Happy St. Patrick's Day, Dining With Leprechaun's!
Top O' the morn' to ya'! So glad you could stop by for a bit of St. Patrick's Day celebration. We will be dining on the usual Corned Beef and Cabbage with potatoes and onions. For dessert we will be topping it all off with Irish Creme cupcakes.
To get the table ready for the leprechauns to visit I seacrched high and low for a shamrock plant for them to take cover under.
These salad plates are my newest finds form good old EBay. The are Staffordshire Cloverdale pattern. I haven't been able to locate any other pieces or any information on them. Their description stated they were form the 30's or 40's.
I paired them with the usual Gibson Claremont dinner plates and napkin rings. My new Oneida Brooch pattern seemed to be the best fit for flatware.
Here are a few coins for you to pay the leprechauns. Maybe they will leave you in peace to enjoy your traditional fare. They might even behave long enough to join us!
I am linking up with Kathleen for the 3rd Annual St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl at Cuisine Kathleen. Also I cant miss Tablescape Thursday with Susan at Between Naps On The Porch. Thank you both ladies. I cant wait to see all the St. Paddy's Day finery. Have a wonderful celebration!!!
