A St Pat's Repeat Tablescape

There was so much leftover from St Pat's that I did another table last weekend.

Come on in and see!

I found this tablecloth while looking for a dark green one. How could I resist when it was on clearance?

It's an acrylic fabric with embroidered edges. Most of the edging is in white but every now and then there is a pale green shamrock. The corners have a little bit heavier embroidering.

I used my everyday dishes this time. I love the square dishes! I got these from Pier 1 a few years ago. I thought I was doing good since they sell these by the piece, not as a set. If one was broken, I could just replace that one piece. They have foiled my plan and since discontinued them. The salad plates are ones that I picked up on a after Christmas sale at Home Goods. They have a pattern on half of the plate. The rose fold napkin is covering it, but when the napkin is removed it shows.

I also used the new silver. I found out this pattern is called Danish Princess by Holmes & Rogers. It was introduced in 1938. A little handwashing, dry and buffing and they look as great as when I first polished them.

I kept everything simple since this was a late lunch/early Sunday dinner meal. Even the food was reinvented leftovers from St Pat's Day. It was such a casual meal that I even forgot to put out the glasses before taking the pics!

Your tablecloth is just beautiful and I like the way you folded the napkins. I liked your earlier post on polishing silver too. :) I guess I'm crazy but I love polishing silver. Thank you so much for your comments on my ramen noodle post. Have a great Thursday.

I want to eat dinner at your house :)

The storms have just about passed! Nervous night for all :(
We are not sure what Baby Girl is. LOL!
One night a car drove past our old livestock barn, (we were on the porch) they opened their car door and let her out. Can you imagine?!
So she may have a little Corgi, Jack Russell...who knows! Same story with our Black and Tan, Sadie Louise!
Animal dumping here in the mountains is horrid!
I hope to get commenting on Friday. I have been resting a lot in between what has to be taken care of when J isn't here. See you soon, Maggie!

Hi, Maggie! Oh, my gosh...I have the Danish Princess flatware, too! My Mom got it way back in the 1950s. Wait...what am I saying? I was BORN "way back in the 1950s"!!! I'm slamming myself! ANYWAY......I love it! Pier 1 'em. Gotta grab as many as you can, though, while the gettin' is good. I did the same thing you did, and I have regretted it. I hit every store in the region until I come up with as many as I think I will need over the next 20 years! :-) I really like the soup tureen in the center of the table, too. It goes nicely with your dishes. I hope you will enter the Mikasa Giveaway I am hosting on my blog through March 30. Just enter your best Spring tablescape for a chance to win six 5-pc. place settings of Mikasa's "Daylight" pattern dishes. They are FABULOUS for spring and summer tables!!!
