March the seventeenth
Is a very special date,
So glad that you could join me
And help me celebrate!
Though I am not from the old sod,
Not Galway or County Cork,
I was born here on Long “Ireland”
In the great state of New York!
I am proud to be American
But my roots are truly green,
I can hear my daddy sing to me
I’ll take you home, Kathleen!
Let’s get into the spirit
Put your shamrocks on,
Find the pot of gold,
And catch a leprechaun!
Thanks so much for coming
I appreciate you all,
For greening up and doing
The 8th St. Patrick’s Day Blog Crawl!!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ THIS YEAR’S TABLE~ A Cozy St. Patrick’s Dinner
I am running out of Irish things to post, but tried a new combination of things I had!
This year’s table is full of things I have had for years!
The Irish wool placemats and shamrock ceramic napkin holders were gifts from my sister years ago.
I used emerald green plates from Pfaltzgraf and faux Belleek from CTS. Green glass bowls hold a ceramic shamrock for the names.
Table in memory of a fine Irish friend, Judy Finn Gibbons who passed away in Dec. May she be celebrating with St. Patrick himself!
A lacy white napkin from Horchow wrapped in a shamrock napkin, a long ago gift from my neice. Black flatware from the clearance at BBB.
Waterford stems and goblets by Anthropologie that I got at a .99 store!
Shamrock bread plates from Alma, The Tablescaper, as well as the green pitcher.
The centerpiece started with a dollar wire ring with oasis pressed in. Place it on a large round platter.
Fill it with greens from the yard and mini carns from the super market.
If you’d like my recipe for Irish Soda Bread, just type it in in search bar on the sidebar.
Last night we had some Shamrock Ravioli from Costco and Shrimp that I just sauteed in some wine.
A simple Alfredo sauce is on the ravioli. I don’t know the Gaelic equivalent of Alfredo!
Time for you to show your green!
