Ireland is a land that boasts 40 shades of green, so I dressed the table with a multi-hued cloth and with cabbage leaf plates in celebration. . .

For each petal on the shamrock

This brings a wish your way–

Good health, good luck, and happiness

For today and every day.

May your blessings outnumber

The shamrocks that grow,

And may trouble avoid you

Wherever you go.

And what do your think is hiding under the shamrock . . .

Could it be a pot of gold?

No gold, rather a bunny ready to hop out, since Easter is a just a little over a week away!

    You’ve showed the many shades of green in a most beautiful way Mary! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

    Love the flatware and Bordallo. The bunny plate is so cute! I also picked up that green tick dianthus last week at the grocery – makes a great arrangement filler. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

    This table is so very special!…You could not ask for a more beautiful table for St. Patrick’s Day….Love those cabbage plates!….Will have to settle for a “Reuben” as opposed to our traditional corned beef and cabbage as we are “on the road” that day….I shall celebrate vicariously through your amazing table of green!…

  8. March 16, 2016 at 8:01 am

    You’ve shown the many shades ‘o green that Ireland has in it’s countryside, Mary. I can still picture the beautiful patchwork on the rolling hills. Your floral centerpiece in the pitcher is so pretty, and so are the individual bell jars scattered about the table. I love that green dianthus…what a lovely textured accent. Yes, before I leave, I’d love a biscuit (or two), just don’t tell the bunny! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

    Top ‘o the Mornin’ to ya wee lassie! Such a beautiful tablescape, all done up in gorgeous greens. I never knew about that Green Trick Dianthus & must go hunt some down soon. Your little shamrock biscuits are precious too, Mary…you always find the neatest things!!!
    Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you & yours & Happy Blog Rolling with Kathleen!

  11. March 16, 2016 at 8:24 am

    I love your 40 shades of green Mary, with plaid, cabbage, and flowers! The bunny plate is like finding gold, so cute! You always combine such wonderful things in your centerpiece arrangements and the “Irish moss” is fantastic! You are ready for some hearty Irish Stew to eat with your shamrock biscuit 🍀 Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

  12. March 16, 2016 at 8:48 am

    I was looking forward to your post. It is beautiful and creative just as I knew it would be. Like the Green Trick Dianthus and your tablecloth is the perfect foundation to all the shades of green. The Irish poem was fun to read in thinking about your St. Patrick’s tablescape. Looking forward to the blog crawl at Kathleen’s tonight.

  13. March 16, 2016 at 9:12 am

    Gorgeous, Mary. Your table must SMELL heavenly!! It sure LOOKS heavenly!

    I love the glittery shamrocks in the bouquets Mary! And I’ve found a bunny hiding under my cabbage leaves in the garden more than once:@)

    Now that’s a beautiful St. Patrick’s tablescape! Those napkins are lovely and the cabbage dishes look so “dressed up” on that terrific tablecloth! Pinning for sure!

    I am swooning over your Bordallo Pinheiro plates, dear friend!
    Your St. Patrick’s Day Tablescape is exquisite!
    I first thought your Irish Oatmeal Biscuits were Girl Scout Cookies!
    The floral arrangement is breathtakingly beautiful!
    HaPpY St. PaTrIcK’s DaY!

    When I planned my tablescape I had in mind your table when I finished. Such an elegant table. I love your green plates and bunnies and the print on the clothe, chargers and flowers. What a beautiful table to welcome St. Patrick’s Day. Hope you enjoy the special day…………

  23. March 16, 2016 at 8:57 pm

    Well, this is a great table, Mary, and I am in LOVE with those bunny plates. I was already admiring the pretty borders and didn’t realize they had bunnies, too. I just love the BP dishes; I try to keep an eye out for them when I shop at HomeGoods and Tuesday Morning. Your napkins are so pretty with the little green flowers, and the tablecloth is too. All your flower arrangements are lovely; I have some of those green ball jars, and I keep forgetting to use them. ;)

    Visiting from Kathleen’s — hope you have a great St. Patrick’s Day and a wonderful weekend, too. Spring has definitely sprung here in N.C., hasn’t it?



  24. March 16, 2016 at 8:59 pm

    Love the mix of greens here Mary! That tablecloth is so perfect and I like the green ball jars for the vases. Your center arrangement is beautiful. Love that new dianthus plant. Wishing you a great St. Patrick’s Day!

  25. March 16, 2016 at 9:06 pm

    Love your table. I am especially fond of the tablecloth, I’d love to find a similar one! Job well done.

  26. March 16, 2016 at 9:31 pm

    Your table is stunning for St. Patty’s Day, the tablecloth is such an eye-catcher along with the plates and the centerpiece. Always enjoy seeing your posts.

    Visiting from Cuisine Kathleen’s St. Pat’s day blog hop! What a wonderful table setting! I really like your tablecloth. It’s such a nice background for your layered setting. Happy St. Patrick’s day to you!

  28. March 16, 2016 at 10:23 pm

    All these pretty greens are making me think spring, spring, spring. Actually our weather is definitely spring here in TX. Love your pretty table, Mary. Alfresco dining lakeside – what could be more suitable for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day? Have a happy one!

  32. March 17, 2016 at 10:32 am

    Hello Mary! I just love green and white in floral arrangements. The green mums are my favorite and they seem to be a neutral that pulls almost any color together. Love the bunny plate! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

  33. March 17, 2016 at 11:43 am

    Top of the mornin to ya! Happy St Patricks Day! As always! Beautiful table setting! Great job!

    Eu também gosto muito da loiça Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro. A fábrica renovou-se. De popular tornou-se loiça de luxo. Fico contente por ver a loiça do meu país ser admirada do outro lado do Oceano Atlântico.

    Very pretty…St. Patty’s Day is a fun time

  39. March 17, 2016 at 11:21 pm

    You did pull out many shades of green for your beautiful table, Mary! Your BP cabbage dishes make me smile…I was surprised there were so few tables with them this year.
    I am intrigued with the unique green trick dianthus. Never heard of it until seeing it in your post. I would love to find some to put in my garden.
    Thanks for sharing your talent. ♣

    Always such elegance in your tables, so pretty! I love the centerpiece and the bunny plates are gorgeous!!

  41. March 18, 2016 at 9:28 pm

    That is a lovely SPD table, Mary! The green and white is so nice and crisp! Love the blooming napkins. My mom’s name was Grace, so I def would have bought Grace’s Irish Biscuits, no WM here though. Thanks so much for taking part in the SPD blog crawl. Some of us go back to the beginning! Happy Easter too. I guess we should start posting Memorial Day to keep ahead of things! :)

  42. March 20, 2016 at 5:12 pm
