I did make a couple of changes from the earlier tablescape, click here to see the first one. I used my every day dishes, Tradition dinner plates by Apilco, instead of the Mikasa dinner plates.
When I first saw these salad bowls at Crate and Barrel, I looked at the bottom and they were marked "Cavolo." I was so excited! I was thinking Caravaggio, Michelangelo, Leonardo . . . All great Italian artists whose names ended in "o" . . . Was I holding a future masterpiece in my hands . . . ? I googled the name the minute I got home . . . Alas . . . cavolo is Italian for cabbage!
And, instead of the Tava chargers from the previous post, I used these woven brown placemats from Bed Bath and Beyond. It added a lighter feel to the setting to counter the color-saturation of the napkin . . .
Shamrock plants made an easy centerpiece, their lovely green color brightening the table; and afterwards, guests took them home as party favors . . .
A thorough watering really perked them up overnight . . .
We served Irish coffee after dinner . . . A little advance prep kept this hostess out of the kitchen and enjoying the company of her guests . . .
And a cute little pillow that I couldn't resist . . .
St. Patrick's Day is officially over at our house!
Now I can start thinking about Easter . . . yikes!
