‘Hats Off to Leprechauns’ for a little folklore and fun in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day! Create a table with mini leprechaun hats, edible pots of gold, a Belleck Irish Cottage Teapot flower arrangement and cabbage leaf bowls.
St. Patrick’s Day is just a few days away and you know what they say . . .
There are two kinds of people, those who are Irish and those who wish they were!
A Belleek Irish Cottage Teapot provides a centerpiece for this St. Patrick’s Day table, blooming with a combination of Mums, Carnations and Green Trick Dianthus, reminiscent of Irish moss. . .
While glittery shamrock picks add wishes for good health, good luck, and happiness, in addition to some sparkle, known to attract leprechauns.
Scattered coins for good luck are sprinkled down a cut work lace runner, layered over a black and white buffalo check tablecloth as a foundation for the table.
Black and white buffalo check plates frame cabbage leaf bowls, perfect for serving up
Irish Beef Stew or Pot of Gold Irish Potato Soup!

What have we here. . . ?
It looks like we found this leprechaun’s stash of edible gold, aka ROLOs, hiding under his hat! ☘️
More cabbages in the form of spray napkin rings and mini cabbage bowls serving up sweet shamrocks~ Grace’s Irish Shortbread! ☘️
Seeded green goblets give the illusion of watery bubbles, appropriate for a table celebrating the Emerald Isle.
If you’re lucky enough to be Irish, you’re lucky enough! ☘️

What a sweet flower arrangement. I love any kind of arrangement done in a teapot!
Love the little cabbage napkin rings…that would be so cute to use in something like a Peter Rabbit tablescape :)
Hi Katy, They are! You can see them in a Bunny Garden Tablescape here: https://homeiswheretheboatis.net/2018/04/09/bunny-garden-table-in-the-potting-shed/

I’m swooning over that precious Belleek teapot! The serving trays are sweet too and look like they are Belleek also. I’m green with envy, lol. Another very lovely table Mary.☘♥️☘
Another beautiful tablescape Mary! Love the buffalo check with the green; it’s so fresh & represents Spring so well. The lovely linens are so pretty & the napkin rings are so cute! The belleek and cabbage ceramics are perfect. Wishing you a wonderful day! Clara 💚☘️
Love your Irish tablescape–looks like spring. Our area is finally having some spring-like weather. Thank you for sharing all your beautiful ideas.
Your black and white, green scheme is very fresh and vibrant. Really highlights the green, making it all IRISH!
I am a sucker for a green flower and I absolutely adore those green dianthus. I grew them in containers outside last year because I love them so much. I haven’t seen those pretty green mums though. I need to look for some of those!
Another lovely tablescape! The black & white buffalo check was just the right touch.
I do have teapot envy, Mary! I should have bought Belleek when I visited Ireland! Love your beautiful Irish table!
I’m lovin’ those pom-pom flowers Mary! That’s a fun table, looks like you’re all set for a green beer or two-enjoy:@)
Love green so everything is perfect and so Happy! The second I saw the word Belleek my mind went into overload as I forgot all my Belleek that’s packed away.. Thank you for the wake up call
And another awesome tablescape.
Your table is so perfect for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in style! I’m swooning over your cottage Belleek teapot centerpiece and your buffalo checked tablecloth and plates. Your placemats add a sparkle to your pretty table. I think I’ll have a rolo before I leave! ☘️💚☘️
Oh Mary, this is so delightful, I know your local leprechauns are dancing a jig! The Green Trick Dianthus does look like Irish moss! So pretty in your Irish cottage teapot! Love the black and white checks with all the St. Pat’s green! ☘️
So cute!!! We were a little bit on the same wave length this St. Patty’s Day! All of your little details and treasures are so fun! Fabulous Table!!
Mary, another wonderful table! I’m green with envy over the stemware! I’ve had rotten success finding vintage or new dark green glasses to complement my Ireland Pursuit pattern, everyday glasses. So this year, I hand-painted shamrocks on Dollar Tree pilsners for some Irish good luck. Happy a great holiday!
Love your tablescape. It is amazing when I go to BNOTP I always pick out your tablescape (without knowing it is you). Love the centerpiece and little hats at the place setting. I’m not Irish, but I will be on March 17😂😀🤣 Happy St. Patty’s day!
Mary the Beleek teapot with the flower arrangement is extra special. Thank You for the recipes.
HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY MARY. I am in love with your Irish display. So Irish and Spring like.
Love the Beleek teapot,the flowers and everything else green. Have great day March 17th.
Such a sweet arrangement! Love the recipes!
Creative as usual, Mary! Love the teapot!
My word! The black and white buffalo check is so unexpected for St. Patrick’s Day, but so perfect! As usual, I’ve found something to pin from your post. Next year, we’ll be munching on “Lucky Popcorn Mix” for sure!
Just when I think you’ve outdone yourself, you do it again! Love the tablescape! Wish I could find those Shannon Porcelain trays. I enjoy your posts so much. I found out a couple of years ago that I’m about 25% Irish….it explains a lot…..lol. Thanks again Mary!
