My husband was just in here with me exploring all the Crawl posts, and he LOVED the leprechaun touch you added!!! That was his favorite part! You certainly got HIS attention! I hope the luck of the Irish blesses you and that you have a really fun St. Patrick's Day celebration!

Your china is beautiful and so appropriate for a St. Patrick's Day table. Thanks for sharing.

Fun tables Laurie! Lovin' those beautiful thatched roof plates! Happy St. Pat's Day:@)

Debbie said...

This one is just as fun as it can be! I love the centerpiece. I'm trying to figure out what the grass is made of. It looks different from anything I've seen.
Plus, those plates look exactly like what I picture in my mind when I think of an Irish village. They're perfect.

I haven't check out other posts at the blog crawl yet. I'm so busy this week jigging from pillar to post. I can't wait to see more of them.
