Welcome to Seasonal Sundays.

It’s so fun to dress your house up a bit for each of the holidays.

St. Patrick’s Day is no exception…

…even if you’re not the least bit Irish.

I recently found these little shamrock pots at a local consignment shop and couldn’t resist.

After I used this little creamer and sugar at my meeting this week (you can see it HERE) I pulled it into my vignette. The cake stand was a gift from Kathleen a couple of years ago.

Changing out the vignette on my kitchen counter makes me smile each time I walk in.
One thing, BEFORE you link up, please be certain that you are a FOLLOWER. Thank you!

Not sure what might be wrong but your thumbnails are too wide for your blog page...some of them are hidden behind the sidebar...Or...is it just my computer??

Thanks for hosting SS again,

Lovely St. Patty's Day decor. The dishes are too cute.

Bourbon & Pearls said...

Your China is so pretty, hub's family are Irish but we don't tend to do much, when I live din the US, St Patrick's Day was bigger than it was here in Scotland, the best part was I used to get free coffee and buns etc all day because folk thought I was Irish!

Dear Tablescaper!

I want to thank you so much for coming to leave me a comment today! I have never met you before, and it is a pleasure to find you. Your invitation to link up to your Sunday get-together is SO KIND, but I have a very unpredictable schedule with my art and writing responsibilities. I will bow out at this time, but I am truly flattered by your invitation!

Loving the idea of St. Patrick's day; I am not Irish, but I lived in Boston where they REALLY know how to celebrate, Irish-American style! Love Irish culture and music. ENJOY! Anita

I love the white with just bits 'o green mixed in for a sophisticated but still very Irish look! That's some cake stand Kathleen gave you! Cool!

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

Love, love the pots and shamrock plants. I am Irish and I still don't put out anything around here...I really should pay more attention to the 'green holiday" shouldn't I?

Tea in Texas said...

Love your vignette with the shamrock pots! Cute idea of using the chalkboard as a greeting. The setting you had for your meeting is lovely and I know your guest appreciated the wonderful food. I love to visit consignment stores for it is always a surprise what you find.

This is very pretty St. Patrick day table. Altho, very Irish around here, I usually don't decorate for St. Patrick's day. I hope to join in next week with a kinda late celebration we had.

Rachel Lloyd said...

All so incredibly pretty! I could stay on here for hours! Very inspiring I must say!
