I love designing tablescapes. I started back in September 2010 and I now design tablescapes to share on my blog as well as on "Between Naps on the Porch" for Tablescape Thursdays.

My passion for designing tablescapes has sent me out on a search to buy more dishes that I can share every week.

I also enjoy making my own napkins to go with my different dishes and I love to mix and match some of my beautiful dishes.

The Luck Of The Irish.

I wanted to do a Repost on this Tablescape
My Inspiration for this Tablescape was the hand made 
Embroidered tablecloth
from Ebay. I love the shamrocks and yellow flowers. 
My dinnerware is mix with other dishes, the colors are
the same colors from the tablecloth.

I put green shamrocks on my white flower dishes just for fun!
Can you see them ?

I purchased the napkins rings from Pier one !!

Lets light the candles and have a cold glass of wine.
Maybe a cold beer. It is almost St. Patrick's Day.

I hope you are having a good time!!

This tablecloth is my Favorite..

The centerpiece is a mix of Spring flowers.

My dinner for St. Patrick's Day will be "
French onion soup first then Corn beef with new red potatoes and green cabbage.
The dessert cream puffs with chocolate syrup on top and Irish coffee Yummy!!

I hope you all come Back!!
Please take a moment to comment. Thank you so much!
I am linking up with these Blogs for there linky parties.
