St. Patty’s Appetizer Setting ~

Yippee! It’s time to set and see some tablesettings from around the Blogisphere. Susan at Between Naps on the Porch is our hostess for this weekly event. If you ever have a table setting you want to share you can join in, too. Click on the image above to get to Susan’s blog where you can see more tablescapes.


My tablescape today is actually an ottoman scape. It’s St. Patty’s Day appetizer setting for two. I got these great artichoke plates at Goodwill a couple weeks ago for 99 cents each!


We’re going a little Irish here so there’s some good Jameson Whiskey for the gentleman of the house and a nice Irish Guinness for the lady of the house.


I think I’ll have to play my Cd by the Chieftains while we enjoy our artichoke appetizers.



I will be making the traditional Corn Beef and Cabbage with potatoes next Tuesday but I wanted to share a little Irish with you for Tablescape Thursday. Enjoy…

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage unless I pay them a lot of money. I’m slowly cleaning up many posts from this time period and deleting their ugly grey and black boxes with a ransom request. Such a time consuming bother.
