Welcome to the 287th Tablescape Thursday!
We’ve been having some early spring weather here in Georgia. It was 77 degrees outside the day I created this table setting. It started out as a St. Patrick’s Day tablescape but somewhere along the way it morphed into a spring table setting, too.
When my son was in elementary school, he enjoyed reading a series of books that were super popular at the time called Choose Your Own Adventure. Anyone remember those? In each Choose Your Own Adventure book, you (the reader) made choices as you read and those choices determined the outcome of the story. Well, today’s table setting is a “Choose Your Own Tablescape” adventure. Are you in the mood for a St. Patrick’s Day table setting or a spring table setting? Or, how about both?
As I sit writing this, it’s turned cold again. That’s okay, though. I love these teaser days because they are getting me excited about the warm summer days ahead.
Last year I found some really cute shamrock salad plates but never got around to using them in a tablescape.
For this tablescape I paired them with my vintage Metlox dishware. The pattern is Poppy Trail, Sculptured Daisy. You may remember it from other table settings including this late summer table: Tablescaping with Metlox Poppy Trail, Sculptured Daisy
I didn’t have any daisies for the centerpiece but the daffodils in my yard are up and blooming. These aren’t the daffodils I planted in pots a month or so ago. Those are just starting to break through the soil. I guess I’ll get two rounds of daffodils this year.
Butterfly napkin rings are from Pier 1 last year.
It’s a spring table setting with a St. Patrick’s Day twist! Shamrock plates are from HomeGoods. Bee flatware worked well with this spring setting.
Forgot to take a close-up picture of the flatware but here’s one from a previous St. Patrick’s Day table.
Are the daffodils blooming in your area, yet? If not, here’s a bit of spring to tide you over until it arrives.
Can’t wait to see green leaves on those trees again!
Happy spring and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Do you have any special plans for St. Patrick’s Day this year?
Looking forward to the beautiful tablescapes linked for this week’s Tablescape Thursday!
