Inspired by the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula, blue linen and glassware take center stage on this casual St. Patrick's Day table.
A cottage-style centerpiece featured hydrangea, four leaf clover, tulips, ferns, ivy, daffodils, roses, and dried flowers. Everything was tucked into a white wicker basket.
As a novice birder, I was thrilled when, shortly after we moved to the new house, I unpacked four "egg" plates. I'd bought them several years ago but they'd remained in the box. Life had just gotten too bumpy to set the table. As I held up a plate, I wondered if my past life had known what lay ahead--smoother days, with the joy of bird watching and tending to my local flock.
The first plate shows the speckled egg of a Golden-Crested Wren.
The beautiful egg of an American Robin is depicted on another plate.
The third plate shows a Nightingale egg.
Finally, a Meadow Lark's egg.
The stainless flatware shows British flowers.
I'm truly happy to share my second tablescape at the new house.
Happy St. Patrick's Day.
See you all at Foodie Friday and Everything Else at 5 PM today (Thursday, March 17th).
