Following is a link to another St Patrick’s Day blog carnival, this one in Northern Ireland. It is hosted by Janmary at Welcome to My World Janmary.
In honor of Saint Patrick, I invite you to a luncheon and tea. This setting started with vintage luncheon plates, cups and saucer in Hocking forest green “Charm”.
Since these are a simple square design, I decided to use other simple designs in my tablesetting. My Silver Sunday post showed the simple silverplate pieces I’ve chosen.
Green goblets by Libbey are accompanied by clear Vendange goblets. The linens are white Battenberg lace placemats and green and white napkins in a fern print.
The mixed silverplate flatware came from my mother and from thrift shops at 10 cents each.
The three-tier silverplate server was a gift from my Mother many years ago. Each level has a paper lace doily.
On the top tier is a small angel figurine with shamrock trimmed robe
A pastry server is near simple egg-shaped salt and pepper shakers
Clear candlesticks with simple form were a consignment shop find. The green tapers are from Walmart.
On either side the clear tulip votive candleholders are just two of about a dozen that I have—all from thrift shops at 25 cents, 50 cents or a dollar each. They’ve been placed in”Charm” berry bowls, they hold green votives from Family Dollar. A Paul Revere bowl holds a Battenberg lace roll napkin for scones.
A two-part server and a compote of a silver bowl on a candlestick are additional serving pieces.Here is a clean-lined silverplate tea set on a silverplate tray, along with a green bud vase. (Sorry that my photos are so poor!)Scattered around the table are paper cutouts of shamrock bunches.
Here I have tried to assemble a monochromatic table setting that is full of green color to evoke the Irish. I hope you enjoyed this design.
Wishing you all a happy St. Patrick’s Day
