I started with a green and white check I got on clearance online from Boscovs. I then used a crocheted runner to break up the green a bit.
I decided to go for a green, gold and white theme so I started with a gold charger, followed by a thrift store plate with green ivy, our every day Gibson salad plate. On one of my many thrift shopping trips, the luck of the Irish was with me as, I found napkins that also have ivy on them!
Another thrift find is a small gold rimmed Irish coffee glass. If you look closely you will see a little shamrock in the stem.
Wanting to get a bit more of the green, I made lime jello and used the coffee glasses as dessert glasses.
I also used a set of ivy salt & peppers on the table.
My vintage gold plated flatware makes another appearance.
Irish crystal stemware and, because he is half Irish, pint glasses for a nice cold Irish Red home brewed just for today by Mr. B, emblazed with his own custom label.
I put the centerpiece together using a cake plate, a shamrock wreath, a sweet little leprechaun, some gold coins, and a small plaque.Irish crystal candlesticks complete the table.
I know I am a bit early to the party but with so many to attend I wanted to be sure I was ready! I am notorious for being unfashionably early. First to arrive, last to leave is my motto! Sláinte friends!
