This is a simple Spring tablescape I created for St. Patrick’s Day last year. I searched high and low here at the homestead and was shocked to find I do not have any St. Patrick Day decor. I did find some green so it will have to do.
When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, ’tis like the morn in Spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing.
When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, they steal your heart away.
An appetizer ottoman scape from the Condo last year, too.
An early Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you all!

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

I am inspired by all the lovely greens and the blossoms you have added!
Hi, Ellen! I think it’s an elegant ‘scape and very pretty. And girl, I want those goblets… ooooh, they are wonderful! I think St. Patrick would be proud to claim your tablescape as his own! 🙂

Oh so cute, love your green and the ottoman appetizer party is just darling. Your linens are equisite.
Thanks for the peek.
Ellen, both of these scapes are so pretty. I was trying to get a better look at your beautiful chair slipcovers. What a great idea to do an appetizer scape on the ottoman! It looks so pretty. laurie
Beautiful green goblets! Reminds me I have two similar ones, should have used them!
Pretty tablescapes, I like the chair covers too!
Very pretty, Ellen! 🙂
I love those little salt/pepper shakers!!!
I’m in the same boat Kat…I don’t have any St Patty dishes….Your ottoman and table turned out beautifully tho. Thanks xo much for stopping by my blog. I hope you come back soon. I enjoyed our visit/
Very pretty, happy green table. 🙂
Love that song, too.
I love all your green! The color on your walls is beautiful! I love the green goblets and the branches especially!
Absolutely lovely, Ellen! So fresh and full of delicate spring colors.
It is spectacular. Green is my favorite color. I love those tall green glasses, they are beautiful.
That is just beautiful and so appropriate. You are so talented 🙂
Ellen, You and I were on the same wave length this week. Even though you have no St Patrick’s Day decor, the green looks wonderful and is a perfect tribute to the Irish. I love the dishes with the beautiful floral branches. Looks like spring has arrived at your house!
Oooh…what a lovely green tablescape for St. Pat’s Day! Beautiful mosaics! I especially liked the photo in the first mosaic where the beautiful lilies were in the foreground and I could see that gorgeous dining room in the background! I do believe that you have the same olive green wall color in your dining room and I have in my living room and dining room! Anyway, your dining room is gorgeous and I love your beautiful tablescape! Love how you laid the branches with the little flower buds on the table…very pretty! Ohhh…and those green glasses are gorgeous! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful green tablescape with us…such a treat!!!
