Did you know the correct response is
"And the rest of the day to you!"
Ok, so it isn't morning anymore, but things didn't fall into place like I had planned. I had a few errands to run this morning that kept me from playing. All I wanted to do was go home and set my table!
I was able to! Get ready for picture overload! I wanted an Irish theme without it screaming Happy St Pat's Day! I wanted to be able to use the elements in other themes.
The "doh!" choice for a table cloth was green. I really wanted an emerald green one but couldn't find one. I guess I know what I will be on the hunt for at Christmas! I found this battenburg lace topper at Home Goods and thought it would be perfect in the center.
I used my favorite plates as the base, a green depression glass salad plate I found at the antique store for $3 and another salad plate that I found at Pier One. It is called the "doily plate".
I love how the plates mimic the layered tablecloths. A matching green dinner napkin with a simple silver napkin ring tops it all off.
This silver is new to the farmhouse! I found it at the antique store also. I just love this set! Next week there will be a post about it and how to polish silver.
An unusual part of this set is it came with not only all the serving pieces but 2 children sized place settings. Isn't it sweet?
I used a simple flute, water glass and Irish Coffee mug to finish the setting.
I also used a green beer mug that I got at the Dollar Store for a little treat for the kids, including my big kid. I used a balloon weight in the center, a little shredded paper for filler and some gold chocolate coins.
So there it is, my table I have been planning for the last 2 weeks.
