Shamrock Tablescape

I’ve been itching to do this tablescape since last year’s St. Patrick’s Day after holiday sales.  I love the shade of green that I used.  It’s such a happy shade of green.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

The idea for this tablescape started with the mugs that I got on sale at Walmart.  I love the bright shade of green that is on them.  And when I found the shot glasses at the Dollar Tree, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

Shot & a beer anyone?

I started with a dark green tablecloth covered with a cream lace tablecloth.  The place mats are actually kitchen towels that I found at the Dollar Tree.  I just folded them in half to fit the table.  I used clear glass plates so that the shamrocks showed through.  White handled flatware & white napkins kept the white & green theme.  The napkin rings are actually white ceramic napkin rings that I covered  with shamrock paper napkins that were just taped on.

A lucky coin was put in the corner to wish every one a little luck.

The centerpiece for this tablescape is a simple vignette.  I started with a small white tray that I covered with more of the shamrock paper napkins.  To that I added an Irish family.  These lovelies belonged to my Aunt Millie & were given to me when she passed.  I cherish them.  The ‘candles’ are battery operated votive candles that fit perfectly in the shot glasses.

I like the way the vignette goes with the place setting.

A few gold coins were added to the sides of the vignette to bring a little more Irish luck.
