Shamrock ♣♣♣ Table and the letter F

Tonight I am combining Tablescape Thursday hosted by dear Susan at Between Naps on the Porch , and joining  Jenny Matlock for the letter F on her Alphabet Thursday..a FIRST for me.

So I start with F for FABRIC….

I used this pretty eyelet fabric with a FLIRTY trim for my tablecloth…

table 3241It is also FRUGAL…as I know I paid less than 2.00 a yard for it at the fabric outlet..

Next is FABRIC FUN shaped place mats..

table 3238 

F is for light FIXTURE when  I hung shamrocks and FINE ribbon..

table 3249

table 3242

F F for FRESH FLOWERS that I put in a shamrock vase..

table 3248Those Gibson white dishes and  the soup bowl is FROM Christmas Tree Shops..as are the shamrock napkins..

For FUN meet Finnegan….you know, he had whiskers on his chin agin..:) Come on..sing along…I know a man named Michael Finnegan…….You know you know it!  :)

table 3250And FINALLY, F is for friend, who gave  me this tiny little shamrock dinner bell…

table 3254  table 3247

And pretty shamrock pitcher..

  3. Oh I love your tablescape. The linens are all just gorgeous and your pretty Gibson dishes are always a staple I think. All of your decorations are so pretty and I enjoyed the alphabet game too. Now tell me about the St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl. I don't know what that is. I want to play, but I don't know what to do. Let me know at astrollthrulife@live.com. Thanks. Hugs, Marty

  11. Kathleen, have you been shopping again? (or I should say, do you ever stop?) I don't remember seeing those shamrock placemats - they are perfect! Everything looks so coordinated and wonderfully themed! You are very good at the alphabet game - FUN! I am crazy about the black with the green in your header - very striking!
