I am Irish on St. Patrick's Day!

Kathleen of Let's Dish is having a St. Patrick celebration party. Since I am Irish on that day, there is no way I would miss it.
 I started to think green. What would be more green than my Bordallo Pinheiro bunny dishes? Well, it's almost spring too so bunnies are starting to hop on my tables. I topped the plate layers with plastic leprechaun hats from the Dollar store. They were 5 for $1 so I was able to put on on my majolica style vase too.

 I won the green plate chargers from Ebay. There were 12 of them but 2 arrived broken. UPS or USPS (can't remember which one now)was asking for so many things in filing for a claim and the seller kept bouncing the responsibility back to me when I had no information so I just gave up. I was still happy cause I have 10 perfect ones. I just did not leave her a feedback because I do not like giving negative ones unless they are really, really bad.

A duck gravy saucer.
 The ceramic napkin rings were from Williams Sononma on clearance from a few years ago.

 I bought these 4 little bowls from Homegoods while I was in Florida, perfect for dipping sauces. I love that store, one reason we bought our home there, it is only a 4 min drive from it, lol. Well, it is also next door to my daughter's house, an added bonus.

I can't remember where I bought the cabbage S & P shakers. I've had them for a while but forgot about them until I saw them again while looking for something else in the kitchen cabinet.

 A clover teapot, again from HG. I have no cups nor sugar and creamer set in the same pattern so I mixed them with other greens that I have.

I hope you enjoyed my Irish table even though I am a Fil-Am gal. Thanks for stopping by and thanks to all the hostesses of these fun parties.

I love your table! I'm of Scotch Ulster decent, and I think you nailed the spirit of the day. You are my Irish sister at heart! :D

I really love the little shamrock dipping bowls and W-S napkin rings.

I love your Irish table, Christine!

You have the perfect dishes for this holiday, and this table looks so good that I feel sure Saint Patrick, himself, would be honored!



Chubby Chieque said...

I am always enjoying in your home.

OMG! I never seen plates with clovers to celebrate St. Paddy in Sweden.

The closer I can get is to gather my green dishes :-(

Happy Monday Ate Xine.

Beautiful table for St. Paddy's Day, Christine. xo

I love this Christine! You have such a great way with mixing and matching your dishes. I love the little hats and the pretty set up you have for tea.

I am 3/4 Irish and 1/4 German. And a proud American! :)


Tea in Texas said...

Christine, glad you are celebrating St. Patrick's Day, too! I love your green majolica china and the chargers are so beautiful. The delivery of china is always a surprise when you open the package for you never know if it will arrive safely. I love your finds from HG and I am also only about 1 mile away. My St. Patrick's Day table has some finds from HG, too. I just love your clever accessories for this tablescape. Have a delightful week!


Antiques And Teacups said...

Yep...everyone is Irish this week! I love your setting! Wonderful! So sad about the plates though. All the shamrocks are so cute! Were you born in the PI? I was anexchange student there when I was 15-16 in Dagupan City in Pangasinan.
Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea.

Martha's Favorites said...

You have out done yourself this week. The table is amazing. Love the shamrocks. Have a wonderful week. Blessings, Martha

Sarah said...

Perfect, Christine! I have green Bordallo Pinheiro in the cabbage leaf pattern. I like these chargers with the pointed leaves. Working on my table this evening. ;-)

Diane said...

Christine, I did enjoy your post! We are all Irish on St. Patrick's Day, aren't we! Love all of your green and I have the same round green box with the bird on top! It is so distressing, when we get a bad seller on eBay, isn't it? I had a similar experience when a seller wanted me to be responsible for his mistake. That is not legal on eBay, but I had a sick grandchild and did not fight it. However, I was not happy. So glad that your other chargers arrived in good condition!!

Your Irish table is fantastic, right down to smallest details.

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Christine, your Irish tablescape is wonderful! I love the bunny plates and the chargers. You thought of everything. Thank you for sharing and joining me for tea.

Christine, I love your St. Patrick's Day tablescape. I love green -- maybe that's why I like St. Patrick's Day. Cabbage salt and pepper shakers would go good with my corned beef and cabbage! :D Happy St. Patrick's Day and Happy Tea Day!

kitty@ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen said...

Christine, all your green is beautiful. I especially love your teapot... sigh!!! What a festive table and tea table.


Oh Chris, you are a perfect Irish girl with stunning greens! St. Pat would be so happy to dine at your table. I love all your Green dishes and of course that gorgeous clove teapot and Green stems!

Parsimonious Perfection said...

I really love the salt and pepper shakers...the mixed green tea setting is very pretty!

Barbara F. said...

Beautiful table, and I love your shamrock tea set! xo

ellen b. said...

Hi Christine,
You really have a great collection of green for St. Patrick's Day. Blessings!

Veronica Roth said...

Hi Christine, you've set a really lovely table. And you sure have a beautiful Irish themed collection. Hope you have a wonderful St Patrick's party. :)

Entertaining Women said...

You may only be Irish for one day, but you have the big giving heart of a sweet Irish lass. Your usual great eye for design is apparent on your St. Pat's table. Next time you have problems with an eBay seller, let me know, and I'll see if I can walk you through it. That should not have happened! Thanks for inviting us for a peek. Cherry Kay

Lynn said...

A very pretty setting Christine! I love the wine glasses and can see folks having some fun with the little hats:@)

Debbie@Mountain Breaths said...

Beautiful table Christine! We are all Irish on St. Patty's Day.

Anonymous said...

Perfect table! Love it all...

Tricia said...

Gorgeous, Christine! I especially love your pretty layered dishes and the perfect green goblets!

Scribbler said...

Really spectacular! Too bad about your ebay experience -- I have a similar one, but the seller did have insurance and they paid.

Of all the pretties you have here, my favorite thing are those footed teacups with the lily of the valley -- just divine.

Manhattan Image and Style said...

Everything looks so festive! I love it!

Wonderful Christine! Those are cute leprechaun hats! Looks like you've got all the right elements for a fine Irish table! The vase is a beauty by the way. Love the finial with the shamrock- so cute! Have an enjoyable St. Patrick's Day!

Linda said...

I absolutely love your table, Christine! My favourite colour is green and you have done a fabulous job showcasing it.

Bonnie said...

I love it how everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day.

As usual you have shown your creativity on your tablescape. I love the large majolica urn as your centerpiece and how clever to add the cute hat. The hats give a festive ambience to your table. Your different shades of green add interest too.Love all your complimentary pieces.

Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Marigene said...

Love all the green...gorgeous table, Christine. The charger plates look like BP Geranium, maybe?
Have a great week.

Bargain Decorating with Laurie said...

Christine, this is beautiful. How cute those little hats are, and I love that you put one on that beautiful vase in the center of the table. Your new chargers are stunning. So is your entire table. laurie

Lulu said...

Wow, you did the green up right. There are so many wonderful pieces on your table that it's hard to pick a favorite!


I came back to see this amazing table and I love those wine glasses Chris, beautiful!
Enjoy your weekend.
PS: I finally did my St. Pat's Wed. evening to join Kathleen, lol! My Little girls went home yesterday and I miss them so much!

Kathleen said...

I think 2 broken chargers is really bad, you are too kind!
Love all your green, Christine, the chargers are fabulous. Going back for another look!
Thanks so much for taking part in the 6th annual St. Pat's Bog Crawl! Slainte'!
