Shamrocks for St. Patrick's Day

Hello sweet friends !

Next 17th. of March is St. Patrick's Day, the patron of Ireland.

I've set a table with my 'shamrock' china that was made back at our former Ceramic Co., Monte Turi, that was my husband Alejandro's and I worked with the designs of the china. We had 14 designs, all inspired in the embroidered clothing of the indigenous people of Ecuador.

These set of dishes has many pieces and it's a coincidence that they also have 'shamrocks' in them.

I must stress that all the dishes were hand decorated as well as hand made by the 'wheel,' as in the movie 'Ghost,' lol..

Wishing all my Irish and not bloggy friends a wonderful St. Patrick's Day 2018.

Here is my table in honor of the Irish Patron.

The stars of this tablescape in honor of Irish patron St. Patrick are the shamrock plates.
As centerpiece I used greenery, a lovely 'Anthodium plant.'

The shamrocks are embroidered in some men's shirts cuffs and collars.
I wasn't blogging when I designed this decoration, but hey, I'm so thrilled for the coincidence in using the dishes for a St. Pat's table setting.

Aren't they so pretty? I love these Shamrock and flower pattern, plus such a green background, couldn't work better for St. Patrick's if I wanted to !

I used these quilted place mats with lots of greens that my dear daughter Sofia's gifted me for  Christmas, many years ago.

This setting has 12 tea serving pieces and eight dinner servings.

My 'anthodium' had two pretty red flowers, but one fell and one is growing.

There are also many serving pieces to this china.


Thank you dear friends for your kind comments, you always make my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their parties.
