I've set the table for a St. Patrick's dinner.


The chargers are "Lace" by Kennex. On top of that, I sandwiched a St. Patrick's paper plate between a green depression glass plate and a clear glass plate.


Vintag green napkin rings from an estate sale hold shamrock printed napkins.


I bought the emerald green stems from an estate sale a couple of years ago, and the 60's era gold and green water glasses were a wedding gift.


The dough bowl in the center of the table holds green Ball jars.  When I went to the grocery store, I found a floral bouquet marked down to a few dollars, so I used it to fill the jars.


When I serve Banana Pudding for dessert, I'll remove the clear glass dinner plate and replace it with a small glass plate, topped with a depression glass compote.


That's a lot of green on one table!  Do ye Lads and Lassies like the color green?  Thank you for your visit.  

This post is partying with the St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl at Cuisine Kathleen,  Centerpiece Wednesday at The Style Sisters and Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch

How clever to "create" an Irish plate by using clear with paper! A very festive setting, gorgeous glassware!

Yes, I love the color green! And I have those exact green depression glass compotes from my grandmother. I use them for shrimp cocktail! A very interesting and welcoming table, Laurie! Happy St. Patty's Day! Linda

Looking good Laurie! Love all the green. I saw the green ball jars and almost bought some. Seeing them with flowers makes me want one now! The plates look great- perfect way to use the paper! Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Laurie, Your table is charmingly green! I love it. I didn't think anyone else in the world had Those lovely Kennex plates. I have two of the chargers in a creamy yellow that I used for Saint Pat's a few years ago, I have been looking on Ebay for two more of them for years and have not even seen one. I get Emails and see the white once in a while but not often. I guess I better keep looking.

What a beautiful SPD table, Laurie...I think everyone in blogland knows green is my favorite color, so I am in hog heaven seeing all the green this week. I love the bright green stemware...I have them in red, but the green is so much prettier.
Happy Saint Pat's Day, Laurie!
