St. Patrick’s Day is a week away and I’m sharing my love of the Irish
with the wearing of the green and St. Patrick’s Day table inspiration.
And joining a Lucky Charms St. Patrick’s Blog Hop!
You’ll find St. Patrick’s Day inspiration from 13 bloggers
and stylists at the bottom of this post.
If you’re visiting from Rita at Panopy, welcome!
I love how Rita blends new items with her vintage finds in her tablescapes.
If you’re not familiar with the expression, Erin go Bragh, it’s an
Anglicization of Éire go Brách, literally meaning “Ireland until the end of time.”
The modern day accepted translation of Erin go Bragh is “Ireland forever.”
My inspiration for my St. Patrick’s Day-themed table came from
an assortment of vintage St. Patrick’s Day postcards
and a shamrock embroidered runner.
I’ve always loved vintage postcards that have survived through the years. . .
oh the stories they could tell!
I picked up the postcards at an antique mall for a couple of dollars each . . .
the oldest with a post mark of 1911, addressed to ‘Mary’. ☘️
An ironstone pitcher is filled with green and white flowers for a centerpiece,
recycled from my Monday Morning Blooms arrangement. . .
alstroemeria, mums, (both white and green, big and small),
green carnations and white hydrangeas.
I used clear floral tape for two shallow cabbage leaf bowls,
taping off a grid pattern to support the flower stems.
Make sure the surface of your vase or bowl is dry before you apply your tape,
then fill with water.
Ireland is a land that boasts 40 shades of green, so
I dressed the table with a multi-hued plaid cloth. . .
Seeded glass goblets have the appearance of watery bubbles,
and seemed fitting for a table to celebrate the Emerald Isle.
Help yourself to a sweet shamrock, an O’Neills Shamrock Shortbread Cookie,
served up in a cabbage leaf bowl!
For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way–
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.
~ Irish Blessing
May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.
