape, especially the pretty napkins. The green salad plates are so pretty, too; and that little crystal bird is adorable.

Kimberly said...

That is so pretty. I also have to tell you...When I see your photo I just want to give you a hug. You just have that look *family*.

Have a blessed day Katherine!

How pretty! I love a green and white combination - so soothing to me. Love how you layered the tablecloths so that sweet little "petticoat" shows! That basket is so pretty - I bet you find many ways to use it on your pretty tables. Have a wonderful Spring break!

Katherine, this is just gorgeous. I love the tablecloth and plate that match so perfectly. The salad plate is such a beautiful shape. Your rose bowl is so pretty with the green inside. What a lovely find. The crystal flatware and napkins rings are so pretty. I don't think I've seen those before, but I love them. As always, just gorgeous. Hugs, Marty

Beautiful table Katherine! I love the little shamrocks! Have fun on SB!

Nancy said...

Love the little shamrocks...I'll have to stop at Michaels too and see if they have some here. I really like the way you layered your tablecloth too and I love the color of green. Very elegant and pretty!

Mimi said...

Your table really speaks of spring, love the green and white.

Hi Katherine,

Your green salad plates are beautiful and very unusual. I was pleasantly surprised that your pretty stemware came from Dollar Tree. That's an amazing value. I think you made the right decision not to put the napkins on the plates (they're too pretty to cover!).

The sheer napkins add an elegant touch. Nicely done!

Regards,
Bill

A very pretty table. The leaves on the napkins remind me of a branch of tea leaves; so it is perfect for a tea party. I recently saw your green glasses you shared a couple posts ago at an antique show. Did look at the price, but I knew they were the same as yours.

Lovely post..such a pretty spring table for St. Pat's.

Katherine, I love your tablescape, and I think you did all of the Irish very proud with it! :-) Lovely as can be...

XO,

Kathryn @ Bonafide Southern said...

How lovely! Just perfect for St. Patrick's Day. I love your Dollar Tree "crystal" and the napkin rings are great. Thanks for sharing.

Rettabug said...

Oh, be still my wee little Irish ♥!
This is a perfectly elegant table for St. Patrick's Day, Katherine. Your sheer napkins are exquisite & I would never have known the stemware to be $Store...it looks beautiful!

I really, REALLY like those white cups & saucers, too. Anything with that lacey, cutwork edge calls to me.
Your rose basket is lovely, too. Wish I'd seen those faux shamrock sprigs at Michaels. They match perfectly & you can use them year after year.

fondly,
Rett

ps: Ms. C is coming for a sleep-over & we're making GREEN (really lemon)cheese cake for DH's birthday. I hope to get pics of her using the ♥ shaped measuring cups & spoons. :D

Simply lovely table setting! I love the edge of the cloth, the delicate napkins and the plates are beautiful.

Hi Katherine, this is so pretty and totally fresh. I have the green plates you are showing and I think they are so lovely!

You've done a great job.

Katherine, I love this tablescape! Great idea with the centerpiece, and I can't get over those Dollar store glasses. But most of all I love the tableclothes draped together- very pretty.

Megan said...

Katherine--Beautiful tablescape. Even though you used the green for St. Patrick's Day--it looks so "Spring" with the greens and whites. I love those napkins--gorgeous! And I'm drooling after getting a peek at that cutwork tablecloth. Have a wonderful time traveling and visiting.
