St. Patrick's Table and Spring Cloche Party, 2012


It's Party Time! I hope you get to visit both Kathleen at http://www.cuisinekathleen.com/ for her 4th annual St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl and Marty's Spring Cloche party at 
 http://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com. I hope you don't mind me integrating the 2.





I decided to use a cloch for my centerpiece.


Napkins were from Homegoods in Fort Myers.


I have had these 2 glasses, probably from TJ Maxx in Baton Rouge.


The salad plates and small bowls are also from HG in Fort Myers. I used white square, actually more like a trapezoid plate chargers. I think I got them from Ross a long time ago and I just pulled out my green dinner plates out of a baroque style set.



I don't know what the nationality of the doll napkin ring is but today, she is Irish.

Now, I would like to show you more cloches. This one's in my black china cabinet in the kitchen. I just store some dessert plates in it.

My hen cloche that I have displayed on my kitchen island right now.


There she is at the end of the white plates.


A pastry cloche with white ceramic promegranates in them. I got the promegranates at Williams Sonoma from their clearance table. I knew I could use them one day. I also moved the glass box under the kitchen cabinet. It used to be on the kitchen island but I moved a rack with white plates there.


Inside the glass box or can I call it terrarium, is a mini tea set resembling a Quimper. It is unmarked so I am not sure who the maker is.

I took out one promegranate for you to see. I think one of the ones left inside the cloche is a tomato.


Thanks for these fun parties, Kathleen and Marty and thanks to all who visited especially the ones who left comments. I really appreciate it.

 Happy St. Patrick's everyone!
