St. Patrick’s Day Table with DIY Leprechaun Hat Centerpiece


St. Patrick’s Day is less than two weeks away and I’m pulling out the green with a tablescape in anticipation!

My Blooming and Edible Leprechaun Hat Centerpiece received a little embellishment for this St. Patrick’s Day table.


I did a little Irish jig when I spied St. Patrick’s Day ribbon sporting leprechaun hats and shamrocks!

Glittery shamrocks add wishes for good health, good luck, and happiness, in addition to some sparkle, known to attract leprechauns.

And a cake plate elevates the fun as a centerpiece for the table!


You can find the DIY to make your own centerpiece, here.

A cut work lace runner is layered over a “forty shades of green” plaid table cloth. . .

. . .And sprinkled with golden shamrock coins for good luck!


Seeded green goblets give the illusion of watery bubbles, appropriate for a table celebrating the Emerald Isle.


Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage leaf plates are layered over carved wood chargers. . .


Help yourself to a sweet shamrock~ a Grace’s Irish Oatmeal Biscuit!

    Top ‘o the morn to ya, Mar! Bright and cheery, I’d love to sit awhile at your table and soak in the charm. Happy colors, happy table, happy guests. The additions to the centerpiece make it that much more fun. Love those glasses. They look nice and substantial. Have a great week.

    Love the added ribbon and glittery shamrocks to the floral centerpiece. Nice special touch. My table is all set as well with a dark green table cloth, gold chargers and white plates, clear glass goblets with green stems and the gold coins scattered about. I have a cute ceramic Leprechaun with his pot of gold as a centerpiece. I want to make your special bread and butter bread pudding with the Irish whiskey and salted Carmel, sounds so good! Thanks Mary. ☘

    Oh so festive and fun Mary! The hat centerpiece is just the cutest! The cabbage plates are so perfect for St. Pat’s day as is your 40 shades of green plaid cloth. Who doesn’t love a lace runner sprinkled with coins of gold? The leprechauns will be smiling and dancing a jig!

    The elevated and enhanced leprechaun hat is even more beautiful, Mary! What fun it would be for this Irish lass to be seated at your pretty table. I’ll have to look for those Shamrock biscuits…mmmmm….perfect with a cup of Irish tea. Thank you for the morning smiles!!

    Mary, I was waiting for a Tablescape featuring the DIY hat. I love the plaid tablecloth and cabbage plates with the cutwork runner. We went to Ireland in 2015, the Irish are so friendly and fun-loving. Dublin will stand out as one of my favorite cities that I have visited! What a perfect St. Patrick’s Day table. Wishing you a happy Monday, it is raining here.
