St. Patrick’s Day Table

Posting my second tablescape!  I’m so new at this – I know my pictures could stand a little work and my table, well it could use some work too, but I’m having fun with what I have and that’s all that matters, right?

I set a table for four.  Yes, I know the picture could be better.  I can’t believe I didn’t get it centered.

 My bowls, napkins, candlesticks, crocheted table runner and tablecloth all came from the Goodwill store (and the prices were right.)

My little bucket, flowers, beads and chargers came from Michael’s.

I made my napkin rings from St. Pat’s garland I had.  I added the little buttons because we were having house guests that included two little boys who I thought might like to have them.

I thought the table looked cute.  I made the little bows on the orange candles because I had some St. Pat’s ribbon.

 I made some goodies for the kids, cake pops and candy which they LOVED so that made me happy.

Mmmm, yummy!

I hope you all have a great St. Patrick’s Day.

  7. It looks lovely. I think it would be so much fun to sit at that table. It looks really pretty and festive. I love the dishes and all of the goodies look wonderful too.
    Thank you so much for your very sweet comment today. I appreciate it very much. If there is one thing I don’t like is when I get negative about things. It think it comes from reading Pollyanna as a young girl and deciding life was better to live like that. 🙂 I like your Face book challenge.

    Goodness you’re dpoing such a great job…only the second tablescape and it’s gorgeous! I do love your dishes with the apple and your entire place settings. I’m so partial to crochet things and your runner is lovely! I love it that you added the beaded neckleases too. The kid’s sweets look so good. Thank you for your lovely and kind visit. May you have lots of Irish luck this weekend.
