Celebrating St. Pat's

 Green is my favorite color so I always enjoy decorating for St. Patrick’s Day. I had hardly closed the book on Valentine’s Day before I started getting out all my cute little green goodies in order to decorate my two-tiered tray. Here it is! Doesn’t it make you think of spring?


  The leprechaun salt and pepper shakers are from Fitz and Floyd. I dearly love these little guys. You can fine a similar set here.

The cups that you saw with a hunt scene last month have been reversed to the thatched cottage side. I have honestly never known tea cups to be quite as versatile as these. The name of this pattern is “Ireland Pursuit” from Noritake.

The oil rubbed bronze cabin with the light inside is something I find so charming that I keep it out year-round. It seems to go with just about everything.

 I found the little cottage sugar and creamer set among my mother’s things. Honestly, I had no idea that she even had this adorable set, so I plan to put it to lots of good use. It seemed most appropriate here.

 The vintage postcard plaques are new this year. I love using postcards in tablescapes and decor, but I find that because they’re so thin they tend to fall over or warp. These seemed to be the perfect answer.

 I bought a set of four of these shamrock tins to use it place settings to hold green popcorn.

St. Patrick’s Day wouldn’t be St. Patrick’s Day without a pot of gold, or in this case mint M&Ms.

 Do any of you decorate for St. Pat’s? Aren’t we all Irish on March 17th?

My favorites, although I love every single thing, are the woman opening the shutters, the cottage sugar and creamer set, and the green M&M's - who knew they could be part of a decorating scheme? I don't decorate for St Paddy's day, although I do have some Irish in my background (bragging loudly). In elementary school, if we didn't wear green that day we were subject to pinching. That would probably be called bullying now (rolling my eyes).

This is so charming - I really need to get one of those tiered trays! I have Irish in my heritage but I have never really celebrated St. Pat's Day, except to drink beer...

You have got this tiered tray thing DOWN TO AN ART!!!!!!! Perfect! And yes, I absolutely celebrate on St. Patrick’s Day! ☘️ The ancestry thing noted a fair dose of it in me, so I get jiggy with it right along with everyone else! Well...maybe a bit more subdued, but still I wear my t-shirt begging for Irish kisses 😘 , eat cabbage and potatoes 🥬🥔 , have myself a glass of Teelings or Jameson🥃, and go to Mass!⛪️

Thanks for sharing the inspiration. Your Irish themes are festive. I'm ready to celebrate. I pulled out the few things I have and began planning my St. Pat's table.. said...

Adorable Pattie! I love the ceramic houses and teapot! Your pot of green M&Ms too!
