Ready for St. Patty's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day (a little early)!
I have always enjoyed St. Patrick's Day. When I am off work on that day, I like to make St. Patrick's Day Lemon Cupcakes. Hopefully, I will get to do that this year and post the cupcakes. For many years, I have attended the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Kansas City. Sometimes, it is a bit chilly, but always fun.

This table setting honors the Irish with the colors of orange and green.

The white plate is vintage Homer Laughlin, the Debutante Line.

The table runner was discovered at a thrift store--it was brand new! It always amazes me some of the stuff people get rid of. One man's trash is another man's treasure.

The disk pitcher is Poppy Fiesta released last year, and notice how that color matches the original "red" Fiesta which began production in the 1930s. A new color of Fiesta comes out in just a few days, and I can't wait!

I chose my gold chargers because green and gold are great St. Patty's Day colors.

The green dishes are vintage Jadite, and the glassware is from my grandmother. These are my favorite glasses.

I wanted a little more green, so I placed some Depression Glass plates in the Christmas Candy pattern under the jadite vase and rooster.

What would St. Patrick's Day be without a toast! This decanter set is a beautiful pale green, and I love it. I think it might be Tiara glassware.

A few festive shamrocks scattered about the table help with the holiday vibe.

The green napkins came from a thrift store. They were already pressed, YAY!

I am sharing at Between Naps on the Porch!

When I came across your blog and read the words, "I never met a dish I didn't like," I knew I'd found a soul mate. I hate paper plates too. And I came to that hatred through my mother, just as you did. However, the trail of reasoning was just the opposite for me. My mom NEVER used paper plates and she went into a rant when anyone ever suggest she do so. Of course, she had it considerably easier than your mother: one husband, one child.

You have combined your collection of plates well for your St. Patty's Day tablescape. Love the table runner.

I am going to visit your older posts, as this is my first visit here.

Well, Happy St. Pat's Day. Looks like you are ready to celebrate in style. You have a fun collection of Fiesta Ware, carnival glass, and jadite. I look forward to seeing more of your tables.
