Yipee! It’s time for the Annual St. Patrick’s Blog Crawl at Cuisine Kathleen’s!


My table is set for hors d’oeuvres before the Irish stew.







GLASSESWhite metal chargers, topped by a paper St. Patrick’s plate, topped by a green depression glass plate and a green depression glass compote.


Do you see what I see?  I think a leprechaun found the gold, and in his haste to hide it, he spilled some on my table.  I’m going to see if I can find that little guy.  Maybe he left a trail of gold!


Do you think it’s that tall guy in the middle, or one of those tiny little fellows?PIANO TOP

I’m following that little guy, who looks like he’s getting ready to turn and run!






That little leprechaun didn’t lead me to any more gold.  I’ll just have to remember that my family and friends are my gold.  But, dag nabbit, it would have been nice to find a whole pot of gold!


I’m also linking with Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday and The Home Girl for Festive Friday Fiesta.  Be sure to crawl on over to Cuisine Kathleen’s for all of the blog crawl posts.  Thanks so much for crawling by my place.  laurie

Love your leprechauns, so cute and your shamrock topper is so pretty!
I hope you find your pot of gold! You have a treasure in your family, and they in you, and that's no blarney!
Thanks for always being a part of the crawl!


I'm in love with your topper, it's great and very unusual for me, I've never seen one so pretty! I also love your lucky leprechauns, so cute! Love ALL your GREENS and may you receive a lot of luck this St. Patrick's Day. Hugs from Let's Dish.

Wow, really went all out!!! This is great! You really put together some great decorations for this table and throughout the room! I am really diggin' those green & gold glasses!!!!!!! They have a vintage (50s/60s) look, but they still look like something I could maybe purchase in a specialty store today (for an arm and a leg!!!). Enjoy your St. Patrick's Day celebration this weekend!!!

What a fun post, Laurie! It was fun to follow the trail and to see all your cute pics. I'm loving the vintage cuties and your darling banner. Happy St. Paddy's Day!

Stunning! And elegant! I love how you used the green glasses. Ireland needs to make you an honorary Irish Lass, pronto!

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

Now I'm singing "When Irish Eyes are Smiling" in my head! It's such a beautiful song and I see the old sheet music on your piano! Yes, it would be wonderful to find that pot of gold, but in the meantime I'll enjoy your lovely vintage items. Enjoy your weekend! Linda

This is such a nice table! I love how you put a paper plate down and covered it with a glass plate. So fun and festive! Have a great St. Patrick's Day and thank you so much for linking up to the FESTIVE FRIDAY FIESTA Link Party! =D

Sue said...

You set a wonderfully festive St. Patrick's Day table, Laurie. I am fascinated with that urn candleholder filled with shamrocks. Too bad Mr. leprechaun didn't leave you his pot of gold. Pesky little guys, aren't they? :-)
