Celebrating St Partrick's Day

I wanted to give a nod to Saint Patrick when setting a casual table for a breakfast tea and coffee for a neighbor get together. Using my white Laura Ashley table topper, green napkins and shamrock plants it's pretty much ready. Sorry, I don't have the food ready for photos. This evening I will be making my Irish scones to be heated tomorrow morning and I will serve with clotted cream and Irish Kerrygold butter, my favorite and of course Irish honey and jam and a fruit tray. Irish shortbread and oatmeal biscuits are ready made and really quite good. Coffee of course and I have Rose tea I discovered at the Fairmont Hotel while in Vancouver, BC last fall. I wold love if you could join me…...

I truly am of Irish heritage

  11. Oh Emily what a fun and perfect way to celebrate St. Pat's! Your table and hutch look lovely decked out in Irish flair for the celebration! The vintage cards and rhymes are wonderful, and your beautiful white china looks gorgeous. Scones and clotted cream and butter have my stomach rumbling in hunger! You are lucky to have traveled to so many places, thank you for sharing your fab photos and trips. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  12. What a delightful post, Emily. Your table is tempting - please count me in....I am certainly more than a little Irish on my grandmother's side and I have green eyes.
    Every touch is lovely on the table, from the sweet mushroom to the cupid with a shamrock. Your menu sounds perfect. Enjoy!

  13. Your table looks perfect Emily and I also like the outdoor photos. Ireland is a beautiful place and one of those bucket spots that everyone should see;) Scones sound so good right now. We will be going out this evening and so I won't be making a tradition feast. Enjoy your dinner and day!

  14. Your table is beautiful and the pictures of Dublin make me want to go there right now. The hanging baskets are just beautiful. Thank you so very much for sharing.

  15. My heart is all a-flutter with your gorgeous Ralph Lauren pieces! I love the mushroom, too...I can just imagine a mischievous little leprechaun sitting there! Beautiful pictures of Ireland, too, thank you for sharing them!

  16. What a fabulous table! I am enjoying all the details of your setting and the wonderful cards! It is St. Patrick's Day come to life!

    I hope your day is just as spectacular as your table!

  17. Your table is so welcoming. The scenes of Ireland and the music are very special. Thank you so much.

  18. I love all the green! The Ralph Lauren dishes are classic and can be used in so many ways, which I'm sure you do! Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!

  19. Great job! I am not Irish, but even I want to celebrate! Love all the photos!

  20. What a nice way to get Saint Patrick Day celebration started, breakfast with neighbors. Beautiful table, Emily. I have never been able to keep a shamrock plant alive, yours is so pretty. Your post is filled with so much's all eye candy for me.
    Happy SPD♣

  21. What lovely photos you shared and I love your dishes.

  23. What a beautiful post.

  24. Such a sweet table to celebrate SPD with your neighbors! Your shamrocks are so healthy! Thanks so much for taking part and the pics of Ireland are lovely! I hope to get there someday. My sister goes every year as her dh was born there. Maybe I can sneak in with her! :)

  25. Beautiful table for St Patty's Day with your RL China. Each pattern is so intricate and look stunning on your table. Your black hutch and decor pieces are very striking. Great pics for your post. Now it's time to think about Easter decor and planning. For me, it means finding boxes marked Easter still not unpacked from our move.

  26. I love your post dear friend. Your trip to Ireland sounds awesome!
    I love your RL china, just gorgeous! Every detail and element is perfect for your St. Patty's celeb.
    Thanks for dropping by.

  27. Oh my, your scones sound simply delicious! I love them, but rarely make them. Everything looks wonderful for St. Patty's. I especially love that mushroom! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  28. Such a pretty table. I hope you had a lovely day.

  29. Hi Emily, Yes, I would love to sit here and have a delicious scone and cup of tea and talk about Ireland and all the goodies on your table. The RL china is gorgeous!! And I could imagine living in that little leprechaun house and coming out to sit under the amazing mushroom. I miss Laura Ashley stores! I always found treasures there! I never would have thought to add the Anthro butter dish to this setting but I LOVE the way it pops like a small bright blossom in a meadow. Hope your St. P Day was happy. I think we need a blogger trip to Ireland. Linda
