This tablescape only cost $5 since I already had most of the items needed!
Inspiration for the tablescape started with this hat, purchased for a dollar at the Dollar Tree!
The napkins are little shamrock tea towels, also purchased at Dollar Tree. I bought four of them.
I placed these little derby hats on top
The chargers are dark green. They were from Target a few years ago.
The plates were from Dollar Tree many years ago. The crystal-look flatware was from Ross a few years ago. The dark green goblets were purchased back in the 70s!!
The little Leprechaun was from Michael's last year, isn't he cute?
A little pot of gold and some lucky coins complete the centerpiece.
So there you go - an easy, inexpensive Irish tablescape!
A friend gave me the beautiful Battenburg lace tablecloth about 20 years ago. It is 100% cotton. Every time I use it I have to iron it and vow that I will buy another white tablecloth that is polyester so I won't have to iron it, but never have!
I have even ironed it with it on the table to try to eliminate some of the wrinkles!
Wonder how much it costs to send it to the cleaners to be pressed??
I think I'll name this tablescape "Hat-titude!"
I've never made Irish soda bread before, I was thinking about trying it this year
Or maybe I'll just buy some from Publix (our grocery store!)
I also must remember to buy pistachio pudding to make the Watergate salad I always like to have on St. Patrick's Day because it's green, and because it's good! My husband isn't crazy about it though!
We are having family for a few days (on spring break) so I'll have someone to share this tablescape with! Our granddaughter, Elisabeth, will also be here!
Happy St. Paddy's Day!
Choose your place at the table!
I've never made corned beef and cabbage, maybe I'll try it this time! I think I'm afraid to!!
I'm not Irish, but I love to decorate with the greens, it's such a happy color!
May you have the luck of the Irish! Or better yet, just be blessed in every way!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
