Just got back from a fun trip to CTS and a delicious birthday dinner. DH asked me where I wanted to go, so shopping it was. He waited in the car!
I was there a loooong time! It is 60 miles away, so good thing he didn't decide to leave me there! He never would have waited that long if it wasn't my birthday!
I started with a green and white check cloth. The fabric is from the Duralee Outlet.
Next a dark green felt shamrock cut out mat from CTS.
The clover plates are from TJMaxx, 2 years ago.
Treble Clef flatware from the clearance in BBB.
Napkin is a bandana from ACMoore and Shamrock ceramic napkin rings are a gift from my sis many years ago.
A big fat live shamrock stuffed in the leprechaun's pot for his gold is the centerpiece. A few black top hat pics stuck in to pick up the black from the flatware and napkins.
Green glass by Anthropologie via the .99 store, a recent treasure find. I know, a few if you emailed me that you paid the 8.00 each for them there. :(
A bubble glass stem ...don't remember where I got them.
Butter domes from WSonoma Outlet on sale. They had the same one in CTS for 1.50.
I spray painted some cheapo brass candlesticks with orb, so they are black to match the flatware.
And that's the table for tonight.
Cabbage is always on sale around here this time of year, so I tried a new recipe, Cabbage Fritters.
You can see the recipe and demo HERE
I added fresh minced onion, salt and pepper, and crumbled bacon, and omitted the oregano. I just didn't feel oregano went with cabbage. So, the verdict?
They were good, but without the dip, not much.
If anyone tries them, let me know what you think. I like potato latkes better ! Latkes, potato pancakes, my recipe here.
See you over the weekend, then the 13th for the 4th Annual St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl here.
Give aways include an Oreo Cake Pan from Wsonoma, cookbooks, napkins, napkin rings and a gift card.
Thanks so much for visiting!
