Predominantly Green!

Let's have some Irish fun and join Kathleen's St. Patrick's Day party at

I am also linking with Marty for Tabletop Tuesday at

I am excited to attend Kathleen's St. Patrick's party. But I had to improvise because I do not have anything St. Patricky, except for some napkins. Kathleen said I can use anything green. She said I can even have John just pose in his green scrubs, lol. But I'll try to do something better. I hope you like what I came out with.

I took down my green Bordallo Pinheiro plates that were stored all the way up in the highest kitchen cabinet to use.

I googled for St. Patrick images, printed a few, cut them up and used them as part of my centerpiece. I used my dragonfly name plate holders to hold them upright. I like that hat!

I sent all the beads that I got from the Mardi Gras parade with my daughter to give to my granddaughter AJ, but I found a green one in the garage and I added it to dress the table.

I took my Kosta Boda green and blue glass tulip, that I brought home from Sweden a few years ago, and added it to my centerpiece.

The flowers are what is left of the bouquet I placed in the guest room when my daughter visited.

Pinzon "Parsley" plate chargers were from Ebay.

Bordallo Pinheiro bunny luncheon plates were bought from Home Goods in Clearwater, FL.
Bordallo Pinheiro Bunny salad plates. My stepdaughter bought them from Home Goods in southern FL and shipped them to me.

I've had these plates for more than a year now and I finally got to use them.

I am not sure she is Irish but I want her to hold my clover napkins cause she has green in her outfit.

Same with her!

Silver plated flatware, I can't remember the pattern but I have it written somewhere but I am too lazy to check:-(

Thanks to Kathleen for hosting this special St. Patrick's event. And thanks to Marty also for hosting Tabletop Tuesday and I thank each and everyone of you for visiting. Be sure you go to their sites and check them out too.

Boy, Christine, you made a great St. Pat's table. I love the rabbit plates and the ones that have a parsley design in them. Great table! I'll be going to Kathleen's tomorrow with one of my own designed china made at my hubby's Ceramic fact., way back. I'll be looking for yours lovely lady.

You did good! As much Irish as I have in me, I should have come up with a table setting for the event.

Very cute plates, Christine...I am so glad you got to use them They are fitting for St. Paddy's Day and spring! I love the napkin rings, too! They are wearing green so that is good enough!!

Are you going to have corned beef and cabbage on Thursday? It is one of my favorite meals. I am 3/4 Irish, so I HAVE to have it! lol!


Marlis said...

Oh Christine! The parsley chargers are sooo cool. I love those. Perfect with the Bordello bunny plates. I love your ST. Paddy's table. Very clever to print off some designs. I didn't have anything either, so i just went with green. I love your dark green glasses too. Happy St. Patrick's day!

Sarah said...

Christine, your table is darling. I adore those parsley chargers, and they are perfect with the Bordello plates. I have one pitcher in the Bordello bunny pattern. Your plates are darling. I hadn't seen the plates in this pattern. Great table to celebrate St. Paddy's Day. ~ Sarah

Your table is beautiful, Christine! It reminded me that I have some of those green bunny plates somewhere and had not even thought twice about using them for St. Patrick's day!

What a delightful table. I love everything from the napkin rings to the plates - but especially the chargers.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Christine, Your table is PERFECT for St. Pat's Day! Absolutely love both the bunny and the parsley plates.The centerpiece looks very appropriate for the day, as well. Now all that you need is for John to sit down in his scrubs! LOL

Very nice St. Patty's table and I do like those bunny plates--I feel a trip to HG coming on! Also love your centerpiece and all the goodies on the tray. Linda

Shelia said...

Hi Christine! No St. Paddy decor? LOL OH, honey, your table is so gorgeous. I love all of your pretty dishes! I have those sweet green bunny plates too. You're just amazing! You have the touch, Christine, and it's green today! ;)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Richard Cottrell said...

This is the best one I have seen yet. For someone who says she doesn't have any St.P's stuff, I think you did a grand job. I so do love seeing all your beautiful china and crystal. I used to be crazy over both, but after I moved a few times, said that is enough. So hard to pack and so heavy. LOL. RC and Sissy

Willow said...

What a lovely table you have set. The little girs are so cute and the bunny plates. Happy St. Paddys Day

Maggie said...

Christine, your table setting is stunning!
The plates are adorable and I would want to use them all the time, not keep them up high and out of the way.
Now, where's the photo of John in his green scrubs?
We have to see it!

Gail @ Faithfulness Farm said...

A STUNNING table -- loving those bunny plates :)


Traci said...

All of that green is soooo pretty!

Dining Delight said...

You did a terrific job "improvising" with non-themed items! Very creative to print the images - love that hat in the centerpiece! The parsley chargers are wonderful and go great with the bunny plates (would look perfect for Easter too!) You pulled it altogether and made a fabulous St. Pat's Day table....although seeing John in his scrubs might have been fun too! LOL!


lvroftiques said...

As always Christine so pretty!! And girlfriend I LOVE those bunny plates!! Vanna


I wish I had those green gobblets for my St Pat's tablescape at Kathleen's...they're beautiful, your charming and talented hand is always present.


Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

What a lovely St. Patricks Day table you have set, Christine. I love your parsley plates as well as the bunny ones! How pretty they look together! Lovely green goblets too! I like how you improvised with your greens; aren't you the smart one! Thanks for sharing a very festive table.

Oh Christine, this is all so pretty. I love your green tablescape. Everything looks fabulous. You always set the most beautiful tables. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Oh Christine, those chargers are wonderful! I could be in your tablescape, because when I saw those chargers, I was green with envy! Your table looks so pretty, and I can't believe you've had those beautiful Bordallo dishes for a year and haven't used them. The little girls in green are so cute and look great with your napkins. laurie

Kathleen said...

Christine, you have tons of green, in fact I am green with envy! What a great job you did, and those napkin rings give it an International flair, LOL!
I love your bunny plates, and I down right covet your parsley chargers.
Thanks so much for joining in the blog crawl!

Scribbler said...

Your improvisation is great! Your Bordallo collection is so pretty. I have never seen that here, in all my years of shopping HG.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I think it came out nice. Those napkin rings are so cute. I also love the parsley plates.
