My Stepmom is coming to visit us this weekend and I’m looking forward to seeing her. She said we’ll go to lunch and go shopping and have girl time. My daughter is super excited to see her too. Sounds fun huh?
We are going to make dinner Sunday for her and I thought it would be fun to set a St. Patrick’s Day Table since I am 1/4 Irish…..lol.
So as we know it’s not a huge holiday, just a fun festive, or should I say spirited one. There may be corned beef and cabbage and a possible apple martini or green beer or two.
I love the challenge to come up with something that didn’t cost much and here’s what I did.
My big splurge was the GORGEOUS cream and green roses in the center. LOVE them. I found these at Vons and I have had such great luck with their flowers many times having them last almost two weeks.
Here’s how I did it. I started with my empty table.
I added a plain cream tablecloth first. Then I was thinking black and white would be so fun, but hmmm I don’t really have anything in that color scheme. I grabbed a bolt of wrapping paper and made a runner for down the center.
Then I layered the brown wicker placemats I found before Thanksgiving and also used for the Mexican Dinner Party too.
The one thing I bought was this pack of clovers at the Dollar Store.
Remember the clear plates I found before the Mexican Dinner party?? I laid a clover down and the glass plate over top of it. Just for a punch of color.
The other day I made these cute Place Settings with Scotch tape and shared my St. Patrick’s Day Place Settings here.
I made napkins with some green and white floral fabric I had and I had bought these silver blingy napkin rings at a thrift store recently for $2.00 for two packs (and they had $10 tags on them woo hoo).
I had fun making some drinks for the table and my husband came in from work and asked if we were having company…lol. I just told him I wanted to greet him with an Apple Martini.
I’ll share the drink recipes soon too. We made a few non alcoholic ones for the kiddos too.
So I love the way the table turned out and now I just have to figure out what we’re serving for dinner. I’m looking forward to a fun weekend with family.
How about you? Do you celebrate the St. Patrick’s Day holiday or not??
