Shamrocks and Roses 2016 Saint Patrick's Day Tablescape

It is that time of year again.  Cuisine Kathleen's Annual Saint Patrick's Day Crawl is today.  I wait each year to see what kind of wonderful recipes, decor, and tablescapes will be created in honor of Saint Patrick's Day.  This year I decided not to buy anything new and to use things that I already had.  Really I had the table all set up and ready until I went to Goodwill on the way home last night.  Oh My .....  I found a set of the prettiest green and yellow basket weave plaid or check pattern plates I had ever seen.  With my earned discount coupon I ended up paying $.65 cents each.  Well back to ground zero digging into boxes at my storage unit to find the shamrock bowls I knew I had late in the evening last night.  My Revised tablescape follows.....

  2. What a fun table with all your cute Irish figures. Love the Ginori dishes. We have Ginori china that we selected when we married. I didn't know they made ironstone. Beautiful design. What a cute idea to have the doll party.
    Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  3. What a great find at your Good Will shop! Those plates are perfect for the occasion and I'm glad you "dug up" the shamrock bowls - wonderful dish stack. That tablecloth is such a pretty backdrop. The green goblets with shamrock napkins add just the right punch of green. Would love to sit at this table and have a closer look at all those cut figurines. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  5. Susie, I found the tablecloth at the Volunteers of America Thrift Store quite a few years ago. I Used it for a Saint Patrick's day tablescape I four years ago. The Water goblets were the only thing that I bought new (from Marc's for 2 for $99 cents)I am thinking to use this tablecloth again this year for an Easter Table. I am very pleased about the plates I found and they will be in another tablescape later in the spring I think.
    Happy Saint Patrick's Day,
    Hugs,
    Candy

    1. The Richard Ginori dishes were a new name to me. After I did a little research on them I am wondering why I had never crossed paths with them before. They are beautiful quality, and beautiful designs.

  9. Someone put a few hours into that beautiful tablecloth. What a great deal on the basket weave plates! They will look nice for a summer table, too.
    I am loving your little leprechaun centerpiece.
    Happy SPD ♣

  10. Oh my gosh, Candy! I love this tablescape. Vintage is my choice, always, before new, and those basketweave plates were the very first thing that caught my attention. I agree with you - those are some of the prettiest green & yellow plates I've seen (and my happy color choices, too!). And do I spy MacKenzie-Childs Courtly Check in the background?? Love that too. Happy St. Patrick's Day. This was my first time on Kathleen's blog crawl - what a way to jump into spring. I love all these tables!

  12. Oh, my, Candy, I love, love, love this table! Those Ginori plates are WONDERFUL!! What a find! You've complemented them perfectly with your chargers and shamrock bowls, perfect tablecloth ( I can't imagine what work went into creating it!) and your fantastic leprechaun figurines!! A wonderful table for celebrating St. Patrick's Day. Bravo!! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  13. You have so many wonderful St. Pat's Day things Candy, but the tablecloth was a show stopper for me! How fabulous! And of course I love the Courtly Check in the background! Happy St. Pat's Day!

  14. Candy, I can't believe you got those Ginori plates for 65 cents each!!! This must be the best buy of the year! Your table is wonderful and you are certainly a dedicated tablescaper to dig out dishes at night! I'm glad you did! Linda

  15. I love your table, but have to tell you that was completely knocked off balance by that tablecloth. I embroidered the exact same one when I was in high school! I gave it to my mother as a gift and, well, I guess she got rid of it before she passed away because I haven't seen it since. Wow, you really gave me the chills with this post (in a nice way).

  16. Oh my - so many lovely greens. The little leprechauns are so special - my favorite is the little guy with the tall hat. Everything goes together so beautifully and the new plates are absolutely perfect. The dolls look like they are having a good time too - wonderful post!
