Irish setting for Two!

Just a small scaled table for two.  It seems like where we live, St. Paddy's day is not a big enough event to have a large variety of goods to buy.  I looked all over and there isn't hardly anything related to the green.  For next year, I think I need to shop online to find some great accessories.



The Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage plates are perfect for this holiday.  I added green chargers and our artichoke plates to complete the green theme, along with green flatware.  Do you think I have enough green?  Maybe too much! There will be no pinching in this house!



A Leprechaun snuck in on our table.  He looks friendly enough.....For years, we all thought our family was Irish.  It turns out, we are Scottish....Blessings to you.  May you all find your pot of gold.
Here's my little great-grandson, Jacob who is joining the Irish tradition, wearing green.  He looks a little sleepy....LOL


Happy St. Patrick's day everyone.

  1. Linda, Cute table and you can never have too much green! :) I know how hard it is to find things for St. Patrick's Day. It's the same where I live. LOVE your Bordallo Pinheiro plates. I have quite a few cabbage plates, too, and love them.

  3. Love all the green! I don't think you can have too much especially for St. Patricks Day! I had no luck locally with dishes- just small accent stuff. Have a Happy St. Patricks Day- they say we're all Irish that day!

  8. I LOVE that you thought you were Irish only to find out you are Scottish. That's okay- the Irish are kissing cousins with the Scottish! That looks wonderful-especially considering you don't have much to choose from out there. I grew up in an Irish community and am not kidding when I say I believed in leprechauns until I was at least 12---or...maybe I STILL believe in them. xo Diana

  10. My family is both Irish and Scottish, Linda - that must be the reason we get along so well! I love this table! You must have some Irish whiskey to start off the meal as well! How fun!

  14. Hi Linda! What fun here today..love those plates! I'm not one to do too much this St. Patrick's Day although you've got me thinking I might pick something up today;)

    Our home sold in three days and we are off and running with the house reconstruction project. I am also planning to switch over to WordPress and I'm just stalling.. because I'm about the ripple effect.. You do own your blog/domain when you switch and I'm looking forward to that.

    Hope you are well and have a wonderful day! xxleslie

  15. Oh Linda! HELLO! When I live in Boston, wow, what a party during this time! Boston really knows how to celebrate St Patrick's Day! And you do too....your green is glorious. I cannot decide still which color is my favorite: blue or green! Either way, they say SPRING!

    Thank you dear and beautiful Linda, for coming to visit! I am so happy to be writing for an in-print magazine! Be well and enjoy! Anita

  19. Very pretty! The cutest thing though is your great grandson! I love that red hair and the big blue eyes.
    (Your table is pretty too. We have the same napkins.)

  20. Very lovely table and I am a huge fan of the Bordallo plates, I own several myself. Your grandson is the cutest leprechaun I have ever seen. My grandpa was Irish so my family does St Patty's to the max. I have a hard time finding cute decor as well. I have been collecting vintage St Patricks items for years and I make a lot of my own decor. Irish blessing to you.

  21. Oh Linda, this tablescape is just fabulous. Love the photo of your sweet little Grandson with his lovely red hair.. The colors you use on the the table are perfect. You got it girl!! I do see your little shamrocks on the your plate. I like every detail of your setting. I always love stopping by to see what you have to show and this is one of my favorites. Thanks so much for sharing. I hope you and Paul have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day..

  23. You could have a mess on the table - as if ;) - and put that last pic and we'd all ahhhh and ohhh of how gorgeous and sweet it is. Luck of the Irish to be that good looking... even in a Scot ahahahahah
    I love how you always throw the coins in the table... today I saw several setting for St. Patrick's and I keep thinking where I'd seen it - I love that touch.
    Happy St. Pat's, Dear Linda, and many Blessings to you and your loved ones.

  24. Jacob is just ADORABLE! Your table is very festive. Better to go with greens and whites that you have, so much of the stuff they sell for St. Pat's is not great,. If you are ever near an Irish import shop, they may have some nice things.
    Thanks so much for joining the blog crawl. You are in my daily prayers.
