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!!!

Your St. Patricks day table is so pretty. Love the clover in the center, and the pretty shamrock dishes and all the lovely green and white, cute idea for the candy coins in each bowl. Very nice,
I always like to put some candy at each place too.
Blessings, Nellie

Deb, I loved your table! Those placemats are the absolute cutest, and I love how you found those neat clover leaf plates... perfect! And the touch of the real shamrocks is spot on. Love it! You did a great job with your 'scape. Hmmm... maybe if I had paid the leprechauns, they would have left my table alone, you think???

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you...

XO,

Sheila :-)

I have been to your blog several times. But tonite I hopped over from Chickens In The Road. Isn't that a great site?

What I love is your table settings. I have lots of holiday dishes and stuff but really haven't been too thrilled about getting them out lately. But thanks to you, the last few occasions I got off my duff and actually decorated and it felt good. So I really appreciate that about you! Thanks so much for sharing, Marla
