Good evening, Ladies! One week from tonight will be the 5th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Blog Crawl! I can’t believe this is the 5th year, I am running out of Irish things to show you! :)
Tonight I am showing you the table I did for my dinner party on March 17th, 2012. The blog crawl was already over, so I saved it for this year.
I used the plaid wool cloth that you have seen, as well as the Belleek like dishes, mine are from CTS.
Green glass chargers are by Gorham, via Lenox Outlet.
I served the soup in white handled bowls trimmed with gold, but I kept them in the kitchen till the soup was served.
Little toadstools hold the place cards. On the right you can see a lucky lottery ticket I tucked under each plate.
The toadstools were from the PB Outlet..
I think someone won $5.00! Enough for a box of Lucky Charms.
One of the guests is NOT Irish, so his toadstool had the symbol for NO drawn through the flag on the back of his card. I think he is the one who won the $5.00!
The napkins are ecru trimmed in green , napkin holders are green mini Blarney stones, :), 25 cents from CTS.
I sat the crystal bowl of fresh white mums and baby’s breath on a mirrored charger, with a few glass shamrocks around the edge.
Waterford Crystal, candlesticks by Mikassa. Glass bowls for our Irish Soda or rye bread were my mom’s.
The flatware is silver trimmed in gold.
A closer look at my pretend Belleek…
We had some green chips…
Some leek and tater crisps dipped in O’Chive cream
Close enough recipe here. I sauteed the leeks, better flavor..
Individual Bailey’s Death by Chocolate.
“Irish Connolly’s”, ie, Chocolate Cannoli’s filled with whipped green and dipped in green sugar! :) Connolly is my maiden name.
Of course we had the traditional corned beef and cabbage, and Irish Flag Soup.
I hope you are getting your Shamrock on, and I can’t wait to see what you all come up with! Last year there were over 100 entries, and seas of green flowed throughout blogland!
