FABBY: St. Patrick's Day Table Challenge

Hello sweet friends!

How are you all my Irish friends, hope you are getting ready for St. Patty's 2015!

I am happy to join our friend Kathleen for her annual St Patty's Day challenge at her great meme, Let's Dish.

My contribution will always be using my shamrock china made and hand decorated back at our Monte Turi, Ceramic Factory.  I designed dishes while I worked with Alejandro. This pattern is from the indigenous men of Ecuador shirts to be exact and the cuffs of them always had shamrocks and I wonder why, lol...

With that said, here my tablescape to honor Ireland's St. Patrick's Day and my Irish friends.

These dishes has serving pieces, such as this 'tray of gold,' instead of a pot of gold, for some Irish luck rubbing, lol...

The sherbets has shamrocks too. These pieces were not in this year's table, but today is the green holiday, so I added these two.

The friends that follow me might remember that I had this crocheted table topper made by a lady who does them as a job; as I found it stored in a drawer half way finished by a girl who took off and moved to the USA, some ten years or more ago.

Of course, here is the dinner plate with shamrocks, perfect for the St. Patty's celebration.

Here is the salad plate with shamrocks as well.

I formed the place setting with my reticulated chargers, dinner plate, salad plate and white soup bowl for contrast.

The centerpiece is just a green plant on a decorated in green planter, under a cloche.

For after an Irish dinner, I know I love Bailey's with my coffee or even alone in cute green glasses, for St. Pat's Day.

I paired my water green goblets with my Mexican hand blown wine stems.

See you all at: LET'S DISH

Thank you my friends for the sweet and kind comments, as you always make my day!

Thanking the lovely hostesses and in this case Kathleen that pretty Irish Laddie who's hostessing this great challenge in the honor of her Irish patron, St. Patrick.
