Saint Patricks Day Tablescape

We are the music makers,
We are the dreamers of dreams
Wandering by the lone sea-breakers
And sitting by desolate streams:
World losers and world forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams,
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world forever, it seems.
~Arthur O'Shaughnessy~


Shawn's Homemade Irish Cream
recipe HERE

I love the above poem from an antique (circa 1887) book called The Poetry and Song of Ireland.  It has been on my want list for sometime but it is usually out of my price range. =(



The table is a setting I shared a couple of years ago.   I sor I mixed green transferware with some of my favorite Spode Byron and kept the shamrock theme minimal, only using some napkin rings I'd made from ponytail holders.


The placemats are actually napkins turned to an angle and allowing the corners to hang over the table. Isn't the trim wonderful?



Homemade Irish Cream truffles  recipe HERE) look so pretty on one of the plates.

I have some vintage green glassware that is perfect for St. Patricks Day






We really like to cover a big scoop of coffee ice cream with crunched up heath bars, and
 top it off with Irish Cream.  It's so good! Yum.


Happy Saint Patricks Day!
