Come sit with me for awhile and see what I’m bringing to the table…
Yes, yes, I get that the table for St. Patty’s Day does not have to be green. But—oh please—of course there is a but. Creating an celebratory atmosphere of fun, good company, great food and making memories just does not get any better.
I know, sometimes it’s difficult making choices, such as what to use for a “green themed” table setting. My green quilted throw, that I bought in Paris years ago, has been called into double service. Followed with big squared white chargers, layered with white/green patterned plates, and topped off with teal colored hand-thrown bowls.
As most of you know, I love designing out-of-the-box. I concede that the tablescape seen here registers more than just out-of-the-box. What can I say? Nah, I have no regrets straying sooo far from “the box.” Why? Because I had fun creating it, and will have more fun enjoying it! People, people it’s time to step away from the plain old, ho-hum, boring table, and step-up your entertaining game.
Sooo what’s your choice for St. Patrick’s Day? Corned beef and cabbage, perhaps shepherd’s pie, or a hearty Irish stew. No matter what your dinner choice may be, a good old-fashioned Irish coffee with a dollop of whipping cream is very, very, very hard to beat. Ah, the luck of the Irish.
