Happy St Patrick’s Day my dear friends. “May the saddest day of your future be no worse than the happiest day of your past.”. Now that we have the blessing out of the way time to eat, or at least sit at our beautiful St Patrick’s Day Table.
Setting the Table for St Patrick’s Day
My table always starts with the tablecloth, OK not always but often lol. For m the tablecloth is truly the canvas that sets the picture. Last year I had it in my head that I needed a new tablecloth and napkins.
So a quick search on Amazon for a green and white checked cloth with matching napkins netted me a perfect set. While I did have a very similar cloth it was smaller and did not have the matching napkins. I do love matchy at times. For 2022, well I do love the tableloth and it was ony used once.
Next up was chargers, white or green chargers well not this year. I found the perfect fake turf panels and I decided to get creative. I was sticking with the 4 leaf clover napkin and the turf seemed so perfect. A cool base to allow the napkin design to stand out.
Using my everyday square dishes allowed a little creativity. Juliard silverware formed the basics of the tablescape.
My Luck of the Irish Tablescape
This time last year we were still in the Orange zone, kind of ironic that on this day of green we are affected by the Orange don’t ya think. Fast forward to 2022 and finally it appears our Province and Country are back to normal. Our pubs and bars are open and there is no patron limit.
I am ready to celebrate the Green but it’s a “school night”, aka work is calling the next day. I am opting for a pared down celebration for now.
Sharing a few irish cocktails, sitting at a most awesome table and eating whatever Kent decides to cook lol.
Let’s make it Green
Now that our canvas is all set, it is time to make it stand out, How to create the perfect St Patrick’s Day table. I always start with the center and work out. Starting with some fun flowers. 2022 I opted to use three of my Nana’s bud vases to create a row of carnations.
Candle sticks and wine bottle lights seemed the perfect addition. Next up a sprinkling of leprechan coins I found at the dollarstore. I oped for plain white knife rests so as to not distract from my unique chargers.
Pots of Gold for St Patrick’s Day Table
Each place setting had wine glass I later remembered to add a few beer glasses, I mean hello Guiness. I ordered a few leprechaun pots for each place setting, filling them green candy treats (not shown).
I also added a few glitter pots filled with gold coins as a fun addition. No practical value at all but who needs practical on this special day.
I added a fun shamrock to the center of each Clover Leaf napkin and my table was ready.
How is your table looking?
