St. Patty's Day Tablescape

Posted by Picasa
Happy Monday to you! As many of you know, St. Patty's Day is a very big deal at our house and in our family. Not only do we wear green, I decorate the table and the family eats a traditional Irish-American meal of Corned Beef, Cabbage and Potatoes. I thought I'd share my tablescape with you today; enjoy.

I thought about trying to get some of my mom's Spode out of boxes but decided against it; after all we were eating at our youngest daughter's house. What fun we had-I shared stories/tales passed on to me from my mom about life in Ireland and the Leprechauns mischief. I found this little dish last year and loved it; I don't have many pieces to decorate with, so it made its way home with me.

This sweet vase is Belleek and a gift from my brother and sister-in-love, purchased when they were there two years ago. I love it!!!
We had a wonderful weekend; I hope you did too.
Happy Day!
Noreen & Hunter


  1. Looks wonderful and I LOVE your vase! Glad you enjoyed it and a good week-end! Hope your week is a good one too! HUGS

  2. Looks like you had a very nice St. Patrick's Day. No green for me yesterday ... DH and I wore orange and blue, T#1's swim team colors. And no corned beef and cabbage for us either ... I would have ordered a corned beef sandwich for lunch, but the place we stopped didn't have it on their menu.

  3. Sounds like yummy fun. I think we had salmon for dinner. Still good but not very Irish. MOM said maybe if it was not on a Sunday we would have went an Irish way. But Salmon on the grill is A-OK with me. I love it. I would fall over backwards if MOM made such a lovely table as you did. She is just not into it, at least when it is just the two of us.

  4. I love the Irish tales that have been passed down. I have a few pieces of Belleek, too, and just love it. I still believe in leprechauns---don't you?;>) xo Diana

  5. We don't do much for St. Patrick's Day. But you are giving me some inspiration.

  6. The table looks beautiful - bet it was a wonderful meal and time together. Mom has a collection of Belleek - it is well protected from us in a glass cabinet.

    Happy Belated St. Paddy's Day.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  7. What a beautiful table Noreen! My grandparents were born in Ireland so we always go out so my husband can eat his corned beef! I am not such a good Irish girl as I don't like corned beef...

    If you are still having problems with feedly...let me know...I received some tips in my mail from the CEO for anyone still having problems.

  8. What a beautiful table! And set with love and prayer, too. :)
