A Festive St. Patrick’s Day Table Setting

Welcome to the 443rd Tablescape Thursday! Gina put together the most wonderful tablescape for friends and family for St. Patrick's Day! Oh, how I would love to be dining here!   Gina found the cute shamrock plates at Lillian Vernon several years ago.

St. Patrick’s Day Table with 4-Leaf Clover & Shamrock Dishes

St. Patrick’s Day Spring Table Setting

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 … [Read more...]

Mystery Song Solved & Growing an Edible Shamrock Tree

What a fun day yesterday!  I loved reading your comments and suggestions concerning the mystery song playing on the cute Easter/Spring water globe I found recently in Marshalls.   I learned something new yesterday, too!   Did you know there are apps you can download to your cell phone or iPad that will "listen" to a song that's playing and will identify it for you?  I had no idea!  The two mentioned in … [Read more...]

A St. Patrick’s Day Table Setting on the Porch

Welcome to the 185th Tablescape Thursday! Spring officially arrives on March 20th, but it's already here in Georgia.  The temps have been in the upper 70's; they even went above 80° today. It was so beautiful out the day I captured these pics.  I'm looking forward to seeing green leaves filling out the trees real soon.  I don't think it will be long now.   The sheers were dancing in the … [Read more...]

St. Patrick’s Day Tablescape

Welcome to the 78th Tablescape Thursday! If I show you a St. Patrick's Day tablescape now, will it make spring come faster? I wish.  I couldn't make up my mind which napkin rings to use, so I used four different kinds. The frilly ribbon one is actually a hair tie from Big Lots. They only had two hair ties, so I used one as a napkin ring and took the other one apart and used the ribbons and various parts … [Read more...]

Ahhh...their sweet, sweet fragrance is wonderful! Little bees must have been tucked … [Read more...]
