Good evening, Ladies, welcome to Let’s Dish! I hear it is Spring! No one told the weather man here, still pretty cold!
LET’S DISH IS ONE YEAR OLD!
Thank you to all who have taken part, or stopped by for a visit.
It isn’t a gigantic party, but we have such a great group of dish lovers! You visit others, leave comments, and we have a good time.
New members are always welcome, if you know someone who shares our hobby, please invite them. Membership requires some time to visit the entrants, and leave comments for them.
That’s how we get to know one another!
Next, I want to thank all those who entered the 5th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Blog Crawl! I visited everyone, and just loved seeing all your entries.
Thanks to all those who left comments, and for all the visits you made. Some got 90 visits!
The winner of the Home Goods gift card is Nana Diana. Please contact me with your snail mail address. Congratulations, and happy shopping!
The next Tablescape Challenge is April 24th
Remember, it doesn’t have to be a full table. You can show us a collection you have, or share a recent tablescape purchase.
It does have to be table related, dishes, glasses, linens, centerpiece…you get the idea.
My inspiration for tonight’s table is this pot of beautiful blue hydrangea I gifted myself for my birthday 2 weeks ago.
It has 8 beautiful blooms on it, and can be planted, if it ever warms up!
I put it in a basket, and added some baby’s breath.
I used a hydrangea tablecloth I have had a long time. The little bird egg salt and pepper sits in a silver tray.
The flatware is by Cambridge and I got it at CTS years ago.
The stemware and blue pitcher is by Dansk.
Little silver baskets hold a votive candle. They are by Silvestri.
The bird nest charger is from PB Outlet, Alma and I scooped them up last year, 2.00
The napkin ring is from World Market.com. We don’t have that store here. Napkins I have had for years.
Silver footed egg cups hold the egg with the guest’s name written on it.
The blue bowls I found in clearance at HG. They were $1.20
The white dinner plate is a swirled pattern and coupe shaped. They almost look like a big odd shaped egg!
They were on sale a few years ago for 1.80. I bought a stack of them, they are great for buffets, and to serve pasta with shrimp etc.
This is my toned down Easter table, next week the pastels will fly!
The recipe for the Beer Irish Stew I showed last week is here.
Ladle the stew into individual ramekins. Make mashed potatoes, add shredded cheddar cheese. Put in a piping bag and pipe on top of the hot stew. Bake in the oven a bit till the taters are golden.
Dig in and enjoy!
