I don't have a drop of Irish blood, however, my sainted husband. 'himself', is half Irish - the better half my
mother -in-law would say, so I do consider it a family centered holiday.
Although I would love a vast collection of Bellek, I am sorry to say - I don't own a piece! I normally rely on the greens and creams I have from other collections.
This year I stumbled upon a cute set of salad plates that sport pretty green Shamrocks!
So - my tablescape, will be 'Wearin' the Green"!
Welcome to ...
The St. Patricks Day Luncheon
I could not seem to find any napkins that had a Celtic feel -
so I bought some fabric from Joanns and made my own
I took my accent cues from the gold coins
and added the gold chargers for a bit more formality.
I love how you can see the little Shamrock under
the Anchor cut glass soup bowl
These little salad plates set
the St. Pattys Day tone -
a wonderful addition!

Fortunately, I have a number of green stems
for wine and water.
These are the perfect shade of green.

The buffet is set for
after dinner Irish Coffee ... Yum!
Ready for dessert! Hmmm.
What should I serve?
Thank you all for dropping by.
I will leave you with a snippet of the Irish Prayer....
May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
The rain fall soft upon your fields,
and until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
