Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day and I wouldn't have time to take pictures tomorrow or of tomorrow's dinner since that's typical of our household.
Ever since I decided to do another St. Patrick's Day tablescape this year, back in February, I can't stop thinking about how the Irish show their love for their country and how beautiful it must be to see miles and miles of green hillsides and coastline full of life.
But I was more inspired of the thoughts of how a typical Irish family takes a big sigh and just soak it all in.
"The Tranquil Irish Springtime"
The Muggy Days in Ireland
I went to Tuesday Morning yesterday and found these 6 cool b&w dessert plates called, "Pasadena Blackbirds" by Coastline Imports. I got them for $3,99 each or 60% off! Sweet!
I then paired them with my Ambiance "Aristocrat" in butter yellow, my new silverware, "Embossed Scroll" from BHG, and Classic Smoke by Anchor Hocking.
Ireland have also their own local flock of blackbirds: Grackels, Starlings, Sparrows, Thrush.
I love how flat these plates are! The picture is barely interrupted.
Before the candles were lit...
After we turned off the dining room lights and lit the candles.
Can't you just imagine this being in an Irish home with the weather muggy and wet?
I set my previous centerpiece on one end since there'll only be 4 of us, I kept the middle clear.
On the end, a "LUCKY" wood sign from Hobby Lobby.
At Kohl's, I found these Food Network 4-pc Monogrammed Napkins, C and M, our initials, both my husband and I. They were 80% off!
Thank you for stopping by and hope to see you all again!
TABLESCAPING IDEAS: (Brain is feeling calm...) Wonder how another country lives when they're not celebrating their holidays? Probably over a relaxing table. So why not put together a table that says this is my time to breathe... Use colors that draw your eyes to the center and keep it there. Muted colors against neutral; use colors of what calms you down or scenes of tranquility often depicting nature.
